    Unfortunately 1 year sounds like Pep and will be another thing the British media will fail to understand as will some of our fan base.

    He does 1 year because he does not want to be too comfortable, he is also a man of his word and treats contracts with the way they are intended and not a security blanket against being sacked.

    If he wanted 5 years I’m sure the club would give it him, us fans would rejoice but Pep knows it does not get the best out of him.

    There is a reason he is the best and this is one of them!!

    It would also be one year, with a year still to run, so it's not like at Barca, where he made the decision to extend during the last year of his contract.

    For Pep to allegedly agree an extension halfway through his contract, says something about how he sees his situation at City imo.

    Yep in Pep confidential he says he looks in the players eyes and he knows if they are still behind him. When that goes he goes.

    Has he never won the CL as a manager?

    The only main problem was the referees decision making.

    Exactly pal. Some of the previous comments seem to suggest its s gap in Pep’s CV!!!

    The narrative is, that he 'only' won it with Barca, therefore, there must be something wrong with his methods.

    If he tactically arranged to get totally dicked by Bayern Munich, lead a charmed life, then score two goals in the last min from corner kicks, he would be a true football genius.

    Fuck this passing football lark, who needs that ?

    Watched the 2011 final while on holiday in Tenerife. A family of rags (from Plymouth!), all with brand new rag tops on, were on a table near the main TV. They were not amused when they saw my City polo shirt.. We went in another room and watched the game. I went back into the bar at the final whistle and they had, unsurprisingly, disappeared! The restaurant owner said that they had left when Barca's 3rd goal went in, and never said a word.

    They'd probably had practice at leaving before the end a month earlier, also at Wembley. I forget who beat them that day.

    Give Pep what he wants.

    Let's try and get Pep to stay for as long as we can.
