had to read that twice to make sure it said what i thought it said!
City's situation is the total opposite. We have a Director of Football-based model which we've had for about ten years which means our player buys/sales are planned meticulously and which ensures continuity when managers leave. It ensure that the club have a style and ethos throughout all levels. We've seen it in action perfectly for that decade already and it will continue when we have to replace Pep. The way our board operates we will know he is leaving, and presumably appoint a successor, way in advance of it happening. Look at what happened with the Pellegrini/Pep handover.I hope we learn from the fiasco at the swamp when Fergie retired. We need to identify Pep's successor and bring him in for a year to learn from Pep and work with Txiki so the transition when Pep does leave is a smooth one and we continue to play the same quality and style of football & don't try to get the players new systems that they're not suited to.
