I think it's funny that back then they actually thought they had a chance with Pep.Relevant Cafe thread
Since he took over City they have spent 850m which is a insane amount but in that time we spend 700m and most here will agree we spent it awfully and gave it too the wrong managers etc. But if Pep came here instead and he spent 700m do you think we win the league ? Yes city had a better base...www.redcafe.net
Our club brought in Txiki and Soriano. Since day one the club has been trying to emulate the past successful structure at Barcelona (not the current one, yucks), the managerial hot seat has always been primed for Pep to sit on. There was no way Pep was going anywhere else post-Bayern.
Going by the way their club is ran, I'm pretty sure if Pep did take over them, he would have left the club by now.
