Time wont forget what Pep has achieved domestically with ourselves, however these last 2 years are going to be pivotal in how he will be remembered - both us as fans but also how the media will run with it

Pep finds himself in a scenario he has never had to fathom let alone manage - a rebuild

After 18 months of dropped form, loss of intensity etc etc it is paramount that this shuffle of the pack will not only bring instant results but also leave the building blocks for whoever comes after

2 years is not that long a period in footballing terms, so the signings are going to have to be both young enough but of a super high quality so they can hit the ground running

Question is, will that be achievable as the holy grail of the CL title is going to be super high on the agenda

Pep is going to be remembered on how he handles this rebuild of the squad and what it achieves for the remainder of his time

Not much pressure then, but one he and those that are involved need to get right

I repeat, he picks the player's coaches them and sets up the tactics before and during the game. Although Rodders isn't up to the job, that's not through lack of effort.
Signing Mahrez as talented as he is, made no sense then and less now. Who pushed that deal?

Wasn't Mahrez signed since we missed out on Sanchez ?

What he did at Aberdeen was exceptional in winning trophies from the Glasgow clubs. Ferguson spent big at United but he also successfully integrated academy players into the first team and turned them into world class players. Something Guardiola hasn't done And until he does he will be dubbed as a 'chequebook manager' by many.

You are ignoring the timelines.
It was 5 years before Ferguson bought through the family man, the first of the truly class players (if terrible human being) that he brought through from the youth team.
This is Peps 5th season and he has already brought through Foden.

I know it was 5 years. I don't expect Guardiola to successfully bring as many academy through to become established first teamers as Fergie but a few more than Foden would be good, local lads even better.

Sadly we could've done with Sancho playing for us. I hope I don't have to say that about Foden. I also think Doyle will bring more to that DM position than Rodri. Palmer seems like a very intelligent player. Delap is apparently the 'real deal' and Braaf is supposed to be the next Sane.

The profit we've made from previous academy prospects was because they were not up to our standards. I think after the Bournemouth game Pep said he finally has academy prospects:

Pep Guardiola said: "When we arrived [in 2016], we had Jadon Sancho, Phil Foden - there were good players, But right now, we have a good generation. Taylor, Tommy Doyle, Cole, Felix Nmecha, Braaf, Delap - there are six, seven interesting players – James McAtee, too!"

Which means he is planning to play them.
Just lip service, he will demand nee players and will get

I can see that unfolding as you say, unfortunately.
Look no further than this forum. Our kids are never ready to play and we should Buy a striker we should buywinger we should buy a CM. We all know a new striker plus Jesus means end of road for Delap. A new wide player means end of road for Braaf and a new CM/DM means end of road for Doyle while I don't see any way for Palmer too. Call me negative flapper etc but this is what will happen. I would loved to be proved wrong.

Like Foden, if they’re good enough then they’ll make it.

The idea that we shouldn’t buy a striker just because we’ve got a half decent but very young striker in the academy is just bizarro talk to be honest.

I mean, if we went out and bought Haaland are you saying that you’d be disappointed in the club?

We all know that do we? Can't say I remember you getting voted in to be the voice of all.
