I think next season will be a huge test of Pep. My own view is if you are to have a chance your defence needs sorted. I was reading up here that when VVD was with us, you were looking at him but decided not to put a bid in. Even though you have spent more on one defender than we have our team, to me, it's not fit for purpose and hasn't been for a few years.
So, yes if you fix the defence and no if you don't.
We have got an unbelievable wealth of talent upfront and in midfield. We are vulnerable in defence. Have been for a season or two. I turn up at The Etihad thinking we are gonna outscore most opponents but against teams that we need to deny every single point we have been vulnerable. Yer don't win a title with an 'iffy' defence.
