Man City’s bubble will burst we see the same with cheap sea United always build slowly. fergie always said it takes 5years to build a team we have a plan just have patience.

When Ferguson said I doubt he took into account that team will be spending 100mn every season.

Joey. I think you'll be waiting a long time for their bubble to burst. Guadiola has got them playing like Barcelona and they work very hard at retrieving the ball and creating space when they have it.
It's up to us to change our ways and go up to their level.

I think many people fail to appreciate that Pep inherited a far better team than Jose did, he has then gone on to spend 100m more than Jose has to further improve his team which as mentioned was in better shape to begin with.

I'm pretty sure if Jose had matched Pep's spending we would be a lot closer to City than we are right now. People keep mentioning the need for better full backs, or more depth in midfield, or a creative forward player. We could have two or three of those positions filled if Jose had spent that extra 100m.

So let's not pretend Pep is some kind of god, he is a very good manager, possibly the best in the world at the moment. But he has City playing great football because he has had the money to sign the players he needs.

He has spent around 300m on a squad that already was settled in the top four and a squad that had won the league only two seasons before he took over. A team that had players such as Kompany, Yaya Toure, Fernandinho, Silva, De Bryune and Aguero already in situ. Proven world class players, proven winners.

Will this Man City bubble burst? Of course it will. They always do. How long until it does is harder to answer. But let's consider that Pep isn't keen on staying in one place for too long. I can't see him staying at City for more than a couple more years at most.

After a lot of debate people are starting to come round to the idea that pep is a very good manager.

There's a reason why Pep took the City job. Imagine him at Liverpool or Spurs, would they be dominating?

Sepp Blogger you hit the nail on the head.

For what it's worth I think Pep is a good manager. He's not exactly had it difficult in his managerial career - Barcelona, Bayern and now City all have had top players and have been amongst the best teams in their leagues.

The big test for him now is winning a champions league without the trio of Messi/ Iniesta/ Xavi - I genuinely think 95% of managers would have won with these players especially in their prime. His record at Bayern is tainted by the failures in the champions league.

City will dominate until, as per usual, Pep gets bored and leaves of his own accord in a few years. Probably full circle back to Barca.

If we had Pep and City had Jose, I've got a feeling we'd be several points clear at the top of the league instead of them.

He identified the problems and fixed them to a level. We are much slower to do this, we sign players that don't fit the way the manager wants to play (I don't see a logical plan anyway), or players that compliment one another - there is very little cohesion throughout the team still. We also play negative football, that doesn't work when you have teams that are so focused on attack like City as we are seeing that negative football can be effective for the most part despite playing rank average most games as a team. It's WBA Pulis tactics with better players.

We should have signed Kane years ago as well.

I think pep is going to have to take over at Sunderland and guide them to champions league glory to convince everyone that he is the best around.
