Well. First off hats off to the City board for deciding not to sack Pellegrini at the end of last season as I thought they would. I still think holding out hope for Guardiola, or even Jurgen Klopp, is a bit much when you do have a very good manager in Pellegrini. I get the point about the step up in status with Guardiola but will that really be necessary if Pellegrini wins all before him? The author is probably right though, whatever Pellegrini does this season might not be enough unless something happens that puts off the Guardiola plan further. He does need to change that 4-4-2 as well.
