Premier League – Manchester City: Pep Guardiola, the price of perfection

When an impossible thing happens again and again, it is because it has not been. PSG, Chelsea and now Manchester City have succumbed to Madrid’s spells, as if Real’s famous “European DNA” really exists not only in statistics, in journalistic references and in the fact that genetics had to be the same. , as soon as it set out to conquer Europe, it had the opportunity to afford the best on the market to achieve this, from Di Stefano to Zidane, from the dune to Ronaldo, from Pusko to Benzema.

The magic trick, if any, is not the most subtle. This does not prevent him from causing his effect. Manchester City is different, and so is its coach. Given the billion that Sheikh Mansour has invested in offering this coach the apostles who can best carry the word of the game, according to Saint Pep, this new failure shows that another magic, almost a curse, works for them. Turned bus and Ancelotti’s video: behind-the-scenes in a wild night in Madrid Mourinho, perhaps, was not the genius that others proclaimed. We know this song because it was sung to us in Munich before it was offered to us in Manchester. “Besides Messi …” – everything else you know. That’s too much. Not even far from funny. But there is no shortage of truth here. The eight failures Because what we experienced in Madrid was a perfect match for a long-running story: not Real, but Pepo Guardiola and his teams in Spain, Germany and England. , which have not only a common style but also an unusual tendency to collapse in the face of certain obstacles, almost always near the end of the road. Guardiola participated in thirteen Champions League tournaments as a coach. He won twice with Barsa – in 2009 and 2011. Another eleven times, eight removals were directly related to unexpected and sudden collapses. Here are the details. 2009-2010 In the semi-finals against Inter, Barcelona missed two goals in thirteen minutes (final score 1: 3). 2013-2014 – three out of eighteen with Bayern and Real Madrid, still halfway. (0-4) .2014-15 in three out of seventeen. The opponent, brutally, was Barca that evening (0: 3). It was still a semi-final. two out of eight. Monaco lost 5: 3 to City in the eighth final, but those goals will eventually change. 2017-2018 three out of nineteen against Liverpool in the halves (0: 3). 2018-2019 two out of three, still in the halves, this time against Tottenham (4-3, elimination due to away goals). 1-3) And finish 2021-22. Three goals in six minutes in Madrid (1-3) How Guardiola lost the coaches fight As we mentioned above when the impossible repeats and repeats, it was because it was not. From time to time, anyone can drown. Former Manchester City player Nedum Onuoha, who was just reminded of the series of disasters Guardiola suffered on the Guardian podcast, said the team had never been more vulnerable than when they had just lost, especially outside. Undoubtedly, it was true, just as true, that the team is also vulnerable when they just score a goal and, whether they want it or not, relaxes enough to experience a moment of relaxation. However, this does not explain why and how teams specifically designed to have as much control over the ball and the game as possible can put their foot down so regularly, almost as predictably, as they approach their dream goal. No, among the “big ones”, it’s not just PSG that knows how to beat itself out like this. Guardiola is true in the game. Some leaders like chaos, such as two of these 2021-2022. Champions League finalists Jürgen Klopp and Carlo Ancelotti are probably the two most inspired and effective coaches of our time. change the tactical setup or make major changes in the middle of the game. Guardiola? No. In his opinion, there is really truth in the game: he can be reached at the foot of the rainbow, at least close enough to illuminate it. The best way to do this is to repeat the sequences and combinations. But to repeat, over and over again, is it always progress? Or maybe it becomes a kind of Penelope, tearing down his tapestry to remake it and remaking it to cancel it, and Ulis never comes to the studio door? When the machine gets stuck, those who make it work are so surprised that they forget the gestures he made without thinking a few moments ago, like a centurion in a German fairy tale asked how he managed to work with all the accessories at once. and who, paralyzed by the question and unable to answer it, found himself paralyzed. It’s Philo Foden’s gaze after Rodrygo scores his second goal. No one prepared him for this scenario, and his partners were just him, given their lack of reaction and misunderstanding. Manchester City have completely ceased to exist during the extension following Karim Benzema’s penalty. Fatigue wasn’t the only reason, nor was any of the mysterious spells Real caused against its rivals. The minds of the townspeople seem to have violated the immutable law. As if it were not up to them to punish those who violated it. Immersed in chaos, football players as talented and imaginative as Bernardo Silva and Riyad Mahrez have lost the gifts of improvisation; and Man City hacked one, two, three times, not the first time. And here’s how we can get around in a circle by playing triangles. Premier League From one Manchester club to another?
