Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
Whilst I have no admiration for Sheikh nor oligarch money in football, nor for the riches of the Premier League in general, I do think that we have by far the best two managers in Europe in Klopp and Guardiola. Pep was brilliant at Barca, the passing game coupled with the hit squad of Xavi, Iniesta and Messi imperious, and he's advanced City to way beyond their level of competence. Klopp's strength is that he really knows how to train players as well as to inspire the team (and crowd) to believe in the themselves. All other managers look like minnows, with the exception of Poch at Spurs.
