Pep's Best Team

Recommended Posts

BBC just published an argument starting kit.

I was picking players based on their form for Guardiola, not a wholistic sense of their career. So that means even though I think Ibrahimovic is amazing, he wasn't as much so under Guardiola so I couldn't pick him. Though Aguero was the iffiest player, I was tempted to shift Messi centrally and just throw David Silva on the right.

Mine is somewhat similar. 

Just Kompany for Pique and rotate Iniesta and KDB.

Kompany peaked under Mancini and Pelegrini though. I couldn't include a player that was on the downwind like that.

Yeah I'd agree. Think Kompany became even more injury prone under Pep.

Alves is a shoe in as he is arguably Peps greatest ever signing. You could make a point that Messi was utilised best as a false 9 under Pep and that Silva was City's most influential player bar KDB during 2017-2020. 

Don't think anyone will be able to get the ball off of them xD

Neuer

Alves  Pique  Puyol  Lahm

Busquets

KDB    Xavi

Messi

Silva                          Iniesta

His best Barca side was his best team.

Even if City win the UCL I still think they'd be his second best team compared to what he had at Barcelona.

I would say this but exchange Pedro for Eto’o

Neuer is far better than Valdes, a one handed Neuer is better than Valdes.

Can't argue with that but try getting the ball off that midfield when they were in their prime and Neuer isn't really required as much anymore imo.

Neuer's the best keeper since Buffon... but I'm not going to make a team that wasn't already assembled. I'm just picking Pep's best team.

I'm a lazy man, I'm not trying to shit on anyone's fun.

If I was going to make a "best of pep" it'd be the same team but with Neuer and Lahm in the starting XI instead, imo.
