For a very long time I have always loved transfer deadline day, it brings so much action, so much expectation, surprise deals and disappointments...if you are a Gunner like me. It always had me glued to my TV set. I was so much ready for this 2016 January Transfer Deadline day...but the excitement was lost, just because of one man, this one man is PEP GUARDIOLA!!! Transfer Deadline day because of him became about the coach and not the players moving, and all discussion tended towards what he was going to do at Manchester City, if he will still be hungry enough to perform at Bayern and many "how"! Hmmmmmmmmm
The transfer window officially closed yesterday, and it closed on a five-year high in clubs’ spending. All that money being handed out was still overshadowed by the news of Pep Guardiola replacing Manuel Pelegrini as Manchester City boss. The 45-year-old will move to City in the summer on a three-year contract. Pep is indeed getting set to rule the world. He conquered La Liga, added Bundelisga and now he wants to take the Premier League. I am surely looking forward to having him resume at the Ethiad. Its indeed going to be a very interesting season. Will he able to achieve all he had done previously and as quickly as he got them? I very well doubt it. He would need to build this team to his taste, add some players and send some away as well. The competition is stiff in England, a look at the January transfers sends a chill down the spine of the "Big Teams" in England, the "small teams" are no push overs and are recruiting to mess up any "bridge" capture any "emirate" or make a "lackhart lane". I am happy for Guardiola, but I havejust one wish to make the 2016-2017 season a historical season... just one wish... Manchester United, pleaseeeeeeeeee sack LVG and bring in the Special One.
The battle will be fiery and fierce, bitter old enemies, in charge of arch old rivals for the soul of the city of Manchester! just like old times.
