To be fair to Guardola, although he has spent, it’s not the same as Chelsea have done, or Mourinho at Man U.
He has a first team where the best players were already there and some of the first team regulars like Sterling,Stones and Delph are not exactly world class.
If you go through their first team there are only a few that could be described as world class like Aguero, Silva, De Bruyne, who were already there, and Sane, who he bought.
In fact most of those players, when they first went there, were players we could have had, if we had been a bit more proactive.
If you look at their dominance this season, it has very little to do with individual world class players winning them matches, it’s more to do with having the best manager in football, organising very good players, into a system that clearly works.
A lot of the players he has bought were well within our reach when he bought them but we lack the ambition to do so.
You could also argue that if our board had any ambition, we could have had Guardiola as well.
I know they have spent money but considering they had a lot of catching up to do with Chelsea and Man U and haven’t broken any transfer records by buying world class players, they have done a pretty good job.
