People seem to be of the opinion that getting Guardiola would be amazing, and of course we all know how supremely successful he was at Barca. In no way am I rubbishing his accomplishments but the truth is that any squad that contained Xavi, Iniesta and Messi is likely to be one of europes best and they would walk into any team.
However, does the fact that Guardiola did a great job at Barcelona automatically mean he could turn LFC into champions league and title contenders? Coaching Lionel Messi and Xavi is one thing, coaching Andy Carroll and Jay Spearing is another. I guess what I'm saying is, it would be unreasonable to assume that because Guardiola did so well at Barca that he would automatically translate the same style of play and coaching methods to LFC. It's just not that simple.
If Guardiola came to Liverpool and we finished 5th or 6th, would people still respect him the way they do now?
