Its a case of looking at the players he had at Barca and the money made avilable to him, neither of which we have, and when your team has Xavi, Iniesta, Messi, Fabregas, Mashcerano, Villa, Alves etc its a lot easier to be successfull then who he has to work with at clubs like ours.
Ya but when he took over he had Valdes, Puyol,Messi,Iniesta and Xavi....... not the rest you quoted. they were added later with Pep in charge
He built the team around them, added the right players, and brought through a few gems (busquets,Pedro)
I hate this shit that he inherited a team an he takes nothin.... Rafa took over from Mourinho with the same players the won the CL and that went haywire.
