The reaction after Chelsea 1:3 (including Chelsea own goal) was hilarious. Pep lost the game, but won the tactical battle! Then typical Pep's sore loser bs - we played better, and should have won, we had so many shots etc etc.
Truth is, it was a typical Pep's big game, very high risk with 10 players on the attack and obvious to beat. Every coach can do that, except most wouldn't put those 99% possesion chains on their players resulting in loads of half chances instead of proper ones. It's also not that Pep is so dominant, it's just his crazy tactics force anyone with a brain who doesn't want to go for a random game and attackers overload to adapt. Neither is that beautiful football, as most of the time it's just boring handball esque around-the-circle stuff, at least for me.
Pep, imo, wasted an incredible Bayern squad and a few players in their peak on his bs and was a mistake. Ancelotti, a known league choker is still first playing a bad formation with the same players though much older and an ancient Alonso as a starter. Not to mention that he still seems to have to teach the defence basics of defending after the Pep craze. What's also funny is that sore loser Pep tried to put the blame on the club, making it widely known how he wants a full control over transfers and I can only wonder, what will the excuse be at MC now.
I like him on human level despite all that, you grow accustomed to people you share wins and losses with. As someone in the comments section put it though, Pep was so sharp that he cut himself. Again, I'd add.
