Our Manchester City fans here in the Transfer Tavern are hoping that Sunday sees Pep Guardiola pick up his first piece of Silverware in England.
Guardiola has been at Man City for just over 18 months now, and even though he found life tough in his first season, many of the regulars feel that he’s now adapted to the English game. The Spaniard has brought his personal brand of football to the Premier League, and with dazzling results too in the league, where they are all but mathematically confirmed as champions.
On Sunday, against what should be a hungry Arsenal side looking for their first league cup trophy under Arsene Wenger, they will contest their first final under his legendary watch. The Citizens in the bar are sure hoping for a better performance than that in the FA Cup on Monday night against League 1 outfit Wigan Athletic, where their dreams of a quadruple came crashing down.
Guardiola needs to have everyone on top form, furthermore, our landlord thinks that if these TWO players turn up, then City will no doubt be bringing home the Carabao Cup…
