Yeah that's it. They'll be selling Rose and Alderweireld this season, both of whom were very important players. But they both fluttered their eyelashes elsewhere, and Poch just wasn't having it. He doesn't give a fuck who you are and what your rep is (maybe Kane aside). He's already got Alderweireld's replacement in with half a season under his belt, and I dare say they've prepared a replacement for Rose. Brilliant, ruthless management. If you're not totally with us, you're against us.
It sounds simple in theory. Insist on a high energy, high press style of play to overwhelm the opposition and buy players young enough to fit that style. Then put an arm around players to bring them together as a group but know that they're all dispensable should the need arise.
As ever with management in all professions though you need the personality to execute it and the mentality to demand people buy into you but that's only a small % of the population. Him and Guardiola stand out as they're the epitome of it.
You'd like to think there are some young coaches out there looking at them two and striving to learn every detail in order to attempt to emulate it. This is where your Director of Football should be conducting his searches and if he can't find one that's already out there then trying to identify individuals who stand out and who we could invest in and mould, with the right level of support and backing.
