I tend to have more (max/peak) pleasure from a blistering counterattack (Leicester 15/16 and Mourinho's teams) than I do from a more deliberate style of play (e.g. Guardiola).

I don't think it's contrarian to think that either. As @GLewis said, we probably struggle to remember the majority of the match. Many will probably get more pleasure overall from typical Guardiola, but I prefer the raw athleticism allayed with skill of direct football.

That's not to say that Guardiola teams can't do that, they do, but it's not what I would associate them with.

In the past I wouldn’t say they have but he’s got Sane and DeBruyne in this side who are purely athletic direct midfielders who don’t know the meaning of passive possession, but he’s of course getting what he needs out of them.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

And he's got a keeper capable of pinging a 50 yard pass on a sixpence over a high press when needed, so he's developed and adapted his style to combat those who combated the earlier inception of tiki-taka.

Kathie: Is there a way to win?
Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.
