I got this idea by reading a post of PLF in the Bayern thread. Guardiola will be Bayern's new coach and he will have this fantastic squad of players. Of course Guardiola dserves praise for all he achieved until now, but sometimes i would like to see him as manager/coach of a club like Hull City, Cardiff or Sunderland or even Notts County...would he succeed with lesser players ? I always had the same thoughts about Cruijff as a coach...not that it's easy to coach all these stars, but if they are happy, the odds that a coach winssilverware with such a team are much higher. One could say that last year Heynckes was the most succesfull coach in the world. Nobody will argue about that...but was he also the best. Look (for example) what Laudrup achieved with Swansea or in Belgium what Dury achieved with Zulte Waregem (the previous season they narrowly avoided relegation and Dury led them to a second place). Sir Alex Ferguson is the most succesfull coach in English history. But does that make him "the best" ? How would he have done as coach of Zulte Waregem, Hartlepool or Queen of the South ? Your thoughts on this. Is the coach who wins the most silverware also the best and would caches who are succesfull with big clubs do well with lesser. Would Ferguson have avoided relegation with QPR ?
