Guardiola unconcerned by Supercup defeat to Dortmund

Guess what Pep said about it being inexcusable if they did lose was just PR talk then.

Guardiola is not a tactician, he just teaches his team to play a certain way. It worked well for a while at Barcelona until they had forgotten how to do the basics (crosses, headers, basically anything where you risk losing the ball) and became one dimensional. By the end of his reign all Barcelona could do against tactically superior teams was pass the ball around the middle of the pitch waiting for an opening that never materialised.

Say what you like about the tactic of 'parking the bus' and counter attacking but Guardiola had no answer for it and got out swiftly when teams like Chelsea/Celtic succeeded with it.
