That would be a meager return given the hype that greeted Guardiola's appointment last year to replace Manuel Pellegrini, the Chilean who managed to lead City to the Champions League semifinals with much less fanfare.Guardiola was hailed as a revolutionary who would dazzle the Premier League with his purist principles when he arrived at City from Bayern Munich.City have never been the same since and Guardiola has become increasingly tetchy, unsettling his players with constant team changes, grumbling his way through media interviews and generally giving the impression of a man uncomfortable in his new surroundings.The nadir seemed to have come at Goodison Park in January when City crumbled to a 4-0 defeat that ranks as Guardiola's heaviest as a manager. While Guardiola will be given plenty of time to solve City's problems, it suddenly seems far from certain he will come up with the right answers.
