Media are ruthless in most major football countries though. What major teams are there in Europe where the media isn't ruthless if you don't do well? There's no such thing as a stress free managerial job at a top team in Europe but I'd imagine Barca internally is a much better culture to work in than somewhere like Madrid or Chelsea. External factors will always drive top managers to the brink of insanity with stress but that's just the culture we live in right now.
they bag you when you're doing well too. at least the madrid based papers do. you don't really get that in ungurlund.
when pep started out barca were an absolute rabble. shit egos, shit board members, conflicts etc. obviously he got the on pitch part sorted out, but im not too sure how rosy peachy it was behind the scenes, especially near the end there.
