news round-up: transfers!

Since we last spoke:

+ Gianluca Zambrotta has left us for AC Milan. The fee is said to be around 9 million euros, possibly rising to 12 million depending on performance. Personally, I'm gutted to see him go.

+ Gio Dos Santos has also left us, for Spurs, in a deal worth 6 million now, with the possibility of rising up to 11 millon (again depending on performance). I'm not pleased he's gone (I'm never pleased when we sell a player from the youth system), but there were a number of factors pointing to his departure, not all of them controllable by him.

+ On a happier note, Pep has finally put pen to paper on his two-year coaching deal. His no.2 will be Tito Vilanova, who has been his right-hand man in the B team. Tito will be familiar to the likes of Messi, Pique and Bojan, as he's coached in the youth system for a while.

+ Sylvinho has renewed for another season! [On a personal note, can I just say, yay!]

+ We've signed young Uruguayan defender Martin Caceres from Villarreal for 16 million euros. He's a fantastic prospect. [Ignore the dodgy fashion sense and bad hair. Actually, now that I think about it, that means he'll fit right in.]

+ Next season's Gamper trophy opponents will be Boca Juniors. [Riquelme back at the Camp Nou? Fantastic.]


I'll be spamming your flists again in the next few days to tell you guys about some new features we (0ntheverge and I, your friendly neighbourhood mods) have planned for the comm. Until then, take care.
