Pep Guardiola presented (w/transfer bombshells)



We now formally have a new manager. Well, he's now off on vacation after a season of hard work with the B team, but he'll back on the 22nd to present players and argue with Txiki about transfers.

+ Speaking of the B team, the official website has a summary of their great season.

+ If anyone still doesn't know anything about our new manager, they've got a bio up as well.

+ Guardiola said a number of interesting things in his press conference, spread out over two reports on the official site.

Main points:



+ Ronaldinho, Eto'o and Deco are probably leaving, although he didn't completely discount the possibility of any one of them staying should a transfer not be worked out. [I will be back to write a post lamenting this eventually. Especially Sammy, God.]

+ Thierry Henry and Rafa Marquez are staying. [Yay!]

+ Training will be behind closed doors before and after match days.

+ We're still looking to sign a striker and maybe a winger.

+ There will be an increased emphasis on the collective game. For example, the forwards have to take their defensive responsibilites seriously.



ETA: a great article about Guardiola's coaching style, via Google Translate. To give you an idea, comparisons are made to Sacchi and Mourinho. [Slightly scared now.]
