Ithaca via Amsterdam (Oleguer signs for Ajax)



Economics graduate, activist, author, and occasional footballer Oleguer has left Barcelona and signed for Ajax, who paid 3 million euros for his services. Ole has been at the club for seven years and is a Cule through and through. However, playing time has been scarce for him in the last few seasons, especially 07-08, during which he was struck by a string of injuries, and he came to an understanding with the club to move on. He will join fellow La Masia grad Gabri Garcia at Ajax, and was supposedly recommended to Marco van Basten by Frankie Rijkaard himself.

Goodbye, comrade. And good luck.


My long-delayed match report for the game against Dundee in a few hours, with a short preview for the Viola game, and unfortunately more drama to report.
