    Re: The Football/Soccer Thread v2

    Arsenal have sent an official letter, signed by Tottenham, Liverpool and United officials, to the Chief Executive Officer of the Premier League. The letter was circulated at a meeting before Christmas and calls for restrictions the spending power of clubs like City and Chelsea.

    It's kinda funny that we do that after losing to them... but I agree with the letter.

    ...Did you check the date? Wait...yes you did, because you mentioned it. We didnt do anything like that.

    It was leaked by the Daily Mail who probably had it for a while and just waited for the most opportune time (i.e. teams losing).

    The clubs want the full FFP to come into force in the premier league as well it seems. FFP is already in force in the football league and for the clubs going into Europe but not for the ones in between (your Fulhams and wigans). But its not really an attack on City or Chelsea since they already are under Uefa's FFP regulations. What they actually want is that a smaller club cant get a sugar daddy and become the new City (i.e. keep the status quo). It's a non-story to be honest as this was already known.

    The Mail is pushing it quite hard, I havent seen the paper today but it's probably splashed across the backpages. They even brought Martin Samuel out in full force. To think, I use to like his writing, it seems the Daily Mail xenophobia and little englander mentality is rubbing off. Anyway, its interesting enough read to see the arguments against the letter.

    So I'm not sure if its true, but soccernet claims that Pep has decided to go to Bayern Munich... I'm saying its not true, because the page with the story isn't loading so. However if it is true, what are your thoughts?

    Re: The Football/Soccer Thread v2

    My reaction to the news:


    I was just sooo damn hyper all day long...

    Back in late May when the first rumors popped up that linked us to Guardiola, Pep was more of a dream, an unachievable goal if you want. Kind of like a stunningly beautiful girl who's a class above you... it's okay to dream but don't get your hopes up too high. (Plus, it was kinda soothing to escape into dreams when the wounds from UCL's final were still fresh and wide open...)

    But then these past few weeks the tides slowly but surely changed in our favor and I (and many other Munich supporters) grew more and more confident that we might in fact pull this huge coup! - There were too many little facts and details that just added up. One aspect that got me especially psyched in this context were the betting odds from the bookies! Virtually every other place saw us clearly in the lead. (The Guardian covered that a little over a week ago or so.)
    Now when Sky Italia and CNN's Gianluca Di Marzio poked their noses into this, shit eventually hit the fan and everything went just so fast... this weekend I was ~70% sure Guardiola would end up here, yesterday and the day before it shifted towards 99%. (Karl-Heinz Rummenigge gave one of his infamous interviews where he did not explicitly confirm the rumors but every Bayern fan knew exactly what was going on. Gosh, I love Kalle's rhetorical "clumsiness"... )

    And today we finally have the confirmation.

    A great day for the club. In fact, a great day for German football! The sheer idea that a Bundesliga club could manage to attract someone like Guardiola - especially with the notable, illustrate and financially-potent competition around - was unthinkable a few years back... but we did it. God, I'm happy.

    It seems, there still are things that value more than 22 millions a year...

    --

    Some additional info on Pep's situation here:
    * He signed a contract for three years and will start in July 2013!

    * While Heynckes' contract expires this year it appears he will stay at the club, acting in some sort of advisory/consultatory function. (Maybe in order to help Pep in the beginning. After all, Don Jupp knows the club and should be able to communicate any important details in Spanish due to his longterm residence and work history there.)

    * The contract had in fact already been signed before Christmas! It way publicly confirmed now in order to put an end to all the fuss. (Confirmed by Orobitg, Guardiola's agent, on Twitter)

    * Of course, Bayern could not make the best offer financially. Pep eventually chose them due to the club's structure and the player material at hand. (Also according to Orobitg)

    It's better overall that Pep went to Bayern than City. You have to ask what defines success. Is merely winning the league several times enough or does he need to bring home at least one CL title in order for his managerial time at Bayern to be considered a success? Bayern's been on the cusp of that CL title lately, losing two Finals in three years.

    One of the best teams in Spain, from San Sebastián. It's one of the 9 teams in Spain that never played in 3rd Division and the team with the biggest unbeaten streak in Spain (38 matches, 32 in a single Season, record too).

    The surprising thing about the match wasn't that Barca conceded, because they've shipped goals a fair amount this season, but that Messi and Pedro gave them a 2-0 lead, only for them to surrender it. It didn't help matters that Pique picked up a second yellow when it was 2-1.

    A quick reminder that the African Cup of Nations is on. Here's a definite guide to the tournament.
