Fascinating article here by Phil Ball about the rise of the “guru” manager in Spain, perhaps because Spain has been more open to foreign influences. Well worth a read.

Robinho apparently wants to join Barcelona sometime in the near-ish future despite a good run of form with Manchester City. Of course, he is prone to disappearing for distressingly long periods of time and Los culés just signed a fella by the name of Zlatan Ibrahimović for about a bazillion euros. But let’s not let that get in the way of the fun.

The ultra-fascinating Paul Pogba saga continues. Now David Gill is saying that he never intimidated Le Havre and that they’re free to take whatever action they want. Everyone needs to take a step back and get the whole thing sorted out, sharpish.

Stateside, David Beckham’s quest to be chosen for England’s 2010 team in South Africa continues, with a hint at a Premiership return. I think that’s just hyperbole and he’s going back to AC Milan. But I’ve been wrong many, many times before.
