    Listening to people like Xavi explaining the game is why Pep hates the media circus & allows games to be forgotten & spend the week talking about milk & music.
    I love listening to players like this talk about football & it improves every bodies game intelligence.
    Pricks like Custis tell us we want scandal we'll he can fck off, if I wanted weekly soap operas I'd watch Coronation Street.

    We should get this guy into the CFG family asap. Obviously he'd prefer to manage Barca some day but in the meantime...

    I'd take Xavi's way over "the United way" any day of the week.

    The cnuts at ragcafe do have a valid point. There is no single way of playing football. Even Pep realizes this and you can tell by the way he adapted to Bundesliga and now in the EPL.

    I posted it originally for the interview ,rather than the reactions as there weren't any when I first looked.
    Quite a few of the replies are interested and get it but there are some real sour grapes there as well. Pep and Xavi have certainly beaten them a few times over the years.

    To be fair, it's not just that, but the fact that peak Barcelona beat them twice in CL finals as well. :)

    Regarding the football and the way of playing under Pep's coaching.
    The football he is demanding is very fluid and requires accurate quick passing coupled with the ability to switch play from one side of the field to the other in an instant.
    Defence becomes attack, the goalkeeper is a fourth or even fifth defender and we defend from the front.
    So fluid is the style of football that it is almost a firelike plasma.
    I suggest that we give our stadium the nickname 'The Volcano'.
    Appropriate in so many ways, simmering and bubbling away for years, slowly building pressure and now exploding with a magnificence that no one in the football world can ignore.
    Etihad = The Volcano?

    I love the comment "Football is a sport, it isn't a tactic"
