    Boom - fwiw I love the hire. Has pedigree and managing experience, and was one of Pep’s chief lieutenants.

    How do you not have his work permit done yet? This has been in the works for like 8 weeks.

    So what if he doesn’t get a work permit in the next 13 days? Kitman is coaching then?

    Lol. I love how the national guys had these stories written since Saturday and our "reporters" were unprepared for this announcement.

    Yes. But we've turned around work permits for players in quicker time. I agree. It's partially out of our hands. But get that shit figured out. Or don't name the manager yet.

    Seems like a great pick, how hard it will be for him to put a staff together assuming he won't bring others from Peps team?

    Probably as good an option as could be hoped for. This question is my only latent, and probably short term, concern:

    As a Barca and Guardiola fan this makes me happy. It's still gonna be rough coming in with a whole new coaching staff in the middle of the season and getting used to MLS is a challenge. Hopefully he can hit the ground running, I'm excited to see what he brings to the team.

    I mean realistically he's already here right and will lead in training at the next session regardless if permit is approved right? He just isn't getting paid til then.

    I’m thrilled with this appointment. Really happy. Tons of experience coaching alongside arguably the best coach in the world for some of the top clubs. Coming in wth more experience than PV and will be looking to prove a point. Love this.

    I imagine he has a very extensive, well-seeded network of peers. I expect his style of management to be more egalitarian than hierarchical.
