After an absolutely amazing run (this past week not withstanding), Barcelona’s coach, Pep Guardiola is stepping down at the end of the year.  He will be replaced by long time assistant, Tito Vilanova.  “Despite developing one of the greatest teams world soccer has seen, Guardiola said the demands of the job had taken their toll. He said he decided in December to step down, but didn’t want to distract the team.”  While having the world’s greatest player (Lionel Messi) helped, the style with which they played was truly something beautiful to behold.
