Strongly rumoured that Roberto Mancini will be sacked by Manchester City this week, 12 months on from winning the title. Harsh if true!

Will preface this by saying: will be sad to see Mancini go, like the guy, respect him, enjoyed his company. However . . . .

Mancini not being sacked for finishing second. He’s going due to performances this season and the fact he’s not right man to take us forward

Man City have sacked Mancini?Stupid move by greedy, spendy owners methinks. And I’ll miss those powder-blue scarves. Nice for Moyes tho.

If you discount Ferguson and Moyes, Roberto Mancini is currently the ninth longest serving manager in the four English divisions.

Mancini was charged with changing a mid table mindset into a league winning one whilst competing with the greatest manager ever

Fergie’s last act at United is to see of yet another noisy neighbour. Mancini will be replaced by Pellegrini this week.
