      I will miss Mancini’s press conferences, as his english improved they became more and more enjoyable to watch, would have been fun to see Mancini vs Mourinho next yr as well.

    As much as I loved Mancini the more time that passed and the more he criticized his players in public, we knew he had to go. Hopefully Pellegrini will the most, I heard his man managment skills are there.

      One look at the tactical nous of one Pellegrini and you’ll be singing his praises, guaranteed. Mancini’s dour no-winger brick wall schematics will be forgotten in short order.
