Hypocrite!

Hypocrite!

Tuning in to watch our great rivals last night, but only because the alternative was the dirge they call soap opera, I had to have a quick chuckle to myself.

There he was, stood on the touchline, Italian charm personified, strutting around the technical box, dreaming of a first Premier League title, aided by Fat Platt, going ballistic at the referee.

Apparently, Roberto Mancini wasn`t too pleased when the referee, Martin Atkinson, failed to send off Maynor Figueroa when he deliberately handled a cross that was meant for Sergio Aguero.

Such was his angst he took to waving an imaginary red card, the very action he took Wayne Rooney to task on when Vincent Kompany tried to cut Nani in half and Wayne, allegedly, waved a red card in the direction of Chris Foy.

That Sunday, after the game, Mancini berated Rooney but it seems there`s one rule for some and another rule for others.

No wonder Wayne tweeted afterwards,

"Was Mancini asking for a red card?"

The word hypocrite comes to mind!

taggart has already voiced his opinion on the matter - are you suggesting you disagree with your own manager then?

Mancini said that Rooney got Kompany sent off, he never condemned the action, he simply stated the fact therefore there is nothing hypocritical in Mancini's behaviour.

taggart defended pubehead for waving a red card. Ipso facto, taggart agrees with mancini's assesment of the situation. I'm surprised at all you reds - contradicting your manager seems to have become rather commonplace these days. And NW - never agreed with you, just stated that I couldn't find any footage of what I witnessed at the game.

RedBoy, do you understand the meaning of the word hypocrite? Are you going to defend what you write or do your usual of spouting ***** and not backing it up with facts?
