'If It's Football, It's Vital'

On a Hiding to Nothing!

I`d guess I`m not alone when it comes to inferring that one of the highlights of last night was when Sir Alex Ferguson and Roberto Mancini almost went toe-to-toe.

With the pressure getting to them it seemed the two esteemed gentlemen were about to engage in a touch of the Queensbury Rules before being pulled apart by their respective background teams.

Afterwards, as you might guess, both had differing views on the fracas and the reasons behind it with Sir Alex remarking about Mancini,

"He was badgering the referee all the time. The minute I got out there, he was up again."

"He was complaining about the referees the other week - he can`t be complaining tonight that`s for sure."


Whilst Mancini responded,

"Him no? He doesn`t talk to the referee to try to get decisions never."

Thankfully, calm was restored and the pair did shake hands after the final whistle, But, if a fight had of broken out then Sir Alex would have been right up against it as all followers of the art of pugilism know you rarely get the verdict against an Italian in his own backyard unless you knock him out!

FERGIE OUT
Nobby Allcock
Fergie cracked up, had a go at Mancini and Mancini gave as good as he got. Fergie then visibly withered, went back to his seat and didn't surface agin during the match, he was a broken man...

1-0 to Mancini. Taggart just made himself look a proper Richard Head in front of a global audience.

Oh come on Fergie that was pathetic and you were simply being a sore loser. Even if Mancini was moaning about the ref it's nothing you haven't done before. How many opposition managers reacted the same way when you've done it?

Mancini won't back down. Fergie hasn't a clue how to beat City now without the aid of the twelfth column. I think his assistant is a tactically inept yes man whereas Platt and Kidd. How Fergie must wish he still had Kiddo. Also what makes one think that Guardiola would want to work for a mid-table team. Fergie out, handfuls of fresh air as you slide down the table. Respect what this man has done for your Club. You were relegation fodder when he came along.

Fergie still the man for us - Pep will not come to EPL - not for another year or two yet....
niteworlok
fergie may stay at OT, BUT for how long? he is what 70 now? and you dont make that same decisions now as you did when you were in your 30-40s..... is it time for him to retire gracefully, at the top and not with a team in decline like Cloughie did? cos what he has won may never be matched again, but you never know...
