Admitting defeat?

Sir Alex Ferguson is the master of "mind games" but is Man City manager Roberto Mancini trying it on or does he genuinely think United's rivals can't sign Robin van Persie.

Mancini is quoted in the Italian media as saying: 'Van Persie? No, I don't think he will come here.'

Growing reports are saying that RvP, also heavily linked with Juventus, prefers a move to Old Trafford but can a deal be struck with Arsenal to sign the Dutch international superstar?

If Fergie is the master of mind games, why did Mancini own him at them, all of last season?

Wouldn't say he owned him. Fair play to Mancini though he held his own. Can't see a Keegan style melt down anytime soon. Mores the pity:-). Do believe RVP will go elsewhere though would love to see him and Rooney link up. But if it doesn't happen its not like we're short on strikers

Own him? Mancini won the war yeah but there was times when Fergie had one the mind game battles. Don't want RVP, he's a great payer but not what we need and he will reflect another luxury buy like Berbatov. Not what we need nor does he really fit our system.

Can't be that much of a myth he managed to drive Rafa (fact) Benitez and Wenger mad

He drove them mad, did he? Last time I looked both were perfectly sane. What about Mourinho, how did his mastery get on with him? Or Ancellotti? Or Mancini? Guardiola? What about Fergie going bananas on the Etihad sideline? Was that his mastery at work again?

Didn't say his mind games had worked on Mancini did I though bluedub. As for Mourinho and Ancellotti Fergie seems to get on quite well with them. Guardiola isn't even in the same country Man U and Barca meet Twice a season at most so why would he even try that often. But I do remember a point where Wenger refused to even talk about "that man" when Fergie had riled him that badly and Rafa lost it in a press conference with a sheet of paper full of conspiracy theorys. Fergie loosing it on the touchline happens everywhere he believes decisions are going against his side all managers do it even Mancini

I never suggested that you did say they worked on Mancini MM. I'm just wondering why they didn't considering he's the master of them.

Some people can just take the pressure better than others. Mancini seems quite laid back unless you refuse to warm up;-). Plus he's only had two and bit seasons of the fun they'll be more to come Mancini probably won't crack but it gives us all something to laugh and complain about in equal measure. Long may the mind games continue.
