City Sack Mancini Because Yeah, That’s the Problem

This has been coming for some time now, but Roberto Mancini was just officially sacked by the club’s owners because apparently winning the title for the first time in 40+ years just ain’t good enough.  I am no fan of the man, but c’mon.  The most successful manager in the last few decades of the club and you’re not satisfied?

This year was a bit of a disappointment for the blue side of Manchester and it all came to a head on Sunday when City were shocked at Wembley in the FA Cup final.  But they’ll most likely finish second in the Premier League and head back to the Champions League, they reached the FA Cup final, and they’ve got a buttload of money to beef up their squad even more.  You think changing the manager is the key to success here?  I heard having some stability in that role can lead to success.

You can buy all the players you want but not developing your youth and having continued stability in a manager and his staff and you’ll continue to be inconsistent and unsatisfied. Man City are case and point.  Here’s to another 40 years of mediocrity.
