Madness without Method: How Mancini has to take the blame for the Citizens' debacle this season

In what is yet another ill-timed outburst amidst a long chain of baffling statements, Roberto Mancini proves that he is nowhere near Sir Alex, when it comes to mind games...

While it is absolutely normal that with the big Manchester derby almost here, there will be frankly incredulous statements on both sides of the divide exhorting how the table might mean nothing and it is the performance of the day that matters.

The story is too old to be commented.
