Ten Games In Charge - Let The Debate Begin

Ten Games In Charge - Let The Debate Begin

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has been in charge for ten games but with the Hull defeat at the weekend, is the honeymoon period over?

I for one support Mancini 100% but that means diddly-squat especially when ADUG demand success, and now.

The Italian was appointed City manager on 19th December 2009 following the controversial sacking of Mark Hughes and since then the side has played 10, won 7 and lost 3.

Games in-charge

26 December 2009 - Stoke City (h) won 2-0
28 December 2009 - Wolves (a) won 3-0
02 January 2010 - Middlesbrough (a) won 1-0
11 January 2010 - Blackburn (h) won 4-1
16 January 2010 - Everton (a) lost 2-0
19 January 2010 - Manchester United (h) Carling Cup - won 2-1
24 January 2010 - Scunthorpe (a) FA Cup - won 4-2
27 January 2010 - Manchester United (a) Carling Cup - lost 3-1
31 January 2010 - Portsmouth (h) won 2-0
06 February 2010 - Hull City (a) lost 2-1

Forthcoming fixtures

09 February 2010 - Bolton Wanderers (h)
13 February 2010 - Stoke City (h) FA Cup
16 February 2010 - Stoke City (a)
21 February 2010 - Liverpool (h)
27 February 2010 - Chelsea (a)
06 March 2010 - Tottenham (h)

Can MCFC creep into the top 4 and stay there?

Can City finish the season in a European spot?

Is Mancini the man to bring success?

Let the debate begin.

As was the case with Hughes, if Mancini cannot get City beating journey men teams then he too will be history

The media are quick to point out that mancini lost two games, like the beloved mark hughes. If real facts and statistics were reported, they would see roberto has gained more points than hughes did at any stage of the season, given the same amount of games. If hughes never drew so many games, he would still be boss. Its better to win 2 games and loose one, than draw all three. Ask mark hughes.
