Mancini Must Impress Or Suffer The Consequences

Mancini Must Impress Or Suffer The Consequences



Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini must have one, if not the most stressful job in the English Premier League.

With more money at his disposal than any other manager in the history of British football the first few months of the new campaign are going to be crucial.

Club Chairman, Khaldoon Al Mubarak and Chief Executive, Garry Cook have utter and total confidence in the 45-year-old Italian, however, a slow or poor start to the season will see Bobby Manc suffer pressure like never before.

Splashing the cash is fine and dandy, and to be perfectly honest, easy, but creating a team spirit and a winning mentality is another.

First few fixtures

14 August - Tottenham Hotspur - away
23 August - Liverpool - home
29 August - Sunderland - away
11 September - Blackburn Rovers - home
18 September - Wigan Athletic - away
25 September - Chelsea - home

Pressure, what pressure?

I for one wish Roberto every success, nevertheless, Mancini must impress or suffer the consequences.

I see 4 wins minimum from that group of fixtures. Liverpool are not what they used to be, and I'm not sure why everyone seems to think that they will dominate this season. They are selling players left and right, and their best midfielder continues to get older. Spurs away will probably be the most difficult, followed by Chelsea at home. I can 16 points from that run, though, which isn't bad to start the season with.

And by 16 points, I meant to say 14 points (4 W 2 D).

I would be dancing around our village naked if we can get 14 points from the above fixtures.

Would be delighted with: 1pt vs. Spurs (always tough away), 3pts vs. Dippers, 3pts vs. Sunderland (but this could be the unexpectedly difficult one), 3pts vs. Blackburn, 3pts vs. Wigan, and 1pt vs. Chelsea. A total of 14pts. I doubt it will be so easy, with our team needing time to gel, but you never know. We started last season in amazing form but then hit a roadblock.

Agree with you PBM, think the Tottenham gane will be the hardest...We stand a good chance of beating both Chelsea and Liverpool at home though...

The problem with the Spurs game is that it is coming off of mid-week International Friendlies, so how many of our players will either tired from that game or be jet-lagged from going back to South America or all across Europe? Same can be said for Spurs, so I am going to hold off any prediction on that game until after the round of matches that Wednesday. Hopefully no one gets hurt, because City-Spurs at WHL is one heck of a way to start off a season if everyone is fit.

With the amount of money Mancini has spent instant results will be expected and if those results aren't delivered, well lets just say Mancini knows where the exit is.

Can someone please tell Wswilly to stop going on to other sites saying 'your teams got no money haha' like a little school boy he needs to grow up, he shouldnt be bragging as city havnt done anything with the players they have brought yet, they failed last season and we will see what happens this season. Nothing against the rest of you, just no need to act like a 3 year old, you have money so what, football is a sport for everyone to enjoy money shouldnt be an issue, id be happy to be a sherewsbury or bury fan tbh, if you love the game you wouldnt care about the money just your team and watching football.

I can see us losing to spurs and maybe drawing at home with liverpool. I expect us to kick on from then and have a wonderful season, proving all the jealous haters wrong :)
