A manager will always boost his player's confidence, barring a complete and utter disaster. Losing 1-0 away to Everton is hardly the end of the world and a reason to destroy morale via the media.

If a manager came out and slagged off his players (individual or collective) every time they were below par then he wouldn't be in a job for long. It's called man management. For example, Glenn Roeder often bad mouthed players while he was at Norwich, the result of which was a demotivated team. There's a place to give criticism (the changing room) and that's not in the press, except for rare occasions.

As for praising Carrick despite playing poorly, what's Ferguson supposed to do, tear apart a player who was happy to play out of position? That would really motivate Carrick in the future.

Joel, you should have just edited the quote by replacing the words Glenn Roeder with the letters AVB. None the less, that was fucking classic!

Mancini openly criticizes his players...



































Then goes on to win the league.

Gentlemen, if you lose today you will continue to be the best in the world but if you win today you will be eternal.

On goal difference, after spending a fortune. Citeh should have won the league easily last season. They won it in spite of Mancini, not because of him.

Start as you mean to go on.

Actually why didn't the MIGHTY Vidic pick up Fellaini at the corner? Was he worried that he couldn't handle him?

Re: 2012-13 English Premier League Thread

Wins a win though.

United could have won it just as easily towards the end of the season with their lead. You have to give Mancini credit for making a comeback after being 8 (?) points behind with only a few weeks to go.

Re: 2012-13 English Premier League Thread

No, not really when you compare resources. It's easy for Mancini to slag off one of his players and piss them off because he always has a ready made replacement, sometimes two. I mean, he actually had the luxury of fucking off Tevez and having the players to cope without him easily for ages.

The fact that United had to bring a player out of retirement to compete shows how big the gap is/was between the two clubs in terms of finance and squad depth. United had a keeper who was suffering a nightmare for the first few months, a disorganised defence that was plauged with injuries, a midfield that was often non existent and a striker who didn't want to be there for a while. When you add in the fact that Chelsea were garbage under AVB while Arsenal haven't been taken seriously as a title contender for some time then you realise that it should have been a walk in the park for a Citeh squad that is by far the strongest in premier league history.

I will give credit to Mancini and say that he did an excellent job of taking the pressure off of his players in the final few weeks, saying they'd lost the title and putting pressure on United, but Citeh should have had the league wrapped up a long time before that. It was hardly genius, just a case of Mancini cleaning up his own mess.
