Do you expect a manager to admit his team isn't good enough after a narrow defeat on the first day of the season? 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.
I see where you're coming from and I agree but to me, just don't say anything. For example, the Carrick comment (which as I said I can understand why he was poor as he was in a completely different role) is just going to annoy fans when you say he played well when in fact he didn't. Sure, Carrick tried but he didn't have a 'good' game. Just say he worked hard, not that he had a good game as it just makes you look stupid. Like I said, I'm not one of those stupid fans already calling for Ferguson's head and I don't want to see the Manager say negative things to the media about their players but don't overpraise them for a below par performance.

Still, I agree with your comments. Meh, I've been tired all day so maybe the way it was written (read his comments on the United website) is what annoyed me most.

Rubbish. Spending lots of money actually doesn't always guarantee success, and you do need the right man at the helm to steer to club properly, which is something Mancini has done very well. Just look at PSG currently, or the Galacticos in the past. Money doesn't guarantee success. I know the English media like to criticise foreign managers whenever they can, and they were all ready to hang, draw and quarter Mancini if City blew the league on the last day. But I think what's most telling is what City fans think of Mancini, and they are pretty much 100% behind him, so that's shows me he's doing a very good job.

Luckily for Arsenal fans Wilshire is injured most of the time or he would have been sold as well.

Haha, the Wilshere / VanPersie Arsenal shirt reminds me of when I saw a lad about 5 years ago with "Tores" written in marker pen in the back of his Liverpool shirt. He also had an El Nino tattoo on his neck. Poor bloke.

Mancini needs to prove himself in Europe. He has a poor record there.

He always does a good job domestically but in CL he does horrible. Which is why I don't think City will reach far in CL this season

Re: 2012-13 English Premier League Thread

Looking forward to the match tonight. Really hope Ramires starts both for the fact that I think he is brilliant and that he is in my fantasy football starting XI.
