Just 24 hours after appointing Roberto Mancini as manager, Manchester city have announced they have sacked him following today's performance.
Although City weren't scheduled to play their next game until next week, sources close to the city bosses have said they are very upset that Chelsea gained a point today,uncontested by Roberto Mancini's side.
"We sat down with Roberto over a skinny cap latte and stated that he must not lose any ground on the leaders. After today it's one nil as far as league points go and that's clearly not in line with our targets for the rest of the season. He has obviously failed miserably. Roberto's name strap has been removed from the office doors already."
Which would indicate why a large shipment of velcro straps was delivered to the city stadium last Thursday.
In further city news, Carlos Tevez has bought a life size version of the now famous "welcome to Manchester" poster featuring himself in sky blue. The A3 poster is said to have cost the striker somewhere in the region of 10p.
