Mancini is to blame (his words)

Fashion guru Roberto Mancini admitted that he really doesn't know what he is doing.

The BBC says:

Manager Roberto Mancini took the blame for Manchester City's crushing 3-0 Premier League defeat at Liverpool.
An Andy Carroll double blew City away to leave them clinging to the Champions League fourth spot, three points above Tottenham, who have a game in hand.
"We didn't play for the first 20 minutes when Liverpool played well but tonight I made a mistake. It was my fault. We can do better," Mancini said.
If Mancini wasn't so devilishly handsome I think more may have been said of how he has managed to spend more money than I knew existed, yet still not win anything.  It's not really his fault when players just don't give a shit because they are going to be paid £200,000 a week even though they were on the bench at Barcelona anyway, and being conned into spending £18 million on Gareth Barry and Joleon Lescott by greedy agents.  It probably also wasn't the greatest of ideas for the owner to announce he doesn't care how much players cost because he will buy them anyway.  That's like going into a shop, looking at a mars bar and saying "shop keep, today is your lucky day for I will spend whatever it costs to own that mars bar, for my funds are limitless" and then not minding that it costs you £23 million and then it starts throwing darts at youth players when its bored.  And it's not even that good a chocolate bar.
