    Mancini and Sarri insulting each other on the touchline yesterday, displaying the class and values of their respective clubs!

      I’ve never been a fan of Mancini, yet that was more due to the mechanical football he deployed, as a manager. Which he has repeated with Inter, to great success. Yet he has always seemed classy, dignified, proper. Certainly lacking any semblance of joy, yet decent.

      If the comments quoted are accurate, Sarri is painted as a goon.

      Either way it is good for us to have the manager of our main rivals for the title in the spotlight for the wrong reasons.

        I never liked Mancini either, not as manager and not as a person. I dont rate him classy either, i havent seen anything from him that makes me do that. Rows with players, rantings at referees, rows with other managers.

        Sarri didnt even try to deny the accusations so he apparently is a goon.

        Sarri risks a lengthy ban and that might be good news for the Scudetto race

          Indeed, perhaps I over extended myself when I added ‘classy’ for he has the ego of a baron, yet I remain conclusive that he expresses himself in a professional manner on the whole.

          And I agree…it is a little odd for Sarri to have seemingly accepted the charge. Which I cannot say is to his credit, more stupid. Especially if – as it appears – the linesman nearby did not add their own weight to the charge.

          Is there truly any chance Sarri could receive a ban though? We are talking of a sporting body whose leader has openly remarked of banana eaters, whilst adding derogatory comments aimed towards homosexuals and jews. Had he been more specific and made such comments towards zionists, I could smile, but alas, he likely knows not the difference.

            Agreed there, he does talk and speech in a decent way. I dont know whats up with Sarri, until now I have only read positive things about him.

            Yes it strikes me too as a surprise that he could face a ban for this, but it is reported that he could be banned for up to 2 months. (Football-italia)

            Seems too much in my eyes, dont know what exactly was said though.

            Now there is talk of just a 2game ban, in Coppa italia only. Which has zero effect in this campaign of course

    For the good of our title chances I had hoped Napoli would win their Coppa game against Inter but oh well, they wont keep up this rhythm for the rest of the season.

    And Napoli losing is also nice.
