Re: Footie What did I say about Balotelli....at least Mancini\'s finally seen the light when it\'s too late and the campaign\'s gone down the toilet to realise he has to be kicked out of the club. Disgraceful performance against Arsenal, and amazingly the FA won\'t be taking action over the Song tackle?! He almost broke Song\'s bloody leg. Christ almighty. United deserve the title, City have choked when it mattered. I\'d say the turning point was 10 minutes into that 3rd round FA Cup tie. City all over Man U, then Kompany slides in on a wet pitch. Red card. Bedlam. Beaten 3-2. Sense of injustice. Loss of key player. That\'s where the meltdown started. City are too fragile to rise above something like that at the moment. It\'s only the second season as a team for most of these players. Scholes coming back also seems to have made a huge difference. United\'s midfield was a shambles until the New Year. Should they sack Mancini? Hard to say. As a fan, I quite like him, although I\'d question his loyalty in Balotelli and his backing down in the Tevez saga. Can\'t really see who else could do a better job in the circumstances; I\'d rather see what he can do after a summer of jettisoning the troublemakers and bringing in some leaders of men. We were 3rd, now (probably!) 2nd (Arsenal could nick it, mind) and next season..who knows. We\'re in the CL, too. Just please, get rid of Balotelli and Tevez. Whatever the cost.
