    When is the Pressure On Roberto Mancini?

    Posted from here

    Roberto Mancini, our new manager, has yet to deliver a win. Infact, we only have 1 point from 9 under him. I think most of the complaints I’ve seen against him so far, in fairness, come from before he was appointed, rather than people who have already flippantly changed their minds after just a few weeks of the RM-2 revolution (yes, I coined that phrase, I’m sticking to it).

    The first issue to address – is this a fair question to even pose? I don’t want to get into a discussion of Roberto Mancini as a tactician – I’ve already covered this in a previous article (see the bottom of the page) – and those who were against Roberto Mancini before his appointment are understandably still against him.

    Typically our manager appointments have come with spells of (albeit brief) success. Look at Stramaccioni at the start of his first full season. Look at Ranieri taking over for Gasperini. Look at Leonardo, even Benitez (without cheating) did well at first?

    We have not been fortunate enough to have the same start under Roberto Mancini. A draw with Milan, a loss to Roma (whilst the result was fair, it would have been nice to see more passion in the game itself – but then, as a counter argument, what can we expect for only a few day’s training?), and perhaps a loss against Udinese that some people justifiably think was poor. Udinese have an extremely poor away record this season, and it should well have been a case where Inter picked up some points.

    But when you put it like that – a single unexpected loss – is it really fair to start to criticise Roberto Mancini, and if not, when would it be? The annoying thing about this season is that we had a few of our easier games already – games against Torino, recently promoted Palermo, obviously Parma, Cagliari, and Verona all spring to mind – leaving Roberto Mancini Chievo, Lazio, Juventus, Genoa and Empoli for the tail to mid-Jan (currently 16th, 6th, 1st, 3rd and 13th respectively). That being said, I would really hope to pick up 9 points of the 15 on offer there – which would require a big result against Lazio, Juventus or Genoa – which might be beyond our scope.

    Let’s also not forget the transition from 3 at the back to the more traditional 4 at the back. We still need to find our best centre-back pairing, and it will be very interesting to see what happens in January (and indeed if we back Roberto Mancini’s plans with money, or at least new players).

    We should be careful about being too critical on a manager who has clearly inherited a very bad situation, but at the same time, we do also need to realise this with the fact that we are in a competitive environment and ultimately there are no excuses for failure. It will be interesting to see how much patience Inter fans have for Roberto Mancini, especially when we consider the great things he did at Inter last time he was here, and whether that buys him any favour or not.

    We shouldnt forget that Mancinis success came with/after Caliopoli. The league wasnt hard and we had great players.
    Internationally he kept failing. (To this day)

    I just want to know what he's so scared to use his substitution bench.

    Anyway, he needs more time.

    There is no question of 'when' the pressure will be on Mancini. Fact is, the pressure is already on Mancini. It started when he agreed to the job.

    - This is the squad you have to work with.
    - Don't ask for €25m, €50m, €75m in transfer funds, cos we aren't Man U, Barca, RM etc. you won't get it.

    Meh.

    I think he at least deserves a transfer window before we can call it. What I want to see is us stick with a 4-3-3/4-2-3-1 even if we sign another coach. Stop signing coaches that play different formations one after another.

    mancini deserves AT LEAST 1.5 years, because thats what shithead mazzarri got, and mancio has a proven track record. lets see what he does with the next 2 xfer windows and how this team looks afterward. if we look remotely competent and play a fluid, more modern game, then im all for keeping mancini for however long it takes.

    Every manager deserves at least a transfer window (and budget)!

    If we have learned anything from FM, it is this.
