Fight alert! Cool guy Mancini finally flips out!

Heeey, chillax guys!

Mancini and Moyes

The big problem that cool people face is that once they’ve made themselves a reputation for being cool, they have to maintain it. Take it from The Spoiler, that’s not a 24/7 job, it’s 25/8.

And unfortunately, history dictates that eventually they will crack – look at bonkers Britney Spears, she was once cool. Or the former coolster, Tiger Woods – he now just wanders the planet occasionally stopping to tearfully apologise to strangers for his dirty sex antics with porno stars. Or look at Roberto Mancini – yes, he’s finally gone berserk.

After months of sitting in the dugout with a scarf around his neck like a man on his way to drink martinis with Elle Macpherson, the pressure of maintaining his suave image finally caught up with Mancini during last night’s home defeat to Everton.

As reported in today’s Daily Mail, the Man City boss totally lost it, and ATTACKED David Moyes on the touchline to retrieve the ball with a few minutes left on the clock. Both men were sent packing, with City defeated, and Mancini’s unflappable facade lying in rubble. He said this:

“If I made a mistake then I’m sorry. I have spoken with him.”

“I wanted to get the ball because we had another five minutes.”

A shame-faced moment indeed, made all the worse by David Moye’s surprisingly cool response.

“There’s no problem. He was just showing his passion for his team.”

“I will be going to his office now for a glass of wine. I hope he is there.”

Can Mancini get his cool back? Let us know with a comment.

    Was he there, or did Moyes just go in and drink some of his wine?

    Moyes is Scottish, I wouldn’t be surprised of he went in there with a case of Skol, deep fried mars bars, and pissed on his desk.

    Moyes was just trying to get a sub on, and had already seen the ref ignore a number of opportunities to make the change.

    No big deal though – Mancini’s still cool as far as I’m concerned.
