Boxing Day 2009

For several years Boxing Day has always been the day that I do as little as possible, usually eating too much and watching too much TV. Today has been no exception.

This afternoon I headed off to Eastlands with some trepidation (and care, since the roads and pavements remain pretty treacherous in parts) for Mancini’s first game in charge of City. On paper this should have been an easy win for City, but it was set up perfectly for a disastrous start.

No doubt all the papers will be very disappointed that City ended up worthy winners 2-0. No doubt the speculation will surround the decision to leave Craig Bellamy on the bench and to start with Robinho, who had little impact for 70 minutes before being replaced by Bellamy. Hopefully Mancini was saving Bellamy for the away game on Monday night against Wolves, where Robinho will be a luxury we can’t afford.
