Seriously, many thought Mancini was crazy for signing so many strikers and many of those signings are written off, including Tevez. However, now, he seems to have got it right with his firepower even though it was an expensive trial and error. Mancini came from a more tactical Seria A background by he may have realised that English Football requires other factors to win. And, since English football is more "open", FIREPOWER could be the answer. Surely, he would have analyzed the more attacking Arsenal and Manure.
Mourinho and Rafa are masters of the counter attack game. It's a surprise both did considerably well in English Football even though they applied the safety/defensive approach. The former earned more 3 points due to the quality of players afforded to him by Roman Abramovich while the latter has less luck due to the lack of transfer funds.
The debate on whether "all out attack or counter attack" is effective may be forever.
One thing for sure... One gets 3 points for a win in Football! Imo, "two wins and a loss" is definitely better than "one win, a draw and a loss" or "three draws".:nowink:
