Roberto Mancini is determined to go down in history as the man who ended Manchester City's 35-year trophy drought. Last year Mancini famously declared his intention to rip down the taunting clock that hangs from the Stretford End at Old Trafford, ticking round each season that ends without silverware on the blue half of Manchester.
Money may help Roberto Mancini win a trophy, but money will not make Manchester City as famous as Manchester United. Only footballing history, constant success, and longevity will achieve the impossible goal. Sir Matt Busby and Sir Alex Ferguson worked long and hard developing their great football teams, sometimes under immense pressure on and off the playing field. That is why Manchester United and the Stretty End is world famous. So, that clock hanging from the Stretford End will continue to tick for many years to come!
