‘Roberto Mancini will be the next Pompey manager’, not my vote, yours – although these findings from Et_tu_Pompeii’s poll are thoughts that I kind of want to agree with but do not necessarily agree with to be honest…

Mancini have proven beyond a doubt what he can do in Italy, he has won Serie A titles and competed at the very highest level – one of my concerns is that apart from a brief loan spell with Leicester at the end of his playing career he has no experience of the English game.

That said if you are a quality manager you will be able to manage anywhere, right?

The other concern is that I am not convinced Mancini is actually the man we are going for and still feel that Vahid Halilhodzic is very much in the frame – maybe not as much as it seemed, but I am led to believe that a deal was in place, or just about in place for him? Although that information could prove wrong, and to be honest I hope it does I must admit.

If we got Mancini I would not be disappointed, we will find out soon enough either way…
