Money alone can't buy the title (Inter have proved this for many years), but
Man City also have the coach and quality players to win the title.

Just like Chelsea in the past.

How do you rate Mancini as a coach?

They're building a right proper team though.

The only problem will be the "chemistry" and the "will they be happy
sitting on the bench" deal.

But Chelsea somehow made it work....

I rate him well as a coach, even though sometimes he can be stubborn and not
see outside the square. Ancelotti can be the same too.

Mancini did well at Inter and won a few titles, so I think he has proved
himself.

Yeah, but I think Mancini can deal with those situations and I think he's
great at gelling the team. He's also not afraid of putting players in their
place when he needs to.

With great coaches you can make it work.

I think that the point is that if you have the most money you can buy
the better players and attract the better manager.

So, you just mean that money spent shrewdly can still buy the title.

This is one way to win the title. Jam pack your squad with the most
expensive players on the market and attract a money hungry coach to
manage the team. i.e. "buying" the title.

The other way is to cultivate your own youth squads, turn the gooed
players you have into better players and get them to play as a team.
Have the team managed by a coach that is passionate about the club (not
money) and passionate about football.

Buying the title as descibed above should be abhorred and discouraged.

Bad for players: no investment in training facilities. no investment in
developing players, just buy a new player when performances drop off.

Bad for clubs: no long term planning, when the money dries up and the
talent goes elsewhere the club is left with a HUGE debt and no talent.

Bad for fans: no investmant in stadia, high ticket prices to pay for
over priced players, alienating local fan base, no local talent to cheer
for so you have a bizarre situation where london ppl are cheering for
african, south american, portuguese etc. players.

Therefore bad for football - facilities neglected, player development
neglected, less passionate fans, clubs in financial meltdown ...
