Twelve minutes… Twelve minutes that may have secured Champions league qualification… Twelve minutes when Roberto Mancini, finally, got it right.

Roberto Mancini is a very lucky boy, Paul Scholes can consider himself ever so slightly harshly done by and that has to be the most ridiculous 5 extra minutes ever added to a match.

There's a saying "never drive when angry." To add my own Poulter twist I try to make a point of never writing when angry. Hence a 24-hour cool down before I started even thinking about the Liverpool game. The sheer utter ineptitude was staggering and more importantly it flew in the face of everything Mancini has been trying to do with City all year.

AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi has said that he is not keen to sign Mario Balotelli due to the forward's behaviour.

Balotelli, a Milan supporter, has been strongly linked with a move to the Rossoneri since leaving Inter for Manchester City in the summer.

However, Balotelli has continued to attract negative headlines for his antics on and off the field and he was recently dropped from the Italy squad for breaking Cesare Prandelli's code of conduct.
