<b>Roberto Mancini v Paul Lambert</b><br/>
During Manchester City's surprise Capital One Cup defeat at home to Aston Villa, Roberto Mancini entered into an exchange with Paul Lambert when the latter seemed to object to the City manager questioning the fourth official over why a yellow card had not been shown. After the match, Mancini said: 'I am tired of these managers. I did not say anything to him, I only asked if it was a yellow card and he comes over [to argue] every time. I am tired of this, I am very tired.' Mancini then went on to warn others about such behaviour. 'Some managers had better shut up because I was only asking the fourth official because I thought the referee had left his yellow card in the dressing room. I don't like this behaviour. When they go to Old Trafford, they say nothing.'

As Ruud Gullit might say, there has been a lot of sexy football played in the first week of Euro 2012, and without Sven the Swedish lothario anywhere to be seen. But not much of it has been played by England, who have discarded their fancy foreign clothing in favour of Roy Hodgson's "No sex please, we're English" mentality, with its focus on rearguard actions and opening up from the back.
