Annoyed by meddling journalists and their questions about poor performances in the Champions League job prospects at Monaco, Man City manager Roberto Mancini sent first-team coach David Platt to do his press conference duties before and after last weekend's match against Spurs. This week, Mancini actually did show up for his date with the press ahead of Saturday's game against Aston Villa, but he first appeared behind a terrifyingly delightful David Platt mask.
One by one, the assembled reporters gave it a hearty chuckle (something that requires a lot of effort from them) and Mancini asked them, "Do you want David or me?" Sadly, no one had the guts to say "Mario Balotelli."
Anyway, a new reboot of Michael Myers has been born.
