Man City lose 2013 FA Cup Final to Wigan

Rumors swirled before the start of the 2013 FA Cup Final that even if Manchester City beat Wigan, current Málaga manager Manuel Pellegrini would replace current City manager Roberto Mancini.  City lost 1-0 to Wigan, a side that will most likely be relegated from the EPL, so there is almost no chance Mancini will retain his job.

I had hoped to be writing a retro-diary of City defeating lowly Wigan but after City's demoralizing loss I could only muster up giving a recap of all the tweets I sent during the 2013 FA Cup Final:

With increased expectations thanks to the influx of petro dollars, City face an important off-season as they try to re-group to make a legitimate run at "The Treble" (win the UEFA Champions League, the English Premier League, and the FA Cup) like their Manchester neighbors did just over a decade ago. Check back later this month for my thoughts on how management should proceed before the start of the 2013-14 season.
