There is a willful Luddism about English football and, at times, it's infuriating. When Manchester City sacked Robert Mancini toward the end of last season, it released a statement that, slightly foolishly, contained the word "holistic." It's a term not often used in football, one that carries a whiff of patchouli, of blissed out gurus and robed believers, an image wholly at odds with gritty, industrial Manchester. And so it was derided.
