Manchester City's new manager, Manuel Pellegrini, may or may not turn out to be an improvement over his predecessor Roberto Mancini from a results standpoint.
Journalists covering City, though, have to be thrilled at the change.
Mancini was notoriously crusty and terse, traits that he overcame when things were going well.
When Mancini's team fell apart at the end of last season, though, neither his players nor the press had many kind words for him.
Every end is bad in its way, sure, but somehow it is difficult to imagine such a crashing fall for Pellegrini at City.
Particularly since just about every word he has uttered since assuming control of the Sky Blues has been so thoughtful and well-chosen.
Pellegrini is going to be a boon to the media covering Manchester City. Even in the short time he has been in charge he has been very quotable.
