I think he's hilarious.
His antics as a person and genius on the field remind me of a younger Cantona. I've never researched him in-depth, but from the few things I've read, Cantona had quite a temper and could be extremely difficult to deal with even though everyone could see the talent on display.
Balotelli is just an oddball youngster with a chip on his shoulder. He's great to sit back and enjoy, but wouldn't want him at this club. He'd prematurely send Fergie to the grave with a heart attack.
In what way? Eric's issues were as a result of his extreme principles. He had very distinct and consistent issues, Mario just seems a bit randomly mental.
Exactly. Eric was and is a man of principles, while Balotelli is a man without them.
Man who crashes an Audi A8 should be shot.
Hilarious and very dislikeble at the same time.
I can't bring myself to dislike him.
Same here, which is odd because he is exactly the type of player i loathe.
A bit like Mourinho?
Yep, it's funny because it's City but it just get a bit tiresome watching anyone throw tantrums really, likewise for the 'them against me' mentality. What he does off the pitch is generally hilarious (again, mainly because it's City) but on the pitch it's all just a bit much.
Mario Balotelli and Micah Richards in training ground confrontation | Football | guardian.co.uk
Probably not - but was it him who handed over a load of money to some down and out?
Yeh it was, a grand or something.
Richards would kill him surely
That's why there's two people holding him back on no one's near Balotelli (I assume).
If Balotelli is as much as a pussy at fighting as he is at playing foootball Milner would batter him.
That article is hilarious.
It's reminds me of the time Fletcher squared up to Richards, made me chuckle that did.
That's what I like about Cafites. If it was a Man Utd player on RAWK or Bluemoon, they'd be nothing but resentment and bile posted about him.
But most of us are gentleman enough to find Balotelli amusing and entertaining. Pat yourselves on the back lads and lasses.
If you're judging on football ability Balotelli would fart and Milner falls over.
Where is Balotelli ? It looks like Yaya Toure in the background.
have you read the article?
Looks like Balo's having trouble putting his bib on again.
Racist attack on Micah
When it comes to a scrap, all the ability in the world means nothing when you've a heart the size of a pea. Based on what I've seen of Ballotelli so far this season he's the last person you'd want beside you in the trenches. I've seen more bottle and fight in a chihuahua.
EDIT: oops. Just read the article. It was Ballotelli and Richards. Even more of a mismatch, so.
No question, which for the Balotelli antic fans will only make his legend grow. The boy has no brain.
I'd imagine Mario is the type to start fights but doesn't actually enjoy being in them. Wasn't there a story about him hiding in the jacks when he was at Inter after starting one?
From when he had a bust up with Boateng
It's really nothing. Someone made a tackle the other didn't like. Words were exchange. "Fight". It's hot headed and childish but nothing serious.
Can't help wonder how Balotelli and Robinho would've got on at City.....
I wouldn't be suprised if something like this happens at least once a season at pretty much every trianing ground in the league.
The football field is an easy place to get annoyed.
Oh dear, Thomas Gravesen at Madrid. I like Robinho's ninja-like stance.
you need... emotional... content.... not anger!
now try again!... wiiiiith...meee
wtf's that? a feckin pointing contest? - with gloves, just as a precaution
One big happy family - just when Carlos goes quiet............excellent
should be plenty of emotion flying around when they get together with l'arse at the weekend. Load of fannies.
Balotelli apparently driving around Manchester dressed as Santa dishing out cash.
I'm in Birmingham right now
I actually do love him. In Italy his personality was greeted and abused with racism and he replied with arrogance and insolence. In England, we love a dickhead like him and he thrives on it. Greatstuff,
I've always loved that photo. Every single time I look at it I 'hear' Robinho making Bruce Lee sounds
Mario Balotelli buys £1,000 round in local pub and then goes to church | Mail Online
What a man. Legend.
It's a great picture
