    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.

    I have no idea either, yet.
    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.

    Same here, which is odd because he is exactly the type of player i loathe.

    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.

    Probably not - but was it him who handed over a load of money to some down and out?

    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.

    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.

    ... and they are lovely beyond any singing of it.
    If you're judging on football ability Balotelli would fart and Milner falls over.

    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?

    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.

    Balotelli apparently driving around Manchester dressed as Santa dishing out cash.

    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,
