    The definition of a legend seems to have been watered down over the years.

    Right - so he splashes out £1000 for drinks then gives only £200 to the church?

    He didn't really splash out on drinks for himself did he, he went to a pub and announced he was paying for everybodies drinks and then went to church and made a donation. Merry Christmas to all I say. He's a cockend at times but credit where it's due. He could just have easy gone to a posh place paid for his own drinks refused to talk to anyone and gone home.

    Actually it would have been fine if he had splashed out 1000 on himself then gave 200 to church...but the irony is he decides to be "charitable" but his choice of charity was £1000 to the drinkers and £200 to the church...something wrong there!

    Not really, for 1 thing you don't know he's religious, I've been to church at Christmas and I'm not religious, any donation given should be respected, also the £1000 was devided between a lot of punters, it's not like he gave 1 person a grand and the church 5 times less, he paid for what looks like everybody in the pub and then gave the church more in one go than he effectively gave each punter in the pub. Also didn't he give a tramp a grand or something after he left the casino in Manchester opne night?

    It's a sad time when people dissect donations and charitible acts and try to prioritise them or say someone should have given differently to how they did. It's still a charitible act whichever way you try to make it look.

    So? Nothing wrong with what he did, I'm sure the locals in that pub would have appreciated the gesture immensely..he didn't have to do it.

    If he also gives to regular charities then you can't really fault these random acts.

    I do wonder what bs stories you could make up and get people believing when it comes to Balotelli though, nothing seems too outrageous.

    Anyone care to give it a go?

    I think he's incredibly over rated by some and can be irritating on the pitch but I'm starting to reqlly quite like him.

    Rumour started as a joke by a journo on twitter, poking fun at how these Ballotelli rumours spread.

    https://twitter.com/#!/AnnieEaves

    Pretty much spread like wildfire after that. :lol:

    Like someone mentioned above, it's pretty easy to spread lies about Balotelli.

    Are pro footballers forbidden from smoking or is it strongly suggested to them not to ?

    Its stupid for footballers to smoke. Its not exactly stressed by clubs, because its absolutely widespread and the players should realise it will only hinder their performances, but what can the clubs do? Its a habit, so its difficult for them to control. Virtually every club in the league has at least one player that smokes though.

    As far as I'm aware, Rooney, Berbatov and Macheda are the only smokers in our team.

    Balotelli is a leg end. I've called mates it for far less.

    Classic topical humour of an incident from 5 years ago and a song from 10 years ago (didn't realise it was that long!).

    What has Sophie Ellis Bexter been up to lately anywho?

    As far as the charity goes, it is not only ignorant, its insulting to suggest that he "should have donated more". Millions of people go their entire lives without making a single charitable contribution. Who am I to say how someone spends their own money, let alone how much they should give to charity.


    He does needs to fix his attitude on the pitch though.

    He needs a sitcom about him, would be the most random programme ever.

    Has the story about him and the kid who was bullied at school been posted yet?
