    The striker appeared for the second half wearing Italy's old shirt after he had already been wearing the new one in the first half. Mario played five minutes in the old shirt before he was booked for a mid-air collision with Diego Perez and told to go change by the ref.

    Need a gif of the stamp.

    Anyone who thinks it was unintentional needs their eyes checked.

    No doubt he'll be handed a ban for that, but the damage has been done, he's just gained City 2 points.

    He should be banned for 10 games at least. Shocking. And the dive right after the stomp could have been a yellow too.

    He could have killed Parker with a stomp like that. He needs the rule book thrown out him.

    His agent is about as likeable as Mario...

    I think they'll eventually try to turn the 'Why Me? into a brand

    His interview with Noel is gonna be awesome....seriously, I hate to bang on about it, but his English is insanely good, he's been here what....18 months? He barely slips up on slang or anything much either, very rarely see fluency that well in footballers after 5 years, forget a year and a half.

    He was out on thursday night and they had a home match on Sat. And he doesnt drink...
    The club have rules and they'll discipline him accordingly.. Not really one that bothers me at the slightest.

    As far as I'm aware he spoke English before arriving in England. He's of Ghanian origin, where the national language is English, although I'm not sure the role that has to play in it.

    And I do not get the attraction to him. He comes across as an absolute knobhead who has absolutely no respect for anyone or anything.

    Surely there is more to it than that?! "...and drinking, the night before a game" or something?!

    He does seem to have respect for some things though and he seems to have his morals. Remember the story of him standing up for the schoolkid who was being bullied? It shows that he's not a mindless idiot who doesn't think. He clearly has his views on some things, and will stand up for what he thinks is right.

    Nobody really knows all about him though, which makes him an even more intriguing character in my opinion.

    You can always tell he'll have been up to something when you see this thread being bumped, can't you? It's so obvious. I've never seen a footballer, who has a lot that we could talk about on the pitch, receive so much attention for his actions of it. Almost all of this thread discusses the man himself, as opposed to him as a footballer.

    The lad is just an Enygma. BBC world service radio recently did an in depth look into Balotelli's life. The investigation showed him to a special person and a decent human being who also happens to be eccentric. When he matures, the rest of the world will get to know the none eccentric side to him more consistently.

    If he gets up to half as much as whats claimed it's great. He's living life as fun as possible, nothing wrong with that. Yeah he's cocky, arrogant, shows some lack of respect but it's pretty harmless and not everyone could get away with it. I quite like his 'don't give a feck' attitude to be honest, it's refeshing in a way with all the 'professionalism' footballers are expected to have these days. Some people could do it and I'd think they're an absolute cock. Not Ladotelli.

    So the one, remotely interesting story that's actually true is that he bought a trampoline. Well, fascinating.

    So pretty much ALL the stories that made me think he was an interesting character are false.

    Yes, exactly. I do not get the fascination with him. In fact the best thing I've heard him say, was apparently in that interview:

    There's also the fireworks in his house and the rolling pin fight in the curryhouse that didn't get asked or answered. The former is more likely to be true than the latter though.

    Balotelli has been built up to be some sort of Chuck Norris with all of these antics reported. Not a surprise that most aren't true or are just grossly exaggerated.

    So all these stories about him being a great soul because he gives money to the poor and that school thing is all false.


    Hmmm.
