Mercato Milan: Mario Balotelli

Mercato Milan: Mario Balotelli

For the second time in as many days I find myself publishing a video clip in its native language. Yesterday it was Pablo Zabaleta talking in Spanish and today its Super Mario being filmed by Italian broadcaster Mediaset.

Many of us know Mario and Roberto Mancini went to the Milan game at the weekend and as you would expect the tabloids in the UK are making up stories on just how unsettled Balotelli is meant to be. Yeah right, it's obviously a slow news week.

For our Italian speaking readers - enjoy.

Hmm I dont know. I think you would be foolish if you think you're going to keep him for long. He expressed, while at Inter, a desire to join AC Milan and wasn't he caught wearing a AC Milan shirt as well? Also, when he joined City he expressed a desire to stay in Italy and learn his trait there. Now he has 'conincedently' been caught in the same restaurant as the AC Milan president. Then you've got Johnson saying he's willing to quit if first team football isn't offered to him, clearly unhappy with the squad rotation (which barely happens). Tevez recently admitting that if his daughters were to ask him to return to Argentina he would do so in a heartbeat. Yaya Toure leaving at half-time and squabbling amongst the players. Adebayor, Bellamy and Given all looking set to leave. Not to mention Mancini supposedly being under pressure (I dont believe that point myself). Should be interesting times ahead. Can i just say its fair enough securing the CL spot this season but eventially the financial fair play rules are going to catch up with you and that rediculous wage bill will mean some big names are going to be cut.

TheFamousNo7 - did you ever consider a career in tabloid journalism? or perhaps a script writer for a soap opera? You appear to have all the credentials.

So do you City fans Bluedub, all this bull5h1t about being a domineering force in football.

I take it you're referring to Garry Cook's comments there? Can I just remind you that the project set out by ADUG is set out over a ten year time frame, as we stand we are merely in the infancy of the project, yet we have been taken from a club struggling with mid table mediocrity to a team challenging for CL qualification within a couple of seasons. If we continue to improve at the rate we have been who knows where that may take us. One thing I do know for sure is that City are a club on the up. Tick tock

Team? I don't think that what you can call a group of mercenaries thrown onto a pitch together a 'team'. Your snooze-fest football wont get you too far in the CL especially when teams like Inter, Barca and Madrid are capable of splitting even the most disciplined defenses with ease. You wouldn't know that though...
16/11/2010 22:04:00
As long as Mancini stays, Balotelli will. But if we sack Mancini, Balotelli will request to leave as he isn't mature enough to deal being alone in a foreign country without having a figure like Mancini. Mancini promoted him to Inter's first team from the youth team and they are close.
16/11/2010 23:02:00
By the way, to the rag obsessed with us, Inter played the most defensive, tactical football possible against Barca in last year's CL final and grinded out the win in the most disciplined, unspectacular fashion possible.
16/11/2010 23:03:00
Well, well well, once a red always a red eh Famous? P.S. Hope you're going to give the ultimate mercenary a big warm rag welcome when he returns against Wigan.
16/11/2010 23:10:00
P.S. Famous - I reckon you've been emboldened by the news that the Glazers are "Paying off" some of that vast mountain of debt and that's the reason you've plucked up the courage to come over here and have a go - well read this, it might take the smug red grin off your face:
