I have said that balotelli could be or cantona more than once. The problem foe our strikers is the rotation policy. They score then they are on the bench....not good for confidence players like Dzeko. Cantona was influential as he played so many games.

I think what everyone's forgetting is how young Balotelli is. Cantona only came went to Manu at age 26...There's plenty of time left for Balo to reach legend status at City and polish off the few flaws that remain for him to be considered one of the best fotballers in the world. Personally I think the lad has that genius streak to him but it is yet to fully blossom :-)

Cantona eh boys ?its nice that they chose one of our Icons as a comparison with your potentially very talented young man . I see him more of a later day Neil young ( great goal in 1969 cup final ).

The lad has got it all. If he can maintain that focus he will be a massive player for us in January.
