A nice read into his early life, but it paints him as City's saviour and the guy who single handedly won the the title last year Laughing

You think? I thought it was pretty fair in terms of judging his on-field play...It said he repaid his price tag with 13 goals, which is a stretch, but it also said that he needs to score far more...which is definitely true

I thought it also made clear the point of his unpredictability, which both makes him exciting to watch and very inconsistent, i.e another weakness in his game...


On an unrelated note, even though I was sure that the footballing side of the article would obviously come up, thats not the main reason I posted the article really, as I don't get my football info from TIME (Laughing) but I did think the European Identity/Race issues were far more interesting

Very good piece. Thanks for posting. I didn't know the new middle class black Italians were called the "Balotelli Generation" or about the puns in newspapers alluding to his race.

Yeah that's a good read.

Thoroughly fascinating player. Not yet one of my favorites, but he's getting there.
