Why does Mancini persist in playing Ballotelli? The guy's nothing special; he snaps at chances in the hope of getting glory/headlines/being able to stick it to the manager, rather than compose himself, wait and control the ball, and maybe score. How many times have we seen this happen? "OH and Ballotelli is IN oh no wait he's skyed it!"

And TEVEZ is left on the bench? Come on: had he been playing from the start I think Man City would have won that, or at least made it a lot harder for United. And when Mario is taken off/substituted he ALWAYS ****s off down the tunnel, throwing his toys out of the pram. How team-spirited is that? Thinks he's Maradona in his prime, or something!

He has no god-given right to be picked. He should be happy when he is, not moan when he isn't. And when on the pitch, Mario, JUSTIFY your ****ing selection! WORK for your place! Everyone else has to!

The perfect antithesis of Mario Ballotelli: Edin Djeko (sp?)--- hardly ever starts, but when he's subbed in he more often than not gets a goal, often the winning one. Does he complain that he's not picked for the starting eleven? No, he supports his team-mates and when he gets a chance to shine, he bloody well does! Course he'd like to be starting every week, but not everyone can. Djeko realises that, Mario does not, and so the Chelsea man gets more goals when subbed in than Mario does when either subbed in or out...

Dzeko mate, and agree with everything you said. Balotelli is overrated just because he's seen as a wacky character. He's a cock. Can't stand all the Balotelli cocksuckers either.

That backheel was hilarious too, 2nd time he's done that.

I don't get why mancini doesn't always start tevez. He is the driving force in that team, without him they're relatively easy to contain. Balotelli is a childish numpty with occasional flashes of the player he could be, but probably won't become.

I just wish tevez had come to liverpool all those years ago...I wanted it then and he's still pure quality.

I suppose if you look into it more deeply he's probably still pissed that Tevez left him in the lurch last season, and that had he been there, they could probably have won the title easier and earlier (though not as dramatically: how cool was that?) --- I think he should maybe draw a line under it.

Mancini: "Okay here's the lineup for Saturday. Carlos, you're in. Mario, get me a sandwich. And try not to mess the order up this time!"

Nah, he should realise he's handicapping one of his biggest talents and let Tevez have his first team place every week. They can't afford to be dancing around this issue, specially after yesterday.

Bradford vs Arsenal, Arsenal went out on penalties, funny as ****. Listening to Talksport now and the gooners sound absolutely distraught.

So was that an own goal for Arsene's men? And Bradford still only drew? And BEAT Arsenal on penalties? Christ! Who took them?

This would be League Cup then, I presume?

Own goal? Gervinho missed an open goal in that gif mate. League Cup yeah mate, looking like it'll be 8 years for Arsenal now.
