He's a great footballer but I hate watching him play because when he's at his best all you hear is stupid comments from the commentators like : ''Mario is great on the pitch but my god is he a crazy man'' and ''quality player its a shame he has to let himself down with his stupid antics'' why not mention ashley cole and john terry's affairs every time they touch the ball ?
Just 21 years old and he's already played a role in his club's winning the Premiership and his country's appearance in a European championship. Imagine if he gets top scorer and wins...
He's a great player even when he's not scoring goals. Surely I'm not the only one who saw how many times Hummels/Badstuber/Boateng fouled Balo as he held up the ball yesterday? Not only that, he's getting better and better at timing his runs. Dribbling, strength, aerial ability, and a thunderous shot; super Mario is the complete modern-day striker.
I love how everyone's started loving him now, even though the same people were like '****ing disgrace hope he goes to jail for assault' after he stamped/tripped up/whatever on Scott Parker a few months back.
For the record, I've liked him ever since that quality flick goal against Blackburn(?), he just has this swagger and nonchalance you have to admire.
He's overrated. Commentators wet themselves over him and it's silly.
I think he is a perfectly good player in decent form with an attitude problem, but still perfectly good. He is not special though. Sorry. Pundits are fickle and talk out of their arse. I've seen enough below average performances from him with Man City and would not rely on such a drama queen.
