Mario Balotelli is a complicated character. If your definition of complicated is a man-child loony tune who quite possibly picks up CB radio using his hair as an antennae.
The overhead kick was relatively sublime. His celebration was ‘complicated.’
Andy Johnson scored Manchester City’s second thanks to a schoolboy error. His celebration was normal if your definition of normal is that he looked quite happy to have done so. But Villa’s defense simply wasn’t at the races and the third goal was a product of endless pressure and Kompany headed home without opposition from a corner.
Villa’s goal was angrily hit home by Warnock . On any other day it would have been an important goal.
James Milner finished the Villans off with a what against any other team would have been a ‘wonder goal.’ But Villa’s back four were lamentable.
I don’t know if they were just out of their depth against a really expensive side finding some frightening form, or if Alex McLeish simply needs to eBay his current mob without a reserve price.
