Arsenal need a maverick
The idea of Arsenal needing a maverick figure first surfaced last summer when the north London club launched an ill-fated £40million-plus-a-quid-bid for then-Liverpool’s Luis Suarez.
The Uruguayan cannibal was seen as an ideal candidate to add some clinical nastiness to the Gunners’ collective mentality, whilst his ability to pull off the unimaginable, in turn, would be an inspiration for those around him.
Well, Mario Balotelli would certainly be an effective alternative. He too is a rather feisty character…
Who also has a knack of conjuring moments of individual world-class magic:
Of course, whilst Suarez’s flesh-lust is justified by his consistent potency, the same can’t always be said for the Italy international, who is often just pure crazy:
But if Balotelli’s talismanic quality and unpredictability can add a new sense of ruthlessness to the Gunners, he will make them genuine title contenders.
Then again. He might just be too insane…
Only a psychopath would have that many stickers of himself!
