Mario Balotelli is hilarious

Of all the things that we football fans find most irritating about modern day football is its up-its-own-backside seriousness: everything is analysed (badly) in hushed tones, and every single incident is blown up into a potential crisis.

Take this hilarious piece of Mario Balotelli messing about, for instance. The young Italian striker tried an cheeky backheel finish in Manchester City's pre-season friendly with Los Angeles Galaxy, and missed. He looked like a bit of a plum, but scarcely deserved to be substituted straight away. What a silly overreaction.
