At Milan, Balotelli is failing yet again. Unlike at City where he had fierce competition for a place in the starting lineup, Balotelli is guaranteed to play every game for Milan. But he has failed to show up in big games such as the those against Inter, Roma, and Fiorentina. His rate of 6 goals in 12 league games is nothing to write home about. His penalty miss against Napoli cost his club a valuable result, and I think that game marked the beginning of the end for him. The fact that Balotelli has been booked as many times as he has scored shows that he is a low-quality player with an utter lack of professionalism and mental strength. He has to be the biggest cheat and diver in the game today. When things don't go his way, he resorts to diving in the penalty box, which is the source of many of his goals. Balotelli is now facing some serious competition for a place in Italy's national team. Giuseppe Rossi is the top striker in the Serie A right now: his performance against Juventus was historic. Balotelli is also being outperformed by Torino forwards Alessio Cerci (9 goals, 7 assists in 17 games) and Ciro Immobile (8 goals in 15 games). Teenager Domenico Berardi is enjoying a breakthrough season with Sassuolo, with 7 goals and 5 assists in 12 games. Cassano is in fine form, as are veterans Totti and Luca Toni.
