Hats off to Mr. James Pearce at the Liverpool Echo, who has won the Twitter wars for today with the most perfectly worded tweet about the ongoing spat between Jamie Carragher and Mario Balotelli.
Here is the tweet in question:
Commitment, professionalism, loyalty, making the best of your ability, securing legendary status. Carragher and Balotelli – polar opposites
— James Pearce (@JamesPearceEcho) September 3, 2016
He was far from the only one to pick up on the sheer irony of a guy who has a worse recent goalscoring record that some South American goalkeepers.
You’re a striker and you’ve scored two goals in two seasons, Mario – TWO!!!
Here’s a brief summary what’s being said (sadly, at the time of writing, Jamie himself hasn’t replied!):
This balotelli having a laugh hes fucking shite an always has been

In one tweet Balotelli completely made me regret saying I hope he’d turn his career around.

Funny the twats dislike Carragher – Diouf and Balotelli. Maybe because he doesn’t mince his words or take any shit. pic.twitter.com/BAtry7ekDB
