    Not even sure it's true. Balo clearly had incredible talent but never kicked on. Now everyone seems to think he is/was shit, which was never the case. He was class for us, considering how young he was. And now he is refinding his form for nice. Where is Nasri? Turkey.

    Nasri has never given a shiny one about niceties- he's not gonna start now! IMO it's not that Balotelli was overrated, more that he underachieved. Though I suppose you could say that's just semantics- they both pretty much mean the same thing but from different sides.

    On a side note, I can't believe Nasri played 171 times for us. I know he was here for 5 seaaons so that is clearly right...it just feels way too many!

    Bit of a cheap shot from Nasri, but then again he's never really been shy about expressing his opinions! Don't really recall any beef between the two whilst at City though? That said, Balotellicould probably quite plausibly name Nasri if asked the same question.

    The axis of YaYa, Merlin and Nasri moving ever closer toward the opponent's goal will stay with me forever.

    Pep's decision to move him on was the correct one. More unity within the squad.

    I don't miss him.

    Cooley slotted penalty against Spurs. He played a big part in the title season.

    It bothers me that fans drop appreciation of players so readily. Nobody is perfect but Samir was a top player for the club.

    Nasri was as talented as anyone. Could have been so much more, but still top class player for us.


    Still a bit of a cnut though
