From his pulpit on Monday Night Football, Jamie Carragher compared and contrasted the efforts of Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert. Unsurprisingly, the latter was compared favourably with the former.
Carragher had made his feelings on Balotelli exquisitely clear last Wednesday after the Madrid lesson. He hinted that Balotelli could face the same fate as Robbie Keane. Jamie Redknapp, anxious that Carragher was comparing Robbie and Balotelli, dived to Robbie's defence. Good man Jamie (Redknapp)!
