1. Sergio Agüero: The Quiet Neighbor
Triangle Blog Brother/Rankonia Writer Emeritus Chris Ryan nominates Agüero, who is this week’s hero:
"Are we underrating Sergio Agüero? He isn't as prone to fireworks or setting off fireworks as Mario Balotelli and he doesn't have a deep, unquenchable love of golf like Carlos Tévez, he just scores goals. Alex Ferguson called Manchester City the noisy neighbors. But the only time there is a noise surrounding the Argentine, nicknamed "Kun" (King), is when he scores. And what a sound he created Sunday.
That is not true. But since Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini would "prefer not to say" why his star striker injured his foot, forcing the Argentine to miss last weekend's match with Stoke, this weekend's clash with Sunderland, and possibly even the following game with the hottest team in the Premier Leauge, Arsenal, I am forced to wildly speculate.
"It is a stupid injury," Mancini said. "It was not his fault but he can't play with this injury; for one day, 10 days, or two weeks. I don't know." We can have a lot of fun imagining what Aguero did to himself; maybe he was doing the Bishop-Aliens-knife trick with his foot instead of his hand
