ESPN – Mario Balotelli to land POTY award as rival fans hijack Liverpool vote

Mario Balotelli has not exactly shone in a Liverpool shirt this season. As a great man once (sort of) said, there are but three certainties in this life: death, taxes and every interactive online football poll being hijacked by fans of rival clubs. We're paraphrasing a little there but you get the gist. Despite having done little beyond the square root of nothing in a Liverpool shirt all season, there is a good chance Mario Balotelli is to be voted their Player of the Year after — you guessed it — fans of rival clubs hijacked the poll on the Reds' official website.
