Appears that Man City need Toure more than Liverpool needed Suarez or Spurs needed Bale.

The most expensive one man team ever assembled.

There is so much wrong with this post its scary

Anyone hear Football Weekly today? My ears might have deceived me but I think Jimbo read out an e-mail from Disciple. WHAT.

He read out the most expensive one man team ever assembled. Clearly AC Jimbo agrees with me, great posting again.

Yaya is their best player when he's in the mood IMO, but that doesn't always happen. Definitely better than Silva, probably not Aguero though in general. Also I suppose Yaya will be on the wane soon, if he's not already.

Either way it's fucking retarded to call them a one-man team.

I've heard a number of times that many City fans consider Silva the best player they've ever had and Henry suggested the same the other day.

In any case, we can all agree that Disciple is talking rubbish. Ivory Coast have underachieved for years.

I can see why they'd think that because Yaya often looks like he can't really be arsed and it probably frustrates their fans no end. But Silva can be shut out of a game like he was on Sunday, even by a mediocre player like Coquelin. That match would probably have been very different if you had a fired up Yaya in the middle though.

But yes, I definitely agree he's talking rubbish.

John O'Shea is miles better than Figo.

The Coquelin thing is just an example, obviously I'm not basing my assessment on one match. When all three are in good form I think it's much easier to keep Silva quiet than it is Aguero or Yaya, basically.

I agree that due to his more diminutive stature & style of play, Silva can be shut out easier than Toure, who's virtually unstoppable when he's in beast mode. But when he's on song Silva is an absolute magician & the best player in the league to watch, for me. (Although it's probably being an Arsenal supporter that leads to me having a soft spot for small, highly technical players).

What's happened to Matic? He's been a bit meh since Christmas but was complete bollocks tonight. Fatigue maybe? Mourinho does tend to play the same XI game after game.

Probably hype after being outstanding in just a handful of games rather than being outstanding for a long, long time. See also Berahino at West Brom.

Bit harsh, he'd been largely excellent since he joined really, but his form does seem to have tailed off a fair bit in the last month or so.
