How Roberto Mancini changed Yaya Toure from a defensive midfielder into an attacking mid was just amazing
Who is this soccer player? He has got into a fight with Yaya Toure and Roberto Mancini before, he has walked with 25 thousand pounds and when asked by the police he said 'because I can', he said Messi is the best himself being second, he went to ladies' prison coz he was curious, went into a high school just to use the toilet, made E. Dzeko to fall to the ground just for fun, was found with an Inter Milan jersey him being an AC Milan player , his celebration is linked to a lot of things, had sex with a stripper while girlfriend was downstairs, when at Man City he laughed at the way Joe Hart dived and even exagerated it, took a lens off of a camera of a paparazzi, hated coz his race, associated with a criminal gang like a mafia, he has made an epic miss when trying to score with his back heel, failed to wear a training vest that he was assisted, removed it and failed to wear it again, bought an iPad just because he was bored on the bench, set the house on fire when his team won against Manchester United, d ...
Toure: We're going to make history (PA) Friday 28 February 2014 Share Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure hopes Sunday proves the start of another successful chapter in the club's history. City take on Sunderland in the League Cup final at Wembley this weekend looking to win a third major in four seasons. Having gone 35 years without silverware prior to the 2011 FA Cup win, City are undoubtedly enjoying their rich new, Abu Dhabi-funded, era. But after last season's frustrations under Roberto Mancini, success on Sunday would be the first trophy since Manuel Pellegrini took charge and Toure hopes the club is just beginning to realise its potential. The Côte d'Ivoire international said: "This game is going to be very important for the club as well and for the people, the fans. We are coming here to make great things for the club. "I love the Premier League, I love the Champions League and FA Cup, all the games. Playing the finals - we go there to make history with the club. If we have a lot of trophies an ...
Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero is out for a month with a hamstring injury he sustained in the midweek win at Tottenham Hotspur. Midfielders Samir Nasri and Javi Garcia are also unavailable, with knee and muscle injuries respectively. Chelsea will monitor the fitness of winger Mohamed Salah following his move from Basel. Salah missed Wednesday's derby against West Ham along with Fernando Torres, who is sidelined with a knee injury. It could be explosive. It's bound to be fascinating. Having been frustrated by West Ham's "19th Century football", Jose Mourinho now has to come up with a plan to counter football from another planet. Well, not quite, but football being played by "the best team on the planet", according to Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood. It's a match that pitches the Premier League's most potent attack against its tightest defence, which in itself shows the massive difference a change of coach can have on the ethos of a club. Last season Roberto Mancini's City were the most miserly team arou ...
Any minute now, Manchester City will (finally) introduce Manuel Pellegrini as their new manager, per Mark Ogden of the Telegraph. Already, though, the new man has some new toys. Fernandinho was signed last week; he joins a spectacularly loaded midfield which boasts the likes of Yaya Toure, David Silva and, yes, the resurgent Samir Nasri. And just recently, per BBC Sport, Manchester City announced the signing of Jesus Navas from Sevilla. Though Fernandinho cost City more money and is arguably the more accomplished player, Navas might actually have the greater chance to force his way into City's starting 11. Why? Because, unless you think Scott Sinclair is going to suddenly reemerge, Navas has almost no competition on City's roster to play his natural position on the right wing. Think about it. City has all those midfielders, sure, but even on the days when Nasri played well last season, he did not seriously approximate a wing player. That was due largely to former manager Roberto Mancini's dogged efforts t ...
Top Ten Premier League Games of 2012/13 with Videos 10. Manchester City 2-3 Manchester United This thrilling Manchester derby on the 9th of December was when the title really started to sway in United’s direction. Wayne Rooney scored two first half goals to give his side a shock 2-0 lead at the home of the champions. City then looked to be making their comeback, scoring through Yaya Toure on the hour mark, and then through Pablo Zabaleta late on in the 86th minute. With the game heading for a draw, Roberto Mancini witnessed a painful moment as his main transfer target of the summer, Robin van Persie, scored a stoppage time winner for United from a free kick. 9. Arsenal 5-2 Tottenham Once again, these two sides produced a classic in the North London derby. Like last season, Tottenham scored first at the Emirates Stadium, with former Gunner Emmanuel Adebayor capitalising on some poor Arsenal defending to put the visitors in front.

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has welcomed Yaya Toure's decision to sign a new four-year contract with the club
BPL TOP 5 EXPENSIVE TEAMS: 1. Manchester City - £380m Manchester City spent a club record fee to complete the signing of Atletico Madrid striker Sergio Aguero in the summer of 2011 and, after an instrumental role in delivering the title in his first season with the club, the Argentine remains the most highly-valued player on the books at the Etihad Stadium. According to Transfermarkt, Aguero's present market value of £39.5 million places him at the top of Manchester City's rankings, although he is closely followed by fleet-footed Spaniard David Silva. City spent £25 million to acquire Silva from Valencia, and his value has soared since his arrival in Manchester, with the 27-year-old worth 54 percent more now than he was upon arrival almost three years ago. Manchester City have two other players valued in excess of £30 million in Yaya Toure (£31.5m) and Vincent Kompany (£31m), making Roberto Mancini's squad the most valued in the Premier League. 2. Manchester United - £370m On Friday, Sir Alex Fergu ...

Man City Team news: Maicon has been ruled out for a month after undergoing minor knee surgery, while Gareth Barry and Vincent Kompany both remain doubtful for the trip to Villa although Roberto Mancini was far more positive on Barry's chances of a return. The City boss must decide whether to maintain the recent 4-5-1 formation rolled out against Chelsea, which saw Yaya Toure tuck in behind Sergio Aguero, or move back to 4-4-2, with Carlos Tevez perhaps the favourite to get the nod to partner his compatriot. Barry's return could see Jack Rodwell dropped to the bench, while Kolo Toure could retain his start in defence should Kompany fail to make it - Joleon Lescott, benched against Chelsea, presents an alternative. admin "Amit"
Manchester - Manchester City galvanised their grip on second place in the English Premier League and trimmed Manchester United's lead back to 12 points with a 2-0 victory at home to nearest rivals Chelsea on Sunday. After Chelsea's Frank Lampard had seen a penalty saved by England colleague Joe Hart, City prevailed through a pair of fine second-half goals from man-of-the-match Yaya Toure and substitute Carlos Tevez. Although City's chances of retaining their league title remain decidedly slender, they now have a seven-point advantage over Chelsea, who could slip to fourth if Tottenham Hotspur overcome West Ham United on Monday. Both City Manager Roberto Mancini and his Chelsea counterpart Rafael Benitez flooded their sides with midfielders at the Etihad Stadium, while Benitez opted to leave John Terry and Fernando Torres on thebench. City deployed Sergio Aguero as a lone striker and although he had to plough a lone furrow, it was the hosts who dominated the firsthalf. Visiting goalkeeper Petr Cech had to ...
Match Report: Manchester City 2 CHELSEA 0 Posted on: Sun 24 Feb 2013 Summary In a game that sprung to life after a first half of limited opportunities, Chelsea were left to rue a saved Frank Lampard penalty when Yaya Toure gave the home side the lead soon after. Substitute Carlos Tevez sealed the result with a late strike. Manchester City came the closer to finding the net in the first half, Petr Cech and a series of blocks by the Chelsea defence with Gary Cahill to the fore keeping Roberto Mancini's men at bay. There was more threat to Chelsea's play in the more open second half but we continued to look vulnerable to City's attacking moves, although had Lampard found the net when Demba Ba was fouled in the area shortly after the break, the home team's confidence after their recent shaky run of results might have been in question. Instead it took a good strike to open the scoring at the other end and from that moment on the points looked destined to go to the second-placed side. Chelsea remain in third bu ...
Chief Football Editor Adam Higgins from the Etihad Stadium Barclays Premier League - Manchester City 2-0 Chelsea (FT) "Manchester City are starting to signs of not giving up on the race for the Premier League title but remain hopeful of clawing back the massive twelve points required with eleven games to go. They must keep churning out results and not let antics off the field, speculation about Roberto Mancini's job and teams around them in the table affect what they are doing on the field. They had the first half under control without really forcing the issue too much, monopolised possession but just couldn't find a way to get the opening goal. Chances were at a premium with Nastasic and Rodwell coming the closest with headers. You would be forgiven to think that given the City line-up with five man in midfield, Yaya Toure would have been the more advanced of the three in the centre of the park in the first half yet Jack Rodwell showed a level of maturity to push forward and use his energy. He was vibran ...
Hart save inspires City, Toon beat Saints Joe Hart produced a stunning penalty save to deny Frank Lampard as Manchester City kept neighbours United within 12 points by beating Chelsea on Sunday, while Newcastle eased their relegation fears with victory at home to Southampton.Roberto Mancini has been a heavy critic of Manchester City 'keeper Hart in recent weeks, but he delivered a monumental save at a crucial time to help the champions to a 2-0 triumph over Chelsea. The scores were goalless when Hart got a strong hand to Lampard's 52nd-minute spot-kick, and moments later Yaya Toure opened the scoring before Carlos Tevez wrapped things up. City - knowing they simply had to win to keep their title defence alive - started strongly on home soil, forcing a fine stop from Petr Cech as Matija Nastasic met an in-swinging corner from the right. Sergio Aguero then wasted another glorious opening when he found himself one-on-one with Cech, forcing the ball too wide when trying to round the keeper. Jack Rodwell was n ...

REALDREAM'S FINEST Match Report: Manchester City capitalise on Frank Lampard's missed penalty for Chelsea »Manchester City 2 Chelsea 0 » Yaya Toure and Carlos Tevez took advantage of a rare Frank Lampard penalty miss to fire Manchester City to their first Barclays Premier League win in a month. Lampard was a kick away from his 200th Chelsea goal when he lined up a second-half spot-kick at the Etihad Stadium but Joe Hart, who stayed on after fouling Demba Ba, saved from his England team-mate. Yaya Toure made Chelsea pay with a fine finish from inside the area and substitute Tevez made victory certain with a long-range effort late on. The result reduced Manchester United's lead at the top of the table to 12 points but, perhaps more importantly with the title drifting away, increased City's advantage over third-placed Chelsea to seven. Both managers had gone into the game under considerable pressure but City boss Roberto Mancini ended it far happier than Chelsea counterpart Rafael Benitez, who suffered mor ...

Manchester City - Liverpool Preview: Mancini's men look to claw back seven-point gap at the top- The hosts fell further behind league leaders Manchester United in midweek and face a Reds side who need a win to boost their hopes of Champions League qualification. The game is likely to have come too soon for Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany (calf), while the same can be said about Micah Richards (knee) who is edging closer to a return. Brothers Kolo and Yaya Toure remain on Africa Cup of Nations duty with Ivory Coast, meaning Roberto Mancini is unlikely to make too many changes. Phillip Coutinho could feature from the bench on Sunday after completing his switch from Inter whilst Jose Reina (hip) is set to continue in goal after returning against Arsenal in midweek. Andre Wisdom will probably continue at right-back despite the probable return of Jose Enrique, with Glen Johnson filling in at left-back despite his battles with a hamstring strain.

Daniel Sturridge is set to reach a personal milestone as he makes a return to former club Manchester City on Sunday. Liverpool's No.15 is set to play the 100th game of his league career so far on his reunion with City. The striker played 32 games for City in all competitions scoring six goals. He played for City against Liverpool in the 2006 FA Youth Cup Final scoring twice at the Etihad but Liverpool won the final on aggregate. His City league debut came six years ago today (Sunday) as a substitute in a 2-0 defeat by Reading. He has never scored against City since he left the club. Here are the rest of the facts and figures ahead of the clash with Roberto Mancini's side from club statto Ged Rea. Earlier this season the sides drew 2-2 at Anfield. Twice Liverpool led through Martin Skrtel and Luis Suarez but City hit back through Yaya Toure and Carlos Tevez. On this ground last season City won 3-0 with goals from Sergio Aguero, Yaya Toure and James Milner (penalty). In between those two fixtures was the Re ...

Can Mancini retain his job? by Sunday Oliseh 03/04/2012, 09:49 Roberto Mancini, manager of the world’s richest club, Manchester City, is definitely having sleepless nights these days! Why? His job and future as manager of this, now world renowned club, is threatened to say the least! Manchester City lie second in the Premier League, 5 points behind eternal Rivals Manchester United. Thanks to their 3-3 home draw vs. Sunderland whilst Manchester United came off at Blackburn with a 0-2 victory. Who could have thought this possible just a few months ago when City lead the pack, at one point with as much as 9 points!

The month of a million tenuous links has begun and we’ll ensure none of the transfer rumours involving City slip under the radar. So what’s the best the January transfer window can bring us on New Year’s Day? Well, if you were looking for any major breaking news, you’ll be disappointed. In fact there was a time when you could rely on at least one story connecting the Blues with some mega-bucks transfer target, but there is actually precious little today. After scouring the usual suspects, the best we can come up with is two snippets of players linked with moves AWAY – and as Roberto Mancini has already said he can’t afford to lose any of his squad, they both look unlikely. TalkSPORT confirm as much as they report: “Mancini has ruled out letting Joleon Lescott leave Manchester City in January. “Lescott has been linked with a move back to his former club Everton, having lost his starting place at the Etihad Stadium this season. “But, with Yaya Toure and his brother Kolo heading to the Afr ...
Yaya Toure's trip to the ACN might be a good thing for Manchester City The midfielder is one of the few droppable players at City, but his form has been indifferent this season, and an enforced break might help both the club and the player. Roberto Mancini has said today that he expects Yaya Toure to decide to play for the Ivory Coast at the African Cup of Nations in the New Year, despite the club hoping he might opt to stay in England. Toure is no doubt keen to try and avenge his country's penalty shootout loss in the final of the tournament earlier this year, and there is also a feeling that the upcoming competition is the last chance for national legends like Drogba and Toure to win the trophy that has eluded them. Toure's absence will be seen as a blow to Manchester City, with the player key to much of their success over the past couple of years. It was his goal that won them the FA Cup in 2011, and his scoring spree in the last few games of last season brought home the title. Toure is perhaps the onl ...
LINE-UPS! 12:45 Newcastle United v Manchester City John Brewin has previewed today's game. Read the preview here. Newcastle: Krul, Simpson, Williamson, Coloccini, Santon, Perch, Tiote, Anita, Cisse, Ba, Gutierrez. Manchester City: Hart, Zabaleta, Kolo Toure, Nastasic, Clichy, Garcia, Yaya Toure, Nasri, Silva, Tevez, Aguero. And even though their derby defeat was their first in the Premier League this season, City haven't been firing on all cylinders either. Roberto Mancini looks a troubled man, laying into his players at various stages. With the Champions League gone, it is all about the league and FA Cup for them now. Newcastle are hurting with injuries - Ben Arfa, their main creative spark, and Cabaye, their midfield lynchpin is out for another month. So too, is Steven Taylor, meaning Williamson is the only recognised centre half left to partner Coloccini. So, two teams in pretty poor form meet at St James' Park. City have suffered two successive defeats, while Newcastle have lost five of their past six ...

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini admits midfielder Yaya Toure is likely to be unavailable for five weeks due to his Africa Cup of Nations involvement. Mancini had hoped the Ivorian would opt out of the tournament but now expects him to leave after City's FA Cup third round tie against Watford on 5 January. "It is difficult," said the Italian. "I think he will go to the Africa Nations Cup after the Watford game." The tournament in South Africa runs from 19 January to 10February. Toure has been a key figure in the centre of City's midfield since joining from Barcelona for £24m in 2010. He played in this year's Africa Cup of Nations as Ivory Coast lost the final to Zambia on penalties but managed 32 league appearances as City won the Premier League for the first time, ending a 44-year wait for thetop prize in English football. The champions suffered their first defeat of the season last weekend against Manchester United and are six points behind their local rivalsin this year's title race. It was cla ...
Mancini wants a Brazilian: City boss hopes £12m Paulinho can revive title chances Corinthians attacking midfielder who could face Chelsea in this week's Club World Cup is a January target for the champions - watch him in action here Roberto Mancini wants his Manchester City bosses to sign Brazilian star Paulinho in the transfer window. Mancini has asked his money-men to finance a move for the midfield dynamo, who's set to play for Corninthians in the Club World Cup this week, and hopes to do a deal at around £12 million. The Italian thinks he needs fresh legs in midfield, where his side have been relying on Yaya Toure and Gareth Barry, with Nigel De Jong sold in the summer and replacement Javi Garcia failing to make an impact. In addition, Toure could be absent at the Africa Cup of Nations next month, stretching City's squad during a vital period of the title campaign and handing leaders and neighbours Manchester United even more of an advantage. Mancini, who watched City lose to United on Sunday to fal ...

Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has insisted that he enjoys playing in the intense atmosphereof a derby match. Roberto Mancini's side host Manchester United on Sunday when the fierce rivals resume hostilities at the Etihad. Toure believes that the pressure of performing in a high-stakes match brings out the best in him but causes some to buckle. He told The Sun: "Some guys get stressed but it's water off a duck's back to me. The eyes of the football world will be centred on Manchester and that suits me fine. These are games I love because it is a challenge against a strong team." "I enjoy the pressure and everything that goes with it. We have a mentality that we will not be beaten on our own pitch." City are aiming to protect an unbeaten home record that stretches back for more than two years.

Roberto Mancini will be without any recognised left backs with Gael Clichy (ankle) and Aleksander Kolarov (groin) both likely to miss the trip to Dortmund. Maicon could fill in at right back, with Pablo Zabaleta switching to the left - or Gareth Barry could switch to his former position. James Milner (hamstring) is out after picking up an injury at Wigan last week, while Jack Rodwell (hamstring) and Micah Richards (knee) are still a while away from a first-team return.

boss Roberto Mancini hopes Yaya & Kolo Toure don't go to "We need to talk more with their manager but it’s difficult”
Match Report: CHELSEA 0 Manchester City 0 26-11-2012 It was a point apiece at the Bridgeas both Chelsea and Manchester City failed to find a breakthrough... Summary Rafael Benitez's reign as Chelsea interim manager saw the Blues and Manchester City play out a goalless draw, only the second occasion this season on which we've failed to score in the league. On reflection, it was probably a fair result, and while Roberto Mancini's side will feel they should have won it, Benitez will be pleased to have seen his men keep a clean sheet for the first time since the 4-0 win against Nordsjaelland at the beginning of last month. Pablo Zabaleta, David Silva and Sergio Aguero all wasted good chances for the away side in the first half, and after the break Ashley Cole cleared one off the line. Our best opportunity fell to Fernando Torres midway throughthe second half, but the striker fired over after a deflection had fallen kindly for him, while Joe Hart saved well to deny Cole. Attention now turns towards a crucial L ...

Africa player of the yeat Nominice: Four Premier League players have been nominated for the FIFA African Footballer ofthe Year award, including John Obi Mikel, Gervinho and Yaya Toure. An original 34-man shortlist has been whittled down to 10, and the English top flight is strongly represented on the list. Former-Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has been nominated for his Premier League and Champions League exploits, and is among thefavourites to scoop the award. The Ivorian frontman scored the equalising goal and the winning penalty as Chelsea won their first ever Champions League trophy lastseason. But the former-Blue faces stiff competition from Arsenal , Newcastle and Manchester City representatives. Last year's winner, Yaya Toure, has a good chance of retaining his crown after helping Manchester City to their first league title in 44years, and their first ever Premier League title. The Ivory Coast midfielder was a dominant force in the middle of the City midfield, and was one of Roberto Mancini's key p ...
Mancini rages at referee ESPN staff November 6, 2012 Roberto Mancini raged at referee Peter Rasmussen after Manchester City had a goal ruled out for offside and were denied a late penalty as their Champions League dream all but died with a 2-2 home draw against Ajax. - Jolly: City cornered - Tyler: Group of Death tightens hold - Curtis: 'Flinterdun' as City lights go out Sergio Aguero had a goal chalked off when the creator Aleksandr Kolarov was ruled offside when he seemed to be level from Edin Dzeko's pass, and Mario Balotelli appeared to have his shirt tugged by Ricardo Van Rhijn late on. City started the game terribly. Siem De Jong was left unchecked at two first- half corners, the Ajax captain able to head home a brace, forcing Yaya Toure and Sergio Aguero to dig deep and score the goals needed to keep City within five points of the qualification spots in Group D.

Roberto Mancini has rated midfielder Yaya Toure as one of the best players in Europe -
Wayne Rooney is the only England star nominated for the Ballon D’Or. But FIFA’s 23-man list was a slap in the face for Chelsea, who do not have one nominee despite their first-ever European Cup triumph. Only Didier Drogba made the list — and he left last summer. Three-time winner Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo also made the cut. Manchester City had Sergio Aguero, Yaya Toure and Mario Balotelli nominated following their title triumph. Rooney’s United team-mate Robin van Persie was listed for his goalscoring exploits with Arsenal before his transfer. Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo is a contender for manager of the year alongside City’s Roberto Mancini and United’s Alex Ferguson. FIFA will reveal the final shortlist for each category on November 29. Read more:

It's Obivious dat Roberto Mancini is not a good coach,Without Yaya Toure dat team will collapse.
Jamie Redknapp said Arsenal's midfield dominance ensured they earned a deserved point at Manchester City. "Alex Song did his best stuff going forward, but Arteta knows his strengths, sits in front of them and just patrols. He snuffs out a lot of danger that teams bring." Jamie Redknapp Pundit felt Arsene Wenger's side were superior for much of Sunday's clash at the Etihad Stadium, but they required a late goal from Laurent Koscielny to earn a 1-1 draw after falling behind to Joleon Lescott's first-half. Match Report Roberto Mancini started with Javi Garcia and Yaya Toure in central midfield, but Redknapp felt they were overpowered by the strength of numbers that Arsenal had in that department. "I felt it was a really interesting match-up tactically, he said. "There were two different formations, but I felt Santi Cazorla for the whole game caused Manchester City so many problems. "Javi Garcia didn't know what to do at times. He didn't know whether to push in and mark one of the other midfield players or go ...
Carlos Tevez's return could be vital for Manchester City believes Yaya Toure. Roberto Mancini had once said that the Argentina international would never play for the Blues again, but it seems all is forgiven! Have you forgiven Tevez? Do you think he's a ticking time bomb, or can he star this season for City? Toure has r...
A five minute blitz before half time was enough to clinch the win for Roberto Mancini's men as first Pablo Zabaleta and then the superb Yaya Toure scored from well-crafted team moves. The result was a little harsh on Arsenal, who despite only playing their second game of pre-season, looked creative and dangerous in attack without an end product and defensive deficiencies ultimately costing them dearly. But City looked solid throughout and should justifiably be installed as favourites to reclaim their Premiership title once the new season kicks off on August 18. Despite the match being a pre-season friendly, both managers named strong starting line ups as they looked to give their senior players a run out ahead of the new season. City had endured a mixed pre-season with a win, draw and loss in their three matches and Mancini made only two changes to the side that swept aside Turkish club Besiktas last Friday, with Stefan Savic and Nir Biton replacing Marcos Lopes and Adam Johnson in the City midfield. *** ...

Football, the beautiful game. Even in football the power is moving East. Congratulations to all at Man City, Sheikh Mansour, Roberto Mancini. Two players, for me, who have lightened up the season: Yaya Toure and Mario Balotelli.
Congratulations Manchester City!

But most of all congratulations to the man who turned it around Roberto Mancini. What a game! What a season! What a team! Neva seen anything lyk dis. Wow!

Losing Premier League crown to Man City on goal difference would be agony, says Young Monday, 07 May 2012 13:08 | Written by skysports.com Ashley Young fears Manchester United's season will end in agony because their failure to score enough goals will allow rivals City to pip them to the title. Roberto Mancini's side are on course to land their first championship since 1968 after Yaya Toure's brace earned an impressive 2-0 win at St James' Park. And although United beat Swansea 2-0 at Old Trafford they need a miracle - a QPR win or draw at the Etihad Stadium - to retain the Barclays Premier League crown. Young is remaining positive, but understands just how tight the margin of defeat will be if United conceded their title. He told MUTV: 'It's disappointing we didn't score more goals as it looked like we could've done but we've still got to have faith QPR can do us a favour. 'It comes down to the last day now and of course it will be disappointing, especially if it goes down to goal difference, and we lose ...
Manchester City are reportedly paying Yaya Toure £220,000-a-week but on recent showings, it isn't nearly enough. The man is like an enormous, turbo-charged chest of drawers, eating up turf like a planet-shaped Combine harvester. His two goals at the Athletic Indirect Stadium Arena pushed the noisy neighbours within spitting distance of their first title in 44 years and towards proof that money can buy you happiness. Toure is so devastating when switched into a more advanced role in the second half of vital matches it's a wonder Roberto Mancini doesn't start him there in the first place. City's oil-rich owners are so vastly wealthy, perhaps instead of signing Robin van Persie or Gareth Bale, they should plough some cash into cloning Yaya, so one can play at either tip of the midfield diamond. His two goals brought the mood at Champions League-chasing Toon doon, much like a fart in a lift would. Fergie had been relying on the usual brilliance of Papiss Cisse, but unfortunately for him, the striker's well o ...

In the derby, which gave City a sliver of an advantage with two games to go, Yaya Toure was probably the man of the match. He started as the deepest midfielder, alongside Gareth Barry, who is to registas what white males are to dancing. But with a one-goal lead in the second half, Roberto Mancini pushed Toure forward into a plunging role with Nigel De Jong entering as a substitute. The Ivorian used his 6-foot-3, 200 pound frame and intimidating physicality to disrupt the passing of midfield tandem of Scholes and Michael Carrick. Within 10 minutes, Sir Alex Ferguson withdrew Scholes for the more direct Antonio Valencia. United didn't put a shot on target. Last season, before Sergio Aguero commanded much of the space between the lines, Toure featured frequently as a plunger, with Barry and De Jong behind. The stodgy, suffocating midfield stabilized the perennially underachieving side. City conceded a league-low 33 goals (tied with Chelsea) and won the FA Cup, with Toure scoring one of his 13 goals in the se ...
Manchester: Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has once again insisted the title race is not “finished”, despite his side’s 2-0 victory over Newcastle United at Sports Direct Arena on Sunday. A second-half double from Yaya Toure ensured the Italian’s side remained top of the Premier League going into the final game of the...
Jamie Redknapp got it spot on in Saturday's Sportsmail when he highlighted Yaya Toure as the 'human train' who could drive City to victory. Redknapp also outlined how Roberto Mancini might play Nigel De Jong.
"Roberto Mancini got the big calls right and perhaps made the most important substitution of the season. Bringing Nigel De Jong on for Samir Nasri was not a defensive substitution because it allowed Yaya Toure to roam free further up the field. "It was the moment that changed the game, Toure scored twice, City won and the title is theirs to lose. Mike Summerbee, who scored here when City last won the title in 1958, was in the crowd with a tear in his eye. It has been a lot wait for City but it is almost over
COMMENT By Oliver PlattIntroducing Nigel De Jong's midfield steel in place of Samir Nasri's attacking craft might have seemed like an oddly defensive substitution for Roberto Mancini to make, given that Manchester City were desperately searching for the first goal of their crucial encounter with Newcastle United. There was a third man involved in this change, however. De Jong's introduction allowed Yaya Toure to advance into a position just behind lone striker Edin Dzeko – a little bit of tink
LONDON (SE) - Manchester City will be looking to keep their title hopes alive when they face Norwich City at Carrow Road on Saturday afternoon. League leaders for much of the season, City trail neighbours Manchester United by five points with five games remaining, but United's 1-0 defeat to Wigan in midweek has kept the title race open. "It is important for us to finish well because this is the best season for Manchester City since we won the championship in 1968," said manager Roberto Mancini after the 4-0 win over West Brom on Wednesday. "This is not mind games, United have fantastic experience and we don't have it! "Our fans believe and we play for them. I will fight and my team will fight everyday but it may be too late. "I think United is a fantastic team and I don't think that they will drop five points." Norwich's impressive return to the top flight continued with a 2-1 win away at Tottenham on Monday, and the Canaries look set to challenge for a league finish as high as seventh. "All the pundits w ...
