Man City’s Yaya Toure sets himself up for a massive fall

There are moments in life when the sheer absurdity of it all just smacks you in the mush – Nick Clegg as Deputy Prime Minister! ROBBIE BACK IN TAKE THAT! A DYSON AIRBLADE!
The Spoiler had one of those moments this morning when it saw some quotes from Manchester City’s most attacking central midfielder, Yaya Toure…
“At the moment you cannot compare Barcelona with City because Barça are at the top and have top-quality players. Messi, Xavi, Iniesta, Dani Alves; they are fantastic. But City are still signing new players.
“In a couple of years we could maybe be better than Barcelona. But what we need to continue to do is work hard and try to continue to improve with every game.”
It’s easy to laugh, but if you take a moment to think about it – really, really think about it – the sheer mentalness of it overwhelms any grand ambitions on Toure’s part.
A MANCHESTER CITY player reckons they could be better than BARCELONA. A couple of years ago this would have been said as a laugh by Shaun Goater after he finished off a nice little move between Danny Tiatto and Steve Howey, but now it COULD actually happen. It probably won’t. But it could.
It’s pretty good though, innit? It’s great that a team like City can now have ambitions like that. Isn’t it? Or is it dreadful that someone with money can come in and make such a difference? Oh, we don’t know… It is crazy though.
