Probably the laziest player in the team, but can flip the magic switch at times. Never considered industrious but blimey, he's only 32. Try harder Yaya. You used to be our best player not long ago.

Anyone else concerned he seems to be going off every game now. Use to always play 90 minutes. I understand pellegrini managing him better, but it doesn't really seem to be having an effect.

how do you define laziness? the man in 45 minutes this past game had 11 less touches than say Fernandhino or De Bruyne... overall in any game he plays he gets more touches and passes than anyone else on the team or is very close to leading... he scores, he assists for goals and he actually tackles when it is needed; needed being the key word; sometime the midfield only needs to shield and slow down the opposition for the rest of team to get back in position... do you expect a 6'2" man to run around the field like Milner or many other players that run all day to little effect... the man is languid, elegant, and makes the game look easy (and the two years prior, has played more games than anyone else on the team for club and country)... that is not laziness, it's called talent... his game is closer to many greats: Socrates, Platini, Pirlo, Riquelme... no one called those players lazy because they weren't 6'2", African, and muscular...

Toure steps up big when you need him. Honestly, if anyone's earned the benefit of the doubt, its him.
