An absolute one-off. Monster of a player whose huge contributions to the club’s ‘rise’ as a major player in the game can never be minimised.

Some are saying that Lallana's recent tears have nothing to do with current events, but are still lingering from when he sized up Toure and got gripped like the b1tch he is.

I posted this link already elsewhere but should have put it here. Sums things up quite nicely from my point of view:

I think the mention in here of the loss of his brother is important: I've long wondered if this affected Yaya far more deeply than most people realise. People like to call Yaya names and there is no doubting he is a temperamental character but that just makes it more likely in my view that mentally he was very much impacted by his bereavement.
Marvellous article.
