Yaya in his prime redefined what a complete midfielder was. Pace, power, touch, shooting, passing, football intelligence, and just pure domination.
Plus Yaya never dove, got sent off, or fell on his arse when it mattered. Stepped up in big games and has never missed a penalty for us, ever.
Slippy G was very good, but his contribution always had to much flash to it rather than meat. Yaya's contribution to the team was pure meat, with the side benefit that it looked effortlessly elegant.
This makes interesting viewing. Some of the things Ya Ya does, I really don’t believe Gerrard had the brain to even think about doing.
I know I can’t win the argument against their fans, I’m just after some moral support !!https://youtu.be/1vgTUQnklm4
That video sums it up for me. Out of this world.
