No matter what anyone says, yaya will always be a club legend to me. He was immense in the big games and it could be argued that he was the reason we started winning stuff by producing the performances and goals when we needed them.

As a person he is an idiot who is easily swayed by that plank of an agent. But as a city player he is a Legend and always will be. Cake or no cake.

Indeed he is a club legend which makes the tantrums more painful to tolerate. Pity

Yaya was arguably the best midfielder in the pl for a couple of seasons and a massive part of us winning silverware. But for me will never be a City legend, Neill Mcnab, Paul lake, Zabba, Merlin, Kompany,Yes!

You cannot be a fuckign cunt to the club off the pitch and still be called a legend.....and then to top it all off (after the club said they are considering calling a training pitch after him ) FUCKING LIE about PeP being racist to African players !!!!??? and you still think hes worthy of fuckign legend status ?

The guy was an absolute beast for us in his prime. Frightened the shite out of United under Mancini. Honestly think they became defeated just seeing his name on the team sheet.
In his latter couple of years though, his name on the sheet had the opposite affect on the opposition.

He really should be but never will be s legend of the club.
Why? Because he dishonoured the club too often. Talked shite because of his inflated ego, not being able to accept he was past it.
So long and thanks for the memories but we’ve moved on.

There is no doubt he would have been Legend status, if he simply kept his mouth shut. Great as he was for us. His mouthing off ruined any chance of people having fond memories of the guy.

With you on this one.

Sad when I think about his last words on us/Pep. When I watched the Amazon documentary bit about him it was hard to take, but what he's done for us also cannot be forgotten.

I understand why Silva will always be the good son to our fans, but Yaya's effectively our prodigal son.

Complicated member, but still part of the family.

See Eden Hazard has made a statement regarding where he potentially sees his future. He says he is torn between signing a new deal at Chelsea and going to Madrid as that’s always been a dream of his. He also says he wouldn’t say he was going to sign a deal then rescind that decision meaning he could then leave on a free when his contract was up.

Assume Madrid have made contact through his representatives so it will be interesting to see what happens in January

Maybe abramovich will make him a little more torn with a few more millions.

I hope he goes, he is the fourth best player in the league after Silva, KDB and Aguero.

Stephen Ireland signs for Bolton. I thought he had retired.

the versatile Nathan Ake allegedly in our sights now - LB/CB/DM
https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football ... y-13449051

So with fellow cloggie Frankie de Jong top of Pep's list, Zaha in for Raza if he doesn't re-sign and Neves coming as back up for Fern, it's looking like two busy windows ahead.

Interesting how the Rabiot saga went silent without him signing with anyone. From there and now comes that info he is signing with Uefalona, but nothing official.

I think Ndombele and Chillwell are almost done deals for us. Don't think anyone else will follow.
