BARÇA NOT MISSING YAYA TOURE AT ALL


When Yaya Toure decided to leave Barça last summer, many Cules panicked and even said the Pep Team would be unable to cope without him.

Some fans were arguing that Sergio Busquets didn't have what it takes to become a leader in midfield as he lacked Yaya's undeniable strength and determination.

And what about Javier Mascherano's signing? Most thought it was a mistake to spend 24MILLe in the Argentinian captain as they believed Toure to be irreplaceable - but the truth is he left the club due to lack of playing time and, obviously, a bigger paycheque from football's newest Richy Riches: Manchester City.

The truth is: I didn't miss Yaya at all. Busquets was key to complete the Xavi-Iniesta midfield and Mascherano became so important that he even took Puyol's place in the starting lineup in the Champions League final.

YAYA: THANK YOU FOR THE MEMORIES!!!!

    Right now? No!
    But, way back then? Yes!
    The UCL semi-finals against Inter, at the San-Siro, is a testimony to it!

    Never missed him! he was overrated because he shined with xavi and iniesta. And I mean overrated because EVERYONE thought we were gonna fail without him. He traded trophies for money so I hope hes happy winning the left over crap trophies in the EPL because he's not winning any important tittles any time soon, ESPECIALLY the CL!

    I sure did miss Yaya Toure. Just cuz we got all them talented players who are shining brighter among the others, doesn't mean he was worthless or ineffective compared to the star players at Barça are. He was solid in midfield. He had his contribution to this team. Once a Blaugrana, always a Blaugrana . . . Well maybe not for Ibrahimovic. =)
