'Ducking' Anita Hasn't Bottle For Defensive Wall

Last updated : 22 August 2013 By Footy Mad - Editor

Toure, who claims to have been practicing his free-kicks for four seasons now, was important to the City side that demolished the Magpies on Monday in a 4-0 rout.

fThe shot was far from perfect, and Anita had it on his head ... but he ducked ... letting the ball fly past Tim Krul!

Sir Bobby Robson had a plan when he was at St James' Park and said in 2001: "You just put players in the wall who are up to it. Some aren't.

"It's the same with penalties, some have the bottle to take them, some don't.

"In a wall you are ten yards from the ball and you know it's going to fly in your direction.

"You want players like Steve Bruce, who are brave and don't mind putting their face in the way.

"So it's not best to put the pretty players in there."

Yaya Toure: “I have been practising my free-kicks for four years now!

"But I think I got lucky on this occasion.

“I hope I can continue to score important goals for the team and I think this year is going to be a good one for us.

“I think we played very well against Newcastle.

"The first half was quite hard, but I think we pushed on and put in a good performance.

"We fully deserved the 4-0 win on the night."
