How can one man be so bestial and yet so adorable at the same time?

I mean, as much as I'm digging Sakho right now, if he turned up one night in your back garden, you'd very quietly barricade all the doors & windows and just cower under your bed, praying that he went and devoured some other poor family. If it was Kolo, you'd go out there in your dressing gown with a saucer of milk, and give him a little tickle.

Is he some sort of throw back? Not a 'modern footballer' in the slightest.

He came to us for reportedly half the money he was getting at City, and I can't remember the last time I saw a player enjoying himself so much playing for us. Maybe God in his second coming?

Looks like he's a player that needs to be needed and loved, and we're giving it to him in spades.

He also sells cars does our Kolo.  He could get you a good deal on a Ford Capri.

They could have small Kolo's together. I'd like that. I'd raise them as my own, only perhaps with more pride than if they would've been. Mount her like a wild donkey, Kolo.

A FEW KOLO TOURE FACTS

 1. Kolo Toure drove his mum home from the hospital after she gave birth to him.

 2. Rory Delap can throw a ball 50 yards. Kolo Toure can throw Rory Delap 50 yards.

 3. A police officer once pulled over Kolo Toure. The police officer was lucky to leave with just a warning.

 4. If you spell Kolo Toure wrong on Google it doesn't say, "Did you mean Kolo Toure?" It simply replies, "Run while you still have the chance."

 5. Bulletproof vests are made from Kolo Toure's skin.

Kolo: one of the main reasons, along with Mignolet  and Sturridge, why we are top of the league.

For the price, the buy of the summer so far. By a mile.

IF only we could clone him for the other defensive positions.

Not sure whether this belongs in Kelly's thread really but seeing as it's all about Kolo I'll stick it here. Sounds like he's having a really positive effect on the squad. Definitely can't hurt to have winners like him about the place.

Wonder if he fancies a coaching career when he's hung up his boots (basing that on how Kelly says he even 'helps the opposition')?

Edit: added the article as well as linking:

Quote
Martin Kelly has explained how Kolo Toure is fast becoming a key influence in the Liverpool dressing room just months after arriving from Manchester City in the summer.

The veteran defender is already something of a fans' favourite, having endeared himself to the Kop with a string of composed and fearless displays.

Kelly admits the Ivorian has had a similar effect on his teammates at Melwood - and revealed how Toure is so keen to help, he'll even stop to give the opposition tips in practice matches.

"Kolo's a great person," Kelly told Liverpoolfc.com. "He's come in as a big character for the club and helped a lot around the dressing room.

"Whether he's on your team or not in training, he's giving advice to everyone and you like that as a defender. You like feeling as though you're a full team.

"There are big players here who are helping to keep everything together, from the goalkeepers straight through to the strikers. That's been the balance in our team so far this season. It's been brilliant."

Four new defenders arrived at the club during the summer transfer window in the form of Toure, Aly Cissokho, Mamadou Sakho and Tiago Ilori.

Kelly insists that the newcomers have already improved the Reds' back-line - and he's relishing competing with them for a place in the starting XI, following his recovery from an ACL rupture sustained in September 2012.

"I think at a club like Liverpool there's always additions that are going to come in to bolster the squad and make it as strong as possible," said the defender.

"You can see our team now and the way that we're playing is fantastic. We're playing really well as a team defensively as well as in attack.

"When we take the lead, we're holding on and getting the win. That's what's vital for us to progress this season. The additions are great and as a footballer trying to get my place back, it just makes me more determined to get my chance."

In recent weeks, Brendan Rodgers has altered the tactical make-up of the side to include three centre-backs operating alongside wing-backs.

While Kelly had just 23 minutes to adjust to the formation in his first match of the season against Manchester United at Old Trafford, the defender has worked on the new system in training.

He's comfortable with the alterations - and insists he's equally relaxed about where the manager wants him to operate out on the field.

"A player has to adapt," said Kelly. "I don't mind playing at wing-back or full-back. I can play both.

"At a club like Liverpool when you need to change, the players have got to be good enough to adapt and play the way the manager wants them to play.

"The key to our defence being solid has been good defenders who can work with each other, as well as signing a top-class keeper.

"During pre-season we did a lot of training on the physical condition. We knew that we had the ability, we just wanted to get to that physical condition. We got here and that's why we have made such a great start."

Hard to tell. Probably 1 or 2 more injuries - and it wouldn't surprise me if Gerrard is one of them but I hope I'm wrong on that. It could be a case of Rodgers making hay while the sun shines, and working up to that December run of games. Maybe the fitness work tapers off through that and goes to maintenance a little sooner than it did last season. How we get through December I think will have a huge bearing on a number of aspects of the rest of the season.
