Country of birth[edit]

Shouldn't it be written as Ivory Coast? After all, we don't write José Bloggs (born in Barcelona, Espana). - Dudesleeper · Talk 00:28, 17 May 2007 (UTC)

Removal of Sentance[edit]

The last line in the first paragraph it seems is opionionated. It reads

Kolo supported West Bromwich Albion as a child, his favourite player is Matthew Kiteley, and he hates the albion fan lee richards

There's no citing to him ' hating Lee Richards ' and the sort of player and person he is, being a devoute muslim, I doubt he will openly express such hatred. Either this is some sort of vandilism, or completly untrue.

I suggest removing the line in regards to lee richards. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 155.136.80.173 (talk) 08:38, 17 October 2007 (UTC)

International goals[edit]

Should be added his second goal for Ivory Coast National team, the template shows just one. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.97.102.198 (talk) 00:38, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Which is his second goal? I cant find it... Luka666 04:43, 19 June 2009 (GMT+1)


Name[edit]

On official ivory coast site his name is written as Kolo Abib Toure. For or against? Luka666 04:43, 19 June 2009 (GMT+1)

You've got a point there. I remember when he first signed for Arsenal he used that as his full name. Twsf (talk) 15:59, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Please note that the link "official ivory coast site" comes back as an attack site, according to AVG —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.156.49.170 (talk) 10:02, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

Man City Transfer[edit]

Please DO NOT change anything until the transfer has been confirmed by both parties. Twsf (talk) 16:00, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Kolo Toure and malaria[edit]

The Racing Post Aug 30th 2009, p.111, offers the opinion:

"Kolo Toure, who used to be among the best centre-halves in the Premier League, hasn't been anything like the same player since contracting malaria at the African Nations Cup in 2008."

I have no way of knowing if this is based on truth or is just speculation, but it would be interesting if there was a post from someone better-qualified.81.156.49.170 (talk) 11:18, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

Positive Drugs Tests[edit]

With so much news about him failing the drug test, I am very surprised that there is nothing about it here. This can be confirmed at: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/football/teams/manchester-city/8360368/Kolo-Toures-positive-drugs-test-leaves-Manchester-City-captain-facing-fight-to-prove-his-innocence.html 175.138.251.156 (talk) 11:06, 4 March 2011 (UTC)
