Upson will only ever be decent to good. But Toure will be great. Upson does the basic things well but Toure can do things which change matches. And Upson wasn't young anymore either when we got rid of him you have to remember.
kNiteMare - remember Upson wasn't just here for two seasons, he was with us for 5 years! I have no problem with Upson, its just he wasn't good enough. Skill wise he was ok, but he didn't have the bottle to succeed at Highbury, the self belief even. He wasn't a strong enough character last season to fight with Keown and Cygan for the spot alongside Sol.
It's true that he had a lot of injury problems at Highbury and things might have been different otherwise, but thats football!
