'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Confirmed: Vincent Kompany Is A Man City Player

Manchester City has a new central defender in Belgium born Vincent Kompany, according to the HSV Hamburg official website.

The 22-year-old is described as one of Europe's premier talents having won several awards in Belgium when he played for Anderlecht, including the 'Belgian Golden Shoe' award.

Manchester City Football Club is expected to announce a press conference before the weekend.

'We wish Vincent all the best for his future,' Dietmar Beiersdorfer, the Hamburg director of football, said.

I notice he only came on for the last ten minutes in the friendly last month.

I'm sure DD could have added several more names, however the poll template only allows 14 possibilities. How about we start our own City worst signings here. I'll start...ex nugget Stuart Pearce!

I hear the figure is around the 6m and he could be in the squad for Saturday's home game against West Ham. Happy days!

6 mill for Sam Harris was a shocker. Out worsened Lee Bradbury, Steve Daley ect by a country mile. What worries me about the new lad is he has played only 28 games for SV across two seasons. He will have to go some to be up to the rigours of the Premier League. Now if Corkuka goes, we want a profit or swap deal for a right winger. We have blooded that lad in The Prem and that is worth something.

well we would definatly have to make a profit out of corluka cause he has turned into a great defender for the premier league. I still dont understand why he didint go for a left back

Maybe he will still go for a LB, dd but whose out there with experience? Remember the rags brining in Evra from the continent and if I recall correctly, SWP slaughtered him and he was withdrawn at HT. Calling the utility man Danny Mills.....Vuoso, of course. Absolutely brutal.
