Vincent Kompany For Captain?

Vincent Kompany For Captain?

Google language translator


In recent weeks City skipper Richard Dunne's form has gone into meltdown, and then having received a red card against Tottenham on Sunday, should he step down as Captain.

Vital Manchester City registered users had the opportunity of choosing a player they prefered should Dunne either step down or be replaced.

Several names were in the hat including Shaun Wright-Phillips, Stephen Ireland and of course, Vincent Kompany.

Although the poll is still active, the Belgium centre back is way ahead in votes.

Here is what forum users had to say.

Johnny Baguette
'In all seriousness, for me, Wrighty leads by absolute example and is obviously passionate for the club. I was a big critic over his departure for Chelsea, but his efforts since coming back have gone a long way towards proving he was pushed into being sold to balance the books.I say give SWP the armband.'

'Stephen Ireland - passionate for the club, work rate is top, most outstanding and consistent player this season, lifts the team.'

dunne deal
'I am sticking with dunne he is there the longest understands the club inside out and has just been have a few bad games…..I have always been a true and true Ritchie fan and will stick by him all the way he is still in my books one of the best defenders out there.'

ArabianKnight
'Also voted for robinho although SI was a close second.. I felt he didn't have the experience to be a captain .. perhaps in time. Kompany is also a good choice but also lack the experience. on the field SWP looks too quiet and let his performance do the talking ... but sometimes you need a player to give a quick word of advice to the younger players..and marshall its troops.. I have notice SI and robinho doing this as time. I feel either of them would make decent captains.'

mcfcthriller
'Only a few bad games? lol... Dunne has always been clumsy and a bit slow on the brain department, he must have a record of the most scorer of own goals a defender has scored ever!'

'He may have been the longest at the club, but have we won anything since?'

'You can't have a clumsy defender and certainly not as a captain because that clumsiness will spread on the team, plus over this season he has gone worse, plus he`s not getting any younger or faster... Think its time to move on!'


Old Mother Hell
'If Robinho's command of the Mancunian dialect was ace, he would a made an excellent captain. Notice when he runs around giving signs and pointing out the play and yaps with the ref? Here is a guy who's definitely mouthy and dares to be in charge. I'd polish his English for two bob and a pint of bitter.'

lincolnblue
'For now I would give it to Kompany...he is at the moment the best man for the job...I don't think it would be right to give it to SWP...it would affect his game to much...it would take away his concentration on what he should and is doing every game...and its too soon yet for Stevie Ireland...maybe next year or the year after...and that will depend on who else is brought into the side.'

oliverblue
'For me, Dunney to stay on this season. Longer term, Vincent Kompany looks a natural leader, so I wouldn't be surprised if the honour was passed onto him.'

alphieblues
'Definitely Kompany, but no doubt Sparky will give it to Micah'

bluescot
'My preference is for Kompany, as I prefer a defender or midfielder to be captain.'

Richards will probably get the nod, but VK would do an excellent job!

This debate is a waste of space. The Captain's armband is to be given by Hughesy. Seriously, this is not up for debate by Chelski fans or even you insidious Barnsley red fans... Merlin is just being impious again
