Straight Talking Kompany Taking No Kash Krap

Straight Talking Kompany Taking No Kash Krap



Leader of men and City defensive kingpin Vincent Kompany has spoken out against critics of the Manchester club...

More and more Blues believe that the classy Kompany should be City's skipper. Not only does he lead by example on the park, but also off it:

'Money plays an important part in any team's success and United and Chelsea - even Blackburn back in the day - only won the league because they spent a lot of money. But money can't help you once you go on to the training ground or into a stadium.'

Rarely, if ever, does Vinnie talk about himself which in itself is a rarity in this era of spoilt brat millionaire players droaning on about themselves rather than the cause of the club they play for:

'We just want to be the best we can, individually and collectively, because if you aren't a team then you will never win anything. There is a real soul about this club, a great work ethic, and if people want us to fail, so what?

'For me, City are a bigger club than Chelsea and Blackburn so I can't see why we shouldn't be successful. We want to be the best we can and once we start winning trophies, this obsession people have with the money we earn will stop.'


Kompany's determination remains clear:

'We will achieve, we will win things - that much should be obvious to everyone.'

Bluesbrother - Pre Abramovich there would have been very little to choose between City and Chelsea in terms of size of club. Kompany's part of a dying breed in football that actually talks some sense.

In response to bluedub - all that money has gone to your head sweetheart! Before Mr RA took control, we had reached the Champions League promise lands with an end-of-season, last-minute goal by Jesper Gronkjaer - which sealed us a beautiful fourth place in the Prem. Now how far are you from the Champions League? And tell me, when was the last time you won a major trophy? I will give you a clue - it was more than 30-years-ago!

did you forget that man city have spent a duration of their last 20 years in the championship?? while chelsea were in the top 6 (something man city has only just recently started to achieve due only to money) long before abramovich and securing their spot as a big english/european team. winning plenty of trophies in the 90s. so really i think you bluedub need to be tested as well as any one else that agrees with kompany

Thanks BB, I didn't realise that Wikipedia existed or that the example you give is how you measure the size of a club, I'll make myself stand in the corner of a dark room for a few hours until I realise how silly I was.
