Kompany: Our Team Is Very Hard To Beat

Kompany: Our Team Is Very Hard To Beat



The Citizens defensive rock Vincent Kompany has moved swiftly to underline the importance of the point City gained at The Emirates on Wednesday night...

He told th'official site:

'I thought we were aggressive at Arsenal, but we were clever as well. Some people might ask 'why didn't they try to win the game?'...But if we don't lose against the top four teams in away games, and we beat the so-called lesser teams at home, you make the calculation...and if the title is within reach, then why not?'

The giant Belgian international went on to tell it like it was because whichever way City's many enemies dress it up, the onus was on Arsenal to beat The Blues and they couldn't:

'I look at the Arsenal game and I see that our team is very hard to beat - and if you are a team that doesn't lose, that's half the job done already. It's another clean sheet, and we'll win more games than we draw if we keep putting those clean sheets on the board. The first fifteen minutes was the hardest. We had to dig in, and it was really hard at times. But the longer the game went on, the more comfortable we became defensively.'

Arsenal fans and the media can crow about how the Gunners outplayed us all night long. The fact is, we came for a point and got one. Who outplayed who?

Hang on, you can play for a point AND still launch a few counter attacks, surely? The fact that you have fielded the most expensive team in Christendom and have precisely ZERO attempts on goal to show for it is what is provoking so much derision. I think Mancini was just terrified of another 3-0 drubbing.

Wyn with better finishing we might of had 1 or 2 ourselfs but they went wide or over so we didnt have one on target we aint the first team and we wont be the last either, ok im sure most city fans me included would of liked us to go with abit more adventure but the fact we were missing 2 of our most creative players seems to have been lost in translation - We did what we had to do and DIDNT get beat which was almost as important as winning, If we get 4 draws at teh top4 clubs then u wont hear city fans moan aslong as we beat the teams we are expected to beat hands down

No I'm genuinely not, I was proud of the lads last night, dicking a multi multi million pound side for 94 mins mercilessly, making them look like an ordinary league 2 outfit or as I read in one of the nationals today dancing like a butterfly around a particularly slow and stupid bear. We were awesome last night, I know it's a results based business but it ain't always everything.

Proud of your teams profligacy? Good for you. I think you'll find Niko that for the first ten mins you ran us ragged but thereafter we contained you quite well. One shot on target inside the box is all you had, the other four were hit and hopers.

Bluedub you put up quite a brave face after a battering. Being used to getting hammered for 35 years makes one tough I suppose.

Battering? There I was thinking it was a scoreless draw I saw last night.

I don't blame city for how they played. Remember how they completely shat themselves at home to the spuds in the champions league decider last year? It's ingrained in Mancini now, he won't come out and play against the top 5 ever again, mind F*'ked by the spuds.
