VMC Man of The Match No 50 versus Sunderland

VMC Man of The Match No 50  versus Sunderland



City's 50th competitive fixture and 22nd clean sheet have come to pass with the club's 50th Premier League goal. The MoTM from the demolition of Sunderland is our Vinnie...

We've just about run out of superlatives that describe Vincent Kompany's superhuman performances in this campaign.

City have conceded 27 league goals this season, a figure only Chelsea can beat with 25 and a large part of that defensive shut out has to be down to the imperious Belgian.

25 years old next Sunday, he marshalled and commanded City's huge back line impeccably against The Black Cats and once again, did not put a foot wrong. Even the anti-City brigade hacks in The Street of Shame have begun to talk up Vinnie as the finest Premier League defender this season. The way he is playing you'd be hard pressed to find a better centre back in Europe.

Elsewhere in this week's VMC Forum vote, an excellent all round team effort came in for recognition.

Vincent Kompany is a machine - he is without a doubt one of the finest defenders in Europe at the moment, but clearly won't get the credit he deserves because he doesn't play for one of the "deserving" clubs. He is also a completely class act off the pitch and is one of that rapidly disappearing breed - a true gentleman. I still don't understand why this man is not our captain to be honest.
