Kompany Banned - Rooney? Nobody Does It Better

Kompany Banned - Rooney? Nobody Does It Better

Nobody across Planet Blue was surprised to hear that City captain Vincent Kompany's appeal against a four match ban was rejected by the Football Association...

...yet they have every reason to be livid at the sheer hypocrisy of arch outspoken rags Sir Alex Ferguson and Wayne Rooney. Nevermind the now Europe reknowned pisspoor English scattergun refereeing standard.

They knew full well that for City to lose the man who has helped galvanise his side into league leaders throughout the remainder of a pivotal January would be a major blow.

As it stands, the City squad, who to their credit had nothing to do with their rag counterparts in the tunnel around the Manchester cup derby have other ideas. The intention is to win every single one of the games the skipper will miss by way of a tribute to him, sending the middle finger to Rugney and Taggart's hopes.

Every rag's favourite scouser has been publically vocal over Kompany's ball winning tackle on Nani Jackson from the moment the ball was won to his twatter account.

Rewind to March 2008 and the rags FA Cup exit at home to Portsmouth. The images below speak for themselves, but it's worth reminding English football of Taggart's comments that Portsmouth played dirty after that game, ignoring his striker's charge at Kranjcar: 'Teams aren't allowed to try and beat us, we are Manchester United.'

Rugney: 'it was a clear red card.'

Brilliant tackle...absolutely. I wonder who is on the Appeals Panel & which teams they follow? The refereeing decisions against CITY have been costly this season & their does seem to be something going on here.

And who's that brandishing a yellow card and erring on the side of don't upset Fergie caution? None other than serial card mentalist Martin Atkinson. This season he's racked up 87 yellows and 8 reds in 23 games. Not bad, not bad. ...Webb and Dowd in hot pursuit.

Hi Guys Blackpool fan here and I have to say I was outraged at Kompanys dismissal whilst Rooneys in your face he had teo feet off the goround rant was not yellow carded for Unsporting behaviour. I would like the referee to answer that one and Im a qualified ref! Good luck this year I hope you beat those arrogant gits next door!

JB, can you please remove that image of Rooney from the front page article. It makes me want to crack my laptop off the wall everytime I look at it. Shrek's uglier twin would be an apt replacement.

If kompanys tackle was ared why was no card given (any colour) to Giggs for scything down Aguero from behind? Yes inconsistent indeed. Just another cover up to protect referees, who do get it wrong sometimes but cannot admit it.

Inconsistant yes - but what point is there in bringing up vids of just ROoney flying in with 2 feet - oh I forget - its cos he plays for us.....

Many other worse tackles worse then that lads - and Foy sent Kompany off - not Rooney

Just rewatched that vid you posted - yes he missed the ball, but it was a 1 footed tackle - unlike Kompanys......
