Thread: Vincent Kompany

  1. #1

    Vincent Kompany

    Close to joining Bayern Munich apparently, Craig Bellamy would be going with him as well, if it happens. Looks like a great opportunity for our would be prodigal son.

    The other site is stating that Burnley want Bellers to remain there as Manager if Kompany leaves.

    I like him he is brilliant as a pundit seems to have great knowledge, understanding and attitude, I'm not sure Management is his best option, I think he'd be happier as a top number two, not everyone is cut out for Management.

    This whole thing amazes me. Burnley were dreadful this season. Worse than Luton. Feeble and very tactically naive. And yet Bayern apparently want Kompany and people are still singing Bellamy's praises?

    It's a funny old game...

    Agreed, what has he done as a Manager?

    The biggest team in Germany want the biggest or almost flop in the Premier League?

    If he does lose Bellamy, that could weaken him further, as they seem a tight team.

    Man Utd appointed Solskjaer after a glittering career with us.

    so Sean Dyche gets Burnley into Europe and ends up at Everton, while Kompany gets them relegated and is wanted by Bayern Munich?

    Kieran McKenna has done well, but first Brighton now Chelsea, has he been tested with top-level players?

    Re: Vincent Kompany

    Bayern Munich, the biggest and most successful team in Germany want a bloke that just got a team relegated from the PL after one season to be their new manager? WTF?

    Re: Vincent Kompany

    I don't think it's that strange. The Bayern hierarchy want their team to play a certain way, and Kompany is a manager that fits that mold. They've obviously realised that it could work for them as they have the players to play that way, unlike Burnley.

    Of course, you could argue Kompany should have realised that and been more pragmatic, but philosophy and ideals are obviously more prominent in the modern game. If he ends up at Bayern, he'll have been proved right.

    Bear in mind, too, that Bayern have already been turned down by their first three choices, and they only hire German-speaking managers. That limits their pool somewhat.

    I'd forgotten that he was at Hamburg.

    Re: Vincent Kompany

    I just saw Bellers in Tesco. If Walesonline or other websites want to knock this into idle, fictitious speculation then please feel free. I didn't speak to him which means he didn't deny he was about to take up the reins at City after the board withdraw Bulut's contract offer sometime before Christmas.

    Re Burnley….as the saying goes…’you can’t make chicken soup from chicken shit’.
    I think Pep would have struggled to keep them in the premiership this season……imo.

    Thatís assuming Pep would have signed the players Kompany signed. Which is doubtful.

    Perhaps Bulut has had conversations there and that has been the delay. A return home may be on his mind.

    Yeah, I wouldn't write him off until I saw how he did with a better group of players.

    Was going to say something similar. Ironically thereís now quite a lot of anger at Burnley that he wasnít more pragmatic last year, spent a bunch of money on young players and got them relegated, and now it looks like heís done it as some sort of year long job interview in which he falls into one of the biggest jobs in world football.

    I don't think a player of his stature was planning to spend the rest of his life at a club like Burnley. He got them promoted, and now they're coming back down again like most newly promoted teams do.

    Using this logic should every lower level manager have a crack at a top four club?

    Maybe managers should start off at the top and work their way down instead

    It's said about players as well. I'm ****ed if i get the logic. I'm an average every day plasterer, by the logic used i should be carrying out ceiling repairs on the Sistine Chapel. (I don't think)
