King Kompany leads City to glory

Vincent Kompany

Cometh the hour, cometh the man.

Now deep into his 11th year at Manchester City and with over 33 years spent on this earth, Vincent Kompany is still able to defy the odds when they are stacked against him.

With 70 minutes on the clock and Leicester City proving to be well-organised and almost a match for the defending league champions, the home team needed some magic.

They needed an inspirational captain to step up and take charge. Kompany didn’t disappoint. City’s number 4 released an unstoppable drive from all of 30 yards. It flew past Kasper Schmeichel’s outstretched arms and into the top corner. Continue reading

Huesca relegated as Valencia continue push for Champions League qualification

Valencia

Valencia turned on the style to hit Huesca for six, confirming relegation for the bottom-of-the-league side in the process.

Marcelino’s team bounced back from their 3-1 Europa League semi-final first leg defeat at Arsenal in the best possible way.

It took just two minutes for the away side to take the lead. Daniel Wass was allowed far too much space on the edge of the box before putting his shot past Roberto Santamaria in the Huesca goal.

In the 16th minute, Rodrigo raced onto Santa Mina’s pass to round the ‘keeper and roll the ball in to make it 2-0 to Valencia. Continue reading

Leicester and Rodgers to push for Premier League top six next season?

Leicester City

As a club, Leicester City has had more anguish to deal with this season than most.

Back in late October, the club’s 60-year-old Thai owner, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, along with four others, including the pilot, died when his helicopter crashed to the ground shortly after takeoff from the King Power Stadium.

Srivaddhanaprabha had just watched his team draw 1-1 at home to West Ham United before then attempting to make his usual helicopter trip back to his home in London.

A grey cloud covered the club over the following weeks with the playing staff all attending their previous owner’s funeral in Bangkok. Continue reading
