Esteemed Kompany on the 6 players on the bench - right or wrong?

Post by blueboy on Tue Feb 06, 2018 8:02 pm

I saw on Twitter on Saturday...he was apoplectic. Think of my rants....then x them by 50!

I think most could see what he was saying, but he just couldn't take any opposition to his viewpoint.

Anyway...he made this video last night. I thought, and replied, that it was more considered and less of an erratic stance....however, also replied, that I thought his use of the "as you know, I'm a great supporter of the academy", was a little bit of a put-down, for those fans who just thought he was wrong...as if we all don't give a shit about youth players, or don't follow their progress - only he does. You all know me and Dawg post articles on here about youth players and have done for years....but sometimes, I just find that EK can come across all sanctimonious, like he's the only person whoever cares about youth players. 

Anyway...he posted this reply after the weekends Twitter rant....but I read earlier, him posted how he can't believe City fans are against him, and don't have his point of view as he was trying to be impartial. Well, he was trying to be impartial in this video, yet still made certain comments that made City fans disagree with him. 

I've tried to reply my support of his channel....however, he does across all mard-arse if people disagree with his point of view. I disagree with others on here, we all do...but I don't post videos to 16k subscribers and a huge following on Twitter - which many, will be idiots. 

Guess it's social media for you. I did say to him, you could always be @markgoldridge (The United Stand) - the biggest twat on social media, who is a Forrest fan and only created the channel to make money! Proper rags, must fucking despise him, but he has over 160k followers and talks utter shite 99% of the time.

Storm in a teacup blown up out of all proportion by rat boy and other City haters in the media. It was ONE place on the bench in ONE game, no rules were broken, nobody in the EDS has complained, where's the problem? As many have already stated, we have a long list of first team players injured and the under 23's played the night before, it's debatable (as we have seen) whether there is any merit in making a young kid travel to Burnley to warm a bench for 90 minutes in what was always going to be  a difficult, tight game in which they were unlikely to feature. Ignore and move on i say.

I'd had a similar discussion on another social media outlet and the general comment coming from both sides was, "Why not give a kid a chance at sampling the first team atmosphere?"  I thought it was a reasonable argument and left it at that.

But then it occurred to me: Who do you take?  Given the usual suspects were all either injured or just back from south Wales, you're basically looking at the 17 and 18 year olds in the younger teams, none of whom are the finished article and with no guarantees they ever will be. So, do you have a tombola style draw to see who wins the coveted seat?  Or do you choose one who looks like they might get there and run the risk of them becoming Billy Big Bollocks, thinking they've made it, asking for more money, pissing everyone off, just to fuck them off to some other club, where they'll no doubt do the same until eventually they're playing for West Brom?

So I've gone back to my original stance: We didn't need to fill the seat, so why bother doing so just for the sake of it? It's not like the player occupying it would've had even the remotest chance of getting on the pitch, never mind affecting the end result.

No...they were in Swansea Friday night and in Manchester at the academy for a warm-down on Saturday morning - 11:00.
