Kompany questions City fans punishment

Manuel Pellegrini may have been unhappy at the temperatures in Moscow but it was Vincent Kompany who took some of the headlines the morning after City's 2-2 draw with CSKA when he publicly questioned why City fans had not been permitted inside the stadium. "Why the hell do we not have any fans here? What have our fans done wrong? There's no fairness in it. "You say no fans, all of a sudden you turn up and the team who has no fans is Man City. So who's getting punished? Who's being done for racism, Man City or Moscow? "It needs to be looked at, it needs to be changed. Our fans shouldn't...

Vincent Kompany had a point - but can a home crowd still make a difference? | Paul Wilson

Manchester Citys captain was right to complain about events in Moscow, even if Real Madrids players will have it much worse in front of a raucous Anfield crowd on Wednesday nightVincent Kompany would seem to have a perfectly valid complaint about the crowd situation when Manchester City met CSKA Moscow in the Champions League. Whether the unusual atmosphere excused another below-par performance from City is another matter it probably did not, though Kompany was not trying to make excuses but there are clearly issues here that Uefa need to have a look at.First off, if playing behind closed...

CSKA Moscow 2-2 Manchester City | Champions League match report

The 86th-minute penalty from Bebras Natcho that earned CSKA Moscow a point has left Manchester Citys Champions League hopes in the balance and Manuel Pellegrinis side were left hoping that Bayern Munich would defeat Roma later on to leave the Italians on four points, only two ahead of City and their destiny still in their own hands.Even then Vincent Kompany and his team will face the toughest of challenges if they are to somehow progress to the knockout stage. At the close Kompany led a group of players who complained to Istvan Vad, the referee. This was presumably about the dubious spot-kick...

Five Thoughts: Hull City 2-4 Manchester City

Mangala's Mangling Hampers Best Effort of the Season Part the First: Our Best Effort My first viewing of the match tested nerves and blood pressure both. My second viewing confirmed what Pellegrini, Kompany and a host of Citizens said afterward-City played extremely well and only bad luck cost them a cakewalk. City only had two subpar performances-Mangala (more on him in a moment) and Gael Glichy who got burned a few times too many for someone who's supposed to be one of our best man-on-man defenders. Outside of those two, everyone played well for the most part. This match would absolutely...
