Man City’s Vincent Kompany is out of the Carling Cup Semi-Final with Liverpool this week.
The impressive defender was harshly sent-off in the FA Cup game v Man Utd yesterday.
Doesn’t matter, we will take it.
We couldn’t get past him the other week when we lost 3-0 to the Sky-blues, he stopped everything we threw at Man City.
It will still be a tough game at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday night.
By the way, wasn’t it very convenient for Manchester City to be given an ultra-modern, brand new stadium after the Commonwealth games a few years ago?
Liverpool could have done with a new stadium being built by the Government at Stanley Park instead.
Anyhow, with Kompany’s ban we stand a slightly better chance of getting to the Carling Cup Final, lets hope we do it.
Expect Kenny Dalglish to field a strong team on Wednesday against Mancini’s City with Steven Gerrard, Charlie Adam, Glen Johnson and Jordan Henderson all returning to the side.
Shame we drew Man Utd in the FA Cup, 4th round, I knew it would happen, lets get at Scholes, Carrick and their ageing defence.
