Re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread - Where attempted murder happens

to be fair neville never had injuries similar to what johnson has had when he was just a kid. it would be much easier to get your head turned when you're not doing what you love consistently. what you've quoted is correct in general, but from what i've read johnson's only gone 'off the rails' when he started regularly missing football.

and that's the only thing i'll say in his defence. i can't imagine how hard it would've been for a kid to go through the injuries he's had. it's just annoying to see it happen.

Re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread - Where attempted murder happens

So, he wasn't even training with City but still picking up his ridiculous wages? How does that work? Surely he was in breach of his contract so they could cut him loose? He looks like a rugby player in 2013.

This screams out to me as poor man management of a young lad who suffered the highest football can offer and the lowest it could offer. People talking about his injuries causing this are probably right, but it shouldn't have happened. There have been young players before who have suffered with terrible injuries and came back from them for better or worse and never to the extreme of Johnson. Just as examples, Johnson left Everton as a kid and blasted through City then suffered a couple of bad injuries and this is him half a decade later, compared to Ross Barkley who broke his leg when he was younger than Johnson with his injuries and I believe is being managed and helped back to complete fitness in the right way. Just looking at an extreme example, Jack Rodwell has suffered some pretty bad injuries in his youth as well as when he became a first team regular at Everton, and it's crazy to think that this could be him in 3 years time.

I just can't shake the thought that Johnson wasn't given the right management at the time all of this began, which he should have given his prospects.

Anybody know where he's been the last year? I've read he'd gone on loan to Leicester in 2011 but came back injured in January 2012. What happened since then? Did City lose interest in him and just let him sit out his contract until that picture came out and were forced to take action, or what? Surely a team of Manchester City's standing in 2013 have the responsibility and powers necessary to take someone like this by the scruff of the neck and help them gain motivation and positivity again? From what I'm reading the lad has hit rock bottom, but was still a City player until recently. Is that right?

All of this may just be a bad picture of a bad situation, he always seemed like a lad who likes the big time but the picture could be a bad one and everything else an exaggeration but interesting to see how he ended up there.

Wow. Never thought I'd ever see an international being played at the Bridge. Obviously done to get Neymar used to his future home

You can make a player a better athlete and develop his technical skills but you can do nothing about his mental strength. He just didn't want it badly enough.

holy shit

kompany's card overturned according to ian ladyman

im in shock

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/foo...verturned.html

Quote:
Vincent Kompany has won his appeal against the sending off at Arsenal on Sunday.

The red card has been rescinded by the Football Association.

An official statement read: “An Independent Regulatory Commission has today upheld a claim of wrongful dismissal regarding Manchester City’s Vincent Kompany.

“The player was dismissed for serious foul play during his side’s match against Arsenal on Sunday 13 January 2013.

“As a result, Kompany’s three-match suspension has been withdrawn with immediate effect.”

The City skipper was dismissed in the 77th minute of the 2-0 win over Arsenal for a tackle on Jack Wilshere.

The appeal victory means the defender will be available for the Blues’ league match against Fulham on Saturday.
suck ittttt

It was always going to be overturned, it was never a red. Just like Huddlestones earlier in the season.

The linesmen who made the £62 comment has been replaced in his FA cup match. Hope he isn't being internally punished.

Seems like Johnson's family and friends give zero fucks aswell since he was still making money off city, surely a family member or a mate would give him a kick up the ass.

'Kin hell, you'd get more freedom to speak your mind in communism than you would with this FA. He expressed it in a perfectly civil manner without slandering Arsenal or any player, it was an off hand comment that was only picked up because of the cameraman, and he's now replaced for an upcoming game. Bloke's done nothing wrong and is somehow being punished because he'd dare make out that paying £62 deserves some much needed recognition.
