Soccer Report Extra Podcast: Episode 71 – He’s A Real ‘Kompany’ Man!

Written by on May 1, 2012 | 4 Comments »
Posted in General, Soccer Report Extra Podcast

It was not the title decider everyone was expecting, and it certainly wasn’t the most riveting Manchester derby ever witnessed, but Monday’s result at the Etihad Stadium sent Sky-blue hearts soaring.  Bobby & Eoin discuss what City got right, what United got wrong, and if this result really signifies a shift in power in the Premier League.  Also, the immanent appointment of Roy Hodgson as England manager has Bobby saying ‘right man, wrong timing’, while Eoin figures poor Roy is merely being fed to the (senior) lions.

    Eoin – are you saying the England players are really just mean girls like those in the movie of the same name? Let me tell you that the picture of that will make me laugh through this entire work day. I thank you and actually think that assessment is spot on.

    I am convinced that at this point in his career Woy is “Loy Vaught”. Vaught put up monster numbers for the Clippers – averaging tons of points and rebounds and was one of the NBA’s best power forwards. He put up huge numbers for the woefully inept Clippers who would win 25-30 games every NBA season (Out of 82). Vaught left the Clippers to sign a massive Free Agent deal with the Pistons (when they were good – not like now) and he was miserable – failing to put up big numbers in points or rebounds for a good club.

    Woy appears to be the same. Was solid at Fulham and West Brom but sandwiched between the 2 was a miserable run at Liverpool (although the more Dalglish sticks around the better Woy’s ‘Pool run is in hindsight) where expectations were much higher. I fear Woy might be getting himself into the same situation here as he was at ‘Pool where expectations can’t be met while at Fulham and West Brom they were not only met – but exceeded

    The question of who is English manager must be one of the most irrelevant in football. Name one manager in recent history whose reputation has been enhanced by taking the English job? Name one manager whose reign hasn’t come to an ignominious end with dreams and hopes crushed on all sides? Maybe Sir Bobby Robson partially. The English post is a managerial graveyard. Given his age and experience at least Hodgson can sail off into the sunset with few regrets when the inevitable disastrous conclusion occurs.

  4. Carlos Gallon says:

    Could it be possible that Hodgson was brought just to take hit for the Terry/Ferdinand situation and all the other loose ends that the England team are facing? Because come on; the media doesn’t have much hope for him, and the FA ins’t presenting him like he’s the answer.
