Manchester City are into the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time in their history thanks to a 3-1 aggregate victory over Dynamo Kiev, but it came at a heavy cost as they lost Vincent Kompany to yet another injury. Man City 0-0 Dynamo Kiev Read our match report as City booked their place in the Champions League quarter-finals. Less than five minutes had passed at the Etihad Stadium when the City skipper pulled up and immediately gestured to the bench before trudging down the tunnel to be replaced by Eliaquim Mangala.Manuel Pellegrini confirmed Kompany will miss at least a month with a recurrence of the calf problem that has troubled him throughout the season. It rules him out of a string of crucial games for City, starting with their Super Sunday showdown against Manchester United, live on Sky Sports. Citys defensive problems were compounded as Nicolas Otamendi was also forced off later in the first half, but it is the loss of Kompany that will cause the most concern as they enter the final two months of the season. The Belgian has been sidelined for 27 of Citys 46 games in all competitions this season due to persistent calf problems, and he has been sorely missed, with the likes of Mangala and Martin Demichelis struggling in his absence. Man City with and without Vincent Kompany starting - PL 2015/16 With Kompany Premier League 2015/16 Without Kompany 13 Games 16 8 Wins 7 3 Draws 3 2 Losses 6 61.54% Win % 43.75% 6 Goals conceded 25 194 Mins per goal conceded 65 9 Clean sheets 4 Statistics highlight his importance to the side. Citys Premier League win percentage with Kompany starting this season is 61.54 per cent compared to 43.75 per cent without him, and their defensive record is also far better with the Belgian starting.City have kept nine clean sheets in the 13 games he has started and just four in 16 he has missed, and they have averaged just 0.46 goals conceded with him compared 1.56 without him. Vincent Kompany has been troubled by a calf problem throughout the campaign It all adds up to a major headache for Pellegrini. Mangala and Demichelis didnt have too many problems dealing with the minimal threat of Dynamo Kiev, but there are far tougher games ahead, and the City boss will be all too aware of the potential repercussions of losing Kompany.Citys Premier League title hopes are already hanging by a thread, and a failure to win Sundays Manchester derby could leave them sweating on a top-four finish. Without their leader, the challenges ahead look considerably harder.

Its ironic that two of the oldest and most iconic teams have been taken to the Fall Classic by two men who are there for the first time in their careers and both of whom are relatively light in Major League managerial experience. St. Louis Cardinals skipper Mike Matheny is in his second year with St. Louis after succeeding Tony LaRussa after the Cardinals won the 2011 World Series. This was Mathenys first managerial job, period. John Farrell managed the Toronto Blue Jays for two years before getting "traded" to the Boston Red Sox this past off-season and this is only his third year managing in the Bigs. Only four rookie managers have ever won a World Series, while six more won in their first full-season at the helm of a team. The last rookie to turn the trick was former Blue Jays catcher Bob Brenly in 2001 when the Arizona Diamondbacks won their first and only World Series in that classic match-up with the New York Yankees. The other are "the Major," Ralph Houk, who led the 1961 Yankees to a Series win over the Cincinatti Reds, Eddie Dyer, who was at the helm of the 1946 Cardinals when they beat the Red Sox in seven games and Bucky Harris, who lead the 1924 Washington Senators to their one and only World Series title. Harris was only 27-years-old when he took over as player manager that season and won two more pennants over his 29 years as an MLB skipper and led the Yankees to a title in 1947. Of those four, Harris was the only one to make it into the Hall of Fame at Cooperstown. The group of six who won in their first full season as a skipper includes four Hall of Famers and one that in my mind should be. In 1920, Tris Speaker led the Cleveland Indians to their first World Series crown as a player-manager. Rogers Hornsby did the same for St. Louis in 1926, also as a player-manager. Legendary slugger Bill Terry, the last National Leaguer to hit .400, won as a player-manager with the New York Giants. Frankie Frisch also won as a player-manager with Stt.dddddddddddd Louis in 1934. These four men refute the old argument that great players have a tough time becoming coaches or managers. The other two on that list are Dallas Green of the 1980 Phillies, who was really more regarded over the years as a general manager. The final name is that of Tom Kelly, who won two World Series with the Twins in 1987 and 1991. Why he isnt in the Hall of Fame is beyond me. This is the fourth meeting between the Cardinals and Red Sox in the World Series. In 1946 and again in 1967 (the Red Sox Impossible Dream Season,) St. Louis won in 7. But all of that was erased from memory by Red Sox fans when the BoSox ended their 86 year-long World Series drought by sweeping the Cardinals in 2004. This is the Cardinals fourth World Series appearance in 10 seasons (they own a 2-1 record in the previous three) and the Red Soxs third in the same decade (they won their previous two.) So essentially, this is for the bragging rights for best team since the start of the new millennium. Bob Elliot of the Toronto Sun has word that the Blue Jays are on the lookout for a catching upgrade are aiming for either Chris Iannetta or Hank Conger of the Los Angeles Angels in a trade. Clearly, since theyre not going to get into a bidding war for the likes of free agent-to-be Brian McCann, it shouldnt be any surprise that the Blue Jays would go back to the Mike Scioscia school of Catcher-nomics. Over the past six or seven years, the Blue Jays have employed, or at least briefly owned, four other Angels catchers who learned at the knee of Scoscia. Benji and Jose Molina were with the Angels when they beat the Giants in the 2002 World Series. Mike Napoli was acquired in the Vernon Wells trade and then was swapped four days later to the Texas Rangers for reliever Frank Francisco and cash and Jeff Mathis, who the Jays traded to Miami as part of that massive trade with the Marlins. Iannetta and Conger wouldnt hit for any more power than J.P Arencibia, but both are considered superior defensively. ' ' '
