Garth Crooks with a rare moment of sanity in his Team of the Week...
I used to hate dressing room bust-ups regardless of how necessary they might have been at the time. Players falling out with each other always troubled me but they are often necessary in order to clear the air and to set the team back on track.
The recent concerns about the Professional Footballers' Association, aired mostly by disgruntled former players, have forced the union to initiate an independent enquiry.
Whatever the outcome of that enquiry, what the PFA needs now, more than at any stage in its history, is a chairman who will unite the players, young and old, once again and I can see no better individual than Vincent Kompany.
Manchester City and Belgium defender Vincent Kompany has won three Premier League titles.
He has proven to be a unifying figure on the field and is admired throughout the game.
What the former Belgian international and PFA delegate at Manchester City plans to do when his playing career finally comes to an end is his own affair but while he is a contracted player, this well-known senior figure owes it to his fellow professionals to bring the players back together again.
Heaven knows it needs a special individual right now to heal the rifts but if anyone can do it, Vincent Kompany can.
