Offer Westwood the captaincy.

Recommended Posts

As part of the deal to get Westwood to sign I would offer him the team captain role. It might just clinch the deal.

 

He seams like a big enough character to be effective in the role and has Loads of experience, not scared to hand out a roasting when needed but also seen him put an arm around the shoulder and a pat on the back which can be just as effective.

 

Harsh on Tom Lees, but I do think Toms style is not suited to the role, he also seems to play better when he only has his own game to think about.

I'd offer him a coaching role and a mucky weekend with my wife if he will hurry up and sign a new deal.

You should give the captaincy to player you think is most suited to the role not as part of a sweetner to sign a contract.

Good point, can't really think of anyone better really, maybe if Hector joins he could do the role. Who would you choose Matt ?

Never like captains to be Goalkeepers. Think Barry Bannan would be best.

Can't argue with that, can see the reasoning behind it, was also one who I would consider.

I generally don't like goalkeepers or forwards being captains but other than that KW has all the attributes of a good captain. 

 

Never thought Lees was the right choice. He needs to just get out there and play.

 

Not sure that Bannan is right either.

If I offered him that deal he'd sign for another club without any wages.:Sid:

I don't like goalkeepers as captain.

 

Bannan is too hot and cold to be captain and I don't see him as an arm around the shoulder type. He'd be fine at the shouting at people bit.

 

Lees is a good player but not captain material.

 

Hutch would be ok if he played more games but I get the impression he can be a moody person.

 

Hector would be a good shout if we get him back.

 

Lee might fit the bill if his fitness is ok. He gets all over the pitch, always keeps going but maybe not a big enough personality.

If we are going to change it would be Steven Fletcher for me.

 

Bannan is a mardy git. So too is Westwood apparently, the reason Westwood has fallen out with people easily throughout his career.

It’s important to have the right captain, and I don’t believe there’s a standout captain in the group With that in mind, I’m hoping we bring in a player with those leadership qualities

The captain should always be the tallest player. No exceptions. 

Has to be Big Dave. Would be the missing link in the squad and hopefully lead to him finishing his career with us and taking us up.

Obviously those who had him as captain know more about football than me (well some of them) and they know the bloke and know what he is like around the team.

 

What I see is someone who doesn't seem to be in charge of the defence on the pitch, never mind the rest of the team.

 

Not vocal enough, not  a leader, except by example. IMHO

Maybe that he was just the best of a bad bunch He’s also the most experienced defender, which often qualifies someone for the role Having watched him for a while now, I’m not sure he’s the right man. He’s a good defender, who likes to have a clear role, and to just get on with his job He isn’t a good organiser. Indeed, when he played alongside young Thorniley, it was the inexperienced youngster who took charge
