A Captain won't turn this shower into a decent team.

 

Too far gone.

We desperately need some leadership, both on the pitch and the boardroom.

First couple of months of the season he looked like he would be an ideal choice. He has been caught out badly for pace in some recent games and doesn't look like a guaranteed starter so difficult to give a relatively new player the captaincy on that basis. 

Right back is a big problem as Moses has looked dodgy and is out of favour, Palmer has looked better at left-back when fit and Iorfa would prefer to play at CB. Monk needs to nail down his defensive line up before considering a change of captain, even though Lees and Bannan aren't effective in the captain role. 

 

The lack of real leadership is evident when things are going against us. Difficult to blame Lees too much for that when he has accepted the role reluctantly rather than wanting it outright.

There are many new things we need. 

 

  • New captain - Borner gets my vote
  • New work ethic/determination - They are soft, get bullied, dont defend themselves or team mates
  • New central midfield - teams walk through us.  
  • New Strike force

Fairly content with our strength of defence / wide player

Glen Loovens was a proper captain, on and off the pitch, before age sadly caught up with him.

All they do they is check a coin and clap their hands in the general direction of a team mate.

 

Not much wiggle room for master tactician or an inspirational team talk.

Scarily, he seems to be the only one with the right temperament, but would the other players follow him and would the refs understand him?

 Blimey, so our amazing captains of the past were just throw checkers and clappers?

 

Sorry mate, but if you have ever played, or watched football, surely you would know the importance of having a strong leader on the pitch?

The supply of "proper captains" has definitely reduced over the past 10 years. There aren't many being churned out anymore. I look at the premier league for example, Man City/Chelsea/Man Utd/Spurs/Arsenal/Everton in my opinion have weak captains.

 

Obviously us folk do not see player attitudes behind closed doors, but id hazard a guess I would find it difficult to pick someone over Tom Lees.

 

You need a leader, who can be just that in all areas of the club. On the pitch, in the dressing room, in the community, at training. Sadly for me, Lees doesn't do the first.

Indeed, and not just from the Captain either.

Yes. I think we could do with a few captain type players in our starting line up. Real leaders that don’t take any crap.

No we just need 'proper' players who are half bothered to play for us.

Think we also need a style of play and an identity. Hopefully after a summer clear out we can maybe get some players in to suit a style and then play that way. 

Right now, we a mashup of a long ball team and a counter attacking team, except we cant actually play either very well with the players we have available. Who plays long ball with just Sam Winnall up top? Who plays Counter attacking football without pace? 

Some proper bang average teams have rolled us over this year and last, all because they had a game plan and players picked specifically to play it and the way they are wanted to play drilled into them.
