Team Captain 12:07 - Oct 7 with 1412 viewsOldjack

The team captain of an association football team, sometimes known as the skipper, is a team member chosen to be the on-pitch leader of the team: it is often one of the older/or more experienced members of the squad, or a player that can heavily influence a game or have good leadership qualities


I saw glimpses of that coming out of Ayew on Saturday ,during the game and especially after went 1-2 down , I saw jack shyte coming from Grimes the whole game apart from bouts of laziness and his static admiration of his now and again decent pass ,plus his glaring non tackling when the going gets tough ,he needs to take a leaf out of Joe's book

Agreed. I meant if I was selecting a captain with hindsight, I’d give it to VdH, then Ayew. As we are now, Grimes keeps it 100%


Yes VDH should've kept it.

Maybe we should try to improve Grimes as captain as I believe he has the potential rather then just give up after 10 games and say he cant cut it

Ayew would make a good captain of an arms waving team. He's no fool to be fair and certainly knows how to give the right impression whilst not actually playing a team game.

Captaincy in the modern game is way overrated. It's not as though our sh1te midfield is going to be transformed by a different bloke wearing an armband.

Ayew and Roberts sprinted down the tunnel virtually before the echoes of the final whistle had ended.

It’s more the chasing down lost causes and harrying of opponents than the arm waving. You can’t fake that.

Agree that the captaincy is overrated though.

When has Grimes shown any inkling that he is a leader?

I wouldn't take it off Grimes, no telling how damaging that will be to the lads confidence

Take the captain's armband off Grimes and hand it back to VDH, the responsibility is affecting his game, not a criticism of Cooper it's just not working

Not a reason not to do it imo

Player of season last year, captain material he may not turn out to be, good midfielder he is

Part of the reason he was admired so much was he played well everywhere Potter played him and he was better in mid-field than other options.
IMO, the pressure of captaincy with the expectation of quality from a regular and stable starting position has left him exposed.
He's good but it looks like Cooper's set up isn't playing to his strengths.
