    Don’t you think he was a good captain?

    Reading now that Vinny wasn’t a great captain? This place has some strange opinons. I think enough former players have put on record how good a leader he was to put that to bed.

    Also, there’s nothing sentimental about Dave being given the role this season. I’m sure there are posters who would put the blame on him for this seasons shortcomings, but again that would be nonsense. It’s neither here nor there in the grand scheme of things.

    No. Picked for the wrong reasons, and not the most vocal

    Being the most vocal is about 20 years out of date for a captain.
    However, you have no idea as to the reasons why he was chosen, never mind being sure they were the wrong ones.

    Well do enlighten us to how he was selected as I'm sure iirc Pep said he left it to the players to vote

    Correct, so what were the wrong reasons in your opinion?
    I’d have thought having the whole squad unanimously choosing him would be about as good an endorsement you could get.
    Unless of course you’d rather have the old school, shouts a lot type.
    The players look up to him, respect and admire him. That’s the type of captain I’d like.

    Are we still talking about Kompany?

    Easy option for the playe
    Players took a very easy option with Silva as, imo it was done for sentiment rather than leadership ability. Was Vinnie a better skipper, I doubt anyone would say no, and he had the team playing to their max when things were tough
