With our boy Carrick gone who gets the arm band.
I'm not one for a captain in goal cause I think the captain needs to be around the pitch getting other players going but since we have to many sheep on the field I'd give it straight to de gea.

Agreed Leahy. Not really spoilt for choice in the captaincy department. Other options are Lukaku or Herrera for me. A i always like my cbs to be captain personally. Position which is perfect for barking orders. Bailly if he ever gets a game. A left field choice would be lindelof but isn’t going to happen. If Alderweireld comes in he would be a candidate for me.

Thanks park
I give you the award of being my new friend.

He wouldn't be my first choice but don't overlook the possibility that matic might get it. He plays every game and seems to be jose's man. Pogba if he grows up, he would either sink or swim.
Toni or smalling if they are going to be starters again next season would get it on seniority.
I agree i'm not a fan of keeper captains but ddg would wear the arm band with pride i'm sure and is certainly worthy.

There seems to be a lot less of the Keane Terry Gerard Vieira type captains around now. The game has changed so much I think Keane would have half our players in tears if he rollicked them like he did Becks Neville butt cole Yorke and co. Could you imagine how the likes of sanchez martial or pogba or shaw would react.

I grew up in an era when the captain was the figure head of the club the team and represented the supporters.

I suppose that still is the case at some clubs but its been a long time since our captain has been a truly inspirational figure at the top of his game making sure everybody is on top of theirs.
What I would give to throw 3 players into or squad like Keane Rio and Neville to uphold standards.

Would the added responsibility for Pogba mature and improve him?

I think it is very telling that we are struggling to identify a captain. Sure, the captain role is not what it is in cricket but when I played they were a strong voice on the pitch, made everyone stick together and told you what was needed, got that extra bit out of you. We lack character and leadership on the pitch and have for a while, it is no good having a captain who can’t communicate in English to the other players, totally wasted armband. The thing is here that someone like Lingard at 25/ 26 should be a candidate but instead he continues with daft poses and doesn’t look like he has matured in his life, people still think he is young.

We could look at Phil Jones but is he a leader, looks quiet when not injured. Don’t mention Smalling. If Herrera held a position then maybe, he gets it, he gets the club as well but doesn’t hold down a place enough and his contract situation doesn’t bode well.

Until sorted it seems like mix and match until the right character comes along, we must think of character in our buys this summer.

No way Pogba should have it, done nothing to deserve it, DDG is the stand out choice for me, other than that we are seriously lacking and like above says Matic is prob the most trusted outfield player to take it.

I think Lukaku has been the stand out player this year and in his first season i feel he gets the club as much, if not more than any other player. He is vocal, he works his ass of every game and he don't care if he assists or scores the goals.
Captain type if you ask me.

Id prefer a centre back or centre midfielder. Strikers should only be focusing on scoring. Its worrying that there's a lack. We had this conversation last year and here we are again. Carrick wasn't the most vocal player and had it on seniority. Now we lack even a senior player who stands out. Of course Fellaini could sign a new deal and take the armband.

Upholding standards? Like missing drugs tests? 😉.

Pogba should be given the chance as capt. It might just spark the lad into performing like he is playing Citie away every game. 😆😆.
