    Ryan Woods should be captain.

    Yes, and didn't play in the cup game.

    Egan was captain last Saturday and today so first captain was in starting lineup and still captain. Wrong choice though

    And if he isn't playing?

    We don't have any players guaranteed a starting spot bar Bentley. Every position is up for grabs or the player is inexperienced. Tough call.

    Woods would be in my first 3 picks when picking our team.

    I've not been that impressed in pre season or first two games in Dan, a few soft goals that I think he'd have expected to get a bigger hand on.
    Think it may be playing behind a very unbalanced back 4.

    I'd probably give it to Nico

    What if there were no hypothetical questions?

  21. Kamo?

    Only choice for me,the fact we have been after him for 2 years and looks like a regular starter why not.

    too softly spoken he isnt a leader...if its not Dean id give it to Bentley

    Certainly lacked leaders yesterday. If any of them I'd have thought Bjelland. I'd have thought Bentley has other concerns about his own performance to get secured first before being given the added burden of captaincy.

    Bentley hasn't been at his best so far, poor distribution and not sure he shouldn't have done a bit better on a few occasions over last two games.
    Difficult call and John Egan if he was playing regularly obvious choice with pedigree but he's not playing well enough to be guaranteed a start.
    If Harlee leaves I'd hope we have a replacement centre back in mind to come in.

    I used to think that but Bjelland doesn't strike me as a great leader having seen him play.
    At (at least) one point in the last match he was telling Nico to tuck in and get closer to him......which is fine if we didn't have the ball.....except we did....in Bentley's hands.....and Rico was rightly pushing out to the flank to receive the ball under less pressure. Thankfully, whilst Rico heard him, he chose to completely ignore him as it was silly.
    I think Woodsy is probably the one who could act as a decent captain, always would lead by example with his workrate and determination, plus plays in a "heads-up" manner that directs play, which imo makes him ideal for marshalling the troops, even if he is diminuitive.

    Kamo, Josh or Woods. Kamo is probably most likely to start every game so him.

    None of us will know how each player is regarded by the rest of the squad but I'd say Kamo is too new and neither of the other two seem remotely captain material.

    Why don't you think Woods could do it? I can accept it if it's because you don't think he'll be a regular starter, which is fair enough, but that's about it.

    I don't think he reads the game well but the main reason would be that he's not that vocal with the players around him. Dean is constantly talking, as is Yennaris and Vibe but no-one else seems to be a natural organiser and able to communicate tactics during the game.

    The whole squad knows wats is happening in the background. The DoF remain in control and the whole situation needs sorting out asap. If Dean does not want to stay and the DoF have offered the best terms that the Bess can offer ten let's move on and a get a replacement. The lack of leadership was also a major issue as the defending on Saturday. But to keep getting told that no bids/offers have come in and not playing key players who where so influencing last season in defence (Dean/Colin) -something is not right and fans can work this out! Words and figures don't seem to add up here, and the DOF need to sort this out for DS, rather than leave him in the middle.
