Default Depor Captaincy

Not sure if this was covered in general evolution and i dont intend to search through pages so forgive me.

I think a major part of going forward positively needs to be changing our captain policy. I think it is absolutely ridiculous to have whoever was there the longest be the captain.

In an era where we are constantly loaning and have 1 year contracts and different lineups every week, it results in a different captain. Maybe this was our policy before (maruo silva and Fran) but they were permanent fixtures and they actually had leadership qualities. each week i see a different person as the captain and I personally think it is very tacky! We had a community football tournament for 12 year-olds and we used that policy to make everyone feel good.

we need a leader. someone permanent that has leadership qualities not just passion (looking at u lucas).

I would prefer laure, alex or mosquera to be captain permanently. Celso is the captain for his country! that must mean something unless costa rica just captains whoever has some european experience.


I'd like to read different views on this.

Our current captains Manuel Pablo, Laure, Alex B tend to have leadership qualities just aren't starting players.

Honestly I'd pick Sidnei but hes only loaned to us not even one of our players. Id say Arribas/Lopo/Mosquera/Fabricio seem qualified

Yea I see Arribas barking a lot but not sure what he is saying. could be encouraging/leadership stuff or jus getting on people's back too much but he would be on my short list.

Lucas barks a lot too but its clear that its getting on people's back and I kinda hate it. he is our golden boy but wouldn't want him as captain

my top pick would be mosquera or celso/alex.

QUESTION to the forumers: Do you all even see the captain as an important piece in this current era of the game anyway?

I think Captain is still needed at least leader in the pitch, who is very mature and able to speak with everyone in the team, encourage when the score is down, has high fighting spirit, high leadership skill ... normally it ends up to the oldest or most senior player

but for me my choice would be really vary considering lots of factor ... Lucas and Arribas from their never give up spirit, Mosquera and Alex for the unspoken hardwork for this case (based on mentioned factor which comes only from my opinion), I would go with Lucas or Alex as captain then vice-captain for Arribas and Alex

Sidnei's rights belong to Depor as we paid a transfer, another thing is that it seems we already sold him, so all this mess looks like a loan

Alex hands down (if he is a starter). He is our Puyol. If not, Lucas, but he would need to shut up sometimes.

For me Alex, Lucas, Laure, Mosquera, Lux, Sidnei. In this order.

The first three would fight till the end for Depor, Mosquera is from A Coruna and is the same type, but doesn't have as much voice as Lucas. Lux is a senior member, and has a voice with his teammates and referees. Sidnei is a defensive leader, who doesn't need to be a captain to be a leader, but can be a backup as he will probably be on the field, unless he is injured.

surprised to see lucas being mentioned by a few.

to me he shuts down when the team isnt playing well. I had this feeling before and this was confirmed against villareal when he finally scored on the day we were having a good game. And yal know how he feel about him being vocal. I dont think he says positive things based on what i see looking at the tv (could be wrong)

He has the heart, but I'm not a fan of attacking players being captains. Its a lot easier to direct the team from the back and strikers need to be selfish at times, which does not make for a good captain.

Alex is my number one, together with Laure.
Both are coming from Fabril and play with all their heart on the pitch, despite not having the best quality.
Next on the list is Sidnei.

For me, Alex and Laure.

3rd captain would be nice for Mosquera.

I would choose Lucas, that is for sure. We have a soft coach, we need a tough captain.

Making Lucas captain, may be an incentive for him to stay
