It seems many visitors these days don't want Phil Neville to be our captain. Someone suggested Lee Carsley the other day. I'm curious whom ToffeeWeb readers would like to see be our captain? I'd like to see Arteta.

Think he has all the right attributes, second choice Tim Cahill..

I’m not a fan of seeing goalkeepers given the captaincy as they are all ready captain of there defenders so I wouldn’t have Howard either. If Stubbs was ten years younger it would be him but at 36 he’s not getting any younger.
Yobo would be a shout. He’s calm, collected and leads by example but is he a leader. Neville is the captain anyway and to be honest I dont mind him being captain as long as he’s playing right back and away from our midfield.

Those of you who would seek to remove the armband from him explain why?

A good captain doesn’t always have to be calm. Sometimes Yobo needs a right old branding to pull his finger out in games. And it’s usually other players of Cahills ilk that could do it.

Its just my personal opinion. Stubbs for me would be my captain if I was manager but sadly he is 36 and getting to the end of his career. As I’ve said Neville is captain under Moyes and I dont mind that as long as he stays away from the midfield.

Hibbert for me, all the way - another Huyton lad!
13 Posted 08/11/2007 at 06:34:53
He seemed to get even better when he was appointed captain when Neville was out plus he’s captain of Nigeria so he’s obviously got what it takes.

Neville is obviously the best captain we have. I do not think there are too many candidates, Stubbs is now too old, perhaps Jagielka in a year or so.
16 Posted 08/11/2007 at 09:55:31
If that does not work out then maybe carsley. Also one of the everton "pensioners" but his desire and leadership abilities are second to none.

I’m actually pretty satisfied with Neville as captain. Face it, Moyes is going to play him no matter what. And although I sometimes doubt his footballing qualities, I’m one of the guys that thinks Phil has the capabilities of being a good captain.

Cahill isn?t all that vocal, but he does lead by example, he?s not obvious captain material. I think if Moyes is going to pick Neville every week, he?s the right man to be captain even if his ability as a player is questionable, you can?t question his ability to rally the troops.
21 Posted 08/11/2007 at 12:09:07
He would take pride in the fact of being the clubs first colored captain and it would also be an incentive to try harder and get at defenders a bit more.
Surely the captain of a team tries that little bit harder to motivate and rise above his co-workers .

Hibbo for President!

Regretably my company policy does not allow me to wander the halls with a flamethrower and take out my frustrations.
And mr masey, i merely making a suggestion. There may have been a element of fantasy about it, but one day he may well indeed wear that armband.
I have no qualms against phil as captain. David obviously saw fit that he was the man to lead the team into battle so more power to him.
And Mr Hobbs. Its simply not feasible that tony hibbert can be president. For a start hes not american, and secondly he is too intelligent to be running my country.
I presume you meant british prime minister.
