  1. 1. Who takes over from Nev ?



Recommended Posts

you know what, id give it to distin, he has a mouth on him, and isnt afraid to let the team know there faults.

 

it has to be a defender or howard for me though, someone who can see the game from the back with good knowledge and experience. It wont be distin it will probably be yobo has someone mentioned, as hes been vice captain for a while

Distin for me. Neville got the armband as soon as he entered the club, thus Distin should get it as he is a solid experienced pro. Cahill isn't inspiring enough, and Howard is way too quiet to be captain. Yobo? No, not for me.

 

 

I suppost I do agree, I just hope he gets on well with the other players, dont want him to be quiet and not speak his mind if he is made captain. Most experienced on the team now

as vice captain it will be yobo, as yobo took the armband when pip went off too.

hes moyes longest serving player, that could be why.

the players call him the chief, so he must have some leadership skills, and him being captain of nigeria too shows he has experience of leading a side out.

I voted Yobo in the hope in gives him an edge to his game, makes him focus.Pretty sure Distin wouldn't make a bad one either.

As for Cahill sure he has passion by the bucket load, but he's always too happy going around giving away niggling little fouls rather than actually trying to win the ball.Sometimes I'm sure he'd rather wind an opponent up than actually win the dam ball, and then has a good laugh about it!!Not the example of a captain.

 

Anyone remember their playing days?....we had captains all the way from school days onwards, they would bark out instructions now and again, at the same time other team mates would also offer up advice and tell you what was going on, and you did just the same, you didn't leave it up to one man to do all the talking......you need 11 verbal captains on that pitch, unless of course they are better at talking with their feet.

 

Forgetting the verbal side you need as a captain a man who leads by example, doesn't give up at 2-0 down, doesn't relax at 2-0 up!

 

Someone with a footballing brain, strong, brave.....good looking, in other words ME!

 

But I can't make it most weeks.........so you'll just have to find someone else :whistle:

Knowing Moyes Hibbert will get it, I think Yobo will get it, but i think Cahill getting it could be an inspired choice by Moyes an may make Cahill shine, he got the talent the skill an loved by the team an fans. I'm voting Cahill

I'd like to see Yobo get it, saw him giving the lads a right rollicking during a defensive corner yesterday.

 

Would also be happy with Cahill getting it. Distin/Hibbert as outside choices.

 

If we had a derby coming up I'd scream for Cahill though.

yobo and arteta are the vice captains...therefore yobo shall get it i dont think its in question really and i have no issue with it he captained nigeria for a fair while...id prefer to see cahill get it if it wasnt yobo cos hes the kinda guy that can drive a team onwards or distin has captained a couple of clubs hasnt he? experienced too!

Distin for me, he lead Pompey and from what i have seen of him he is a natural leader. Yobo doesnt shout and jeer players on the way Neville does and i can see Distin doing this. I like the skipper to play at the back aswell.

Yobo will get it, probably cause he's been in the squad for ages.

 

I'd like to see Cahill get the band though. He may not have apparent leadership skills, but he works his socks off whenever he puts on the Everton jersey.

Don't think it should be a new signing. Neville was vice captain behind Weir for his first season and a half at the club....although he was captain on the pitch on a few occasions in 05/06 and regularly in 06/07.

I'd give it to TC personally....although I agree with most of what 250 said (other than him being the best man for the job :unsure:. Plainly I am, but I'm destined to be overlooked again because of Davey's lack of adventure :( ).

Cahill has captain makes me think of the possibility of Big Dunc has the captain. I'm not sure that TC's mentality suits a captain's role.

 

I think Yobo is bang on to be it, for obvious reasons.

 

I voted other, since I'm desperate to see JH take it ASAP.

When you think about it, we really don't have much to choose from do we !

Personally, I'd like Kevin Ratcliffe or Dave Watson!! but, because that isn't gonna happen, I think it's gonna be Jo Yo because he is Vice captain, wasn't he Moyes first signing?!? and he has captaincy experience on the international level with Nigeria. Now, saying all that, I actually voted for Tim Cahill, because he is the sequel to the movie 300, He gives everything and takes nothing!!

Who you want and who will be Captain are two different things. Maybe Osman as skipper and Hibbert as vice captain, that way Davey will have a bigger excuse to leave them in the starting 11 but alas, Yobo will get it and to be honest I can't think of any real reasons why anyone else should be, eihter through their style of play, their newness to the side or lack of experience in that department.

I find it interesting that nobody has mentioned pienaar. Whenever I have seen him play, especially for South Africa he is directing teammates and his work rate is second to none. I personally never like a captain on the wing, always felt it was more important to direct the flow of a game from the middle, but figured he would at least get a mention.

Yobo has been awesome since he got the captains armband. We've not conseded a goal in 2 games and he's scored more goals in 2 games then he did all of last season. At the moment i'm very impressed with Yobo.

did you see city man utd mate? if thats what were missin then we're in trouble :lol:

i just think lescott has that extra yard of pace on distin maybe an age thing but hes slotted in quicker than i thought he would!

 

 

He said he doesn't think we've missed Lescott! :P

i know he can be a little bit of a moaner, but if you want someone who is always vocal and working his ass off, it should be Stevie P. I went with Cahill on the vote because i didnt have my glasses on when i read the list and read 'other' as 'osman' (dont ask, its early). Honestly though, it could be pretty much anyone on the pitch at the moment!
