Well maybe i'm a little biased being a man utd fan but personally i think he's been a great captain for utd this season. Yeah he can be a bit goofy, but he's always yelling out commands around the team always aware of whats going on on the pitch. Plus he doesn't get in a big strop at the referee if a decision doesn't go his way *cough* john terry *cough*
It's only temporary anyway. Capello is rotating the arm band around in these friendly games, he isn't naming a permanent captain until the world cup so no reason why he doesn't deserve a chance at it.
i dont think its too bad a decision. as capello said he wanted to rotate captaincy up to the qualifiers.
I think Ferdinand can do a good job. Hes the right position.. plenty of experience and if u see him for united he does put himself about. Only downfall i suppose is that he hasnt ever had a long stint as an actual captain.... we'll see though
Guys: Swapping the responsibility around to see who shines through with natural leadership ability is a good idea. You'll find that the training teams at CTC will do a similar thing when they look to appoint section commanders during basic training. Those that show the best level of leadership potential will eventually be appointed.
