Leader on the pitch

Post by big ming on Wed Aug 29, 2018 7:01 am

Given the lack of any leadership from the dugout, we desperately need someone to replace JT who was forever organising and barking out orders. In short, we need a leader who you would happily follow into battle.
James Chester is a reliable player (generally) but too placid to be a a Captain. I hope we can get someone in during the next 2 days because I cannot see anyone in the current squad who could take on the role.

Whilst it would be nice to have a Terry type figure on the pitch the best solution is to replace the manager, he is ultimately the main leader. I really hope someone is being spoken to/sounded out with a view to making a change during the international break, though its worth pointing out at this moment that this weekends game seems to be the type of game that Bruce wins to stave off any sack talk for another month or so. I think I’ve almost settled on Dean Smith being our best option domestically unless we can prise a Rafa type manger away from a Newcastle with promises of backing upon promotion. Actually the more I think about that the more plausible it might be given the unrest up there and lack of backing.

Was Hourihane captain wherever he was before? And Lansbury? And was Hogan as well?

Oh, I forgot, all bought by Bruce, none now played by him (Ok, Hogan's injured but even if he wasn't).

One of our policies under Bruce, Round and Wyness, was signing players who were meant to be leaders and had captained their previous teams, Wyness said they're what Bruce would call 'real men'. Lansbury, Hourihane, McGinn, Chester and Jedinak were all captains at their former clubs, Glenn Whelan was vice captain at Stoke and has captained Ireland as well, even McCormack was captain whilst at Leeds.

The real leader we need is a new manager.
