So after the last two games it seems Paul Hurst has a good understanding of the players he wants in his first team for *every* game. Unsurprisingly, Craig Disley has fallen out of favour due to there being better players able to replace him. His absence from the starting eleven provokes the question: who will take over as captain? Personally, I'd suggest Shaun Pearson.


We've got Jason Pearcey, number one, we've got the best team in the land...

Oooh, looks like trolling to me.

Disley will have a big part to play this season, no doubt about it. Still one of our better players and his goals could be very useful this season, providing he gets back into the team, of course. Regardless, you don't remove the club captaincy from a player just because he's not currently being picked. The on-field captain when Disley isn't playing seems pretty likely to be either Pearson or Brown.

LOL Maringer, what makes you say that ?  

Can see both sides to this tbh.
Won't deny I've always thought Pearson would be a very good captain.
But if he takes that on field role in Disley's absence it's good enough for me.

There must be a very good reason why Hurst thinks Disley is better suited.
Discipline ?
Experience ?

Without taking the urine....
Intelligence ? (Perhaps not, Bryan Robson was hardly mastermind ?)

PS Sorry Shaun you're a very nice guy & top bloke !

I agree with Maringer. Don't dis the Dis.

Pearson would be a good skipper if he would show a bit more discipline and kept his hands to himself (oo-er ).

I'd also suggest Shaun Pearson. This is primarily based on the fact that he's captained us the last 2 games.

Think Shaun's less lickley to get booked for decent as captain. He talked his way into a fair few bookings last season.

That's a very good point, though I think the refs give captains a bit more leeway when arguing the case for his teammates rather than about themselves....

This. You can tell Pearson would accept the role of captain with pride. You always see him at functions such as coaching the kids etc. Seems a decent bloke to me and obviously likes being here. That being said, I don't believe we should take the captaincy off Disley just because he hasn't played for a couple of games, he's another top bloke IMO, always talks sense in interviews and clearly knows the game.
Maybe club captain for Disley when the time comes to hand over the captaincy?

Perhaps if players gave refs more respect (a la rugby union) players (including Pearson) could avoid unwanted suspensions through the totting up of yellows?
