Just thought I'd open an honest discussion about Macca.
I'd like to know people's thoughts on him as Captain and whether giving him the armband was the wrong decision.

Not at all...but if you look through numerous threads Macca is not free from criticism.
It was more about me thinking he should've been club captain but not the onfield captain, that's all.

I don’t think so. He’s a decent keeper at this level but making him captain makes him untouchable. The only irreplaceable player in our squad is Hess and even he lacks confidence at present.

This is another conundrum for a new manager which we clearly need.

Fair enough. I agree with you, but it just shows the lack of onfield leaders in the team and that is down to poor player recruitment. Macca has it by default as the longest serving player IMO.

Cardwell not involved today so something has to give.

Nonsense. It is just as valid to question Macca's contribution as any other player. If you went to games you would see why his form and role as skipper are an issue this season. Are there any other players we must not offend Ginny?

The mediocrity on view today raises questions of the current management and several senior players. The atmosphere today had a tinge of Jolley's last few games where poor body language, lack of movement and verbal communication were obvious. I felt then that something was wrong and it would not surprise me if the Carlisle game is Limbrick's last chance.

The January window is effectively open. Agents, managers and players are considering options and the usual turbulence will ensue.

More to do with how isolated a goalkeeper is from the rest of the players, so not for me

I framed it as a question because as pointed out I haven't seen us play this season, so I cant really comment on individuals.

To be fair though, I don't need to go to know how bad we are because its been mostly like it for years ad nauseam.
