Another thread that exhibits how lost the majority of fans are on this forum. Should there be a correlation between skill and one receiving the captaincy? Yes. Should it be the cause? No
Over the past 25 years look at the winners of the Cup, I can think of 2 to 3 instances where the most skilled player was the captain of the team.
First off - I love when people try to act superior to others on this forum / this forum in general. It's like a new trend lately. If some of you are so much more enlightened than the rest of us, you probably should just.. stop coming here, right? It's especially ironic that you're calling us "lost", when you posted a thread the other day that 99% of the board was against. Not to get too personal (because who has the time for that) but I feel like the facebook fanpage is more your.. breed.
Second - Who in this thread said the captain should be the most skilled player on the team? I think most are saying the captain shouldn't be the LEAST talented player on the roster.
There's certainly a happy middle ground between skill and leadership, but I don't think Salvador hits it.
