Has anyone officially announced that Cooper is the new team captain, or is he still vice-captain and is deputising for the captain who did not play on Sunday because of suspension or wasn't selected? We are all assuming that Coops is captain but as much as I like him, he's possibly not going to start many games ahead of Pennington and Pontus. MM

MM I believe you are correct. Cooper was merely deputizing. It can only mean one thing. Captain Pontus.

George I'd agree with that, who else didn't play who was an obvious starter? green? I think that it will have gone a long way for TC to have done it a democratic way. it will help to make all players valued and that an only lead to an harmonious dressing room, which as we all know is half the battle. Good man TC. its only been a couple of months and a one competitive game, but I like you.

i think you could be the man to take us up, if not this season in a couple or so. i'm really positive for our future tonight people! rads is the man, TC could well be the man and we have a young squad who are looking quite dangerous. one more Pontus quality cb and for me maybe a really old head/ dominator in the centre (strachan, batty, decourt type) and I think we're nearly there! MOT TO YOU ALL!

Why should cooper make way for penninhton if he plays like that? Pontus prob will be captain. didn't see game but from what I've read. Only neg is sacko and goalie. Hope tc is brave enought to swap him if need be.

TC has said 4 players got votes, Bridcutt was one of them. Since Cooper hasn't been announced it suggests 2 of Bridcutt and probably Green and/or Pontus as Capt and Vice. Green as captain with Jansson his voice up/on the field makes the most sense to me (I know, people don't like Keepers as Captains, I to an extent agree). That would make Green the go between for players and management, sensible as the senior player, with the big man as his SGT barking out the orders on the pitch. Works for me.

Pontus for skipper is my vote. His passion will help others I believe. Ausman, I read your post re bein sports not having the championship rights and having no way to watch it. I watched it in Sydney mate and happy to share how to get games if your interested. MOT

That would be good thanks syd. Lutv not up and running either so not able to watch any game at the moment. Re above. How can green be captain. He is not playing?

08 Aug 2017 08:33:41
Flick me an email at blueinoz at hotmail and I'll respond with how I watch games Ausman LUTV very poor at the moment anyway. Agree re Green but also re some of the dodgy comments re his replacement on Sunday

Not saying that Coops should make way for Pennington Aus. I rate Coops and think he deserves a break (new manager etc) but, I'm assuming that we have guaranteed Everton playing time for Pennington otherwise there will be financial penalty clauses in the loan. It is a regular caveat used by perm teams these days. So, imagining Pontus will start as soon as his suspension finishes, it's hard to see Coops being first choice. MM

08 Aug 2017 14:05:55
Gotcha mm So we have to play some loan players even if they not in form? Not talking about pennington
The penalties for not playing clause is new to me. Seems a tad unfair.

Coops had a good game because he had better positioning than last year however he did just hoof the ball in most of his clearances which is fair enough at certain times but it also gave them back the ball and gave them chances to push us back . The gk seemed more interested in who or what there players were doing in are box instead of watching the corner and claiming or clearing the ball .
