    Change the captaincy

    Who put Pope as a captain? If his performances were constant that he put in all over the pitch and was 100 percent every match but he just is not the man we need to put a backbone into the team.

    Yesterday proves we have no one in defence prepared to put their fight into the cause. Too many players at the back allowing time and space for Accrington to screw themselves out of impossible positions for goals. We need someone at the back whom can make themselves make his defenders feel accountable...having a striker as a captain strikes to me as giving it to Pope because of his supporter connections to the club.

    Defenders are traditionally captains simply because they can analyse what is happening in front and at the side of them...Pope cannot read the game like that nor gee up a defence from the front

    Surprised no one has picked up on how poor the defence has been since Pope has been captain...change it now!!

    I think the captain is a bit of an overrated title. Plus we donít have any defenders capable of leading a team?

    Strikers should never be captains.

    Keepers (just about), central defenders, central midfielders are the only positions that should be.

    I also think Kay should be the captain.

    Captain of a football team is a titular position. I hope this is not a by the back door, not again, Pope bashing? Those 15 have come in handy.

    Instead of criticising Pope just hope he doesn’t get injured. i Can’t see where the goals and assists are coming from to keep our club in the league if Pope isn’t in the team.

    I don’t see any other candidates for captain in our current squad. We have a lot of inexperienced players and quite a few well past their best type of players. I’m backing Pope for the job.

    Iím not criticising Pope at all. Heís fantastic for us. Scores goals and his overall gameplay is fantastic. I just donít think that strikers should be captains.

    Pope as captain is absolutely fine looking at the team who else better qualified? True we have been on a terrible run with his captaincy but I think that's more to do with Aspin getting things wrong time and time again, his half time team talk must have been truly inspirational Saturday lol
