The Captain Quandary?

The Captain Quandary?
With my old favourite Sol Campbell finally leaving, well we would assume so anyway as we've had nothing else to suggest otherwise, it's time to start looking at who could be the next captain for Portsmouth.

Who are the candidates?

Distin; not altogether reliable and tends to gloss over his own mistakes in the press but can be brilliant and now a senior.

Basinas - only joking, you've got to play to be captain!

Diop would you argue with him?

Niko; flashes of brilliance, respected but inconsistent.

Maybe some superstar unknown about to be signed?

James, brilliance but subject to confidence issues.

Mullins, because the boss loves him!

To be honest I'm stuck for a real outstanding option. I can't think of one, that's why I put superstar/wonder kid not yet known; maybe Kaboul, god knows.

It'll be Distin, If Hart really does want him to stay. But I really wouldn't be surprised - or happy - if the silly beggar went and gave it to Muggins!

Why not Basinas. Been there & done it. Never really given the chance to show his quality last season. Distin will probably leave especially if either Liverpool or Villa really want him.

David James for sure. But hey, if Maradona is coming here with 'top players', maybe we could have Buffon as captain... (really need a teeth smilie right now).

The reason I don't suppose it will be Basinas is because he is positive minded. thought maybe jobsite could help !

James would seem a good candidate in terms of experience, but I'm not sure its a great idea to have a keeper as captain, and worried it would affect his concentration. What about Herman?
