Interesting shout for Trent but if you think about the qualities needed to be captain I’m not sure he fits the bill; leading by example, good communicator, great attitude. I think we can agree Trent doesn’t always display these traits, wasn’t too long ago he was being called out for his lack of effort. It’s easy to forget given the change in position and how well he played towards the end of the season. Just think it’s strange some are willing to discount Virgil based on last season, when Trent probably offered up some of the worst performances of the season.
Seems like I’m dragging him a bit but it’s more to make a point than anything else. I do think he turned a corner towards the end of the season and can’t wait to see more of him in that position but just personally don’t think he’s captain material (not yet anyway).
For me it’s between Virgil and Allison. Obviously VVD didn’t have his best season but think a lot of it was blown out of proportion. Never doubted his attitude and he’s clearly one of the most vocal. Ali is just mr consistent isn’t he? Probably our player of the year last season and I wouldn’t mind seeing him handed the armband at all.
Interesting how you are quick enough to doubt Trent when the whole squad last season was bang average, you say Trent isn’t a great communicator, he hasn’t shown the traits you mentioned because he didn’t have to, Jordan did all that,
Lack of effort on his part you say, well same could be said of Virgil, he hasn’t been as solid since his injury and has made some howlers, the only player showing consistency has been Ali, and to be fair that’s a great shout too, in fact I’d put him ahead of both Virgil & Robbo,
Again you find it strange that ppl discount Virgil going by last season’s debacle but aside from Ali everyone else had the same awful season, all of those mentioned I’m sure will be a fine captain, however I really can’t see the point in awarding the armband to a player who may only have a few years left at the club,
I wouldn’t be disappointed if indeed Ali pipped Trent but, I’d rather we just give to Trent now and we don’t have to worry for a decade or so, Ali would be ideal as vice captain,
Trent is 24, but feels he’s been playing more than his 8 years, he’s won everything there is to win and knows exactly what is expected of being Captain of Liverpool FC, he’s had two outstanding captains before him and will have learnt how he should conduct himself both on and off the pitch, it’s too big a opportunity to have a Scouse born dyed in the wool bona fide Red becoming Captain, not forgetting that Being the ultimate honour for a local lad.
Again….it’s a no brainer for me !!
