confirmed.

Not surprised - just disappointed.

Yes he was an improvement last season on the season before but for me it should have been Connolly

Ditto. Connolly is well liked by the fans, Smith isn't.

It says it all we have Smith as captain who anyone who has attended the games over the last two years knows struggles to perform at this level.

We have Young at right back who anyone whose attended games at this club over the last two years knows isn't up to this standard of football.

Arthur , MErsin, Turpin Tajbactsh, Alpha and Blackburn and a few others aren't going to be able to play at this level.

Odd decision - Connolly would be my choice by a country mile

Has DD made him captain for continuity and allegiance to the team ????

Don't know......

But With Connolly on the pitch, we have 2 captains don't we????

That's not a bad thing surely..

DD and Jimmy were together at Chelsea and I believe Jimmy wore the armband there.

HUGE mistake. Smith is NOT a leader.

"A captain is a leader. On and off the pitch someone who is accepted within the group. A mature person. Happy to appoint Jimmy Smith"
