    Controversial comments, seem completely unfounded and ridiculous to me. Chip on his shoulder?

      Who was captain for the vast majority of his caps? Beckham and Gerrard? I reckon he would have been better than them. I'm always in favour of a defensive player being captain - they tend to be better equipped for the role.

      A shame the FA declined to comment.

      Who, ultimately, makes the decision? The coach at the time or the FA?
      You are the result of 4 billion years of evolutionary success. Act like it.

      Beckham I would imagine though my memory isn't great, he would have been a better leader possibly yes, we'll never know but to put it down to race... That's quite some statement to make.

      So he reckons that those in power sat down and agreed that "We could make Sol Campbell Captain, but he's black and we're not having that." Absolutely ridiculous. Cry harder Sol you whinging insincere rabble rouser.

      What a load of bollocks. Paul Ince was made captain in 1993, so it's not as if there wasn't a precedent.

      Maybe he's right. But making a controversial comment like that, that will be splashed about all the media and will no doubt be make over 10 pages of race argument on here. That'll help shift a few more copies for a dwindling football celebrity

      Tony Adams, then Alan Shearer.

      No fan of either, but if you believe the captain should be a vocal, up and at 'em sort of player, both would have been better choices than Sulzeer. (I always thought his name was Solvedt, just wiki'd it and it's Sulzeer. Never heard of anyone called that before)

      Yep Tony Adams for a year Shearer for 3 years(I believe) Beckham for 6 years and John Terry for 1 year, plus a few other players getting the band on odd games.

      Beckham is the only one in my opinion who wasn't captain material and maybe Sol could claim to be in front of him. Always thought Beckham got it for his off field status rather than his leadership skills on pitch.
