Is Hodgson the right captain for the team?

Post by Northern Raider » July 28, 2018, 9:30 pm

I know this thread is going to have a lot of haters, but if the consensus is to call for Ricky’s head, there has to also be a question around the captain’s performance over the last 18 months. This thread is not in anyway about his individual effort and performance on game day, it’s around his performance as a leader. Does the team respect him as a captain? Do they play for him? Is he the man they turn too when the pressure is on and is he leading them through these times to success?

Remember being a captain isn’t about having a strong game yourself and believing the players will follow. It’s about leading and inspiring your team and ensuring everyone is doing their job and working as one.

My position is he is a solid player but I think he was made captain to early and he lacks the leadership traits needed to guide this team to success.

P.S. I may be taking the p1ss. I love Hodgo

Still prefer him to Croker, even if he hasn’t rebuilt the Titanic in 3 weeks

Not only hasn’t he rebuilt it, he’s drilled some extra holes in the god damn hull!

Sezer was getting no respect from the refs tonight.

Was it Sezer dropping balls and missing tackles out there tonight? Not one error in the wet. That’s the kind of captain we need, getting out and leading by example. Doing the little things right.

He’s completely hamstrung by this useless team at the moment.

Good thread. This whole Croker bashing thing has been ridiculous.

I’ll wait till Hodgson actually wins a game as Captain before deciding who is better suited to be a Captain. So I have until next year it seems.

Hodgo is a very passionate man, he's doing just fine.

It's funny that he is asked questions directly in the presser where Stuart always has to deflect them to Croker.

That is going from last week though. My spirit is too broken to watch last night's.
