I’d go with Kalas, with a Moore as vice.

Interestingly, of the non academy players, O’Dowda is longest serving, followed by Moore, then by Pato.

If we sign the midfield powerhouse / Gary O'Neil type character then he will probably be captain. I think Moore could do it.

Just seeing you mention O'Dowda's name and I don't recall any of us in last night's FBC podcast giving him airtime as being in our starting X1 or, IIRC, as a substitute - says it all really!

www.foreverbristolcity.podbean.com - launched it late June to vent the frustration that supporting City had become since JAN 2018 [with the odd game an exception]. 15 episodes up so far - give it a listen, feedback welcome. DaveFevs an excellent contributor plus others. Great fun when we do it live and then recording uploaded next day.

Wouldn't it be nice if we signed a midfield dynamo that bossed the middle of the park and was a natural leader

I like the idea of Kalas and Moore but until he is a nailed on first team starter it seems a bit pointless, otherwise my only concern is that the added pressure of being captain may affect his game

I don't think it matters who is captain. I'd probably give it to a midfielder as they're generally going to be closer to the ref when he needs a word.

A team of leaders is important imo.

The importance of captain has always been a big thing for fans in this country but abroad I don't think many countries see it as important.

Fans like to think of someone with an armband at the back leading by example. Heading balls away. Shouting orders. Or a midfielder captain taking responsibility to drive the team on to win the game or do a sliding tackle etc.

The reality is they can still do all that without an armband around their arm.

That is probably most fans wish list I reckon.

Hunt?

He can't even do the basics of right back let alone lead others.

I’m fairly sure that Hunt has been passed the arm band during a game at some point. Whether you like it or not, he is experienced in the Championship in comparison to most. He will at this stage play most games, unless we upgrade. I did quantify my post by saying “none imo are standout candidates”. Unfortunately, the one leader we did have, has just been let go. There are a few ‘ potential future captains ‘ with Moore being the obvious one. But I would be amazed if he went from a young lad out on loan, to a couple of months later becoming the Captain. The reality is, we probably need some leaders. COYR

I would give it to Taylor Moore as he has indicated he wants it. He must be a mainstay of the side this season. Think he may thrive on it but this is just my opinion. But he seems an old head on young shoulders and hopefully will be around a while. This is notwithstanding any notable obvious incoming candidates

Yup - it's Taylor Moore for me.

Kalas and I'd go Moore VC as he's shown before he wants to step up to lead

Kalas, Moore VC providing he's sticking around, which I hope he is.....

Unless of course there is a more experienced player who is captain material coming in.....

Same for me fellas.

Taylor Moore should be Captain of who we have at the moment. Thats not to say we might get a player in, but this kid is very decent and treated shamefully by the previous administration. He’s earned it via some very regrettable experience that will make him stronger.

Kalas.

Moore isn’t guaranteed to be a starter, I think.

With Holden favouring a 3-5-2 (ish) formation I would be shocked if the first choice trio isn't Kalas, Moore and Baker.  Zak moving out to right wing back, dropping back into the middle when Bakes goes off after 20 mins!

I really don't see Vyner as a wing back and I would be very worried if he is being considered to be. Right back or Centre back certainly suits his attributes better. He is most suited to a RCB in a back 5 in my opinion.
