Is it time? What would the consequences be? Troy has 'some' undoubted leadership qualities. Whether we like it or not, he's the public face of the club. Now whether that's because the club have facilitated that to happen or he's pushed his own agenda is up to debate - but thats how it is. The press or TV shows come along for a piece and 9 times out of 10 its Troy who is put forward. Have we now backed ourselves into a situation where he has too much sway in the corridors? Do all the players like and respect him? Or does he have a small clique of powerful voices and the rest simply follow or ignore him? He's done an undoubted job on the pitch over the years and his influence shouldn't be talked down. But the silly soundbites and on-field temperament issues are taking their toll and beginning have more negative effects that may start to outweigh the positives. Some may think they already do. He's had a half-decent season in my opinion - and his absence has been evident when not playing. But does he do a captains job on the pitch? A captain for me sets professional standards and demands concentration and efforts levels are maintained. Season after season, these levels drop alarmingly down the home-stretch. Troy's head was amongst the first to drop on Saturday. And I question his self-belief at times...a streak of arrogance can be good for a striker. But too often he claims pre-game that top defenders will hate playing against him...only for them to school him for 90 mins. This is a catch-22 situation IMO. I honestly don't think he should be the captain on the pitch anymore...but I'd like him to stay at the club. I think some of his issues with anger on the pitch and comments off it are a direct result of him being captain. However, take the captaincy off him and he will almost certainly want to leave the club I believe. As I have mentioned elsewhere, I think we could maybe offset this by having a return to the system of 'Club' and 'Team' captains. I think Troy makes a good club captain to an extent. But I think his days as team captain should be curtailed now. It's time for new voice to be heard on the pitch and the increasing voice of Deeney to be made smaller.
