I love Jags but his days are numbered. Iíd love for Coleman to be captain from now on.

Unpopular opinion but I don't think it makes a jot of difference.

Coleman will be just as much of a leader, captain or not.

Another vote for Skipper Seamus

Give him the armband

True but I feel he is more deserving of the honour of captaining our great club than anyone else.

If the captain is a strong enough leader that other players look up to it can make a big difference. John  Terry was a modern day captain that took the role seriously and Chelsea were a better team for it. Coleman may be able to do that for us.

Completely agree with all of that. I think Coleman has more than earned the respect of his peers. He was plucked from an obscure league for £60k and has worked his bollocks off to become the player that he is right now. He is a perfect example of what can be achieved with attitude and application, and just looks a natural leader. He cajoles those around him and just seems fearless. When he speaks off the field, he comes across as a really nice guy, with real humility, but a burning desire to be the best that he can possibly be. These are all of the traits that you want in a leader of men.
He's definitely been the best value for money signing of the premier league era...
£60k, yes he really did cost us just £60k. The same that we paid Bolton Wanderers back in 1982 for a midfielder who had a really poor injury record and could very easily have been a massive blunder. Thankfully, that one turned out to be a bargain too, as he put his previous injury record to bed, and we ended up with the warhorse that was Peter Reid.

Twenty seven years later, we were still taking £60k punts and brought in a raw Irish youngster, who developed into Super Seamus!

The £60k thing is massively overlooked by everybody outside the club.

Just reading on here a few posts about James Mc Carthy coming back from the injury similar to Seamus. His form has dropped very noticeably recently. I'm wandering, if being back in the thick of it is pressurisng him into mistakes, etc.

This isn't criticism, and if there's one player who dosen't deserve it, it's Seamus Coleman. Is his problem Psychological? I've always considered him a real tough lad and still do. Let's hope it's a blip and he'll soon be back to his marauding-mad Irish best. :)

Perhaps itís the pressure of wearing the armband thatís causing the dip in Colemanís form. Maybe the international break has come at the right time for him therefore letís hope heís back to his dynamic best for the WHU game.

Or, there's no change in Coleman's output and people were looking at his pre-injury period through blue tinted glasses.

Canít agree with that, pre injury he was on fire with his assists and tirelessly bombing up and down the wing causing all sorts of problems and thatís before you take into account the goals he chipped in with.

For the opinion that his output is comparable to pre-injury, we would need to see stats for the games to be conclusive. It's a concern for me as a supporter. I'm happy with him anywhere near his best. He was ok at the beginning of the season but has dipped noticeably in the last 2-3 games. Maybe he's getting used to Silva's tactics. I know he needs to improve to get anywhere near his top form. I'm not criticising, as I said in the previous post. He's just nowhere near his best and needs to improve significantly. I'm not calling for him to lose his place to Jonjoe Kenny, but Silva's mantra, "as far as I'm aware is", if you're not up to the mark you have to start on the bench. Injuries allowing of course.

I've said it before on here when discussing Bolasie. The general consensus with bad injuries is that a player will take the same amount of playing time to find the form he was in pre-injury, as the length of time sidelined by an injury. So we need to be patient with him, because he's still got a while to reach that. Especially when you take into consideration the end of season break just gone.

I think we use injuries far too much as an excuse for players.

He was very good last season after the injury. Heís now had a full pre-season so any drop in form is because of that player, not the injury.
