Before Kane. Ah it’s driving me mad. Sheringham? Sol?
If like Kane we're including one-off captaincies it's Scott Parker in 2012. If we're talking about permanently named captains (which obviously Kane isn't just yet), it'd be Gary Lineker at the start of the 90s.
Was Robbo ever captain?
I think sol was captain, but must have been while at them lot.
I think he was doing well, up until the Gary Neville incident
I don't believe so, no.
Judas was never permanent captain, but like Scott Parker did cover for a few matches while Alan Shearer was unavailable during his stint. A couple of years back he made a massive media stink about this, claiming he would've been permanent captain for a decade if he was white.
Ledley was vice captain and was meant to captain england at the 2010 wc after terry got flogged off but he got injured. Doesn't answer your question but it was interesting at the time.
The greatest captain England never had.
Yes I remember! I always felt it was a dig at Eriksen and McLaren, because John Terry was not as good and yet got preferential treatment. And, was fairly old school in his attitude, as Anton Ferdinand would attest. Not much of a reach to have manager and captain like-minded. Its been spun horribly as Sol playing the victim but actually I think he had a point in this single case
Scott Parker was captain of England while at Spurs. It was for one game.
I think that was my first visit to Wembley as it happens. We lost to Holland
I think Judas would've made a terrible captain no matter his race. No loyalty, no self-awareness, and a huge victim complex. He's the last man you'd ever want leading the dressing room. But I do agree race would've been an issue even if he was otherwise suitable: I think a perfectly qualified black candidate in the late 90s would have likely been overlooked.
I wouldn't trust Judas to lead a one-man choir.
Possible. Rio was the obvious choice for me, complete footballer who Sol tried to emulate on many occasions with less delicate skill. And Paul Ince was captain for a bit under Hoddle. Like you say, attitude, awareness all part of sol’s strange personality, combined with a systemic attitude at the FA which they still struggle with now, he was never going to be captain for a decade
Did Woodgate ever captain England?
Not after he beat the shit out of a pakistani in Leeds
I don't think Paul Ince was overlooked
Just remembered Woodgate and that incident. He knuckled down and sorted himself out though. What a pairing for both us and England him and King could have been if they had been fit enough.
LOL it was close. Bill Nick almost signed him and Bobby Moore never forgave WHU for not letting him go.
Separate names with a comma.
