in my opinion rio ferdinand should be named new manchester united captain in time for the new campaign, i just feel he's grown into the role and with the dimise of garry neville and ryan giggs i think it's time for a new leader and i believe he could even be a better and calmer skipper than keano or maybe even king eric :eek: he's got a calming influence that goes right through the team and his comittment is un-questionable top class player imo :cool: anyone else think he should be give the captaincey full time next season ?

ye I think it should and will happen. A true professional and has matured a lot in his time with us.

However, he will not be a better captain than Keane. It's not about being calm, it's anything but. It's about nights like Juventus 99, inspiring your team mates to give everytrhing they have.

I've just text Fergie:

"Drew9 on ManUtdTalk wants you to name Rio permanent captain. Do it or Rio will merk ya. Oh, and win the game tonight. Cheers mate, speak soon."
Lol.

Rio should be made captain imo. He's just signed a new contract and is now likely to finish his career at the club. He has good presence on the pitch, doesn't mind giving his teammates encouragement or a telling off and is likely to feature in the vast majority of games when fit.
