TIA Reserve Team

yeah.. Suso is my first choice over shelvey for starter already imo..
I think if Kelly transitions into being a central defender he could be ready to take it off Stevie when he retires in the next 2-3 years.Daniel Agger.
Perfectionist.Has that winning mentality and commands respect.
Eventually Kelly seems to be the perfect candidate.Local lad and has a very mature head on his shoulders.
Well if you look at how the summer panned out, Allen was his primary target and dare I say the one who was going to "excite us".im not so sure about that.....
is i really that blatant at the game?
Heavily doubt it, Allen doesn't have the attributes necessary to be a captain, he's more of a quiet grafter who just goes about his work. Could you really imagine him having the force of personality to be arguing with a ref or shepherding a teammate away from conflict?Moot subject.
Allen will be Rodgers' choice, if he's still manager when Gerrard retires.
I actually reckon he'll go for Lucas ahead of Allen. He seems like the right type to captain a team and has done it before at club and International level.Well if you look at how the summer panned out, Allen was his primary target and dare I say the one who was going to "excite us".
He rates the boy very highly, so that's what leads me to believe he would be Rodgers' preferred choice of captain.
Cant see Gerrard having the captaincy taken away from him while he's still playing regularly, and I'm not sure Rodgers will still be here in 3 or 4 years from now.

I'm not so sure it's important to have that local connection. What you're looking for is a guy out there who can rally the team when down, keep the players focused when in possession of a 1-0 or 2-0 lead, and generally be a good example to the other players.What would perhaps be a better question to ponder is will any of the young scouse academy lads develop to the stage were we are able to have a scouser as captain again? I admit that its a personal source of pride that we actually have a local club developed player as captain and something I will miss when he retires.
I'd prefer Martin Kelly. I think he's more likely to be a central defender when Agger or Skrtel goes than Wisdom.Agger is a fantastic choice, how old will he be when Gerrard hangs up his boots though? Always liked a center half as captain...Sammy was a fine captain, Tony Adams etc....
But my outside bet for the job in maybe 5 years from now is...Andre Wisdom...he looks a strong leader and is very vocal on the pitch..
