Azpi isn't a leader like Terry but one can only do so much as a captain if the others operate on their own. Terry was a successful captain but it wasn't just because of his leadership qualities but he also had other leaders within the team that stepped up and took responsibility when needed. Can't really say the same about this squad, can we? 

Thats what I've been saying  it in a nutshell.

Go back a couple short years ago and the squad was full of captains of their national team or regular players for their countries team.

Whats happened is all that commitment,passion and footballing heads it took to get them there has slowly drained away. We are left with a magnolia  copy of then.

We dont have a leader. I did think Luiz had it in him but him and Rudi were diabolical too

All of them moping around hands on hips feeling sorry for themselves. I would have gladly punched them alll.

How do you give faith again to players that give up like that?

I'm at a complete loss. Never felt this bad even in Div 2.

Okay TBH, I don't remember much of 2015/16 apart from that 2-2 draw against Spurs. :lol:  But I don't recall Azpi being bad in the 'Mourinho Season' compared to this season, where he has had more shaky performances than solid ones.

Overall though and I've said this a few times, people take Azpi's consistency and strong performances in the past years for granted. He rarely made mistakes, was dependable, always with 9/10 performances (something even Terry pointed out). Guess this likely down to the fact that he doesn't do anything fancy or isn't like a vocal/standout character like Terry or Ivanovic.

Or down to the fact he is not 18-27. Some people think footballers seize to be able to play at the highest level once they hit 30...

There is literally no WC RB over 28, unless you count Azpi.

One other over 27, Walker, who is 28.

That's it.

Dani Alves just destroyed Man United. At the age of 35. He was playing in midfield but nevertheless

MF

not RB

I am right

there are no WC Rb's over 28 unless you count Azpi

even if I give you Alves ( and ZERO chance he is a fulltime RB)

he is a genetic freak (like CR7 and Fernandinho)

you cant name any over 29

Azpi is a spent force

sell him whilst we can still get £30m to £40m

time to rebuild

he is dropping off a cliff right in front of all our eyes

zero nostalgia for moi

I am ruthless

my football team should be too

Just shut up Azpilicueta, more action less words. 

Indeed but what was he - or anyone else in his position - supposed to say? It means nothing these days to hear Sarri or the players talk after a defeat because it's just the same BS overall.

People faulting players for their commitment to the cause. Azpilicueta ? Really ? 

Fans need to make a difference between a player struggling in a rotten system and who is himself making the system weak. 

Azpilicueta and Alonso respectively are two perfect examples for that. 

But blaming Azpilicueta for not showing enough hunger is absolutely moronic.

Our players love to post all kind of crap on instagram/twitter/... but when we lose they all go into hiding for couple days. 

Seeing other teams captains or key players, they always bring positive messages to fans evem after losses. 

It goes to show how weak mentality our players have.
