If you are happy with the play-style, playing well, scoring, getting involved in games, enjoying being an elder-statesman in the squad and have the adulation of the crowd behind you once again, I'm almost 100% certain that he'll commit to us in this scenario.

And what a magical thing that would be.
He wants to play in Europe or win things.

We need to show some ambition this year in the cup and continue to improve before we start thinking heíll commit to us.

Wilf wants to be loved.

There's the look of a team with depth where the emphasis will no longer be to give the ball to him and hope. He's had that pressure for long enough. I thought a couple of seasons ago that we might see him kick on but in fairness, I think that pressure limited him. These are potentially exciting times and with Selhurst fully and vocally back behind him, I think we may see him back to his dazzling best.

As to why we haven't seen him taking corners, I'm not convinced he would be that good with a dead ball.

Wilf may be a stunning footballer but he's hardly the most articulate person on the planet and, in the sense of speaking from his heart, he seems to me to be far more honest than someone who blames someone else's contribution to our longest stay in the top flight in our history for his frustrations.

I'd suggest that those comments are just him mouthing his own relief at finally having a new approach, system and team mates which liberate him rather than him "having a dig".

After all what, exactly, has he got to gain from "having a dig" at Roy?
The answer is of course, exactly... nothing.
Excellent post.

I understand that there have been discussions with Wilf about a contract extension and offering him the captaincy. But having now given it to Macca I would imagine that it would be difficult to take it away again.

JimmyMac didnít finish the Spurs game wearing the arm band. Fairly sure Luka did.

Could be wrong.

He lacks self discipline on the pitch. Its clear he has his heart in the right place, but weve seen him be too petulant too often to be a captain IMO

Being made captain often gives a player a sense of discipline.

I play a sport at a reasonable level and have had some right strops with refs in the past. One coach came in and made me team captain and after that I was much more disciplined.

It might not be long before he is. With Ward and McArthur slightly older and close in terms of appearances for cpfc then Wilf would be next in line. And once Ferguson and Eze are back in the first XI then I expect Zaha to be the skipper.

But Luka looks unlikely to play regularly.

Also, Ward finished the game as captain vs Liverpool.

It wonít matter. McArthur wonít be captain when he is not on the pitch. Hope we are not bitter that Wilf wonít sign a new contract. I completely understand why from his point of view , when he has a chance of sorting a move to a top champions league club in 16 months time on a free, that he is choosing not to sign. But his loyalty and service to us is not in doubt.

I think he will play better if he is given the responsibility.
