Every time i watched him play i couldn't understand why he's a captain, maybe personality wise he has that charisma, but he is not a leader at all, neither leading by example, nor by words and motivation. I guess as a stand-in for Vidic though, there isn't really anyone else capable or willing to take on that role, or has his experience. Still, not my preferred choice at all
Far from lazy, but pretty much agree with the other things.
He is the captain because he was probably the most consistent player in our team in 2008-2010, he was so good at that time.
Defense value is OK while looking at other fullbacks, MENT needs ~5 point drop.
