There is some debate in the modern game as to just how important a captain really is.

Back in the day, it was key to have an on-pitch organiser. The manager's general - someone to lead the side. But as has been proved in recent years, it's less important than ever to have just one leader with an armband. You need a few. And even then, their role isn't as important as it used to be.
