    All signs are pointing to us winning the league....

    When the time hopefully comes and we are presented with the trophy it’s normally the captain who lifts the trophy is it not?

    Coady in my eyes has been sensational in where Danny has hardly played and when he has apart from the goal against Bristol City at home and getting sent off against Bristol away then I’m struggling to think what he has done.

    I’d like to see Coady lift it on his own and not the double lift as Coady has been Nunos number 1 captain throughout the season.

    Thoughts....

    Tough one as I like both but if given on what they have given the club this season then Coady.

    Got to be both for me. It's not all about what a captain does on the pitch. So much more to been the club Captain. I think they both are vital to the teams bond.

    Unless Batth leaves in the summer I don’t see the captaincy being taken off him as it might cause dressing room problems like when Mick did it

    Neither of them if you ask me. Ikeme should be the one to lift the trophy.

    You can bet this has already been discussed between the players.

    It’ll be Ikeme all being well, which will be fantastic.

    I'd love for that to happen, we haven't had many updates regarding Ikeme's treatment but fingers crossed he can lift the trophy in May.

    Ikeme would be a lovely gesture. I'd either like him to present it to the captains or for them to present it to carl.

    Watching the subs warming up on Saturday, it's clear the respect all the players have for Danny.

    He may not have played as much as Coady, but he probably does just as much work influencing players off the pitch.

    That said, it would be harsh on Coady for Danny to take all the glory.

    I'd want to see a double lift.

    It’ll be a double lift

    Kemes idea is a nice thought, and he’ll get a big cheer if he’s there to lift it, but got to be the captains to do it first

    Both for me, I know what you all mean bout Kemes doing it, and I would absolutely love him to be there, but if I was him I wouldn’t want to take anything away from the guys who had played all season

    Personally I’d have Coady do it, however I see both doing it.

    I don’t see Batth here next season and no matter who we sign, providing he’s due to play I’d make Coady my next captain.

    His leadership skills are second to none in the club IMO.

    Fair point mate, but this is a decent hypothetical question.

    Thats a fair point Netherton, in which case it has to be Coady for me

    Coady to be presented with it, who holds it up, takes the tumultuous applause, he then immediately hands it to Danny.
    They then both walk over to Carl and together they present it to him. There will not be a dry eye in the stadium, and you thought the applause and cheers were loud before. You wait.

    That's my dream anyway.

    I doubt Nuno would allow a discussion like this until it mathematically certain..........In the words of the prophet 'one game at a time'

    I don't think that will happen (Coady lifting the trophy alone).
    Lifting the trophy with the club captain is done out of respect to the club captain and I don't mind that.
    Danny ain't the best defender and was thrown in at the deep end when he was made captain too early, which I believe affected his development but he's served us well and Nuno didn't strip him of the captaincy so he must be doing his bit as club captain behind the scenes. Also he's a good lad and seems to be taking not playing on the chin and everyone will respect him in the dressing room for just getting on with it

    I would imagine that as club captain, Batth will lift the trophy. Though it would be nice if Ikeme was involved.

    Knowing Danny, he won’t want to take all the plaudits either, think it will be a joint effort or a threesome :)

    It’ll be both.
    Team captain and club captain.

    What I believe is we should ask for special dispensation from the league to give Ikeme a medal.

    It would be funny if the kit man stepped up to lift it. Wasn't he the one who accepted Santo's manager of the month award?
