Earlier on this season he took Rondon off and put a winger upfront.I can only guess it was in case Rondon got injured. Why he kept Rondon on the whole game is something I just can't understand.
Worse manager than Benitez?....Silva, Koeman, second season Martinez, and theres a case for Moyes and a few others. Captain? Coleman probably one of the best. Some were a bit nondescipt. Not really had many outstanding skippers since Labby until Coleman, but Billy Wright comes to mind as very poor. Some were skipper simply because they were the best player...Bally, Vernon etc.
I was thinking more of a winning mentality rather than who has won what, I go back to the 80s when we had Reid Bracewell Steven sharp southall etc they had a winning mentality and hated losing, it then reflected in what they ended up achievingMeh we just need good players.
'Winners' is an overused term. We have Delph who's won a few titles, we have Digne who has won things with PSG and Barca, DCL scored the winner in a youth World Cup final, Richarlison has just won Olympic gold and scored a crucial pen in a Copa America final.
Good players win things. Helped by good managers.
