How we don't have a thread dedicated to the midfield general currently seems a bit odd, so I decided to start one. Many people questioned him and his ability last summer, as well as previously, but judging by how he has shined recently against some of the best talent in the world, one would have to say that when healthy, he might be one of our best ever. His passing, his composure and ability to dribble out of danger is unrivaled in our pool. His midfield command and motor/fitness is second to none. You can't say enough about his leadership and professionalism. I understood previously why JK made Clint the captain, but I can't see how we could take it back from MB after these displays. Not that it is a huge deal, but MB embodies exactly what I would want to see in a captain, and is the example that all of our players should strive to become. I hate to sound all rah rah about the whole thing, but it has just become painfully obvious that we're watching something special develop. However you feel about ths subject, the guy deserves to have his own personal thread on the N and A. Feel free to merge if there is already a dedicated thread but I couldn't find it.
