    The only thing that matters in this game is orange and red stars.

    Take your best player, your playmaker and your GK

    I usually have a DMC or an MC as captain, and usually it's the guy that plays the most games.
    And I have the GK(s) listed too in case my actual captain isn't playing.
    Expressed above is my own opinion. Your results may vary.

    I choose the player with the best form as captain. But I just alter the order occasionally. Not sure if there is any effect.

    I'm with ya on that; after following Terry as the captain that I've looked up to for my whole life; it seems weird to me to give the captain to a striker or attacking player. My CB is my first choice captain; with GK and then CM being the next two choices

    Not sure the degree of effect of captaincy is to the match result, but I do observe a bad run when certain players are captain and good performances when another is handed the armband. I usually do guess work - trial and error. If the team is winning i stick to the captain.

    I usually choose in this order - Best player (not highest quality), Age, Seasons with team.

    I usually give it to my best player in terms of form and quality.. You may try older players too but I reckon it does not make any difference haha
