Is it time for Chris Barker to do the "club Captains" bit, and say... "I'm not good enough at this moment in time, and I am going to step aside" ?

Do you think he is in the side because he is the 'Club Captain'?

I like Barkers leadership, and his style of play "was" what held things together at the back...until his injury last season. Since then I don't think he has been the same. IMO I don't think we will see the same Chris Barker again (although I'd love to be proved wrong), but today showed, once again, that he is easily turned, and once turned, he is struggling big time. By 60 minutes he was dead on his feet.

I think it is only a matter of time before Ryan Creswell is partnering Mark Phillips at the back, and all barring injuries, I cant see an immediate return from that point.

What do the educated SZ peeps think?
