    Paul Collingwood should be the captain in Tests and ODI's

    Seriosuly he is a really good captain as shown here in the T20 worldcup. He should be named captain for Tests and ODI's also

    Not been impressed. His batting and fielding have suffered and I think the field placings etc have been heavily influenced by the others in the side (eg KP)

    No,Strauss is a good test captain,end of.

    Can see a reason to give him the 50 over job because Lumb and Kieswetter could go as the openers to the World Cup.

    Not convinced that Strauss's record in our last two test series is a sacking offence.

    Strauss is not losing the Test captaincy. I'd argue whether he's actually the best choice, as I still think KP should be captain in all forms, but I don't think Collingwood's shown enough with his captaincy to warrant being given it in all forms, but he might as well have it in ODi's too. Strauss hasn't been too flash in ODi's with the bat. I'd actually rather see Pietersen as ODi and T20i captain, but that's not going to happen.

    Morgan, Moore, Joyce - possibly Taylor - Ramps and Tres as well of course

    Will have to wait and see I suppose. Morgan would have to have a pretty special season IMO. I know he's done well in ODIs and T20Is but his FC record is really nothing special, last season he was appalling and he's not yet proved himself at that standard.
    Would probably go for Joyce at this very moment in time.

    Haha, yeah, knowing Colly he'll play his way to within one innings away from being dropped and then pull a century out of his backside.

    Expecting Morgan to debut before the Ashes, tbh. Has ice water for blood & seems to thrive on the big stage.

    Not the sign of a great player but the surely the sign of a strong personality. I have been guilty of calling for the sacking of Collingwood from the team before, his style looks way short of test cricket when out of touch, but I respect his character and he is slightly better than people give him credit for.

    Not a good enough captain to be carried as a player

    Morgan's List A and ODi record before making his debut for England wasn't anything special either; remember seeing a post by Uppercut iirc pointing out how Morgan had only scored runs against terrible opposition. I guess it's the same in FC cricket. Morgan's clearly good enough for Test cricket though, has taken to ODi's for England like a duck to water. He's been exceptional, and he really should be next in line for the Test side. Don't think he'll play in the Ashes though. I think we're going to end up playing 5 bowlers, so either Wright, or maybe even Flintoff could end up in the XI. I see Fred being tempted back for 1 final Ashes tour if he's fit enough and gets a few games for Lancs.
