IAN Holloway has admitted the Millwall captaincy is up for grabs.
Holloway has yet to decide who will skipper the Lions next season but revealed Nicky Bailey and David Forde are in the running.
Paul Robinson and Danny Shittu shared the armband last year but neither defender finished the 2013-14 campaign as a regular in the side.
Alan Dunne, who led Millwall on an eight-game unbeaten run to ensure Championship survival, is also a contender.
Holloway said: "Whoever my captain is needs to be fit and play a lot of the games – captains don't really talk that much when they're not playing.
"Robbo and Danny have both been captain but they didn't play at the end of last year which is a strange scenario. They are great lads and I'm sure they'll accept whatever I do.
"Bailey probably does more talking than anybody else. He loud and he's a good organiser and that's especially important in midfield because most of them are far too quiet.
"I want a team full of captains really, not just one. It's a small thing in football – it's not like in cricket where the captain helps pick the team and the tactics.
"In a good team you've got to have lots of communication and that's what we're working on at the moment.
"Bu we do need to have a voice in the right place.
"At the moment I'm looking for leaders to step forward. You could argue that David Forde should be captain but I'm not sure he can make people hear him from our own penalty area.
"Having said that, I might make him club captain and then pick someone else to be my team captain – I really don't know yet.
"For long periods of last year we were leaderless on the pitch and that's down to the players, not the manager.
"No team should have be rudderless and they should take responsibility themselves.
"That's what I tried to say when I first came in – the group was hiding behind excuses, the group didn't do enough, the group needed to step forward and the group needed to be honest.
"I'm looking for people to do that for me next season."
