Who was the best captain you ever played under? Hopefully you learned a lot from them. If you didn't you might still be making these mistakes:
- Ignoring advice. Advice is a funny thing. There is always plenty around when the team is doing well, but when you are getting soundly thrashed the captain is on his own. Despite this a good captain always takes on as much advice as he can (even if he has to seek it out). Everyone has an opinion and often it's different from your own so consider everything.
