FC Dallas lost their captain this year after defender Duilio Davino departed from the team.

As is often a big debate in Europe and especially the UK, naming a captain and what position they hold can take hours of discussion before a choice is met.

FC Dallas Head coach Schellas Hyndman is very vocal about his selection procedure for 2009.

"I have three people in mind and I think all three would be very good," he said. "What I would like to do is look at the three through the next week of training. Then, it will be my decision and my decision only to select the player that I think would be the best representative of this team."

Hyndman also indicated that last year's choice may have been wrong, he continued: "To be able to carry the armband is a simple job for any captain.

"You put it on and you get recognition. But there are a lot of things that I need to ask the captains to do. I thought last year, there were some issues on the team that if we had the right leader or right person wearing the armband with the communication ability and the respect of the players, some of those issues might never have developed."

FC Dallas were unable to make the play-offs in 2008, Dallas fans will be watching closely this season to see if Hyndman can get it right for the team this year.
