Going for ‘Bold’ … – Does consultation tend to reinforce a cautious, safe view of alternatives?
Just imagine. A major sporting event! One team, winning for much of the match, finds itself behind with only two minutes to go. It wins a penalty. Converting a penalty secures an honourable draw. The bolder option is to kick for position and the chance of outright victory if a subsequent score comes about. The crowd is deafening. You have 10-20 seconds to take a decision. Captaincy can be a tough task!
