I've always thought Harry, he is so naturally talented at Quidditch and I think he'd be a good captain. I seriously doubt Ron will, not after only one year on the team. If Harry doesn't get it this year, I reckon he will in 7th year (unless he is HB and they feel like giving Ron something).

I think it's going to be Katie Bell, she'd be a seventh-year as of HBP and it seems to make sense somehow. She and Harry are the two people who will be left over from Oliver Wood's heyday, it'll be better if one of them is made captain, and since the position seems to (as per what I've seen so far) go to the seniormost person on the team, Katie will be captain since she's been on the team as long as Harry (barring the time he got banned). Also, she's worked with all the new entries to the team- Kirke and Sloper, who I think will be staying on, Ginny- she'd be best equipped to tutor her in Chaser tactics if she does try out and get on the team, and Ron (Harry'd played only one game with him in it, Katie's had three).
If Harry does become Quidditch Captain, it won't be till his seventh year. That's what I think.

Do you really think the new beaters will stay on, they were hopeless. With luck someone else will take an interest and join up to replace them, and they'll be actualy almost good.

Here's something interesting.

Scholastic Online Chat Transcript
In your first book there is a secret message on the Mirror of Erised. Are there any other secret messages throughout the book that we should be watching for?
Not secret messages of that type, but if you read carefully, you'll get hints about what's coming. And that's all I'm saying!

Make of it what you will.

I think that neither Ron nor Harry will be captain next year, Katie Bell has earned the nod, and I think that McGonagall in particular chooses those who arn't star players per se, but rather captains that have energy, enthusiasim and a personality that all can unite under.

Harry might be too much of a "name" to be captain.

I think however when Katie graduates in Book Seven, Ron will be Captain.

Bringing up the point about katie working with all the new kids is pretty good. MAybe that will be the deciding factor. Maybe harry will be and he will let ron help himalot so he doesn't get left out. I just can't see someone captain after one year on the team

I think it will be someone in 6th year..if its a 7th year than we have to pick a nrew captain in book 7 so it seems easier to make it either harry or ron and since ron is so new to the team my vote goes to harry

Definitely either Harry or Katie. I think they would both make really good captains. Katie's got the disadvantage of only having one year left, and Harry's got the disadvantage of being too busy with Voldemort stuff. But where it goes from there, I have no idea. =P My gut feeling is that it will go to Harry, but I think Katie's a strong possibility.

I know that not that many people really consider Ron as a possibility anyway, but JKR pretty much said in the World Book Day chat that Ron wouldn't be captain (at least not in HBP):

bibwhang: Will Ron ever get on the Gryffindor quidditch team?
JK Rowling replies -> Well, he's already there! The question is, whether the new Quidditch Captain will allow him to stay!


So...Harry or Katie...

I honestly hope that either Katie or Harry should be the captain.

If Katie will be the captain, then Harry should be the captain during his 7th year.
Unfortunately the boy is going to have so much to deal with that he might not have time for Quidditch!

As much as I like Ron, I don't want him to be the captain, ever. He really doesn't deserve it. It wouldn't be fair.

I don't know it sounds as though Ron did something quidditch goalies have never done in a match that is to stop every quaffle from getting through. That is a feet in itself because in the quidditch book I don't think it mentions any match where one side scores and the other ends the match with zero and that is from a professional stance not just a school match for the quidditch cup.

Ron did enough to help the team win the cup in the end.

I dont know what you mean about having too much to do...Voldemort might be back but i dont hink he will be fighting him every day of the school year? Ususally he comes at the end of the books which I think would leave all year open. Obviously he will be thinking and worrying about Voldemort but not to the extent it fills his every waking moment! Seems Harry will have plenty of time to worry about quidditch.

Where did this come from? First years are never permitted to try for a team, in ANY capacity. Harry waas the only exception in many years. Now, who would make a captain? Let's see... Captain is supposed to be a good leader... Harry. Captain must be a good, preferably a "natural" player... Harry. Captain should have experience in the game... Harry or Katie. I know, many say that he did not grow with the game and therefore is supposed to know less about the theory, but come on, he is reading and talking about Quiddich almost his every waking moment. And if an active player in 5 years with earnest effort can not gain all the knowledge there is ton gain, what advantage will come from childish fantasies of being a famous player? Anyone here trained little kids in baseball? how much a peewee (who was born to a baseball fanatic father) knows about the real game or can be a captain of one? There is a huge difference between fan's knowledge of trivia of the game and the real field skill.

So, if the person/people making the decision are interested in Gryffindor performance in Quiddich, there can be only ONE candidate - Harry. But Katie MIGHT become a captain by default, if Harry can not play and /or be a captain by force-major circumstances, is injured, or the Umbridge's ban holds.

She's not off fighting Voldemort.
There shouldn't be any reason for not having quidditch at Hogwarts in Book 6. In fact, it'll probably be one of the best things that the students can do in order to take their minds of the comming Second War.

Personally, I believe that there are both pros and cons for Katie and Harry both becoming captains. In Katie's instance, it is her last year at Hogwarts, she has been playing quidditch longer than Harry, and she doesn't have to worry as much about Voldemort. On the other hand, as other people have been saying, Katie does seem a lot more quiet and reserved than Harry, something you can't always have when you're in a leadership role.

In Harry's instance, he obviously has the confidence and leadership skills that Katie doesn't have, plus he is respected enough in the Gryffindor house that the team would actually listen to him and take to his advice. He is, after all, Harry Potter. But on the other side, he will probably worrying a great deal in the next two years about Voldemort. With the knowledge that he's the only one who can kill him, this can distract him from his Quidditch play, just as much as it can distract him from Voldemort.

On this subject, I'm dead even. Both Katie and Harry deserve to be the captain in their own ways.

I don't know why people think Harry shouldn't have any time for acting as Quidditch captain, he isn't really busy seeing he isn't a prefect and does not have to worry about nights long detentions with Umbridge anymore. Don't even know if the DA will continue next year.

I think they should finally credit Harry for what he has done for Hogwarts, the wizarding world and the other students and give him some sort of recognition. They didn't give him the prefect position while he clearly deserved it.

I say Ron should be captain. It is his dream after all, and he is very knowledgeable about quidditch despite only being keeper for one year. Harry shouldn't be because, given what their position entails, the seeker shouldn't be the captain. They just don't do enough within the actual game. Cedric was the captain of Hufflepuff and they sucked hard. And as for Kate Bell, give me a break. Has she even had any dialogue in the books?

Hufflepuff sucks all the time but they did manage to win against Griffindor when Cedric was captain, yes due to circumstances but still a good victory. And you should earn being a captain not just because you dream about it.

Well, what has anyone else done to earn it? Harry got his face busted and Katie Bell's just been there longer.

No, Katie has not been there longer, she started at the same time. And Harry is an exceptional seeker (aknowledged by an international player) and an outstanding leader. Gryffindor won every game since Harry joined, except that with dementors and when Harry was not participating. He studies theory as hard as practice, and works hard on the team. It was generally accepted that the Gryffindor quiddich cup was, to a large extend, Harry's achievement (yes, the last year too, it was the first win that has covered for Ron's problems, as much as Ginny's efforts). So, what does Ron have to show? ONE half-decent game to his name? It was Ginny who won, anyway.

I think Ginny will be the new QUidditch caption, shes good at more than one position, she is a good people person, and she is good with authority.

Ginny would make a great captain. She grew up with 6 brothers, she had to learn to be tough.
But she hasn't even been on the team for one year.

It will definitely be Harry or Katie. Or at least I hope so.
