 Manchester United

FA yearbooks from the 1980s & 1990s credit Bobby Moore with captaining England on 21 April 1970, but the yearbooks from the 1970s and other sources give the captaincy rightly to Charlton.  Admiration for Moore led to an outburst of historical revisionism which gave him the additional captaincy he needed to have one more than Billy Wright's 90.  Charlton was not merely an honourary or ceremonial captain the night of his 100th cap.
