A little conversation between these 3 can very well mess with Erza's head enough making her doubt her actions so she'd lose. So you see I very much am aware of what manga I'm reading question is are you?
I find it odd how people are out right ignoring Kagura's vendetta which gives her more of a connection to Erza when compared to Minerva. As if she's going to fall first when Minerva is clearly the least important person in this fight plot wise. The focus on Sabertooth is going to be with Sting somehow beating someone he shouldn't be capable of not with Minerva who really has nothing at stake at this point.
I thought it was fairly obvious that Sting was made captain based on what happened in Sabertooth.
