Would love Hector be a captain but he really don't look like a leader he always look calm and quiet on the pitch.
I mean if the choice is between a guy who came through the academy ranks or the guy who picks his nose when the opponent is getting into scoring position then I know who I'd rather pick.
Rob Holding should be captain, case closed
He’ll have to be a definite starter first. Bellerin is probably the only one in the first team who gets it, I believe.
Only issue is that he might have too much stuff going on away from the football pitch.
I'm no Xhaka advocate but he may have a shout at the armband.. He's got experience as a captain and he is fairly vocal on the pitch.
What leadership qualities has he displayed to be bestowed with this lofty appointment, but then again the captaincy has been passed around more than the tavern maid so why not...
Bellerin as captain, oh my, how the mighty have fallen.
I'd happily make him captain. He is articulate on and off the pitch. He understands Arsenal. He is also the driving force in the team. Not to mention if fit he is the first name on the team sheet. You don't have to be barking orders left right and centre. Bellerin is clearly a leader.
I disagree. Most of the best captains pull their teams in line at the right time through encouragment or a good old crapping out.
Fabregas for example was a great captain in terms of leading by example but when the team needed a rollicking he wasn't really ideal to give it. Per on the other hand berated Özil for not showing respect and it had an instant effect in the next game.
Terry would command his team to see out difficult games on a regular basis and it showed when he wasn't on the pitch in his later years.
Viera was vocal and took no crap from his teammates or anyone for that matter. We've missed him for more than a decade.
Gerrard, Keane, Puyol and Totti are all examples of great captains who did this...
Football has much more ego than it ever has. Egos need to be controlled.
Laughable, I know, but realistically who else is there? As a regular starter.. Xhaka has some experience.. Leno could be a good option IMO.
Bellerin has been one of my favourites here for a few years now, I wouldn't be frustrated if he got the captaincy & he's been here for a fair few years now which helps.
Fallen from what? For the previous manager, the captaincy was passed around like a blunt amongst a circle of friends.
So we just continue to treat it like this and move on then?
Saliba for captain
Love Hector tho
Edit: which mod has set it up so h-e-c-c-y gets changed to hector
Bellerin as captain? I'd rather give Claude the armband and a megaphone and have him shout orders from the stands.
I want Sokratis as captain but it will be Xhaka, Emery loves him. After them two only Holding and Laca have leadership qualities.
I don't really see that in Lacazette.
I just don't want Özil with the armband. Brings down the whole importance of captaincy.
