Who should be Arsenal’s captain?

By 1970’s Gooner

There are rumours surfacing that Gallas has quit the captaincy. Irrespective if they are true or not Arsene Wenger should strip him of the captaincy, drop him from the first team squad and off load him in the fast approaching transfer window.

What he has revealed about the tensions within the dressing room is something that goes on in any dressing room of any team up and down the country form the Premier League to the Sunday park league.

But there was no need to go public about it.

Johan Djourou and Kolo Toure should be the ones along Silvestre to play in the centre of the defence.

But who should be the new captain?

Almunia, Fabregas, Toure and Clichy are in my opinion the main candidates for the job. You can vote for your choice in the poll we have set up.

Clichy is young and emotional - he was in tears after the Spurs game - but is the right type of character. Gallas could never play with the first team again though. Are we really prepared for that?

For now it has to be Almunia. He's vice captain and should be captain tomorrow. Certainly not a long term choice but a month or two of someone who seems to be genuinely liked by everyone will take the heat out of the situation and give a bit of leeway before appointing someone properly.

i do reate gallas as a defender he can play any were but the fact he has negative effect on the team,yes its treu some of the things he has siad,arsenal do need have amore fight spirit but i just think the down to fact fab needs a rest and they missing flamani,the fact is gallas ahs never been the type to put his arm round the younger players and encourage them and thats what captain does,they do need to change things up in midfield a little bit cesc does need a break and should change the partnership maybe

Fabregas is too young. Clichy is too soft. Toure lacks leadership quality and Alumina just does not have enough experience as a regular starer.

Get Gilberto back and reinstate him as captain. He loves the club, works hard for the team and well respected by his team mates.

Fabregas is the right choice. Alumunia is a good bloke but is useless for his role as a keeper. We need to sign that guy who plays for Wales (Keeper). Saw him against Germany. He was awasome. Galls has to play of course we pay his wages.
