Can't believe how poor our options are for AFC skipper this year. Emery clearly still isn't sure himself which is pretty worrying.

Make Xhaka the captain. Based on recent Arsenal history, the captain invariably gets injured or loses form thereby becoming a non-playing captain or get transferred out.

Xhaka is the most senior member now. And then Sokratis followed by ozil and Lacazette.

Ozil. He's got so much talent maybe giving him the armband will wake him up and that would be huge for our season.

Despite what people think of him, Ozil is a world class footballer and I still believe he can contribute if he can get his mind right.

Bellerin for me. He gets it. The Adams, Terry, Keane captains are from days gone by

Gwen & Liz: Captains of Hairspray

I think its symptomatic of
1. We lack true natural defenders
2. The squad still remains unbalanced (all the major quality is in the front three) Guendouzi the only excpetion but still too young to be consistent



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

David Luiz all day long.

He's skippered Brazil before and giving him the armband might just be that little bit of extra responsibility he needs to lead by example and keep the mistakes to a minimum.



Albert Einstein once said: "Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."

I voted for Luiz, aware of problems with that, but at least he is determined to win

Quite a spread of votes then really. Feel sorry for Emery

Agree shocking set of candidates really.

Think I'd go for Bellerin or Aubameyang.

Bellerin for Flava's reasoning, Aubameyang because I think he's looked more focused and determined this season and if he can maintain that then our chances of achieving something this season increase greatly.

Willy 06 September, 2019 22:34
Yep, I was the one voting for Auba. He talks to the media a lot and seems to take an interest in younger players like AMN. David Luiz could play himself in though
