Laca hinted that Ramsdale, White, Gabriel and Tierney are captain material and then recently, Odegaard has joined that list given his experience also with Denmark…
Fan favourites Saka and ESR are also being added to the conversation given their recent performances…
For me, one thing is sure and if Laca leaves, Holding should definitely be amongst the club-s vice-captains. He has a good mentality and has been at the club for a while…Now there is a question mark about Xhaka given his past but he is also respected internally so maybe a vice-captain role is not to be ruled out…
But the one player that does not come into the discussion at the moment is Partey, which may be a bit worrying…Tomy either but it is more understandable for Tomy.
I believe the captains should either play as CB or DM so for me, Gabriel or White could be the best options especially Gabs once he improves his English.
So my leadership group would be: Gabs (captain), Ramsdale, Tierney, Holding and Xhaka.
What about you?
Emily Smith Rowe should be out next Captain becasuse he is hard working and able
On my side, I think it may add undue pressure on ESR and Saka at this stage in their career so for me, I d let them enjoy their footie.
They are already fan’s favourites and hard working effective players and they lead on the pitch with their willingness to do well so…
I think we are all not talking about Partey he seems to be have all the qualities as a captain. Even in his national team he comes as a deputy captain and I think he is one of the best experienced players in the arsenal team.
Yeah it is true but he is just not yet seeming to (i) lead our midfield and (ii) finding his place/voice within our squad as a potential leader…
I am hoping that Partey becomes our key midfield player – he has the talent and potential to do so. I am just not sure why it is not happening yet
I was trying to think of something funny about you not including Ode in your final list of potential captains but then I thought again and couldn’t help but agree with you.
Hard question. I only see Xhaka as true captain material. But if he said no I’d have to go with Ramsdale although I dont know how good a communicator he is and I dislike GK’s as captains.
Saka or ESR for me I find a captain should atleast ne at the club a few years
Nice post, RC
Agreed with VP, Xhaka is true captain material.
Gabriel can become one, if he will have a good command of English. Tierney is fine as he is an undisputed starter, but he seems to be too kind of a guy to do that, but if Xhaka cannot make it, then Kieran could be the next best choice so far.
Maybe in a couple of years Ode could become (prove) captain material too, but he’ll be competing with Gabriel by that time.
Ben White or Martin Odegaard for me.
No ESR in squad hmm
