Arsenal - Gallas Gifted Armband
So, we have a new captain, not everyone's personal choice, but few could argue that Billy G isn't a winner.
Arsene Wenger named William Gallas as captain yesterday, and it's not a move that surprised me very much after seeing Billy don the captains armband for every pre-season game he played in.
Gallas was gifted the honour despite quiet man, Gilberto, playing the role of skipper (and very well may I add) for the large part of last season.
Since the retirement of Tony Adams, Monsieur Wenger seem to have developed a nasty habit of choosing captains who go on to leave after spending a couple of seasons of flirting with, shall we say, more glamorous clubs.
While I'm not doubting Gallas' leadership credentials, I just hope that Wenger's choice was based on that very thing rather than pandering to another media whore's massive ego.
Good luck in the role Billy.
