What is this club coming to when Granit bloody Xhaka is most likely candidate for the captaincy for the upcoming season. The days of Adams and Vieira seem so far away.

I would have gone with Sokratis, but there weren't any really good choices to be fair. Lacazette was another name I would have put forward but who would have been your pick?

It’s about time that arsenal stopped being cowards and made Bellerin my captain.

Xhaka had 2 or 3 really decent games last season which is 2 or 3 more than in his first 2 years combined at the club. He also had another 2 or 3 where he wasn't awful so perhaps Emery wants to show the rest of the squad he rewards improvement :-) .
It's only paper talk at the moment so let's wait and see but if Xhaka should be our captain next season then it doesn't bode well for us fans or Emery himself who I doubt will get a 3rd season with us if we are no better than we were last season.

That's a good question about who I would want. There is no obvious contender which is another matter in itself. Given the players we have I would put Lacazette forward personally given his work rate and determination in the games he plays in.

I agree on Laca for captain. He's not the loudest or most vocal player, but he let's his play do the talking and leads by example with great work rate.

He has a good attitude as well, but a bit of a temper. Remember that mad elbow he landed on that poor lad's chin from Ostersunds?

Laca is no captain, vice captain maybe, but we know he probably isn’t going to start every week, he goes missing/ stroppy when it isn’t going quite his way. Yeah when he is good he is fantastic and puts a shift in. For me i’d be happy with 1 of 3 Sokratis, Bellerin or Xhaka, yeah Xhaka performamces are not the best, but he does show leadership on the pitch, he shouts, he instructs, he let's players know. I would still rather we sold him, but i do believe he is our beat option, he’s also the captain of swiss national side. must do somethinf right.
