Gallas will be kept on as Arsenal skipper this season and I believe that this is the right decision.
Many Gooners are calling for Fabregas or Toure to be installed as Arsenal captain. Although I understand why, I still feel that Gallas is the right man for the job at the present time.
We are fortunate that we have Fabregas or Toure as possible future captains. They are Arsenal through and through, and Le Boss will have a difficult decision to make in the future when Gallas is relieved of his duties.
Gallas made mistakes last season but the important thing is that he will learn from them and be better for it this season.
It cant have been easy for him succeeding Henry in the role and lets not forget it was his first season as a captain.
I felt he led a young side very well and inspired them. He is a winner and that attitude rubbed off on the side around him.
Lets not forget that when Arsenal were top of the league last season people were saying that giving Gallas the armband was an inspired choice. I think so too. Its only when we began to struggle the appointment was questioned.
Gallas is the leader of the side but cannot be held responsible for Arsenal throwing the title away last season. The whole team managed to do that and I doubt even the Maldini's and Terry's of this world could have stopped what happened last season.
I say get behind Gallas. Toure and Fabregas will get their chance one day, its their destiny's to be the leaders of our club.
Until then we have Gallas and that's alright with me.
Keep it Goonerish..........
