With William Gallas and Kolo Toure missing tonight's game in Turkey through injury, Manuel Almunia will lead out the Gunners as captain in a surprise choice by Arsene Wenger.
The Spanish keeper has come far in his short time at Arsenal and being selected as Arsenal skipper will be the highest point of his career to date.
I believed that Cesc Fabregas would have been handed the armband in Gallas' and Toure's absence but that has not been the case. These days it seems the oldest player in the Arsenal side gets the captaincy through default!
Anyway, good luck Manuel!
Keep it Goonerish...........
