It's been confirmed that Cesc Fabregas is the man to lead Arsenal into a new era and while it's going to a popular decision amongst Gooners I call for a little calm on the situation.
It is a difficult time for anyone to be captain of Arsenal. The team are struggling and there are a lack of leaders throughout the side. It's not going to be easy for Cesc.
We must give Fabregas time to grow into the role of skipper. Let's not put too much pressure on his shoulders and think he will become the messiah. I think he will prove to be a great captain if we allow him the time to develop into the job.
Hopefully this appointment of Fabregas will lift the players. He is clearly well liked by the squad and best of all he has a real affinity with Arsenal and us Gooners.
He has all the right ingredients to become an Arsenal legend. At the age of 21 he has a long time left in the game, hopefully he will spend that time with Arsenal and lead us into a golden era.
Obviously William Gallas will now find it difficult to remain at Arsenal. I hope that isn't the case. Regardless of what has happened, Gallas is still a world class defender and Arsenal are better off with him than without him.
Maybe the captaincy was a burden on William Gallas. The media and many Arsenal supporters never really took to Gallas being captain. We forget it was his first time in the role and he never endeared himself to Gooners with his sometimes extraordinary outbursts.
We may even see the best of Gallas now. He will be determined to prove people wrong, the pressure of being captain is now lifted from his shoulders, it may provide him with a new leash of life.
If Arsene Wenger is willing to offer Gallas an olive branch then so must we. If Gallas is to remain at the club then he needs to perform on the pitch and we need to put this sorry mess behind us.
Don't show Gallas hate, he might score an own goal.......Seriously though, the team needs us now and that means Gallas does too.
There is a bright future with Cesc as our figure head. Its the present that needs sorting, this may just lift the club.
Keep it Goonerish.................
