Who Should Be Villa Captain?

Who Should Be Villa Captain?

Vital Villa asked, in a poll suggested by fallenbranches, who should be Villa's captain for the new season?

58% said Gareth Barry and 27% went for our current skipper Olof Mellberg.

The rest was split between Hendrie or somebody else - both with 6%, Gavin McCann with 2% and Gary Cahill with 1%.

Our latest poll, suggested by Villain of the North, asks if Doug should be given a role at Villa Park once we get new owners.

Olof for captain...agreed Barry is in the best form out the two but when Olof gets his form back there is no one else I would rather have at the back....and he was loyal to us when there was speculation one of the big boys could be after him. CAVE MAN for captain.

Mellberg is not vocal enough to be captain, out of the current crop of players that will be regulars in the team i suppose it should be Barry but who knows who MON is going to sign before the deadline, maybe he has a player in mind who he wants to bring in as captain....?

Off topic but any chance of getting rid of that hiddeous pic of O Leary on the banner, could also replace Herbert with a much more eye appealing picture in preparation for the new owners!!

Has O'Neill actually indicated that he is looking to change the captain or is this all speculation? Mellberg would be gutted if he was stripped of the captaincy. If he gives it up then fine, but why rock the boat?

simonwoburn - i agree hideous o'leary picture must go, I don't want to see his face again. I still say its totally not important who is club captain, you need 11 leaders on the pitch, anyone who doesn't give 100% should be out anyway. Just because someone is vocal doesn't mean you will not listen to them if they aren't captain. Its a joke, captaincy won't change anything, if you believe that you're a fool.

Totally agree. Apart from leading the team out and calling heads or tails the captaincy isnt worth the armband its written on.

As a life-long Aston Villa and Northern Ireland supporter I feel that Aaron Hughes is an ideal candidate for captain. He has led N.I. very well and remains a central figure for club and country. I would also like to mention the pride in our N.I. contingent. Our captain (Hughes) and best player (Davis) are part of the Villa team - and now our manager is from Ulster!! I now wear my Villa shirt with pride at Villa AND Windsor Park!!
