Nigel Reo-Coker has said he would love to take on the Villa's armband full time this season.
Former England U21 and Wet Spam captain led Villa out against Liverpool ironically, in the one match Barry missed last season, and with Barry 'almost' at Liverpool, the captain competition seems to be between Hokey and Laursen.
Speaking to the official site, Mr Motivator said:
'To be handed the captaincy would be a real honour.'
However Hokey Cokey knows that Martin O'Neill may well change things around during our friendlies, and a solid decision on our next captain will not come until much closer to the season. Potentially, not until after the Intertwobob either.
'We haven't really spoken about that. We don't know what the situation is over what is going to be happening or who's going to be captain.
'I led out the side at Liverpool and we did really well that night and did enough to win. For me I am already used to playing with the weight of expectation on my shoulders. It is nothing new to me.
'I did it at West Ham and I was under-21 captain. Being captain is a declaration and regardless of whether I have the armband or not I will still be as vocal as I always am and be as determined to win and aggressive as I always have and will be.'
