Scott Parker picked as England Captain, why not Gerrard???


Is it me or should Mr Gerrard of been the first choice, i think its actually quite awful... Parker hasnt got the history and inspiration that Gerrard posses... Is it just me or does he deserve the captaincy

Steven Gerrard should be made Captain, he has the passion and leadership qualities. Jack Wilshire would be a captain for the future,still young and learning his trade.

Why Wilshire everyone remember the guy has played only one season at top level!!! Jesus christ... 1 season and he should be England captain

I wanted almost anyone but Parker, because I felt so sick after the media jerking him off so hard the last year. All the diplomatic generic tweets Ive heard from football journos the last year.. eww. SO basically I dont give a fck, Im just tired of Oliver Holt and his kind.

There is very few england internationals that do have any experience with an armband- but i think that is a good thing for England--- fresh approach

Wilshere is a great player but he needs the experience of being made captain of the Arsenal before promotion to the England armband

@machine44 I have actually never said that Gerrard should be captain. Just that Parker shouldnt. I can see several players more suited to it.

Well wilshere is out - i think we all agree that he will get the armband- so if parker shouldnt and gerrard shouldnt, and wee jack is out, then who else is there?

I dont think Gerrard should be captain? I think Wilshere should, but I dont think Parker should either

Parker is a very professional player, but so is every single player.. Just because he hasn't been in the papers for anything controversial doesn't mean he's perfect, I want Wilshere as captain tbh but Gerrard is still a better option than Parker

Well obv it matters what they do in the matches, but scotty has been so consistant over last year and half- and is more committed than any other player in that squad

Does it not matter what they do in the matches or just playing in them then?

Should be decided on the fact that for the last year and half parker has actually played probably double the matches gerrard has and is far more professional than gerrard as well

So captaincy should be decided by form?

I have to agree with machine44 that keepers are not the best pick for captain. A captain needs to lead from midfield. Period
