John Terry has been stripped of the England captaincy which means England will be looking for a new leader to take us into Euro 2012. Whether you agree with the decision to strip Terry or not is neither here nor there, let’s face it Terry is a twat anyway.
There is no doubt in my mind that if he was fit that Ledley would have been England captain a long time ago and if you ask me I think Capello will take him to the Euro’s anyway.
Scott Parker is my shout for captain, he has the pedigree and is a true leader on the pitch and in the changing room. Remember last season when Cartlon Cole said he reduced the West Ham team to tears with his inspiration half time team talk. There is no other man for the job, however I think he will be overlooked.
Rio has said he don’t want it but I fear we will take a step backwards and give it to Gerrard or Lampard just because of who they are, to be honest Gerrard is a good leader. However it’s time for a change and I feel Parker could captain the team from now and at least for another couple of years.
Scott Parker England captain, the right call?
