Hey it's Svyato coming in with a brand new article. With the new Premier League season I think it's time for Chelsea to have a new captain. I was always a critic when it came to John Terry. For a few years settled down, but when he missed that kick and it cost us Champions League glory I returned to criticizing him again. Today I will hit you up with an article that gives you other and better candidates than John Terry for Captain.
Frank Lampard has been one of the big faces of Chelsea for quite some time now. He is the man that delivers 20+ goals every season. He is Chelsea's heart and soul and I think he should be called captain.
Lampard is one of the best players in the English Premier League as well as probably the World. I wouldn't say he's top five, but the man is up there. Lampard is the guy you can always count on for a big goal when needed. Examples? UEFA CL, Chelsea down 1-0 Lampard strikes and ties up the game. Just last night when Chelsea was tied he scored and gave them the league. Then again, it isn't exactly hard to miss a penalty now is?
Lampard is a perfect candidate for the captaincy.
Does he have his temper issues? Yes, but don't we all. Didier Drogba is a very talented forward. He's a great scorer and can occasionally provide assists. Drogba is also the guy that won't back down from a challenge. As we've seen in the past. Whether it's slapping a guy right across the face or scoring a goal when needed he can get it done.
Why should he be captain? For the same reason every other captain out there is. Or something like that (laugh).
Jokes people, jokes. Shevy won't be captain. Despite his new hair.
Well why not? He's already captain of Germany's international team. And some people may look at his running thing with the ref as a bad thing. I see it as a good thing. It shows his drive and his determination not to lose. This man can score, he can pass, and he can plain contribute. I would be proud to call him captain.
Why is he better than Terry? Because he didn't miss a penalty that cost Chelsea the game (laugh). Nah, but seriously Ballack would make a way better captain.
We all know that unlike in hockey, in soccer we can have goalies as captains. For years Cech has kept Chelsea in matches. He's the back bone of the team, and despite some shaky games he is still one of the best goalies in the World.
He can make the big save when needed. For example, Community Shield game, he stopped two shots to help them get the title. Big pressure situation? Yeah! So as you see the man is captain quality.
Do you think Terry should stay captain? Or do you think one of these players would be a better fit? Well you can tell me below.
