All Backing Gerrard For Captaincy


Recommended Posts

Jamie Carragher believes Steven Gerrard would be an inspirational captain for

 

England and is backing calls for new England head coach Steve McClaren to give the Reds ace the armband.

The people's favourites for the job appears to be between Gerrard and Chelsea skipper John Terry, but Carragher feels the Liverpool captain would be a worthy successor as England captain to David Beckham.

 

"The captain at international level has to be someone who is one of the first names on the team-sheet, has the respect of the other players and has good leadership qualities," insisted Carragher.

 

"Stevie and John Terry have got all that so it's going to be a really difficult decision. But from my own point of view, having played under Stevie at Liverpool and seen how well he captains the side, I'd like it to be him.

 

"When you look back at the way he played in Cardiff in the FA Cup Final and in Istanbul in the Champions League Final you'd have to say there can't be too many players around who are more inspirational than him."

Former England skipper Terry Butcher has called on new national boss Steve McClaren to make Steven Gerrard the new captain of England.

With David Beckham announcing his decision to stand down from the role on Sunday, the race for the armband looks to be between Gerrard and Chelsea's John Terry.

 

Butcher, however, believes it's the Liverpool man who should get the nod.

 

"I would give the armband to Gerrard and play him on the right, he's got the experience for it," he said today. "You could look at Terry as well but I would say Gerrard out of the two.

 

"Gary Neville maybe in the squad could be a temporary captain but you want to look ahead and get somebody there for the long term. You are looking at a captain for Euro 2008 and the World Cup in 2010 and it is Gerrard for me."

exactly thats why Terry should be captain of england he is a true leader look at chelsea all that money, all the big names nothing fazes him.

 

gerrard is a quality player without a doubt, he's liverpool captain as he is their best player and a homegrown player with strong feelings for the club.

 

but Terry has better leadership quality about him

i think it is a racist slur and if it is i believe Reg should be removed from the site... I dont know why everyone accepts Reg for the way he speaks and I have had enough of it.... It is people like Reg that give all us evertonians a bad name..Enough is enough... Egypt you are welcome to come on this site and give your views... dont be scared off by reg you keep posting.... I think gerrard would be a great captain but agree Terry is prob the best choice... I think a captain should lead from the back....

If I'm honest..England are 1-0 down with five minutes to go who do I think would push the team on hardest and be most likely to get a result...has to be Gerrard I'm afraid, no question. Incidentally Ahmed, who's the princess?

 

edit..if Reg is being racist something needs to happen, agreed but if the Prince says it means love who are we to argue?

John Terry is the only option with any real quality at leading and more importantly, inspiring 10 other men to produce their best. JT leads by example and creates confidence around him. Maybe my bias for defenders is coming through a bit, but a defender as captain has always been my preference.

 

All of the above is merely my own opinion.

The reason i dont think Gerrard should be captain is he isnt the same player for England as he is for the poo, he drifts in and out of games, he doesnt always perform as a captain should. Hes a fantastic skipper for the poo but he shouldnt be made England captain as he hasnt really done anything to warrant it.

That is because he is played out of position for England, I would like to see him on the right next match and either Carrick/Hargreeves in the centre with Lampard and cole down the left.

 

Either or for me with the other vise captain.

 

Terry received a second yellow so he would have missed the semi final, does that mean he get an international ban or does that just apply for the World Cup?

Lets kick racism out of football. Egypt you are entitiled to your views but i fear not a dedicated England supporter. JT should be captain if only because of the way he belts out our national anthem. I have to applaud the singing efort s of all the semifinalists in the world cup. It is a bonding exercse. ;)

Both Gerrard and Terry are natural leaders and hard men unlike media-whore ladyboy Beckham. Either will do a great job though Terry would just edge it for me. Beckham talked a good game and he's supposedly great at settling the younger new squad members but on the pitch he was the invisible man untill a set-play. The only time I saw him start shouting at the team was after he lost his marker for the Sweeden goal.

Terry as it is further aparent it is either one or the other rather than both, when thinking of midfield starting positons.

 

Therefore, clouding Gerrad's captaincy resume.

 

Great shame & cant see Mclaren turning that situation around.

Absolutely Not, Must be Gerrard as far as i'm concerned, He's the most influential and inspirational motivator in the premiership, then when he retires after the next world cup, Terry can have it.

Should be old enough and earned enough Caps by then.

Thats down to the managers formation and tactics, we didnt play to GERRARDS or ROONEYS strengths, so never got the best out of either of them.  :(
