    But that means he'll be starting as our DM.
    (Original post by Peggles_*)
    No new DM then? :sad:

    No it's doesn't. It means he's a natural leader on and OFF the pitch. Being captain is more than the 90mins, alot goes on behind the scene fans don't even realise.

    Wenger knows his players better than any fan and he has made the right decision.

    I trust Wenger is working on a DM

    It is actually pretty rare that the club captain of a top side isn't the first name on the team sheet...Seems to happen with Arsenal often though.

    Hopefully Wenger will buy a DM and Arteta will end up like Kehl at Dortmund. Captain but almost never plays.

    Fair enough, point taken. Still very much the minority in the top 10 or so sides in Europe.

    Speaking of Dortmund, anyone seen this:

    Iker Casillas? Ask yourself why is he still captain being being a sub for the last two seasons. Arteta's influence in the team is so obvious. I wouldn't be surprised if he hasn't been giving talks at half time or at training. Arteta deserves it for his service to Arsenal, he's been de facto captain for the last 2 years now.

    I'm confident Wenger will bring in a new DM

    There are other leaders at Arsenal who can lead on the pitch. Mert, Ramsey, Theo, Wilshere. Arteta and Mert are is the best leadership team.

    I'm not questioning Arteta's leadership, just his footballing ability (read: legs). If Wenger brings in a DM I'm more than happy for him to be captain, I just don't think he'd make him the club captain and then not play him. It's not Wenger's way of doing things.

    We don't but it becomes the natural reaction as you would expect your captain to start week in, week out. The only reason Vermaelen didn't was because he wasn't good enough to displace either Per or Koscielny.

    It's quite cool looking, not as good a dinner plate as the Eridivisie title mind.

    are we even linked with any CMs anymore, Carvalho rumours have died. Don't mind if Arteta is captain as long as he's not playing 38 games a season for us.
    Now you know how we've felt for the last 8 years :sad:

    Arteta gets the armband, why did anyone expect anything different? He was the vice-captain last season, and it respects the chain of command we have had. Per has essentially been promoted regardless... no need to make a song and dance about it.

    Good performance, but we still need to improve the midfield area and central defence. I am not so convinced by LB either, we are not top top class there.

    I would give you a round of applause but that would mean your comment was worthy of one.

    This is not a real City by far, the most idiotic thing we can do is assume they were even trying or match sharp. We need to strengthen. We need more power in the team.
