    How about when he went AWOL in the 2nd leg. Easily the worst match he ever played for us. Couldn't make a successful pass; substituted.

    He isn't a leader and should never gave been given a prominent position.
    Judging by the scoreline, I'd say a lot of your players went AWOL that night. hahaha, this is so salty even by Arsenal fan's reactions it's unreal. You guys just can't accept that he did a decent job as a captain, certainly compared to someone like Gallas.

    Compared to gallas. Damn. Welbeck kinda decent compared to yaya whilst were at it.

    The fact you use gallas as a barometer shows how **** he was.

    it's hilarious how you consider Gallas a better captain than Fabregas.

    Fabregas was a sh*t captain no doubt. Went on strike to force a move away and went to watch a grand prix instead of being at a home game when injured. Still a better captain than Gallas though.

    Should never give a captaincy to anyone you suspect will hold your club to ransom by angling for a move once the season ends

    You mean like Van Persie? And Henry? and Vieria? http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/art...urns-ugly.html

    Seems Wenger's no longer any good at identifying long-term captaincy material, I mean did he make Arteta captain even though he can't even get in the team.

    Looking forward to the tussle between Gabriel and Costa this weekend. Gabriel clearly ain't talking **** from no one so he's a good candidate to acquiesce to costa extracurricular and get sent off. It'll be fun whilst we collect out usual beating.

    Gabriel can really nail down a place, you imagine. He was very tight at the weekend and Stoke barely troubled him. Mertesacker may struggle if Gabriel manages to form some sort of partnership which is solid and tough to break down in the back four.

    Would be good as it means we can play a high line and press up the pitch. None of our players bar Alexis and Welbz press though.

    Probably out of hope that Arteta would take the hint and ask to leave

    Vermaelen as captain was a mistake, culpable for pretty much all our losses in 2012-13. His departure was well received (and a shrewd piece of business )

    Vermaelan didn't really kick up a fuss though, more the case that Barca offered stupid money for an injury prone player.

    That said, think Sol Campbell is a good example of you poaching morally questionable captains. All these are just more examples of Shawn in particular being incorrect/hypocritical. For all Fabregas apparently did in his last few days, at least he didn't intentionally run his contract down and run away to your biggest rivals. I do wonder if your fans get tired of being wrong all the time?

    Arteta and Van Persie were/are good captains.

    I said this when we bought him.

    When he's on form top 5 midfielders in the world though.
