Still no word from Sam Allardyce on who will be his captain at Newcastle for the coming season.
Geremi has captained Newcastle for the last two pre-season friendlies but Sam has not really hinted at all who his choice will be.
There are a few players now who would make good choices – let’s take a look.
Geremi – new Newcastle Captain?
The candidates had been Given, Taylor, Butt, Owen, Geremi and even Cacapa who has just joined the club. Cacapa will not be ready to play at Bolton so it will be interesting to see when Sam announces his choice. Geremi’s attitude and form have been so good since he joined the club it wouldn’t surpriseÂ us at all if he was announced as the new captain.
Alan Smith could even make a good future captain, given his immediate commitment to the Newcastle cause and his obvious strong relationship with both Sam and the fans. Alan has been a joy since he has arrived at the club. We never knew his attitude was so good butÂ maybe that’s what happens when you play under Sir Alex Ferguson who always had good things to say about him.Â
Obviously, the captainÂ has to be someone who will play almost every game so Geremi would be a good choice there. But Cacapa is also a candidate with his experience in Europe and his winning attitude and experience at Lyon. However, just which two central defenders will be Sam’s choice is not known. He has Steven Taylor, David Rozehnal and Claudio Cacapa to choose from – best of luck Sam.
So for us it’s between CacapaÂ and Geremi but we now think Geremi has to be the favorite.
