Another significant thing that has come out of naming the squad is that Chris Samba has been made captain, according to the official site, which I think is a great move. Nelly was a great captain but Samba was inspired to another level when he was given it last year during Nelly's injury.

Thats true Fran and I doubt Nelly needs the armband to continue to be the leader he is on and off the pitch.
