A recent poll of members of the official England Supporters’ Club shows that England fans are split as to who they want to captain the national team:
51% want John Terry and 46% want Steven Gerrard (Gary Neville and Frank Lampard make up the numbers, with 2% and 1% respectively).
I would choose John Terry, but I’d be just as happy with Gerrard. Put yourself in Steve McClaren’s sensible shoes â€“ who would you choose?
UPDATE Steve McClaren has gone for John Terry, with Gerrard as his deputy.
