Darren Bent made captain for today’s match. Interesting development. I had heard Bent had volunteered for the role in Petrov’s absence

Today, Darren Bent has tweeted:

Was great to get out there for the claret and blue today after such a long time out. It was an honour to be captain, loved it!

That got the tiny cogs in my head turning!

Who would you have as team captain (bearing in mind #19 Stiliyan Petrov remains Club captain) ?

Bent wouldn`t be a bad shout in my humble opinion, if he could lead from the front, then why not. The only other major shout would be Shay Given but I`m not sure I like keepers as captains, they have enough to think about!

Last time we asked, these were the results:

Who should be the new team captain?
Poll Date: 10 Jun 2012
Suggested By: JP Fear

None, buy a new player worthy of being captain 57%

Given 23%
Dunne 9%
I’ve really no idea 3%
Ireland 3%
Agonlahor 2%
Other 2%
Bent 1%
Collins 0%

However, after Bent stepped up and volunteered, it made me wonder, has he matured, has he decided his future is at Villa and does he want to lead the team?

If so, go for it?!
