Friends Of Liverpool

With Liverpool playing Spurs in a vital game today where three points are a must in order to return to second-place again, the question has been asked by many people:

In the absence of Steven Gerrard, who should be made Captain of the team?

Daniel Agger is the obvious candidate as he is now the club’s Vice-Captain since the departure of Jamie Carragher.

The question is, will Agger start at White Hart Lane, given the impressive performances of Sakho and Skrtel lately.

Brendan Rodgers is known to be a fan of players who perform on the pitch for him, dropping people when necessary, so there is no guarantee that Agger will displace the current defenders for this crucial game.

So if  Agger does not start against Spurs who are the likely players to assume the roll?

A lot of the talk this week has mentioned Luis Suarez as a possible candidate, despite his conduct over the Summer, he has given his all for Liverpool this Season and with 15 goals to his name, he is worth a shout, he is a natural goalscorer, always on the move.

Mignolet, Toure, Glen Johnson, Lucas are others being mentioned.

To be honest, I don’t care who is named Captain as long as we beat a tricky Spurs team.
