Blanc to announce captain Wednesday - new candidates?

Ever since Titi Henry was relegated to watching games from the substitutes bench, there has not been a clear cut choice for captain with Les Bleus. Patrice Evra tried the arm band on for size during the debacle that was South Africa, then Laurent Blanc ushered in his reign by giving Mexes the arm band and then rotating it through a few players - Malouda, Diarra and Lloris.


Blanc has mentioned on more than one occasion that he does not have a clear cut choice to wear the arm band long term - but he has a group of players in mind that could assume the honor. So will he look to a different captain to lead out Les Bleus onto the Stade de France pitch tomorrow? I have a sneaking feeling that Alou Diarra will once again don the captain's arm band.
Anyone who can "stand up" to Crouch deserves the arm band....heheee

The Bordeaux man has assumed the responsibility of captain for the majority of France's European Cup qualifiers, not a small task. He was also Blanc's captain when the former France Libero was at Bordeaux. Diarra appears to have elevated himself in Blanc's long term plans as a pillar in front of the French back 4. His partnership with M'Vila would appear to be the holding duo that Blanc will lean on moving forward. We shall see who leads Les Bleus out against Brazil tomorrow.

Odds of wearing the captain's arm band:
  • Diarra 2:1
  • Malouda 4:1
  • Mexes 6:1
  • Rami 7:1
  • Lloris 7:1
  • Abidal 12:1
Allez les Bleus!
