Obvious choice, given that he was the vice captain last season. Somehow I always feel better about defenders being team captains anyway. It just feels more appropriate for some reason.

Oh Crap! Now we'll lose the Verminator at the end of the season. Squillaci should've been named Captain, maybe and just maybe, the curse would be stopped that way.

Good choice in captain. Although loyalty in football seems rare, Thomas seems like the type who fans can count on.
