quality of player =/= captain? there was no need to strip it off him. he didn't do anything out of the ordinary, it's rare you see a captain stripped like that. fair enough if he always had small injuries and was always out but he doesn't. i'm not necessarily too bothered about it but i was surprised when i saw it. he probably is the better option but they could have let TV5 down with a bit more class, rather than just returning to see you aren't the permanent captain.

TV plays for Arsenal he's the best CB in the world and the greatest leader ever belgium should bend over backwards an play him everygame.
he has had a bad year and a half with injuries. before that, he always played. vermaelen is better than any of those barring kompany.
as for szczesny, no surprise to see him concede from outside the area. needs to improve his game a lot in that department. is good-v.good in most other departments though.
didn't expect germany to draw that game. missing big players though.
