Is he still in the team? Can't seem to fathom it from the bbc news story.

I hope they don't make Rio captain. The captain should be somebody who is an automatic choice in their position; personally don't think Rio should even start for England.

thought gerrard was the vice captain

he should defo be captain

****ing stupid all of it!!

About time, never should have been captain anyway.

terry got merked!

Gerrard is 3rd choice, rio is vice, so thus in theory those 2 being promoted one position

Supermod

Rioooooooooooooooooo.

I think Rooney, anyone give him jip and he'll smash them one lol

Seriously, he always seems commited to play his heart out for England.

Its what needed to be done, you cant have division in the team & I'm surprised Capello had the balls to do it tbh.
I'm not bothered about the role model carp more the fact it was a team mate & there would be tension in the team.
This isn't ideal but its a matter of damage limitation now & this is the best way forward, just hope it doesn't effect the team that much.

rooooooney ftw. The Gerrard, then Rio

Yeah but shrek is an angry ungracious little **** who makes a mockery of 'respect the referee', clearly Gareth Barry should be captain. Do you really want this leading your country to battle ?

I think this is pathetic you strip jt then give the captains armband to someone who dodged a drugs test and got banned, let's face it no one in that team is whiter than White and nobody in that squad can lead that team like jt, I seriously think this may dent our hopes come summer

I know nothing about football but do know that Rooney has had his fair share of scandal also - paying for sex with old prostitutes!!

LMAO..!!!

Barry is one of the most over-rated players, He's very quiet and only occasionally has a good game, Someone with a personality who has authority would be a much better choice.

Rooney's probably too young, Although would probably still make a good captain, Rio will or won't he be injured? So Gerrard or Lumpoflard would probably be first choice.

But defo Rooney in a few years.

lol you should be a comedian, I'd rather have one Rooney in the team than three of Barry!
If the whole team played with the passion Rooney does I'd bet my life savings on England winning the world cup.

Exactly no they didn't so why should we change it

Didn't Fergie make Rooney captain for a few games this year?

He's calmed down, he's the player of the year by far and he's a guaranteed start.

Make him captain if it's that important, or just give it to the most capped player on the day.

I think that Rooney is the best player in England, but that does not mean he should be captain of his country, it's more than be committed etc.

He isn't even a club captain.

I'll open another big can of worms and put David Beckham forward as my choice.

Sorry, main criteria for the job is no affairs. I know that restricts the choice a bit.

Yes well if were going down that road then I'm not sure and of the 23 man squad will qualify!:roll:

The irony of it all is Capello's very recent tax-dodging issues in Italy was quite quickly swept under the carpet!

While I respect Capello for having the balls to make this move, I think it's the wrong decision. Every single footballer has some kind of skeleton in the closet. This has knocked us back a peg or two as far as winning the World cup.

yeah but garth barry is't actually very good is he, unlike rooney, he won't be an automatic first choice in the england team

Peter Crouch.

I dont think he's sha**ed anyone lately.

I think the difference in this case is that the "discrepancy" happened to be with the mother of his team mate's child.

You try the same in your work place, and see what happens.
