Following the (unsurprising) news that Thomas Vermaelen is set to leave Arsenal for Barcelona it brings the need for Arsenal to choose a new captain.

For all intents and purposes Vermaelen has only been the captain in name after finding himself riding the pine as he found himself out in the cold as Koscielny and BFG formed a formidable partnership last season, however once this deal is finalised, Arsene Wenger will need to officially choose a new captain.

The latest Vital Arsenal poll asks you (and you can use the comments section below to discuss the finer points of your choices) who you think should be the next Arsenal captain.

Should it be the loveable but awesome Big Flipping German (as my 7 year old calls him) or his partner in crime Koscielny, would the job go automatically to the current vice-captain Mikel Arteta or is his career at Arsenal too close to winding down? Aaron Ramsey or Jack Wilshere? Or should it be someone else?

Find the poll down the right hand side of the VA website & choose wisely as this job has seemingly been jinxed in recent years,!!
