It was interesting to hear Scott Parker's name thrown into the mix this week with England seeking yet another new captain.
Don't get me wrong, as a player I actually have a lot of time for Parker's energetic style of play.
And in an era when players often have the raw enthusiasm coached out of them through managers overthinking tactical battles, it's good to see players who just chase anything that moves on a football pitch.
That's what Parker brings to a team, if there were more like him at Spurs then maybe the Londoners might be realistic title contenders.
But having experienced Parker as captain at Newcastle, I beg to differ with those who feel he could offer a magic solution for England.
