And the next one is?

And the next one is?

Who is next up?

With John Terry injured, Didier Drogba injured, Frank Lampard injured and Ricardo Carvalho suspended, we like to canvass your opinion.

We have a dilemma!

Who do you believe will wear the captains` armband in the next couple of games?

Would you go for Michael Ballack to complete a sensational return or is there someone else?

Your thoughts please!

Joey Cole go the armband in the last match. I'd love Sheva to get it, to improve his confidence, but it makes sense for either Cech or Essien to get it.

I think Cech or Essien as well. Both have calm heads on their shoulders, unlike Joe or Ashley Cole, who are both a little immature to be captain, IMO. I could see Ballack doing it, he's had quit alot of experience, after all. But it just seems that those who have been at Chelsea longer, such as Cech, Essien, or even Bridge, should really get that honor before Ballack does.

I would say Joe Cole becuase I like him, but I think Cech, Essien or even Ballack would be a better choice.

We've got quite a few national captains haven't we? Ballack, Sheva, JT, Drogs, Pizza. Ballack has the most experience of carrying a team though.

I repeat Bridgey..he has been loyal to us..i am mean he even agreed to play for fulham to regain his fitness, now that is a sacrifice of a true leader and a wonderful guy.

I don't think someone who isn't in the first team will get the armband. Cech and Essien have always been solid, they've never let us down (almost never). But Ballack is the most qualified. PLEASE give it to Sheva though!!! He can handle the responsibilty and I'm sure it will help him.

Has any other club had so many international captains in the squad at the same time?

I'm not sure Cech would be a good choice. Whilst I admire the senior status suggestion does a keeper ever make a good captain?

Kahn was a great captain for Germany.

Mostly because if you didn't do what he wanted, he would have killed you. That would inspire obedience and loyalty in me, I can tell you. ;p

Wayne Bridge is our third choice captain, Drogba is fourth, Makelele is fifth I think. So, yes, it will be Wayne Bridge. For the love god, Joe Cole as captain? He's not captaincy material.

Essien or Petr makes sense. But to boost morale, go for Shevo or Ballack, they┬┤ve got what it takes, no doubt.
