O Captain, My Captain (Or Times 5 in Arsenal’s case!!)

O Captain, My Captain 

 

Names 5 captains

 

 

Unai named his ‘Captains’ yesterday and to be fair, the names did not come as a surprise.

 

“The captain of this group is Laurent Koscielny, who is injured at the moment. After Laurent, our other captains are Petr Cech, Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil and Granit Xhaka.”

 

 He went on to say:

 

“I want leaders in the team, every player at every time to have the capacity to show leadership, but these are the five players who have a possibility to be the captain.”

 

 

 

To all our Captains, here is my battle cry:

 

O Captain! My Captain! Our hopeful trip is begun;

The team has weather’d every block, the prize there to be won;

The game is near, the whistle I hear, the people all expecting,

With following eyes and steady keel, the team be brave and daring:

 

O heart! heart! heart!

O the shirts gleaming red,

There on the pitch my Captain stands,

Must lead all in his stead.

 

O Captain! My Captain! Rise up and hear the yells

Rise up—for you the cannon is fired—for you the crowd trills

For you the team behind you stands—for you the fans are crowding

For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning

 

O heart! heart! heart!

O the shirts gleaming red,

There on the pitch my Captain stands,

Must lead all in his stead.

 

My Captain must now answerhis battle and his skill

My Captain must now raise him armraise his pulse and raise up his will

The team is ready and waits command; the voyage must now be run

So now stand up, lead the ship and win what must be won

 

O heart! heart! heart!

O the shirts gleaming red,

There on the pitch my Captain stands,

Must lead all in his stead.

Still Club Captain
