Gerrard is arguably the finest player in his position in world football, although he was not well utilised by outgoing England coach Sven-Goran Eriksson.
He is unlikely to be chosen ahead of his captain at club level, Terry, and will now concentrate on regaining his best form at international level.
Injury-plagued Newcastle striker Michael Owen has been Eriksson's vice captain but his latest injury problems mean he will be watching McClaren's first game in charge from the sidelines.

Portugal captain Luis Figo recently said the biggest challenge for a captain during the 90 minutes was to help his youngsters keep their focus — unlike in cricket the captain's role in football is minimal outside the pitch as the strategising and motivational projects are undertaken exclusively by the manager.

I have never been a fan of having a striker as a captain reason being is a leader needs to lead from the back rather than the front and needs to be incontact with his fellow team mates off the pitch too.
I think Henry should stay as captain he has only had a couple of below par games but he is not a magician and Arsenal have got to show that they are not a 1 man team and that if you shut out Henry you shut out Arsenal.
I see your point but I dont think the results wouldchange with or without him as captain after all didn't Arsenal get 4th ;last year with Henry as skipper and didn't they reach the champions league final where they were unlucky to lose to an awesome Barca side.
