Lucas Neill Next West Ham Captain
There have been rumours for a couple of weeks that Lucas Neill will be West Ham's next club captain after Reo-Coker leaves. This of course will be dependent on Lucas Neill staying at West ham himself. What lends credence to the rumour is that Neill already seems to have become the spokesmen for the players whilst Reo-Coker remains silent.
Evidence of this is Neill's rallying cry on the official site ahead of tomorrow's game,
"We have three home matches - all of which are winnable in my opinion, a very important away match at Wigan, and then a trip to Manchester United on the final day of the season.
There is still so much to play for, and it is important that we don't lose heart. We have to bounce back immediately and react quickly, and it's great to have a home game on Wednesday against Chelsea because it is a chance to lift ourselves again.
We have to realise that there are still 15 points to play for, and we have to fight for every single one of them. We can still end up smiling at the end of the season."
