Alan Thompson named Leeds United's new captain!

7 August 2007 :: by Chris Hudson

Alan Thompson will be captain of Leeds United next season, Dennis Wise has revealed. The 33-year old ex-Celtic player will pen a new contract this week and be formally unveiled as captain. Alan has already captained Leeds United throughout the preseason and has avoided the injury problems that plagued him last season and restricted the aggressive but influential midfielder to just 11 appearances.

The appointment as captain of Leeds is quite an accolade for the man who once turned down Leeds in favour of a £4.5 million move to Aston Villa back in 1998. The former Bolton Wanderers player was a trainee at Newcastle United first, where he made 36 appearances for the Toon - this makes a change for Leeds fans who are more used to seeing their ex-players turn out in black and white - Alan Smith, Mark Viduka, Lee Bowyer, and Jonathan Woodgate spring to mind.

Whatever Alan Thompson does as captain will be more palatable than the disgraceful behaviour of Wise's previous choice as captain last season, Kevin Nicholls - having played barely 15 matches because of injury he announced the move to Leeds was a mistake and that he wanted to return to Luton Town - he were then looked in a terminal struggle with Leeds to avoid relegation! He seemed genuinely shocked when the club basically told him to shove it. Nicholls was quietly bundled out of Elland Road during a summer and washed up at Preston North End where hopefully he will spend the season on the bench mulling over why he was one of the worst signings in the history of Leeds United.
