As a long time Premier League captain, Steven Gerrard knows a bit about the demands of the job. However, his decision to strip Tyrone Mings of the captaincy coupled with his less than favourable comments were still seen as a little bit over the top by sections of the Aston Villa fanbase.
Whether it's because Gerrard sees a bit of himself in new skipper John McGinn, or just that he doesn't fancy Mings, you do have to feel sorry for the England international.
After Saturday's opening day defeat against Bournemouth, Gerrard : "When Tyrone is back at his best and looks me in the eye and shows that he's ready to play, he'll get opportunities."
Gerrard himself was famously awarded the Liverpool captaincy in 2003 after then boss Gerard Houllier removed Sami Hyypia from the job, saying that Gerrard deserved the armband to reflect his growing influence on the team.
