After a recent site poll, only 42% of our readers say they are pleased to see that captain Garry Monk has signed a new deal.

After missing most of last season because of a knee ligament injury, Monk is now fit and says he is raring to go for the new season.

Jackett named Monk as captain at the beginning of the 2006/07 season, but it seems as though fans are unsure whether or not he should continue that role this year.

42% votes ‘Yes’ that they were pleased he’s still here, but 21% voted ‘No’ while 37% weren’t bothered either way.

Personally, I think Monk played an important role at the back for us in his first season, when we won promotion to League One, but he seems to have struggled since then.

Hopefully however, he’ll return in August and prove that he can play well at this level.

What are your views on Monk as captain? Should the armband be given to someone else? Let us know your views on our forum here
