Is Sol Campbell on his way?

Recommended Posts

Portsmouth have denied that Sol Campbell is on his way out of the club after the England defender missed the 3-1 victory at home to Derby County on Saturday. Local radio reports suggested that Campbell had been spotted shopping in Winchester instead of watching the game at Fratton Park, and, although Harry Redknapp, the manager, claimed that his captain had suffered a back injury on the morning of the match, there was speculation that Campbell could be bound for Newcastle United.

 

Campbell has questioned the club’s ambition, which is not a commodity lacking at St James’ Park, where Kevin Keegan, the manager, said after the goalless draw at home to Bolton Wanderers on Saturday, that an experienced central defender was among his transfer priorities.

 

Peter Storrie, the Portsmouth chief executive, has rubbished the rumours, but if Campbell is unhappy, then his mood was unlikely to have been helped by a public rap on the knuckles administered by Storrie last week. After Sylvain Distin had joined Campbell in expressing concern over a lack of signings since the opening of the transfer window, Storrie made it plain that he believed that players should be seen ? on the pitch ? but not heard.

 

“We don’t talk about how the players play, so they shouldn’t talk about the money the club has spent,” Storrie said. “We are puzzled as to why [Campbell] keeps making these statements.”

a good season or 2 left in him yet i reckon, we need someone like him in the defence.

 

another mental breakdown won't be too far away if our fans boo him.

I thought their maybe something in this on saturday (its in a thread somewhere) and i certainly hope it proves to be true as his quality is excellent and would be a formidable partner for either taylor ,faye or van buyten

I'm all for this as well. Would add some much needed steel in defence. Let the midfielders and the full-backs do the running. But then again, I wouldn;t even mind Hyypia. And he's got the turning circle (and pace) of an oil tanker.
