Sol Campbell leaves Arsenal: Good bye and good riddance!
Ashley Cole has no conscience, he just wants more money but now Sol is leaving Arsenal's new home too. He wants to move abroad, to some other league. Maybe the rigours of the EPL have gotten to Sol and he has been frequently injured as he was this last season. Might we suggest that he move to the US League, the MLS where the players rarely get injured and the pace is about two steps slower.
Dennis Bergkamp just asked Arsenal to hold onto Ashley Cole but I think Cole leaves, he will not be missed. Sol's leaving Tottenham to move to their arch rivals club, Arsenal enraged their supporters. He has been called mercenary in his dealings with the Spurs after they negotiated a contract that would have him the most expensive in club history, and decided to leave after that for Arsenal after being courted by many European clubs.
Sol is damaged goods. He is old (34 years) and has a few years left if injury free. His playing time in Arsenal would have been limited. Time to dust off Gael Clichy and start him off as the left back, Senderos and Kolo Toure at the centre, Eboue at right. Lauren also should be ready to play this season. Johan Djorou should get some good minutes.
Bergkamp looks at Arsenal challenging Chelsea, and I don't think it was just a feel good moment.
Sol is a flashy guy and I think somewhere down the line he is going to make his move to the movie world, where he will team up with Dennis Rodman, Jackie Chan, and Van Damme, in a movie, "OMG, its those gits on crutches", in which he will lob a nuclear warhead off his noggin over the stadium thus saving Warner Bros from actually having to pay for one. It will require many takes but Sol will get the job done with some nice digital work.
