Sol Campbell has given lots of interviews since he first played for Newcastle United on Tuesday night in the Reserves game at Sunderland.
Sol Campbell – Newcastle may surprise a lot of people this season
What has come out in the many interviews with Sol, is that he is still enormously ambitious to achieve things in football, and he wants to do that at his new club, Newcastle United.
Campbell has a characteristically positive outlook for the future of Newcastle, and thinks the Newcastle team can surprise a lot of people this season, as he talked this morning with the Newcastle Journal:
“I think definitely a top-half finish and then keep on pushing. It is always nice to win a bit of silverware – the League Cup or FA Cup would be nice – but also qualifying for Europe.”
“You have got to set your standards high and keep on pushing. That is the only way you can do football.” “I think we will surprise a few teams this season.” “We have to keep our feet on the ground and make sure we do all the right things and we have to stay fit.”
“A few injuries and we might suffer, but as long as we keep a fit team we should be all right.”
It’s good to have Sol Campbell at Newcastle, because he’s been a winner all his career, and of course is a top flight professional in everything he does.
Maybe his outlook is just what the club now needs to get them on their way to – dare we say it – win something soon. Wouldn’t that be something – after 41 years of nothing.
But we will still be satisfied if we can survive relegation this season, and a mid-table finish would be just great.
