Sol Campbell will get some much needed match practice for the Reserves tonight against a strong Liverpool side, and all being well he should be in the Newcastle squad for the Blackpool game at St. James’ Park on Saturday.
Sol Campbell – in action tonight for Newcastle Reserves
Sol is a little different to the rest of the Newcastle players at the club, since he has not only played top-class football throughout his career, but also has an impressive number of trophies he has won.
He also knows what trophies are – whereas other Newcastle players may give you a blank look, if you ask them about trophies. 😀
41 years and counting.
Sol is also professional enough that he will be all ready to play against a young but good Liverpool Reserves side, as he told the Evening Chronicle today:
“Things are starting to come together for me.” “As I’ve said, it’s down to hard work and hard work only. That’s all I have to continue to do.”
“It’s a great challenge for me to come to Newcastle.” “I’ve had chances to win cups and trophies in the last seven or eight years and enjoyed them.”
“For me, it’s the same here.” “I’m sure the Newcastle fans would like to still see silverware and to get back into Europe.” “That would definitely be a great thing to achieve in my career here.”
“It’s certainly what I’m aiming for.” “Nothing is impossible.”
Newcastle have made a much better start to the season that we had thought, even though we were trounced at Manchester United in that first game, but there were still positives to take from the game at Old Trafford.
Even though the Newcastle defense were under constant pressure Coloccini and Williamson had excellent games, and Mike in particular will have learned a lot from that specific game.
It’s early days in the season of course, and we’ll have our downs as well as our ups, but overall we could do better than a lot of us expected this season.
But one thing is for sure, things are definitely starting to look up at the Newcastle club.
