There’s some news in the People, that Newcastle may be ready to listen to offers for Sol Campbell in the January transfer window.
Sol Campbell – unhappy about Chris being fired
We have to always remember that the silly season is starting, and anybody who watched Sol’s last two performances for the Magpies could say that Newcastle and Sol himself must have have been disappointed with his performances.
But Newcastle signed Campbell as a free agent, and it seems unlikely that Newcastle would now try to sell him in January, rather than just let his contract run out in the summer.
At 36 years of age Sol would hardly bring much at all in a fee, and he has experience and Newcastle fans will hope we have more to see from Sol, although he’s almost certain to lose his place against Man City on Sunday.
But it seems Sol himself was a great admirer of Chris Hughton’s and may now want to leave Newcastle becau he is still upset at how Hughton was ousted from the club.
A Newcastle source (they’ll be really busy in January no doubt) said today:
“Sol is a professional through and through but he has taken the departure of Chris Hughton harder than the rest of the players.”
“Chris was one of the main reasons he came up to Newcastle, and there was even talk about him joining the coaching staff.”
We had thought that Sol may be offered a coaching position at the club next season, but now with Chris gone, that opportunity may have also gone out of the window.
Sol may have also become fed up with the latest antics of owner Mike Ashley, and if that’s the case we can understand how he feels.
Newcastle fans are lumbered with Ashley, and we just have to hope some sane person with lots of money comes along and buys the club off Mike, and then gets football people in to run the club at the higher levels.
One of the many mistakes Mike has made at Newcastle is that he brought his buddy in to run the club, and Derek LLambias has no experience at all in football, just in gambling casinos, but that didn’t stop Derek from sacking Chris, because Chris didn’t have enough experience in management.
It’s pathetic when you think of it that way – and it even seems that Mike Ashley now wants to become more hands on at Newcastle – oh no – say it aint so!
We’ll just have to wait and see on that one – and pray every night.
