"But what Campbell did to Notts. County (walking out on the club after
playing just one game) made what he did to Spurs and Arsenal seem almost
heroic by comparison.
Let's get one thing absolutely straight
here. He signed for such a lowly League Two club for money.
They offered him £40,000 a week for five years and, at 35 years old, he
couldn't believe his luck.
But then, Campbell began reading about
how this would end any chance he had for playing for England again and
he panicked. And he did what he's always done when that selfish
gene kicks in, he walked. A livid Sven Goran Eriksson, who ahd
expended a lot of personal effort to land Campbell. talked of feeling
'let down' by the player.
He said, "I don't know the real reason he
left, but he didn't like the training ground or the dressing room and
things like that."
Oh, really ?
What you didn't like was everybody
laughing at you and saying your remaining England prospects had just
gone pear-shaped faster than Kerry Katona's backside.
Arsene Wenger says Campbell is a 'strong
man' and that's why he tore up his County contract. With the
greatest of respect Arsene, he's not. He's just a selfish git."
