Joel Campbell: Fuck Out


#282

Sort of feel sorry for him at this point… he won’t get many minutes, nor should he… I guess if we have injury crisis he might or if we make deep run in one of the lesser cups, I suppose we can throw him on… I’d still rather see someone like Nelson or even our new star in making ESR (realizing he is different position).


#283

Nah. Don’t feel sorry for him. I still remember how he (and his representatives) strung out the deal when he was signing. There were rumors that Dick Law (or maybe Ivan?) was bumbling around CR basically begging him to sign a deal.


#284

Absolutely not, fuck that. He could make a career for himself elsewhere at the level he belongs at, playing week in week out, but he clearly chooses not to.

I don’t begrudge him at all. I’d almost certainly do the same. Like Jenkinson he knows he’s incredibly unlikely to earn this kind of money again, so fair play, milk the full length of the contract, I would absolutely do exactly the same.

But I refuse to believe there’s any reason to feel sorry for him. He’s living his best life right now on PL wages, good for him. I can’t pity that.


#285

Been left out the PL squad


#286

#287

clearing out space it seems, maybe we will go after nzonzi.


#288

When? In january? He’s already moving to Roma btw.


#289

It is really the time for him to leave…


#290

When does the transfer market open and close in january?


#291

January 1st to January 31st


#292

Luca its the same every year :wink:


#293

Got rid of Perez, may as well go the whole hog and chuck Joel in the bin too.


#294

@shamrockgooner

I’ve just made your Thursday morning. You can finally move this thread haha


#295

That’s Perez and Campbell gone, as well as Walcott, Coquelin and Giroud since last season.
Get rid of Welbeck as well and it means that almost all the high earning, under performing, players that Wenger accumulated and persisted with are gone.

Perhaps we can look forward to accumulating some quality players, with the new manager and new recruitment staff.


#296

One thing the club deserves credit for is this massive clear out they’ve taken on for the last 2 years. Shedded a lot of unnecessary excess. Makes squad assessment in the future easier to trim if you’re only dealing with one or two players.

Good luck Joel.


#297

Looked so promising when given the chance. Another bad decision from Wenger. Good luck.

P.s.: thanks for the “fuck out” in the title thread :kos2:


#298

If Wenger didn’t rate him, I don’t get why we didn’t sell after 2014, where he had a good season with olympiakos, a good world cup and a good preseason.

Another bemusing decision by the club. the


#299

I read that during that window we had been offered 10m for him, which considering his lack of playing time, seemed too good to turn down.


#300

Don’t fucking tell me Wenger comes back for a second spell as manager!! :disappointed:


#301

I’m from the future and Wenger’s not manager because he has died along with the rest of humanity.

I’m a robot created to preserve the ultimate human being.
