Joel Campbell


#161

Probably reasonable sarcasm but if you haven’t seen it Kanu v Brazil '96 is worth a play.


#162

Did they? I thought after rumours and reports Werder denied any Bayern involvement?


#163

:grimacing:

Being bashed for not helping defensively and being a “fish out of water”, was subbed off at half time in their last game and so far been a bit of a flop despite his 1 goal.


#164

Well I choose to believe that says he’s doing just great and much better than Gnabry.


#165

He needs to work harder , been pretty lazy and inconsistente.


#166

Has scored two against the US. Does anybody follow him for Sporting? Is he getting enough playing time there?


#168

nope, he is a squad player. He played only two games as starter on 15 games played by Sporting.


#169

Joel Campbell is the definition of a squad player. It’s a testament to the shitness of this league last season and the shitness of the other options in our team that fans saw his performances as evidence of more than that.


#170

I honestly can’t remember a single person on here saying that he was more than a squad option though. Your post feels a bit straw man to me.


#171

I can. I could name names if you like…


#172

Do it.


#173

You and Maverick for starters.


#174

I could probably find few post of myself constantly reminding you that I think of him as a reliable squad player.


#175

Yeh, maybe after he cooled off a bit, but I could probably find a few of you referring to him as more than that. Maverick certainly said he could be world class a few times in the MDC, and it was an opinion not many disagreed with ha, least of all you.


#176

He has played fairly well for sporting, still has a lot of room for improvement but he always performs and for the NT.


#177

Hooefully he gets the chance to play and score . This are the kind of matches he loves.

Tonight will be a night full of costa ricans.


#178

Would have been a useful option to have in our current situation. Good passer, above average vision and good work rate. If not him then at least Gnabry would have been worth keeping. Easily would have done a job while Iwobi gets some rotation. These are decent squad players that offer real quality. Wenger relying on the return of long term injured players again.


#179

Probably best not to go down this rabbit hole buddy. Everyone on this forum has been wrong about players.


#180

Hopefully gets another chance when and if Wenger goes.


#181

Is the still an Arsenal player? If so, why?
