A Sobering Thought

It was assumed by many on his arrival that Sol Campbell would be a laughing stock and out of his depth. Instead, he's put a lot of our other players to shame.

The old desire is clearly still there. His clear organisational skills make you wonder why Wenger does not sign more experienced players (and I mean good ones, Silvestre doesn't count).

A lot of people probably thought that Campbell would end up costing Arsenal the title. What he has actually done is provide an echo of what now sadly seems a bygone era. Diaby, Denilson, Eboue, Walcott, Bendtner, Almunia... whatever about their questionable abilities, think of their attitudes, and ask would any of these guys be allowed line up beside Campbell et al in 03/04?

Why are Arsenal players not held to that standard anymore?
