It’s Wednesday again! And to be quite honest there wasn’t really much happening in the world of football apart from – of course – the Carling Cup. Fantastic. However, there I was, trawling the internet for something to write about and lo’ and behold, Sol Campbell provided. About five weeks into a five year contract Campbell has had enough of life at Notts County and walked away from the club.
That, it has to be said, is pretty ridiculous, and brings player power to an all time high, building on the increasing levels of disloyalty shown in football in recent years and in particular over the Summer with the transfers of several high profile players like Cristiano Ronaldo and Joleon Lescott. Over at We Don’t Know Football then I’ve had a look at what this says about the evolution of football as a whole and it’s place in our modern day society.
