What now for Sol?

What now for Sol?

The Herminator has long since - ok last week! - signed his new 1-year contract, which has the option of possibly another to follow, so that is him sorted...

Kanu 'will sign' a new 1-year contract, but of course only when he is ready to do so - and when pre-season is done :-)

Sol Campbell, from those that are now officially out-of-contract, is the only one that we wanted to keep - that had not said he was off - and also the only one that is to make a comment on his future...

He has not been short of offers from abroad, even if they have not been flooding in at home.

Technically if he wanted the former England man could up and leave and sign for whoever he wants, but, and although his future with Pompey is anything but secure, I would not really expect him to rush into anything and it would not surprise me if he did wait and see what the next couple of weeks bring for Pompey?

That said, maybe the ink is already drying on a contract elsewhere...who knows!

What do we think guys, do we think Sol will stay - do you even want him to?

I don't expect him to command a regular place this season but would love to keep him if he takes a wage cut

I think he'll head off abroad, all though guess our offer will be the best financially.

Must say I really do want him to stay, for another year at least. He's still massive for us and we need his experience and leadership, because this coming season looks like it's going to be a transitional one. He's not going to go on for ever, but if we could get another season out of him it will ease that transition.

Sol will be off as soon as reduced wages are mentioned, prediction Galatasaray, somewhere warm, similar funds and not too much running required. then again he could up at Southampton, Plymouth or Bournmouth IF they were able to match his wages.

I really do hope that Sol Campbell stays with you for another season, his experience and leadership will be invaluable as you start to build and then gel your new team. Even if he doesn't play the full 90 minutes over 38+ games what he offers off the pitch and in the dressing room will be invaluable and he may even be an ace in attracting new players. PS Thank you Mr Rug.

I can see him staying, as said the offers don't seem to be flooding in and the overseas ones have hardly been eye catching.

Definately one more season in him so I hope he stays. Getting rid of players such as Lauren should allow us to pay his wages for another season coz I don't see him taking a pay cut.

Sol appears intelligent and i would live him to try his luck as a player coach here at PFC...However, I suspect he will go to the States and try a dual career of football and Acting. This is just a hunch... i have no other source of information except i once heard an ex colleague of his joking on TV about his face being made for the silver screen. Any way for a lot of us...whatever happens...”When Sol went up.....etc etc. 40 odd years ago a little boy in Hampshire called Graham, dreampt,wished,and hoped,for that day, ultimately was disappointed each year until May 17th 2007. Good luck Sol and cheers mate. ...oh Teddy lion..Youve got a twisted sense of Humour...Saints and wages in the same sentence...tut tut

It all depends on his head. If he wants a challenge he will stay and help build the new side, if he fancies the gravy train he will be off.

Hope he stays as he looked his old self towards the end of last season.
