    Why hasn't Arsene offered him a coaching role? Telling isn't it.

    If he ever truly believes he wants to be a manager then he needs to lose the ego & chip on his shoulder that he carries with him.

    He is so hell bent on making everything about race that it backfires with him, like all the talk about having a black captain for England. I honestly wouldnt care either way if there was a black captain, or white captain, or middle east, far east captain for England. If that person is captain material (eg our own Ledley) then thats fine with me. King was and will always be my Club Captain (Harry may challenge that in the long run) for Spurs because the man exudes class in everything he does.

    Campbell is just an idiot who thinks he deserves everything for nothing, the moment he made that move from Spurs to Arsenal, every neutral fan I know thought he was a w*nker and he lost almost all his respect from that day on.

    Sol, you are a traitor pr*ck who will never be a good manager as most people actively dislike you, anyway......good luck haha!

    It's almost as if people in football don't trust him, don't like him and don't want him. I wonder where it all went wrong.

    Everywhere perhaps?

    when he claimed to be Spurs through and through and left for Arsenal. When he claimed he wanted to play overseas and joined Portsmouth. When he sued them for image rights despite the club being in administration. When he gave up on Notts County a month into a 5yr contract. When he turned up overweight at Newcastle and they declined to renew his one year contract. Or perhaps almost everything since? His vacant expressions and lack of insight on TV, his political aspirations, his outrage at the mansion tax, his support (if you can call it that) of fox hunting because of the clothing and the banter.

    He's ridiculous. Completely unaware of how people see him and comes across as a complete phony. Almost like OJ Simpson if anyone has seen that ESPN 'OJ: Made in America' documentary. Totally forgotten his roots, pretending to fit in with a sector of society he isn't really part of and trying to be the same as them without any understanding of who he really is.

    If he showed some humility, got on with working somewhere (I read he's asst with Trinidad & Tobago?!) and proving himself to be worth the bother instead of complaining in the press like he's owed a living because he once played football then, maybe, a club would give him a chance.

    I can just see the headlines now:

    "Spennymore Town suffer an embarrassing 5-0 defeat at home to Salford City as manager Sol Campbell sensationally leaves the ground at half time to go home. Campbell then took to Twitter to accuse the Salford players of racism, claiming they would not have taken so many shots against a team managed by a white person."

    I don't know why he sets himself these lofty goals. He's already well on his way to being the world's biggest ****, so I feel like he'd be better off dedicating his time to going all the way in the "being a ****" field

    If he's serious about taking a non-league job for free he should give the guys at Leyton Orient a call. They've had a really awful time over the last season with relegation and almost going out of business and I can imagine the lift it would give them knowing that they still aren't desperate enough to want him anywhere near the club.

    The prick would charge £3 instead of £2 and run off with all the cash.
