Steven Beacom: Sorry Sol, you have been great

When Sol Campbell signed for Arsenal, I suggested that it was a backward step for the north London outfit.

Maybe an apology is due to the former England and Notts County star because so far he has been superb since returning to the welcoming arms of Arsene Wenger.

The Gunners outpassed and outclassed Porto in the Champions League earlier this week. They had many heroes, not least Nicklas Bendtner who finally matched his outlandish boasts with a big performance, netting a hat-trick.

Campbell was excellent. He’s not as quick as he used to be but he remains strong in the air and adds a real presence to the Arsenal defence. That’s something they have been lacking since... well, since a certain Sol Campbell was there first time around.
