Apparently they want him as out of contract.

I know most will find this funny but I think he isn't AS bad as people say.

Will graft if nothing else. Deserves to be a success somewhere but I just never see him scoring more than 5 goals a season in the premiership. His goal at Hull may prove crucial mind you.

Still if he's the caliber of player the weed are aiming for I don't hold much hope for them next year.

Do not have a problem with him, always tries but 35k a week for a reserve striker is steep.

I've always thought he's not as bad as people make out, will always give 100%

One thing you can't not fault is his effort

He always gives 100% and you can't knock him for that. Not clinical or technically good enough at this level in my eyes but he'd probably suit a Hughton side of grafters. If they're to have any chance they need to be signing players more prolific than Campbell.

Solid acquisition for a promoted club, especially one like Brighton who I'm assuming will be trying to avoid paying any transfer fees due to their commitment to 'doing things the right way' - in this instance paying back their foolish, yet benevolent owner.

He Isn't.
But being out of Contract he'll,Help to,Create the Space for the Necessary Signings.

Linked with 80k a week Lucas Leiva too. :D

Surely we should be giving them the buy one get one free option as well - pack your bucket and spade Jordan Mutch.

I understand, as part of his commitment to paying back Tony Bloom, former CEO OF THE YEAR Paul Barber has offered to fund these wages out of his own generous salary.

The wages for the free transfers of Messi and Gareth Bale are to be covered by pie sales and Welsh theme nights

It's the right time for him to move on.
He's made great money out of us doing nothing.

Decent squad filler. If we went down, I'd hope he would be kept on as I think he is perfectly capable at that level. A little out of his depth at PL level. Good option to bring on for last 10 mins or so when defending a point or three as he puts himself about.

Can't see Campbell interesting them, surely Murray kept as reserve and Ulloa (spelling?) going back as First choice would make a lot more sense.

Jim Cannon

He isn't that bad, but he isn't that good either. Could get a few goals but won't be their main striker unless nobody wants to go there

This move will legitimately kill my love for football. To see our England international striker move to our rivals as they begin a long awaited season in the top flight would be heartbreaking. I sincerely hope the Yanks veto this move.

Financially it would probably be a wise move but if I was him I would drop down to the Chanpionship. He could play every week at a playoff challenger and probably score a fair few goals.

Really hope our goal machine goes to them to take up another place in their 25. Fryers and Sako will do well there as well

Do they want Mutch, lee, Hennesey, Kelly, Sako, Fryers as well. All proven top flight players.

They couldn't say we never do anything for them.

If he signs a two year deal with them, he'll get the opportunity....

Thing is if it's a choice of living destitute on the streets, having to prostitute yourself out just to get your next fix, and having no self worth or hope, or playing for Brighton, well I guess you have to give it some thought.

Probably a good move for him but I would like to see him starting every game somewhere. Seems like a genuinely decent guy who tried his best every minute. He deserves his chance, can maybe see him going back to Sunderland.

I don't see the two scenarios as being mutually exclusive?

What sort of player do people think we'll get as a fourth choice striker when we only play with one. Offer him another contract I'd say.

Sir.S.C Remembered

He has a 1 in 8 to 9 record in the last many years at Prem level. Not like he is a unit who hold the ball up too. This includes his 'good season' for Cardiff in the Prem.

Yes many of those are subs. But still, I don't see how any young lad wouldn't do better than this. Please don't block youth with players who WERE good some time ago. I'd be surprised if he scored many at league 1 level anymore.

A good young one. From academy even if nothing special could literally not be worse. But even if we had to sign someone.

Would Appiah have done worse? Or the lad out on loan at Oldham. Can't see it personally.

Glad to see most on here have been sensible

40k per week for 3 years - did f**k all if truth be told. He didn't stay with us out of the goodness of his heart. He had chances to go to play regular football in the championship but he didn't want to take a pay cut. That's completely fair enough but he's wasted three years of his career. Let's not pretend he did this for altruistic reasons.

Said it before and will do again, nowhere near as bad as some make out and has been a good pro and squad player for us. Id take him over the likes of Kuqi, Bradbury or Sanogo any day of the week.

16-05-2017, 09:22 AM
Don't hate the guy, not his fault he got the contract he did, and he's never not tried for us I just don't think he's quite cut out to be a Premier League striker.

Proper relegation signing from the Weeds if it happens. Which is excellent.

Oisin
16-05-2017, 09:41 AM
I'd rather keep him for a season as i don't think we should be spending a fee on a fourth choice striker

Villa fans deserve one hell of an apology for what he did to them.
