Golden Boy Campbell focused on Betis

39

Joel Campbell made his first start of the season for Real Betis this weekend in their 1-0 home win over Valencia.

Although he didn’t score, and failed to play 90 minutes, it’s a step forward for the youngster who is having to work hard during his loan spell to make an impact in La Liga.

Thus far he’s had a chequered time: 3 substitute appearances, 1 red card (for 2 yellow card offences) and no goals, but it is one of the most technical leagues in the world and should be a good learning experience for him.

The Costa Rican youngster is determined to keep battling to make his mark though, and brushed aside talk of Arsenal as he focused on the task at hand. Speaking to the official Betis website, “I can contribute a lot more and I have to take my chances. There are 26 players fighting for a spot.

“[Arsenal] They give me space and respect the team I’m currently at. I can only think about the present, here at Betis. The team has opened doors for me, they gave me the chance to play in La Liga. I have to keep working and give the maximum for Betis.

“What happens in the future nobody knows.”

And like Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Campbell has been nominated for the ‘Golden Boy’, award given by journalists to the most promising young player in Europe.

“For a player from Costa Rica to be nominated for the Golden Boy  is something nice”, said Campbell. “It serves to recognize my work, but I have to keep trying every day.”

I see what you mean.
With Campbell winning this award we would only be getting some sort of reflected glory from goldenware, rather than silverware we need ?

Nothing shows your love for the Arsenal like not showing up to watch and support the players, right?

Dont want him to invest. we dont want anything more from him apart from his intention to sell. he is the root of the problem wenger is the trunk that the coaching staff just branch off from whilst the players well they just leave. At the moment arsenal is like an old ash tree just waiting to die. we now need a new acorn from which a great oak can grow and hopefully bring tree titles in tree years

don’t know who your guaranteed winner is supposed to be, but I can guarantee it will only hurt the players, which will hurt the club, which will hurt the fans all of which kroenke may not really give a shit about.

How? If he can’t manage a starting spot at Real Betis is he really going to replace Giroud, Walcott, The Ox, Podolski? I doubt it. I am looking forward for the return of Ryo much more than Campbell.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch . . .

Campbell sounds like he has the right attitude, modest and self aware.

if he can make a name for himself in Spain then we can look forward to a nice little prospect in a year or so’s time.

To be fair to Joel C, his sending off against Atletico Madrid was total nonsense, a second yellow for handball when his marker flicked the ball onto his hand with his own (0:33 onwards):

His performance on Saturday was apparently a little manic, but he was involved in several good passages of play until he was subbed on the hour against a CL team. It´s certainly all good experience for a player who seems to have a little more about him than some of our other youngsters who have gone on loan to the lower tiers of English football. Hopefully he´s on his way to doing this in an Arsenal shirt:

I’ve seen him play a few times and already I would say he’s the best striker in the world

The only killer for Bendtner is his ego.

Well, that and his inability to consistently score goals. But, let’s be honest, he would be choice 1B in our current squad.

It really annoys me seeing Thiery Henry still banging in superb goals for New York Red Bulls…….

Honestly, we should have signed him after his barcelona stint……. even as a player coach capacity because 1) people like joel campbel would thrive with that sort of player on the books 2) people would want to come to arsenal to learn off Henry, no doubt about it.

3) Sunderland & Stoke city are 2 games this year where i thought, “fuck, we could use Thiery right now for the final 15”

Still banging in goals for fun. Love you titi.

he will be a top golden striker and then will be sold to united city or barca

…or he could turn out to be average and full of himself and we could sell him to Spurs. Don’t limit the options is all I’m saying.
