Fenerbahce want Campbell
Arsenal defender Sol Campbell is a target for Turkish club Fenerbahce, according to reports. The 31-year-old England centre-half is rumoured to have been offered a three-year deal worth £70,000 a week. When he moved from Tottenham, he chose Arsenal for the $. Considering his age, the contract Fenerbahce are offering and Arsenal's 1 year policy, he could switch for the cash. But I think he'd prefer to stay in England.

Barca taunt Henry

Barcelona have taunted Thierry Henry for his decision to remain with Arsenal by telling him he will never again be one of the World's very best strikers. According to a report in Sunday's News of the World, Barcelona goal scorer Juliano Belletti told reporters "He needed to leave London to become one of the top strikers but if he doesn't leave Arsenal, he never will"

Cruyff queries Henry's Barca snub

Johan Cruyff believes striker Thierry Henry may live to regret his decision to snub Barcelona and stay at Arsenal. The Nou Camp and Dutch legend said: "In the cold light of day, without looking inside his head, I think that he has made a mistake."

Cruyff added: "He has taken a decision in the heat of the moment when you should make them with a lot of consideration."With his track record of what he has achieved in France and England it only lacked a spell in Spain to give him the rubber stamp. This spell could have been at Barcelona."There are big decisions to be made in every footballer's career. This was the moment in Henry's life, not just as a player but as a man. He could look back and regret it. Barca would have changed him. Henry would have had a big opportunity at the biggest club in the world to make himself regarded as the best player in the world. There would have been pressure on Henry. Everyone would have been looking to see how good his football was with the biggest club in the world but now we will never know. It is a pity. They wanted him."

Cruyff believes Barca will find it difficult to defend their European and Spanish crowns next season.

if arsenal would really get 8 million pounds for campbell, then let him go, that would be another great transfer sale for wenger, overmars, petit (both of them for 25 million pounds!) veira (it was the begining of the end of his career) and now campbell!

about the whole henry vs. barca standoff
told u henry is bigger than barca
they lost out on him and now they cant belive it
can u belive arsenal turned down two 50 million pound bids for henry, even though he has a year left in his contarct
only arsenal would turn that amount down!
emirates baby!

oh and to add another transfer rumor, but this looks like a done deal

Henry ;*

5ala9, it’s over, Henry proved to be a player out of this world. No need for the shi’ talk. He is one of THE best players if not THE best player.
Again he proved himself, by SKIBBING Barca. How do you like that! HA.
