Did you see that Campbell tackle Arsene Wenger?
Well after all his gobbing off about the Shawcross tackle, Arsene Wenger has been characteritically quiet about Campbell's tackle in the Hull game yesterday. Now is it just me, or were the two tackles remarkably similar?
Like Shawcross's challenge, Campbell's tackle was utterly committed and ran the risk of breaking a leg if marginally mistimed or if the opposing player had the skill to move the ball in time. Of course Ramsey had the ability that the Hull player lacked. Campbell connected with the ball and so all was well, but had he been a milisecond earlier or later, the consequences could have been awful.
I am not criticising Campbell here - it was a brilliant tackle. But it illustrates perfectly Wenger's myopia. Admit you were wrong you French tosser!
