Ok, heres what i have heard. Big Sol is gay as they come and someone has threatened to expose him. Don't know all the details but it could be in sundays papers so look out for it. Not tooooo sure about this but he is meant to have been at it was Jermaine Jenas who plays for Tottenham.

The above is not my thoughts, just what i have been told from someone who usually is a reliable source.

(1) Who is Sol Campbell?

(2) Why are we supposed to care whether he likes men, women or farm animals?

He is a top English soccer player, he has played at the highest levels and for England. He's won numerous titles, cup and league. He was taken off at half-time in the last game, got dressed and walked out of the ground, which is unual for a player to do. And now he has disappeared totally and his manager and the team he plays for doesn't know where he is.

Thank you for that illuminating and relevant info. I would bet that's a really MAJOR sports story in Europe right now, isn't it? I hope the dude is physically ok.

hehe... i heard he was terrible first half, but i wasnt aware hes gone walk about.

He reminds of Justin Fashuno, and he was gay.

Yeah it is a big story over here. Not so much the Gay thing, its that he did something total out of character and unprofessional. If a player leaves the field by injury, substitution ect. They usually sit on the bench with the rest of the team that are not playing. Or if it is real early in the game they get showered and then sit with the rest of the team/manager and watch the rest of the game, as afterwards they have team talks and how the game went ect ect.

So for him to walk out of the ground and disappear is a real strange thing to happen. The manager has stated after the game that Sol was in no fit mental state to play. It has been in the papers that he has difficulties in his private life and no-one knows where he is.

But his solicitor has said that Sol has no personel problems what-so-ever, he is fine and is taking time to gather his thoughts and wanted some breathing space. And that he will be back at Arsenal on monday.

Other reports are saying the he went to NY, some are saying that he is still in London. And some are saying that he is going to quit football altogether.

So untill we hear from Campbell as to whats happened or someone else, no one knows the real story.

It has been an unsual set of events.

He was meant to have been at training on monday and everthing was meant to be fine. Funny how its now Thursday and he has conviently got an ankle injury and will be out for 3 weeks. C'mon who are they kidding.....

Did anyone buy the News of the World today and see the article about 2 premiership players and a musician, having nice little cosy 3somes? No names as of yet, but one is a million pound midfielder and someone who has been capped a bit for England.

Ring any bells?

seriously TRD? and yip, it ties in nicely with Campbell.

Is there any online sources for it?


posted on Feb, 12 2006 @ 02:51 PM
Yeah serious....

ON me bed, Sony! The News of the World today reveals how two bisexual Premiership stars made some VERY dirty phone calls-using a mobile as a gay sex toy.

The players-one capped several times for England- were caught on camera cavorting with a pal well known in the music industry in a homosexual orgy that will shock soccer.

The three men-who cannot be identified for legal reasons-are pictured wearing just vests and boxer shorts as they tackle each other in ways fans never expected.

hehe.. something dodgy going on

Do you think if the rumours persist, Sol will come out and admit it?

any ideas who the musician was?

Either Elton or Rick wakeman

I repeat:


Don't we care how players perform ON THE FIELD? Why should we care if their off-field fondnesses are for men, or women, or both, or for farm aminals, or some combination thereof?

I have a lesbian friend in California N.O.W. who tells me that if it weren't for lesbians, the stands would be pretty much empty at many WNBA games. And SHE lives by the Sacramento team which finished 25-9, winning its conference and finishing 1 game behind the team with the best record in the WNBA. Considering the caliber of play at the top level of that league, it would be tragic to see it fold, so right-on for their lesbian supporters.

I once read an excellent article about the WNBA in S.I., followed soon thereafter by a cretinous letter to the editor, where a father said he couldn't go to WNBA games with his family, because women held hands in the stands, so from now on he was only taking his kids to good "family values" events like:

(1) Pro hockey games [heavyweight wrestling, but for real, with guys spitting out teeth and looking like they were in the same kind of 10-minute bar fights I was in when I was a young drunk]; and

(2) NASCAR, where some fans await major collisions, and many of the greatest, sooner or later, wind up dead. I don't know enough about NASCAR to comment further, but there's certainly no denying that in the past, many fans have died because things like tires going super-fast flew into the stands (I understand they've taken steps to reduce these deaths, and I sure applaud NASCAR for this).

Now, if a person's religious or other beliefs are overwhelmingly anti-gay, and they don't want their children exposed to women holding hands, that is their prerogative--just as it is a hate-filled black dad's right to keep his kids away from whites and all their hatred against blacks. I happen to despise both types of hatred, but I'm not the parent of either type of child, so my opinions don't count. The same goes for Jewish parents' right to steep their kids in Semitic values and do everything they can to induce, coerce, etc.--lawfully--their kids to marry other Jews, something which long ago affected me personally, and which I also find repugnant.

George Brett is either the second or third greatest third baseman of all time, in terms of career value. He's unquestionably behind Mike Schmidt, and, although it's close, I think he's behind Eddie Mathews--no matter how much Bill James loves Brett for being his hometown boy. During Brett's career, he was widely rumored to be gay because he was single late into his career.

And that meant WHAT, exactly? Brett won batting titles in THREE decades, a feat unmatched by anyone, INCLUDING Ty Cobb, who played NINE of his 24 years in the 1920's, when the live ball came in, and who posted averages of .378, .389 and .401 in that decade, but still never won another batting title.

Brett was a 12-time all-star with an average of 6.66 runs created per 27 outs, in a career centered in the run-scarce decade of the 1980's, and played his entire career in the cavernous home park of the Royals, where your HR's had to be either down the line or just about murdered.

Brett was a 12-time all-star with an average of 6.66 runs created per 27 outs, in a career centered in the run-scarce decade of the 1980's, and playing his entire career in the cavernous home park of the Royals, where your HR's had to be either down the line or murdered.

Does anyone, in retrospect, think it matters whether Brett liked men, women or farm animals in his playing career? IF he was gay--and that's a big IF, because I sure don't know--I'm sure team showers made him very uncomfortable, not excited... exactly as I would feel if I were a reporter and were sent by some tasteless idiot boss into the women's locker room to interview players after the Wimbledon quarterfinals.

Hell, suppoes for a moment that Barry Bonds is gay and his wife is an expensive front? Believe it or not, I would sympathize with the guy, because god only knows what s--- he would catch once he retired and some unduly nosey teammate outed him.

Do we really CARE what baseball, hockey, soccer, American football, hoops, track, or whatever kind of sports star is gay, hetero, bi, into sheep, or god knows what? As long as it's all nonviolent and between CONSENTING ADULTS, I can tell you that I sure as hell don't care, AND I DON'T THINK IT'S ANY OF OUR BIZ. Unless one has spent too much time listening to Pat Robertson or Jerry Falwell, I invite him or her to consider why he or she cares.

We've obviously got a right to feel as we please. If that means disliking, hating, distrusting or wanting to "out" gays, so be it. I will admit that, for reasons I have no idea about, I've had a double-digit number of lesbian friends, but never yet a close gay male friend. I wouldn't feel ashamed to, nor would I feel constantly compelled to let everyone else know I'm straight.

Jeez. Is this post long enough? I hope several of you find it useful.

BHN did you read my reply to you? Would have saved that long post you just did.

Yeah it is a big story over here. Not so much the Gay thing, its that he did something total out of character and unprofessional.

That refers to his behaviour as a sportsman, not his sexual preference.

Another player did what Sol did yesterday, walk away from them and not do his duty by remaining with the team wether he is playing or not. The player in question is Nicky Butt and the team he plays for are considering kicking him out, even though he is only on loan. So i consider that to be what happens on the 'field' as you say as its a team effort wether thay are playing or not, helping in training with the younger players, being a substitute ect ect.. and what Sol and Butt did is just not the done thing..

Sure, TRD, I read it. And I read all that followed.

I know question number 1 has been answered.

Question number 2.... its affecting his playing and like TRD says, he might chuck it all together. In the Premiership (The top English league) there is supposed to be a number of gay players but whoever they are is hush hush. Not something thats out in the open. In this case, there is a name and it looks probable, i think its only natural it draws talk.

There was a reliable story from The Grosvenor house Hotel on Park Lane that involved Sol Campbell and a male escort.....But it was hushed up by his mangement and the Hotel.....

Was Sol Campbell, Jermaine Jenas & Will Young

Hmmm - not sure how relevant this is, but I'll post it anyway.

My best mates sister (ex gf as well, but that's another story) worked at spurs for a couple of years at the time that sol and ginola were there.

There were a lot of rumours floating around back then as well about his sexuality - which might explain some of the chants from the spurs fans over the years when he played at arsenal and now pompey.

However, that aside, the one reputation that sol had was for throwing his toys out the pram for little reason.

It seems he's never been what you might call a consumate professional - if he didn't get his own way.

Lots of training ground rows, arguments with the staff, massive arrogance and a huge chip on his shoulder.

And yes - she knew all the players on a personal level - although she wasn't close to any of them.

Arse-nal and Arse-ne say it all. But him randomly walking out during a match is really weird. Maybe he was going to get exposed by Jenas...if you catch my drift. Talk about match fines and suspensions maybe Wenger and his ass man (assistant manager) will track him down like...wait I won't go that far.
