I think he will sign 4 us, id be quite happy he is a good leader and has bags of experience, he has lost his pace but could do a job 4 us, would also like to see Richards and Naughton added to the defence.

I don't think he is young_jonah, thought he'd returned, unless he has another break (we are all allowed a few holidays in a year and the managers job love him or loathe him, is an awfuly high pressure one!)

Hmmm indeed. As a Pompey fan, I get used to reading that Sol is going to another club. I think at the last count I'd heard stories of at least 8 destinations. Villa makes 9

I think Curtis Davies is going to be a really good player and having someone like Campbell to bring him through can only be a good thing. With money as it is, brining in good experienced internationals for free must always be good business. Campbell and Owen? Yes please!

Im not sure about Campbell, at 34 he brings the experience. Especially in helping develop davies and cuellar. I guess he would be a decent signing for free. but in all honesty id probably prefer some1 like upson, a little bit younger and still a decent leader. Hell.... get both of them in :-p

Two positive things: One, we have lacked proper organisation at the back for a while, something he is good at. Two, without Laursen we lack a defender who attacks the ball, something Campbell does. For me, it's good business if we can get him in. The only real negative I have is that he has lost a bit of pace but I think his positives outweigh that - and not just cause I scored that two to one! ;-)

UKTony, what was your opinion of him last season? I only saw Pompey a few times so I am sure you'll have seen him far more than I did.

I think campbell would strengthen the squad,And after all that is the whole point.I saw him quite a bit last season and he seemed to have got himself in great shape again,.I could even see him doing a season in the first team and then dropping back for a couple of season as a squad player

Can't see it. It was a great coup when we got him to Pompey & has been fantastic for us. Last season was a bit of a struggle for him & us & I doubt if he has that much more to give. Villa are on the up & should be looking for better than Sol can give.

He may not play in every game but we are a bunch of young players at the moment. He has experience, he is origanised and he can teach our younger backline a few things i'm sure. Bring him in i say - the cost is zero.

Surely we've got coaches for that? I reckon we should look for a defender who can defend and run a little bit when he has to at least.

Would be a good signing IMO. He has a big/strong presence in the middle of the defence and we don't have that now. He body checks you, you will know about it.

PTP you have a point about the coaches but they're not on the field, helping them through minor mistakes, covering and generally leading by example.
