Sol Campbell: There will be non-white PM before non-white England boss

Sol Campbell has moved away from football and into politics.

Former Tottenham, Arsenal and England defender Sol Campbell has spent the past few months playing a different kind of game. After a career spanning two decades where he won 73 caps and every major honour in England, the 40-year-old has moved into the world of politics and tried to secure the Conservative Party nomination for London Mayor but did not make the shortlist.

ESPN FC caught up with the former defender to discuss football, politics and what the future holds.

Cristiano Ronaldo or Laurent Koscielny: Whose skill is better?

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti says that Real Madrid might consider offloading Cristiano Ronaldo if a record sum is offered.
ESPN FC's Craig Burley is at odds as to why Rafael Benitez would not originally say Cristiano Ronaldo is the best player at Real Madrid.

While limbering up with his Real Madrid teammates in Shanghai on Wednesday afternoon, Cristiano Ronaldo executed an ultra-casual, no-look pass that garnered hushed awe from the fans in attendance.

Just to top it all off, Ronaldo also chucked in a nonchalant wave to the crowd just for fun.

Meanwhile, in North London, it would appear that Arsenal's...

Premier League season preview from Arsenal to West Ham

In an exclusive interview with ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop, Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says letting Petr Cech go to Arsenal was tough but Thibaut Courtois is one of the top three goalkeepers in the world.

Until the transfer window shuts, it is hard to get too dogmatic about how the Premier League season will unfold. But right now Chelsea look solid bets to retain their title. Manchester City are always more dangerous when fighting to regain the crown, but is their defence good enough? Arsenal should get closer with their array of creators. Yet somehow they always hit a bad patch and fail to sustain a challenge. Signing Petr Cech in goal will not on its own change that. Manchester United have splashed...

Danny Welbeck could be odd man out for Arsenal this season

Manager Arsene Wenger defends his transfer policy as Arsenal get ready to kick off new season against Chelsea in the Community Shield.

When Danny Welbeck moved from Manchester United to Arsenal, his aim was simple: to establish himself as a top class centre-forward. After a bright start, including a memorable hat trick against Galatasaray, inconsistency and injury saw his fortunes fade. Now, with talk of a new striker arriving in north London, Welbeck could find himself squeezed out of the club where he hoped to make his home.

Welbeck's troubling situation is compounded by the fact that he will miss the start of the season, as bone...

How does Arsenal's spending compare to the top six? Get your calculators out

ESPN FC's Ross Dyer analyses how both Arsenal and Chelsea conduct their transfer business after Jose Mourinho commented on the Gunners squad and spending.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says his Premier League rivals are now the ones attempting to buy their way to glory, a charge that used to levelled at the Blues.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is already ramping up the mind games and we're still a little under two weeks from the start of the Premier League season.

Indeed, with Chelsea set to take on Arsenal at Wembley on Sunday in the Community Shield, rival manager Arsene Wenger has already become the focus of his attention.

"If you add up the amounts clubs have spent in the last three or four years I think maybe you will find a surprise," Mourinho said, in an obvious attempt to add pressure on the Gunners...

Arsenal need a better striker than Olivier Giroud to win the league

Olivier Giroud is set to pen a new deal that would keep him with the Gunners through 2018.

Being a football fan is a constant battle between logic and hope. Most of us are perfectly balanced, can recognise a good player -- and even more readily, a bad player -- when we see one. We can criticise our team just as clearly as any other, and leave blind loyalty at the door when it comes to objectively assessing the players in front of us.

But sometimes logic is swept aside, especially during preseason. We all know these games mean nothing, really. They're extended practice sessions that people...
