It appears that England’s Football Association did finally listen to the voice of reason after all after the Sol Campbell hearing regarding his alleged “violent conduct” against Manchester United’s Djemba-Djemba during the Community Shield game in August 2003.

Sol Campbell escapes with a £20,000 fine and no ban. This is good news not just for the player and for Arsenal, but also for English football in general. As noted yesterday, there is a dire need for consistency in such decisions, and this verdict could be a first step in that direction.

It remains to be seen whether this consistency will extend to the case of the 6 Arsenal players (and 2 Manchester United players) investigated following the Old Trafford clash in September.
