I think it was Maurice Moss in the I.T Crowd that said it best.
‘Egg, and my face, were in alignment’.
After all the stuff I’ve said about him so far this season, although I do maintain some of it is necessary, for him to turn out being the hero last night, even I have to admit that I deserve a bit of flack that I’m sure is going to come my way. And I couldn’t be happier.
Lee Camp turned out to be the hero for Birmingham City last night as he continued his impressive streak of penalty saves as he stopped two in the penalty shootout to send the Blues into the next round of the F.A Cup as they emerged 4-1 winners after finishing the game 2-2.
And even after splitting the fanbase in a debate just a few hours before the game, it looked as if public opinion had swayed entirely to ‘pro Camp’ in the aftermath of the shootout as fans flocked to social media to throw their support behind him.
Just look at that smile 😍😍😍

Did the Blues get lucky against Coventry?
It might be a bit presumptuous to say, but do you think he’s done enough to earn a new contract? Or is there still some way to go?
