Lee Camp didn’t get off to the best of starts against Reading last night. Although he was not at fault for the first goal, he could perhaps have done better with John Swift’s freekick for the second.
The free transfer signing from Cardiff has a lot to prove with many supporters not convinced he is of the required level to be the club’s number one.
Here are what some fans are saying on Twitter about the 33-year-old:
Lee camp is stealing a living ???????? #bcfc

#bcfc went to Reading tonight, I can confirm that Lee Camp had no chance with either goal. However he’s got a strange upright gait for a keeper, looks like he’s got a serious neck injury, no way he could dive for anything I’m sure!

Lee Camp just dived to a ball that was 2ft away from him and still couldn’t reach it ???? #bcfc

Never put Lee Camp in goal, every again. Monk what are you thinking? #BCFC

Some are still perplexed as to why neither David Stockdale nor Tomasz Kuszczak have been recalled by Garry Monk:

It’s not fair to judge on one game, but there’s no doubting he can have done better with the free kick. He gambled by taking a step to the right when standing his ground would have likely seen him save the shot.
Personally, I would keep faith with Connal Trueman for the Swansea game as there wasn’t enough from our new signing to suggest that he would be better than the 22-year-old, who has a greater scope for improvement.
