As the season draws to a close it would be fair to say that of all the positions Blues need to strengthen, it would seem the goalkeeping spot would be top of the list.
Lee Camp has done a job and at 35 years old he hasn’t let us down. However, in my opinion, he shouldn’t be our number one at the start of next season.
As confident as any fan can be under the current set up at Blues, I am sure a new keeper will be targetted in the upcoming summer transfer window.
Joe Hart, at 31 years old, is a class act and his rapport with the Blues supporters would be wonderfully received should Garry Monk decide to bring him back.
Since his early England days when he was brilliant and commanding, Joe suffered a loss of form and dropped down pecking orders at a number of clubs-mainly out on loan. This time around Blues could well be the right fit for all concerned. Wages and contracts permitting, Joe could become Garry Monk’s first serious buy.
This season with the weird situation of having Stockdale and Kusczak gathering mothballs and Camp stepping in, it is time to have a ‘proper’ goalkeeper who deserves that title.
Over the years we have had great keepers who have left us with fond memories, we now need to continue the trend. Step up Joe Hart. Trueman as number two would set it up nicely.
