Lee Camp had a rough time of it against Nottingham Forest. I won’t say he was directly at fault for either goal, but on both shots, I felt that a more talented keeper would have done better.
The frustrating thing is most fans believe we have at least two better shot-stoppers in the squad already. It doesn’t seem likely that Garry Monk will recall either Stockdale or Kuszczak anytime soon though.
When I polled supporters yesterday about keeping faith with Camp, the vast majority feel the 34-year-old just isn’t good enough to retain his place in the side:
It’s a delicate situation. Monk has told both Stockdale and Kuszczak that they have no futures, and with that being the case, he has looked to other options. However, if their replacements are costing us points, you would hope the manager may revisit it in the future.
For the time being, perhaps recalling Connal Trueman would be the best bet? He didn’t do a lot wrong in the first two games of the campaign, and he may save a few more shots than Camp as well.
