Lee Camp - Sign Him Up

Lee Camp - Sign Him Up

It's not often that a loan player attains the status of 'fans favourite,' but after only 15 games for Forest, QPR keeper Lee Camp did just that.

His two injury time penalty saves and in particular the one against the Sheep, are now the stuff of legend and that's what endeared him to the City Ground faithful. As well as those two saves, he was also a bloody good keeper. He commanded his area and was able to distribute the ball to a Red shirt. He was also good in the air and had the confidence of our defence. These are all qualities sadly lacking in the present keeper, Paul Smith.

Camp has as good as sent out a 'Come and get me' plea, in an interview with BBC Radio Nottingham. It's clear he wants to come here and as clear as the nose on yer face that the fans would welcome him. It appears that all that's left to do, is for NFFC to sign him.

The good news is that he says there's no ill feeling between himself and the manager, following a supposed bust up in their time together at the Sheepdip. Billy Davies has also gone on record saying that he has no axe to grind with the player. So it seems the path has been cleared for him to make the move.

But, the rumours doing the rounds today, are that we are haggling over a £300,000 fee that QPR are demanding. Although he might not be first choice down in W12, he would be up here and his form for the Reds' would suggest that he's easilly worth it. The only stumblinhg block to a possible move, could be the injury to Radek Cerny. Camp has been filling in for him the last two games, but he's almost back to fitness again. It would be criminal if we miss out on this one. It's up to you now Forest. Get the deal done.

I thought he was rather distasteful to the away fans today - I think you'd be disappointed if one of your players was giving it large to the opposition supporters throughout the game. He is a very good goalkeeper that I think you'll agree had a fairly poor game today. What on earth was he up to for that second goal! If you sign him I don't need to tell you that you'll be getting an excellent keeper at a cut price. And we'll be left with Cerny the clown.

I'd be as mad as hell if one of ours did the same. Have to admit that today wasn't his finest hour, performance wise, but we'd love him to sign.

I am here to warn you guys - he might be a good goalie, even a great one. But he has a really bad attitude - he doesn't want to have to fight for his place in the 1st XI. So beware! If you get him - you better not drop him - coz he wont try to win his place back; but will look to find another club who will put him straight into their team. And this is not sour grapes at all - but the bad attitude I have witnessed from Camp since being dropped at the beginning of the season, and his behaviour at Derby 2-3 seasons back. Good luck, Forest - I'm sure we'll be playing each other again next season!

£330k seems reasonable - especially, if there is no 'other' fees attached! Loan with a view to a permanent move?
