Camp Urges Club To Be Honest With Fans On Signings

Camp Urges Club To Be Honest With Fans On Signings

Lee Camp has today told the Evening Post that the club should be more honest with supporters about the financial constraints with which new manager Steve Cotterill has to work under.

Camp will find few fans disagreeing with him, when he says that honesty is the best policy when it comes to recruiting new players in the future.

Cotterill's predecessor Steve McClaren, might rightly argue he had the rug pulled from under him as far as promises made to him about transfer funds on his appointment. After only 10 games in charge, the former England boss resigned from his post, with the lack of signings and a slowness in acquiring his targets cited as one reason for his failure at the City Ground. It should also be said that a run of poor results did not help his cause either.

Camp said. 'From a fans point of view, you just want people to be honest and tell it how it is. If the board come out and say there is no money and no players, they might not like it but I am sure they can deal with it. We are all humans, we can get our heads around it. So as long as everyone is honest, it will be fine.'

I admire Camp for coming out and saying what he has and he's right in what he says about us not liking what we may hear. He's also right, in that whilst we might not like it, we can't really argue with the truth, as anyone with any sense would understand the decision especially during these difficult financial times. It's the continued lies and deceit to supporters about supposed targets, that has wound so many fans up in recent years.

The club could find that supporters actually understand and even back a policy of openness and honesty, even if it does sound less ambitious than they have led us to believe in the past. Since the appointment of Frank Clark as Chairman, it looks as though that policy may have been implemented already. Here's hoping at any rate.
