There seems to be a bit of a witchhunt against Lee Camp because Swansea may have put in a bid for him 15/16 months ago and he may have been unhappy at the club following the massive fuck up that summer but i don't see why that should be held against him now even if it is true.
I'm sure that as an experienced proffessional he hasn't been sulking ever since and letting it affect his performences as i think has been suggested on here, i think he like just about everybody else at the club had a pretty poor season last year when comparing his form to the two previous seasons when he was excellent.
He does come across as a bit of an arrogant twat but i'm not too bothered by that or if he's a nice bloke or not, an in-form Lee Camp is a decent keeper at this level but if a better keeper is available and within budget then we should go for it if that's what SOD wants.
The most difficult and unwelcoming Present Forest player I have met was Blackstock. He was on our table for the players of the year awards and he was very hard to talk to and he just turned his back on the table and played on his phone all night.But I can see where people are coming from regarding how welcoming Lee Camp is.

Dexter sounds a right child!
I really wish we'd stop basing whether a player or manager is good enough for the club on their personalities and "likeability", who gives a shit? Yes we want them to represent us well, but that's a bonus and being better at their job is all that really matters unless they are club captain - and even then it only matters a tad more, so long as they don't do owt daft such as slate the fans.

I relate speaking to Dex and Camp the same as talking to my 98 year old Nanar. I feel that maybe Dex suffers with abit of anxiety, if you saw Soccer AM for example, you will know what I mean. Camp on the other hand is just an arrogant sod.
The rest of the squad that ive met are all genuine nice chaps. Even McGugan.

Anyone who's read Clough's autobiography will remember when Pearce found himself more "injured" then usual in our relegation season as things stalled over new contract talks (due to him wanting more money as a result of him landing the England captaincy). Some would argue (I think even Clough states) that Pearce's absence from the side was a massive contribution to our relegation that year, yet people still hold him in the highest regard but jump on Camp's back for not accepting the first contract we've offered him even though, unlike Pearce, he plays every game and is actually finding form.
It's daft and we lose players such as McKenna because some of our fans seem to think we're an established Premiership side who can afford to discard good Championship players - we can't and just because we've a bit more cash doesn't mean we want to be tossing aside the quality we do have.

Camp out! Camp out! Camp out!
Don't be like that mate! Oi mate! Why you being like this mate? Mate!
He needs the arrogance to make him a better keeper. If he signs, good. If he doesn't, I'd like the appeal on the keeper from Kuwait to be successful!
Roy Keane was talking about Joe Hart being too cocky i think theirs a fine line between arrogance and cocky.I think Hart can be cocky where a keeper like Neuer has supreme arrogance in his game.
Camp played well today, very well !
Perhaps making sure the 3 owners who were watching will now offer him a good wage deal to stay ??
Camp has just said on the radio that he loves playing for the club and wants to stay, it's just early days in contract negotiations.
I think unlike previous years contracts will be sorted much quicker than in previous years. Not sure who runs out in summer? Findley/Camp who else?
