Many Birmingham supporters have been suggesting that the Blues should look to sign a new goalkeeper this month, despite Lee Camp having won his place back in the side in recent weeks.
The Blues have experienced problems between the sticks throughout the campaign, with Camp’s form during the first few months of the season often inconsistent, and the keeper was guilty of making a number of high-profile mistakes which cost Birmingham at vital times during games.
Pep Clotet initially remained patient with Camp, but eventually following back to back defeats at Cardiif City and at home to Fulham at the start of November, the Spaniard elected to bring Connal Tureman into the side for the Blues’ starting line-up for the subsequent ten Championship matches.

However, the Blues shipped 14 goals in seven league games during December and the start of January, which meant that Clotet decided to recall Camp to the starting line-up for the Blues’ 2-1 win against Blackburn Rovers in the FA Cup third round at St Andrews.
Camp impressed enough to earn his place back in the starting line-up in the Championship, and he has since started in the win at Luton Town and 1-1 draw at home to Cardiff City at the weekend, although the keeper was still somewhat unconvincing at times in the second half against Cardiff.
That has left Birmingham fans thinking that Clotet should be looking to bring in a new number one before the end of the transfer window, with the Blues needing to tighten up their defence if they are to find some consistent form.
Here then, we take a look at what Birmingham supporters have been saying about the need to replace Camp on social media…
Yes, unfortunately. Lovely guy, but dropped the ball twice on Saturday when he wasn't under pressure. We need to bring someone in a bit younger, who can give us a solid few years. Watching Butland yesterday hit home just how much we are missing a reliable young(ish) goalkeeper.

Absolutely. He’s simply not good enough.

We do, but if worst came to worse we can cope until summer.

Have you seen how many times he has dropped the ball since he has returned
