DJ Campbell – The Sitter Show

What do you think of when DJ Campbell comes to mind? Prolific goalscorer or horrific chance misser?

Campbell has become notoriously known for his comical misses which have cost his team dearly in the past. So what is it that drives Blackpool’s striker to squander these chances? Nerves? Or is he just that bad?

In his latest sitter, Campbell was put through by teammate Charlie Adam and with no one else in sight, it was a classic one-on-one situation with West Brom keeper Chris Kirkland. Campbell strolled inside the box, gathered the ball and stroke the ball agonisingly wide.

Campbell have continuously missed chance after chance in the big games but Ollie has instilled his confidence in the young striker but frankly, I don’t know why.

Other notable sitters for the Englishmen came from the earlier half of the season and it involves a series of comical chances spurned by him, including his horror effort against Manchester City and also his awful miss against Sunderland just two and a half weeks ago.

About Dylan O'Neill

Football mad Irish 20-year-old. Living in Dublin so I've had a keen interest in League of Ireland for the last 2-3 years and used to write about it on offtheupright.blogspot.com, focusing mainly on UCD's limited fortunes as well as the Irish national team. I started to merge this interest with gambling two years ago to moderate success so have continued to do so since! View all posts by Dylan O'Neill
