DJ tackle did not raise any eyebrows

This Is Lancashire: DJ Campbell is booked DJ Campbell is booked

IT was a striker’s tackle if ever there was one.

DJ Campbell arrived after the ball had gone and slid in to foul Aaron Cresswell during Blackburn Rovers’ 3-1 defeat at Ipswich Town last Tuesday night.

Cresswell had cleared the ball up the line from his position on the left and Campbell was committed to a challenge and collided with the Ipswich defender sending him sprawling.

It was a clear yellow card.

The 32-year-old was late and although it was not high or two-footed it was certainly a poor enough challenge to warrant a caution.

Referee Fred Graham saw the incident and duly booked Campbell for the foul – there were no complaints from the Rovers striker as he accepted his punishment.

That was that.

No-one batted an eyelid.

It did not warrant a mention in the match report in the Lancashire Telegraph the following day, such was its innocuous nature.

There could be a myriad of reasons as to why Campbell made the tackle.

He was back in the side after a lengthy absence through injury and suspension and he was playing against one of his former clubs. He enjoyed a productive and prolific spell at Ipswich last season.

You could put it down to over-exuberance.

Except there is now an allegation that something more sinister was going on.

Campbell has been arrested and bailed until April after claims emerged that he had deliberately got himself booked at Ipswich as part of a spot-fixing scandal.

The incident occurred just inside Ipswich’s half with the home side leading 1-0 at the time.

Campbell was making his first Rovers start since March having picked up an ankle ligament injury in the summer before being sent off on his return to the side as a substitute at Blackpool.

The former QPR man was replaced on 76 minutes by Rudy Gestede.

Of course Campbell is innocent until proven guilty, and we won’t know until April what the next chapter in this case holds.

One thing is for certain, it is the last thing Rovers needed just when they looked to becoming a more stable club given the turbulence of the last few seasons.

The club deserves a break.

i have looked at it and can't see any reason why this booking is any more (or less) blatant than any other normal booking throughout the gamut of football league fixtures.

the suspicions of the authorities must be raised by something over and above the tackle itself that means it warrants investigation - but if the only evidence is the tackle itself - it is going to be very hard to prove guilt. if there is substantiated evidence to the contrary....then one hopes that justice follows the right route

Maybe it's not just the tackle that the authorities are bothered about - but the fact thousands of pounds worth of bets will have been placed on him receiving a yellow card in this match is probably what they are interested in.

Exactly, but the authorities have highlighted it, which suggests they knew something could happen before the game and were watching for it, and the foul was quite professionally carried out.

The fact he came on a substitute is crucial, could that have been the trigger for the in play bets going on? (allegedly) Which in turn triggered the arrest.

PS - I did recently mention on another thread before this all blew up that his number of bookings and sending offs far outnumbered his goals, draw your own conclusions from that.

It's the betting patterns that usually give it away. Like if a lot of money went on Campbell getting sent off just after his introduction as sub. Of course it's all pure speculation at the moment about alleged wrong doings.

Roll the tape back two minutes and you will see he did something to the Ipswich right back, Luke Chambers. That time the referee just gave a free kick. I remember saying to my son that that was unusual and that he would red-carded before half-time.

Obviously cheating.
Points deduction looming a well, this circus of a football club just cannot keep offering up these gems, probably find out after it all that the ringmaster in all this was good old Shabby Shebby.
you are making a lot of assumptions the allegation has to be proven in a court of law before you can say he is cheating
as for rovers will suffer a points deduction
that's just speculation and wishful thinking of a couple of dingle fans
But DJ Gamble has assured us that will happen, its a nailed on cert. lol.

Maybe it's not just the tackle that the authorities are bothered about - but the fact thousands of pounds worth of bets will have been placed on him receiving a yellow card in this match is probably what they are interested in.
Is there any evidence of this "fact"?
Why have you any evidence to the contrary?
Look at other sports where match fixing has occurred and you will see similar patterns to these allegations. Snooker and Cricket being classic examples.
How else would bets be placed, what's your theory?
