DJ Campbell 'available' for Rovers trip

This Is Lancashire: DJ Campbell DJ Campbell

BLACKBURN Rovers striker DJ Campbell is available for selection for tomorrow’s trip to Yeovil after returning to training.

Rovers announced last Thursday that Campbell had ‘been given time off to spend with his family’ after his arrest and subsequent bail by police probing spot-fixing allegations in football matches.

That meant the striker missed Saturday’s 3-2 home win over Millwall.

But Gary Bowyer yesterday confirmed that Campbell was back at Brockhall and preparing for the Yeovil clash.

Rovers boss Bowyer said: “He’s trained with us Tuesday and today and he’s a normal squad player now so he’s available for selection.

“We just have to keep monitoring how he is.”

Asked if he would have any problems selecting Campbell, Bowyer said: “No. We’ll just judge him as every other player.”

Lee Williamson will return to the Rovers squad tomorrow after recovering from the foot injury that ruled him out against Millwall.

The match will come too soon for fellow midfielder Corry Evans, who this week started running again after two months on the sidelines with ankle-ligament damage.

But Bowyer said: “We hope to get him back and reintroduce him soon.”

Don't want Campbell or Williamson to play full stop. I don't think either of them are any better than what we have already playing and although doubtful I would get shut of both in Jan. Evans on the other hand can get back as fast as possible as he will strengthen the team.

It's nice that you miss me so much.

To play this player given the recent allegations of match-fixing would be the single biggest disgrace in the history of English football.

What is your club thinking? Seriously? What happens if he gets booked? What happens if he misses a sitter (again)? What happens if he's convicted of match-fixing in April, will the games he's been involved in between now and then be called into question? Could Blackburn Rovers be leaving themselves open to a possible points deduction?

BRFC would descend to an all time low by fielding a player allegedly involved in such depravity. Says it all about the morals over at Ewood Park.

You deserve everything that is coming your way. Disgraceful.

Whatever next for Laughingstock FC?

For once I do agree with you though - it would be a disgrace if we named him in the squad, although I can see the value in keeping him fit (although personally I'd have him train in isolation). Maybe Bowyer is just beingf diplomatic.

Anyway, finally a sensible comment from my little 6 fingered friend Mark!

Not entirely sure why you are convincing yourself my name is Mark but crack on if it makes you feel better. Shall I call you Dave?

Blackburn surely have to play it safe and suspend the player until the allegations are either proved or dismissed. I don't see how this will blow over given that 5 people have already been arrested. There must be stacks of evidence in support of the allegations for it to be taken this far.

Is Campbell the final insult to Blackburn fans in 2013, or is there time yet for another disgrace to surface?

The stupidity of the modern day footballer apparently knows no bounds. Maybe clubs should put them through an intensive common sense course to give them the basic skills they are so obviously lacking.

p.s. Any chance of you giving me my underpants back Dave?

Well he is supposedly a goal scorer but we just have not seen it yet but Bowyer wants him on the bench so he has "options" what we really need is the defence sorting out and Robbo back in goal promto.

Sorry, thought I'd sent them back with Mrs. WLUV - only took them as I could hear your 18 wheeler coming down the road and needed to get out quick. I should've known you'd miss them as you only have the 2 pair which you share woith your brother :-)

In any event should he come any where near the touch line this would bring further embarrassment to a once proud and well respected club - so come on GB see some sense and keep this chap away until the out come of the investigations against him!!
Nothing surprises many of us any more on how this 'club is run and the depth that it has fallen in terms of integrity and respect' - well done to the Management and Board of Cowboys and Indians -

D J Campbell is a fine upstanding athlete who has served a number of football clubs with pride and distinction. He has battled through prejudice and injury to perform for Rovers and now finds himself the victim of scurrilous and unsubstantiated allegations, conjured up by discredited red top news rags. I am not surprised that you are one of the first to judge him. You have passed similar sentences on Mrs Desai and her generous family, the extremely hardworking Derek Shaw and a string of former unfortunate managers.
Good old D J will be proved innocent. He is so convinced of this that he has bet £100,000 that he will be cleared of ever placing bets or any impropriety on or off the pitch. You are a bitter little man and should show more respect and consideration for others, especially at this time of year. I really think that you owe DJ an apology. ( and me for that matter for all the hurtful and vindictive abuse that you have directed at me throughout the year.)

Two weeks ago I would have agreed with you but I wonder whether Derek Shaw is playing very smart move by making Cambell available and subjecting him, hopefully on the bench, to a continuous torrent of abuse from players and fans of all teams. If he refuses to turn up we can sack him for misconduct or breach of contract.

I think you are being a bit hard on Williamson as he has played quite well this season and is far from being our worst player. No comment on DJ.

Rovers will really be setting themselves up for a fall if he plays - they should follow Oldham's example with Montano & get rid or at least put him on 'gardening leave' until he is exonorated (if he is exonorated) - can't believe they would be stupid enough to actually play Campbell with this hanging over him & he must be pretty thick skinned to even want to step onto a pitch with his fellow players who he has alledgedly let down so badly let alone parade himself in front of the paying fans who no doubt will voice their feelings in no uncertain terms
Two weeks ago I would have agreed with you but I wonder whether Derek Shaw is playing very smart move by making Cambell available and subjecting him, hopefully on the bench, to a continuous torrent of abuse from players and fans of all teams. If he refuses to turn up we can sack him for misconduct or breach of contract.
like you our Mr Shaw doesnt have the brains for such a scheme!!
OUT WITH THE LOT OF THEM

In any event should he come any where near the touch line this would bring further embarrassment to a once proud and well respected club - so come on GB see some sense and keep this chap away until the out come of the investigations against him!!
Nothing surprises many of us any more on how this 'club is run and the depth that it has fallen in terms of integrity and respect' - well done to the Management and Board of Cowboys and Indians -

D J Campbell is a fine upstanding athlete who has served a number of football clubs with pride and distinction. He has battled through prejudice and injury to perform for Rovers and now finds himself the victim of scurrilous and unsubstantiated allegations, conjured up by discredited red top news rags. I am not surprised that you are one of the first to judge him. You have passed similar sentences on Mrs Desai and her generous family, the extremely hardworking Derek Shaw and a string of former unfortunate managers.
Good old D J will be proved innocent. He is so convinced of this that he has bet £100,000 that he will be cleared of ever placing bets or any impropriety on or off the pitch. You are a bitter little man and should show more respect and consideration for others, especially at this time of year. I really think that you owe DJ an apology. ( and me for that matter for all the hurtful and vindictive abuse that you have directed at me throughout the year.)
There you go again - in any normal business with an employee awaiting the outcome of a police investigation he/she would be suspended pending the outcome - normal procedure - so I don't owe anyone an apology for stating this - neither do I owe you one - 'pot calling the kettle black' comes to mind!

Gotcha! Hook, line and sinker. Was it the Mental Health team who described you as dangerous?

So let me get this right. You want to suspend him, with pay of course, until April at the earliest. In other words, reward him with a nice 6 month holiday with half a million pounds to spend. Nice one David.
Personally I would prefer to see him made to train every day, twice a day, seven days a week then play him in every reserve game and let him warm the bench in league games to bring him on for the last couple of minutes for a bit of ritual humiliation. Now why didn't you think of that?
Answer: because your head was not put there for thinking, it was put there plug your neck.
