The loan deadline day capture of Geoff Cameron by Queens Park Rangers from Stoke City had certainly gone over well with fans owing to the US internationals Premier League experience and fans were incredibly quick to welcome him to the club.

The 33-year-old joined us for the remainder of the 2018/19 campaign and he brings with him significant top-flight experience, international experience and provides cover in defence and midfield boosting Steve McClaren’s options.

Not only is he capable of doing a proper job performance wise when he settles in but he will obviously play a massive role in mentoring and supporting the younger lads we have at the club and it’s easy to assume that given he’ll play a leadership role in the dressing room, he could also have a positive effect on our more senior players and maybe help take the strain off them and enable them to more focus on their own performances.

The arrivals of Tomer Hemed and Nahki Wells saw Toni Leistner kick on with the pressure suddenly off him, so I can only hope Cameron’s arrival has the same kind of effect. He came on as an extremely late substitute against Birmingham as we took a point and although we may have to wait a few weeks for him to settle in – in terms of his pitch performance – his off-pitch performance should kick in straight away.
