Bellamy Blues

Bellamy Blues

These days Manchester City is being linked with every striker ever associated with Blues boss Mark Hughes, but why on earth is Craig Bellamy's name being mentioned?

The 29-year-old former Newcastle and Celtic forward suffered an horrendous first season at West Ham due to constant injuries following his £7.5m move from Liverpool last summer, and now the Hammers are thought to be attempting to claw back some of their transfer fee by off loading the Welshman.

Nevertheless, why on earth should Manchester City even consider signing the troublemaker?

Perhaps the club has no intention of doing so, however the tabloids have picked up on this story and by the looks of it, intend milking every drop.

Here is what Vital Man City regular Buzz Lightyear had to say on the subject:

'Please not Bellamy, not only is he injury prone, but there is something wrong with a player who cannot settle and clubs are very quick to offload him. Having said that Sparky had him and I just wonder if he would have him back...'

...'If you have a striker problem, wait a minute what striker problem? We have strikers and I always admired Bill Shankley for this he didn't sell a player and then get a replacement, he got the replacement first.'

...'So please, not Bellamy.'


Do you have an opinion? If you do, let's hear it.

I agree, definitely not Bellamy. I hate him, like i hate Barton. Players like him are not good for club Karma. I'd like us to concentrate our efforts on bringing SWP back. Someone like Gudjohnsen could do the job until Jo gets back and Benjani recovers. We are not that low on strikers anyway.

West Ham can keep the fool.

I agree with everyone's comments in the fact that we need to keep troublemakers like Bellamy away from the club. Think it would be a bad signing, as I feel he no better than anyone else at the club, especially at the fee being banded around in the press. One point worth mentioning though - he was immense at Blackburn under Hughes! Leave him alone Sparky, and set your sights higher!!

... and for those of a delicate disposition, here, dear hearts, is what I said before the swear filter cut in.

He has urinated on his fried potatoes too often. He will not be joining Manchester City Football Club.

Mark Hughes is a very good manager, and has a great record in dealing with with players like Bellamy. Im Sure Hughes could handle his antics. I rate Bellamy's footballing ability, but i would rather have, Milito or Cisse, But getting bellamy could not be worse than Corradi?

Bellamy is a good player; he didn't spend that long at Blackburn mainly because he was too good for them and when Liverpool came calling it would be hard for anyone to resist that step up. As we know at Liverpool, Rafa favours anti football tactics, which don't suit Bellamy, and his stint at West Ham has been plagued by Injury so I don't think he is as unsettling as people make out. Man City could do with a player like Bellamy, he’s a w@nker at times but you need that in your team.

i agree with you P.K. if you've got a strong manager (and welsh too) then you can really get the best out of bellamy who is one of the best british strikers there is today, opposition defenders hate to play him and on his day he can score for fun, he's fit as feck and a good leader but he's had more than his fair share of injuries recently and i hope he comes back stronger. i rate him

RK so Bellamys exit from Liverpool had nothing to do with the fact that he had a serious altercation with Arne-riise, joey barton style(allegedly with a golf club for the latter refusing to sing karioke with him). Knee problems throughout his career has played for 7 clubs since his debut for Norwich 1997. Norwich, Coventry,Newcastle,Celtic, Blackburn, Liverpool and WHU. (celtic a loan deal) but nearly 1 club a year. I have no doubt he has a lot of talent, but too much baggage.
