Hammers Bosh Bellamy Bid

Google language translator


West Ham United have reportedly boshed Manchester City's second attempt to sign Craig Bellamy.

Mark Hughes is known to rate the Wales international and is doing what he can to entice the cash strapped London club into selling the 29-year-old striker.

However, the very latest on this saga is that West Ham owner Bjorgolfur Gudmundsson has said no to City's second bid, even though the Icelandic executive's financial assets are in turmoil following the collapse of his country's banking system. As the saying goes, every penny counts and West Ham are holding out in attempt to squeeze every pound out of the deal.

Vital Manchester City says...

Do we really want Craig Bellamy? If the answer is yes then how about a straight 'until the end of the season' swap with Brazilian, Jo. That way we can off-load Jo in the summer, return Bellamy, and then sign a decent striker.

Any Blues out there inspired by the money being offered for this journeyman with a track record for destabilising dressing rooms? At this rate, I cannot see Robinho sticking around to play alongside the Welsh Dickov. We must be desperate.

Why on earth would West Ham want Jo?????

Why on earth would we want Bellamy for that sort of money??????

Bellamy is a short term stop gap to boost the squad, but he does have a history of disruption within the squad and too many changes of club for him to be of any lasting use. You might as well offer 12m and Jo to Newcastle for Owen and Givem. Podolski, is available at 10m. There must be otherd out there just as good for less money, or perhaps younger that the money is well spent for the future. I would not be sorry to see us walk away from this one.

We need to let go of this one (and RSC) lets look more at Europe . I have been saying for a long time now Poldolski is a far more attractive option for the price

Looks like not hust yet, with another bid expected according to the Times http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/sport/football/premier_league/article5505322.ece

Hughes has no contacts so hes signing a friend. And a poor one at that, bellamy rarely scores and he is injury prone. He is past his best and would have little re-sale value. Basically hes crap!

13 days and counting......and we still dont seem to be signing any more players......almost half way through the window.....WTF is going on...??

We should alos bear in mind that there will be no resale value for this clown at his age.
Johnny Baguette
There is a difference between "never-say-die determination" and "bloody-minded stubbornness." Hughes is displaying the latter in his efforts to sign Bellamy whatever the cost (not just money, in this case). I really can't see Bellamy fitting into the team. Maybe we should go for Joey Barton, Robbie Savage and Lee Bowyer as well. We'd have the full set of head-bangers then!
