Will Craig Bellamy Fit In

Google language translator


Manchester City new signing, Craig Bellamy is expected to make his debut against Newcastle United on Wednesday night, but will the Welshman fit in?

Manager Mark Hughes is known to be one of Bellamy's greatest fans, but what do you think? Was he a good signing? Was he worth the money?

Listen to what former Blue, Andy Morrision had to say.

I think he's a good player who'll do a good job. I think he was too expensive but at the end of the day in our current situation the money doesn't matter.................... as for 'sweetleftfoot' - take a look at http://craigbellamyfoundation.org then decide whether you are someone who spends 700k of his own money to help others is the 'knob ed'.

Thanks for your input, SLF. Andy Morrison - City Legend. Top man. Dug us out of it 10 years ago.

Thanks MCFC_Goatboy. I had no idea Bellamy was involved in a great project like that. I admit I just thought CB was thuggish -- because of the bad Press he has had. Also I'm touchy about potential "bad eggs" in the squad. But I'm impressed with that foundation, and if Bellamy has indeed spent that kind of money to help kids in Sierra Leone then I'm certainly going to show respect for the man. Well done Craig Bellamy!

He'll add more to your counter-attacks with his pace but if its goals you're looking, you better start pinning all your hopes on Robinho. If you don't sell Jo, Benjani, Caicedo, bring in some others who can ACTUALLY score to help Craig, then this transfer will prove to be another waste of money!

SLF thanks at least we know he is complete with no bits missing and at that price I would think so too.I sorry unitedforever, scoring isnt a problem it defending thats the problem.Hence the question de we need another striker on another thread.

Well, FU. Ahem. We are the second top Premier league scorers after Chelski and have hit 56 goals in 33 games in all competitions so we're hardly under pressure to secure another striker. Meanwhile Robinho has hit 11 goals in 16 league starts.

Ye theres no big pressure to sign a striker when youve got midfielders like ireland an SWP who can contribute as much as most strikers id say theres more pressure to get another centre back before the window closes to stop are bad defensvie record.

Glad that CB has another string to his bow to balence out the nutter with the putter moniker. Would be great if he could get 10 goals for us in the rest of the season!

I really hope he proves me wrong and turns out to be a good signing, he has my total support now that he will be wearing the sky blue shirt. Are we now going to play 4-4-2 with him as a second striker?

he will have my full backing now he is a City player......but I think he will be under a lot of pressure over the next couple of months to prove to the fans and critics that he was not a waste of money...

I think Hugesy bought him for a specific job and not along term City player.CB is the instant impact player that he wants to get the team motivated to winning games.

If we intend playing a second striker should we not have already tried Jo in that role as it is supposedly his most effective position?
