Bellamy Myth


Lando78 sent Vital Manchester City the following.

Sky Sports commentator and statistician, Martin Tyler has provided us with some interesting information before tomorrows game.

When asked about Bellamy scoring against his old teams myth the 64-year-old 'man with the mic' said...

'Craig Bellamy has played for seven different clubs in the Premier League, but his Premier League goal scoring record against his former teams has declined as time has gone on...

Norwich: 'Bellamy's first top-flight club was Norwich City. He has only played against them once in a league game (for Newcastle in 2004/05) and scored.'
Strike rate: 1/1 (100%)

Newcastle: 'He has never played a Premier League game against Coventry City since leaving the Sky Blues, but boasts a good record against his next club Newcastle. He has played against the Magpies five times since he left St James' Park and has netted three times.'
Strike rate: 3/5 (60%)

Blackburn: 'Since leaving Ewood Park, Bellamy has faced Blackburn in four league games, scoring on two occasions.'
Strike rate: 2/4 (50%)

Liverpool: 'He has faced the Reds twice in the league - for Man City and West Ham - since leaving Anfield. However, he is yet to score. He thought he had opened the scoring for Man City last season, but it was credited as a Alvaro Arbeloa own goal.'
Strike rate: 0/2 (0%)

West Ham: 'He has faced the Hammers twice for Man City since leaving Upton Park and is yet to open his account.'
Strike rate: 0/2 (0%)

Cheers Martin, keep em coming and lets hope Bellars gets on the score sheet tomorrow.

Liverpool are 1 of his 2 former clubs which he hasn't scored against yet, well he did before the FA took one off him for a very minor deflection at Anfield last season, so heres hoping that he gets a goal tomorrow.
