Best player in the division in 1st half of the season - acknowledged by all pundits, not just we fans. If something has changed and Bellamy says it is for the worse, then it IS! I really think Mancini's approach has been very arrogant - completely reworking the playing style when all we needed was tweaks at the back. We used to be scary! This is just another example of his seemingly "I won Serie A, so I must be right in all leagues" approach. Dont want him to go, but he needs to back the hell off Bellers and let him get himself fit.

Mancini sucks if he cannot manage Bellamy. Bellamy's class.

Bellamy plays his with heart on his sleeve, similar to the way he lives his life. Like you say JT_daniel, Mancini has to keep this sort of person under control otherwise he'll lose the dressing room and we can't have that can we?

I like both of them but its not beyond the realms of possibility that both could be gone at the end of this season. Mancini for failing to get good enough results and Bellamy if a new manager came in and decided that they don't want him. At this moment in time I would guess that the manager would be in the safest position of the 2, with City in 4th place as he is the one who picks the team, if there is really a clash of personalities.

Bellers for me, he'd give bobby a nice Burnley Wallet.

Bellamy has had problems at every club he has been. He isnt particulary liked within football, but he is loved by the fans. With a checkered past such as bellars, im gonna support the manager on this one. One player cannot let his unprofessionalism and bad attitude affect the dressing room and manchester football club.
