'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Bellers To Wales, Ireland Back To Youth

The various sources abound with stories that Craig Bellamy has signed a loan agreement with is home town club Cardiff City.

Many fans are mortified at this as he was one of the best overall players last season and his contribution t the first team effort was priceless.

This move might be equitable for both sides. It gives Bellers the chance of seeking to help Cardiff's Bluebirds get into the top flight whilst living at home with his family, plus it ensures that he doesn't turn up in a Tottenham, Everton, Aston Villa or Fulham shirt and come back to haunt City. We just know he would have done!

Bellers would have been one of the first names in my 25 but something seems to have gone down at Eastlands and he has been shunted out the door.

The same route looks as though it is being used to unsettle or even remove Stephen Ireland, probably our best player 2 seasons ago. It is starting to appear that having a good season for City amounts to the kiss od death.

Ireland has been instructed, apparently, to train with the second string because he won't go to Aston Villa without a substantial pay-off. Although I can understand the motives here, surely this wonderful player wants to play first team football somewhere. If his opportunities are going to be non-existent at Eastlands surely the best option is to try somewhere else?

Certain publications are calling into question Mancini's man-management but at the end of the day if he doesn't want a player, it has to be respected as the Club looks to move forward and there probably isn't any real doubt that Toure Yaya and David Silva are better players that the 2 they will depose. I have stated on numerous occasions that I would have kept Bellamy as my insurance policy.

So City moves onwards and hopefully upwards and the margins can be quite brutal as we are witnessing now. We were effectively 2 goals against away from the Champions League last season (if we'd not lost against Stretford and Spurs) and a cynic might say only a minor tweek was needed.

What we are seeing is almost a major organ transplant with the written press relishing every move we make and trying to move in for the kill. City must be under so much pressure to get it right this season.

If Ireland is not going to make the 25 man squad, then where does that leave him? In the reserves, simples. I think the media arre making far too much of this, and the fact that he is almost definitely on his way out seems to be being overlooked. We cannot be sentimental about a player who so clearly flopped last season, and I don't think this is a snub, a humiliation, or whatever the hysterical hacks are calling it, it is simply a matter of Ireland not training with the first team squad because he is no longer in it! As to Bellamy, well he always said if he moved it would be to Cardiff, so I reckon the press are once again stirring (not to mention Ian Wright) about us not letting him go to anyone else. Read his statements - Bellamy did not want to join Tottenham, Celtic, Bolton, Everton or Villa - he wanted to go home.

Good shout my friend and a good balanced view. I think Wright is probably acting in pre-emption in case SWP starts to head for the greasy pole! He has stuck his oar in before.

Mancio is reknowned as a hardliner in Italy. Ask Paddy V. It looks to me as if he is out to minimise as many risks as possible going into a do or die campaign and won't be taking any *****e.

Anyone for pleasant FA Cup day trip to Cardiff In January?!
Johnny Baguette
Yeah I'm up for that JB - just as long as Beller's goals have knocked out Tottenham in the previous round. 'arry probably ain't the most popular person in that neck of the woods for so publicly dissing Cardiff as a step down!

You undermine the manager's authority, you're out the door. Besides he has a track record, good luck to him though.
