New signing Craig Bellamy stole the show with a display and debut goal worthy of winning the 'man of the match' award. 8 out of 10 for me.

I hate saying this, but the stats speak for themselves. Job done and three points in the bag. Happy days.

That man Zab once again, liked the look of de Jong think he will be a great asset and if Bellamy keeps it up I may have to start liking him lol

Strange performance this one. Thought we took our foot off the gas a bit once we had the first goal, and looked to be cruising. As you say, the stats don't lie, and we clearly owned them. Just wish we'd go for the jugular sometimes when we're in that position, should have been 3-0 up by half-time. Good debuts, can't wait to see how Bellamy does when Ireland Rob and SWP are on his wavelength.

Didn't feel as though we had so much of the possesion at points in the second half!
