Same old Bellers, always whining!

By Lee Ryder on Sep 21, 06 03:57 PM

If ever you wanted to look for the textbook method of holding a grudge then the best person to speak to is Mr Craig Bellamy, formerly of this parish.

It's been said on this blog before that it could be argued that Bellers has been missed on the field of play since being shown the boot by Newcastle United last year.

He got too big for his silver boots at Newcastle and was shown the door.

Something he is still clearly cheesed off about on the evidence of his raging last night.

His style at running at people, scoring goals, making goals and generally getting right up the nose of the opposition has been missed at St James' Park.

And last night we got a dose of it ourselves at Anfield.

Craig Bellamy

True, the little Welshman didn't notch against United.

But he certainly relished winding the travelling Toon Army up didn't he?

Yes he was getting loads of abuse but isn't that normal when you are a former player who's left in controversial circumstances?

Some of us would still have him back that's for sure.

But what was he thinking after Liverpool's first goal?

What he could have done was turn round and get on with the game.

What he did was pick the ball up and try to blast it towards the Newcastle fans and missed hitting instead his own fans, nice one Craig!

Then when somebody decided, wrongly, to launch a bottle at him from the United end, he decided to take a drink.

Hardly a clever move.

But even then he wasn't finished, trying to nail Celestine Babayaro in the closing stages, and then a senseless attack on Terry Mac in the tunnel when the game was already won.

Terry Mac had spoke of Bellers at the press conference that resulted in his umpteenth return to Toon but at that time it was common dressing room opinion.

So why get involved?

What goes round comes round Bellers but if he's fit for the home game it's a fair bet he'll be in for a red hot reception.

Had he took the taunting by United fans - much of it in reference to his relationship with the watching Alan Shearer - with a pinch of salt, he would have made his life much easier when it comes to next February when Liverpool come to Tyneside.

Perhaps he needs to give Chris Waddle, Gazza or Andy Cole a ring before the game, just to get an idea!

That is why the ONLY good thing Souness did was get rid of him.I still wish we had such a natural goal scorer like him at the Toon but one who knew his place in the whole of football.
Bellamy thinks he's the best in the world, but how can he be he's Whelsh for gods sake!!(sorry to any Welsh toon fans i may have offended).
I only hope we have the last laugh when Liverpool win nowt and he ruptures a knee ligament( i hope).

To be perfectly honest I'd rather Bellamy was back at St James', warts and all, and that the Ronald Mcdonald wannabee, Mr Mcdermott, was back at his beloved Anfield!

gren said:

The guy will never learn, yes he is a talented footballer but his mouth takes him down to gutter level. He loves winding people up and it is just a matter of time before Liverpool find out what he is like, and hopefully like Newcastle, give him the boot. He is a bad example to young players coming through, in contrast to Shearer who was always a true pro and will always be looked up to by the players. Bellers will never ever get that respect.

what did you expect. bellamy is an accident waiting to happen.problem in this modern day football, there are no hard men to sort the little gremlins out, so they continue to dominate with the verbal warfare.

Ian Teasdale said:

Yes Adam your right Michael Owen was the other good thing Souness did, I only hope that when he comes back he still has his pace. On the other hand Shearer lost a yard or two after his knee injury and he just had to change his style of play, because he has an excellent football brain like Owen(and unlike Bellamy who has no brain at all)

I think the world of football can be split into two groups when it comes to Craig Bellamy .Those that loathe the little urchin and those that have not met him yet !

c,mon lads whats all this nonsense about the only good thing souness ever done..... what about scotty parker the bloke is the dogs nuts as well you know and if nothing else he replaced our captain for a like for like in the commitment dept.And as regards to Bellers previously i have said on this blog the bloke is a worky ticket but was our worky ticket but truth is he has done it this time after his latest performance so lets put that one to bed ... as regards to macdermot ,Terry is a time served signed up member of the Newcastle Faithfull so talk of him going back to Anfield is rubbish..dont really get to involved in what other people post on this blog but enough is enough..i remember when kk walked into that press conference and i fell off the chair and was gobsmacked at John Halls masterstroke and was a true kk fan and if Terry was good enough for him he was good enough for me and nothing the bloke has done since has changed my opinion so stevie hills comments touched a nerve and sorry steve but you have no idea......bad result in the burgalars backyard but what a goal..three points against the other half of the criminal duo up for grabs tomorrow..keep your chin up tel..jackie

see the little waster has had another outburst delcaring all and sundery at newcastle want to see him fail and we are jealous of the fact he is pplaying at liverpool.i for one could gice a monkey's about that immature nightmare,was never a great fan of his when he was at the toon,craig bellamy should stop put what little brain he has into gear and start to grow up.i totally agree with a previous post that in a few seasons time he will be plying his trade in the lower devision,his biggest assest is his pace,once he loses that,he has nothing else to fall back on....as he certainly doesnt have a footballing brain....

Snapper said:

Love him or hate him two things are for sure, 1. Mr Stupid will always be just that, and 2. He will NEVER score 20 goals a season.

Scot said:

Craig Bellamy (or Bellers as my Dad and I always call him) was probably OK off the field - he just needed to grow up a bit. He was a great player - but a little bit too high - spirited.
