Its no surprise that the bookies have reacted to Craig Bellamy joining Cardiff by slashing the Bluebirds from 14-1, to a top price of 10-1 on them lifting the championship title.
I remember when Bellamy was leaving Newcastle United after 4 years, I was forever saying Boro should go in for him.
The critics said he was too much trouble. He’s an angel in comparison with Mido, he plays games and doesn’t sit on his backside getting money under false pretences.
Last season he made 40 appearances for Manchester City, scoring 12 and creating umpteen goals for his team mates.He was arguably City’s player of the year.
The bad boy tag has followed him wherever he’s gone, but if you look at on the park over the last 8 years he has been sent off only once.
Cardiff manager Dave Jones must be absolutely delighted with his new arrival. To get Bellamy on a years loan, at the peak of his game and injury free is some coup. I would go so far as to say its the most outrageous signing of the summer.
Enough on Bellamy.
Sheffield United at home on Sunday, It’s a game we have to win to stay in touch with QPR and co.
Strachan has certainly got his work cut out regarding the starting eleven, with Flood and Thomson ruled out.
In 3 games Strachan has chopped and changed consistently, this has to stop .
In 2 league games we’ve had 3 shots on target in open play, that’s a frightening statistic.
Boyd and McDonald have been starved of service, this must change.
Brad Jones finally signed for Liverpool for an incredible £2.3 million, I wish him all the best.
Stand in Jason Steele has been excellent in the last 2 games, but there is no doubt Strachan will bring in a number one keeper.
Sundays opponents have obviously appointed Gary Speed as the new manager, after the sacking of Kevin Blackwell and no doubt the Blades will be a lot sharper than in there opening 3 performances.
If Hartlepool can beat Sheffield, surely we can!
