To Bellend Or Not To Bellend?

To Bellend Or Not To Bellend?

Reports have linked us to Liverpool striker Craig Bellamy for what seems like 30 years now. These reports seem to be increasing as rumours suggest Rafa Benitez is about to have a clear out at Anfield to freshen things up for another Premiership (failed) challenge next season!

Due to the fact he is one of the fringe players for the Reds, Villa are again being linked to the former Coventry and Blackburn player with reports suggesting Martin O'Neill will put in an offer for the Wales international who played for him on loan at Celtic.

Bellamy certainly gets a mixed reaction and appears to be coming a journeyman, unable to settle at any club and often causing unrest in the dressing rooms and on the golf courses, just ask John Arne Riise!

Mark Hughes is also said to be interested in taking him back to Blackburn. Bellamy apparently only left Blackburn due to the fact he was a Pool fan as a kid - or some other load of tripe like that!

So what do you reckon, to Bellend or not to Bellend?

He made 23 starts for Liverpool, 4 sub appearances and was replaced 12 times. In that time he scored just 7 Premiership goals and bagged two in Europe. On top of that he has been known to be injury prone. On the flip side, he has pace to burn and is a nasty snarling player, the sort Villa have lacked for years. Hmmm, tough being a manager isn't it!?

Our latest poll asks if you'd sign him or not.

It's all down to whether he wants to join us. With him, it's not just about the money. He actually took a wage cut to join Liverpool. We need a bit of bite, my only question mark is over his injury record

Liverpool want to sell to whoever wants to pay the most money too.

MON worked with him at Celtic, we need a Mr Nasty, it looks like a done deal - good enough for me.

I really hope we don't get him. We already have a striker with pace to burn and I would hate Gabby's development to be hindered by Bellamy. If we are looking at another forward surely we can do better. Also the point about him being a nasty snarling player is true and we could do with a bit more aggression at times, but surely aggression against the oposition and not your own team mates? For me he just carries too much baggage.

I would definitely agree. Although he's not good enough for the Bin Dippers, that's the only hard bit to take.

If were freshening things up for another "failed" premiership bid next year what are your complete waste of club building up to? Perhaps another FAILED bid for a 10th place finish is it. As for you tarzan and your brain dead bin dipper comment, why dont you go back to swinging from the trees with the rest of the monkey's. You put Darwin's theory of evolution to shame because i think you might actually be de-evolving. Were did you go to school? Clown college? Bet you got an "F" in custard pie throwing.

I reckon for the amount of money Bellamy would cost us, we could have a punt for Robbie Keane. Plus there are only four teams that have CL football three of which seem to have a fairly settled strike force. And anyway does the fact we don't have CL football mean we should buy someone for the sake of it, someone who lasted one season for a club we are hoping to be challenging in the next two years?
