Man City's Bellyache To Tottenham?
How ironic would it be if Mr Bellamy were to join Tottenham this summer? After all Scott Duxbury said about not selling to the Cockyfools, how frustrating would it initially seem if Redknapp was able to pick him up for less than he would have paid to buy him direct from ourselves?
Well, ironic or not, I hope it happens because, personally, I do not understand Bellyache's appeal. Yes he is a ferret, yes he winds up opponents, but is he really a top class Premiership striker? Not in my book. His goals per game return is nothing better than ordinary at a ratio of 1 in 3 games played and his fitness record compares with Michael Owen's.
But more importantly, I can't see how Tottenham are going to use him. They already have Defoe and Keane and their immediate need would appear to be for a big guy up front - in the style of Crouch or Kenwyne Jones. If 'Arry shells out for Bellyache, it suggests he is planning to offload either Judas or Keane some time very soon. More unrest at the Lane beckons - and isn't Bellamy just the ideal guy to stir the hornet's nest?
