I’m counting down the top ten players who have made me laugh and (almost) cry since the start of the Premier League. The list doesn’t only take into account how these players performed on the field, it also takes into account how they performed off the field too… In fifth place, Craig Bellamy.
In total, Craig Bellamy has amassed £45 million pounds in transfer fees. He is the Cardiff born centre-forward who started his career at Norwich and went on to play for six Premier League clubs. Undoubtably a great player, but it will probably be his behavioural skills that most will remember him for when he retires.
On Sunday, Cardiff City beat local rivals Swansea City 1-0 at Swansea’s Liberty Stadium. The win meant a lot more than three league points to the Bluebirds who, earlier in the season had lost to their neighbours in their own Cardiff City Stadium. Local boy, Craig Bellamy, Cardiff’s on loan striker from Manchester City, settled the tie with a long range effort. Now, not even a week later, the money makers at Cardiff have spotted a retail opportunity and released these limited edition t-shirts in commemoration of the win.
If you are a Cardiff fan, you can buy your t-shirt at the club shop, if you are a Swansea fan, tell us what you think below (without swearing).
