    I don't want to piss on anyone's chips here but most professional footballers are mercenaries who move about for their career.

    I think he took a hit on his wages to come here. It was a big deal for us at the time. Doesn't make him a good manager though

    So Bellamy had a career plan then which involved coming to City and maximising the opportunities presented to him?

    We're holding him to account for having that audacity?

    Re: Bellamy

    For me he did nothing but good for us in both spells and the emotion the 2nd time when we got promoted seemed genuine

    Interesting article on Wales online as to why he returned and the fact that Anderlecht would welcome him back

    For me would absolutely love to see him as our manager - don't care who he supports - think it is worth a shout and could be the start of a long term plan - the alternative at the moment with McCarthy is a probable relation scrap

    As others have said he seems to have done well at Anderlecht

    At least we wouldn't be bored. I'd love to see how it would go.

    Managers don't stick around long anyway.

    Not going to happen given how things ended for him here.

    Read what I post before commenting, might be better moving forward. Some fans hold him up as a good manager due to the fact they see it as some big home coming. I've pointed out that this is bollox as he's a big Liverpool fan. That's it, if you want to argue whether footballers are mercenaries or not I'm sure someone else will oblige

    Re: Bellamy

    Originally I thought he would make a poor manager as he has the knack of falling out with people and was/is a volatile character that would not be a good fit for developing youth or getting the best out of senior players. However, he has played for the best team in the land, has worked with youth at Anderlecht - a team who prides itself on developing players and has worked alongside Vincent Kompany who by all accounts has done a good job in Belgium. I'm now coming around to the view that Bellamy should be given a chance at some point.

    He's unlikely to leave a job in a City which he is obviously attached to and has the drive and knowledge to develop youth and get the best out of the limited players we have at our club. It's worth a shot at some point - but not necessarily now - especially if we become seriously threatened with relegation. However, first I would like to see any managerial change accompanied by changes at the top in the whole way in which the club buys and develops players.

    For those who don't understand him or doubt his credentials read his autobiography. It's s great read and shows you why he has everything we need right now in a manager.

    Just read the WOL article and it seems to me that he needs to get off the pity pot…feeling sorry for himself for working away from his family and needing counselling fcuck me he needs a reality check of what normal folks daily struggles are currently.

    So you haven't read the autobiography. Read that for a true image of the guy where he is forthright on both his pluses and negatives.

    great read

    Yes he was a Liverpool fan growing up, plenty were his age from all over the UK ( can hardly beat him with that stick ) BUT City were his 2nd team, the 2nd result he looked at

    When he came to us, it was a bit of a dream for him, playing for his hometown club, helping us get promoted

    the guy does hold CCFC close to his heart, we have heard that from numerous sources

    He did a good job with the youth set-up here, maybe some of his coaching methods were not upto todays " sensitive techniques "
    Kompany appears to rate him, which must mean something, maybe he has learnt from his time with us

    would he make a good manager for us ? ? ? lets be honest at times we are a basket case of a club, so why the hell not give it a whirl

    Do you have any knowledge of mental health issues?

    So rich, successful people can’t have problems?
    I’m sure that’ll comfort the families of people like Gary Speed, Robin Williams, Kurt Cobain, etc.

    That's why I asked him about his understanding of mental health issues.

    You can have all the money in the world and it won't necessarily help you with them

    He got as far as assistant manager at Anderlecht, so he must have some ability.
    He quite probably needs some out of the game, though, or else he would surely have stayed at Anderlecht.
    I see him as misunderstood and I wish him well in his recovery.
    He was one of the manager's assistants. Being a good assistant doesn't make you a good boss. All you have to do is look at his CV to see that stability and continuity are not his strong points.

    All relative isn't it. A working class man in the UK lives like a king compared to others around the world. Both can have their demons.
