SOME piping hot pics of Craig Bellend at his new club:
I hear he was actually rather charming and gracious at his first press conference as a Cardiff player. That’s not the Craig Bellamy we know and love.
Bellamy explained why he joined Cardiff on loan:
“My wife and kids live here and I’ve spent the last six years travelling up and down the road,” he said. “I left home at 15. I’ve always wanted to come back but I wanted to come back at the top of my game.
“I’ve come down to the Championship willing to put my neck on the line. It’s probably the hardest football decision I’ll have to make in my career.
“I grew up in this league and it’s tough, and that gives me excitement as well. It’s a great challenge for me.”
“With the players we have I think we’ve got to be looking at promotion.”
Bellamy’s arrival must be a huge boost for the club – a boost that may well propel them to automatic promotion. If that happens, a new folk hero is born.
