    I wonder what they'll do on the wages - 50/50? Maybe Bellamy's chipping in himself . . .

    :D:D

    If it happens then fair play 1927 for calling it, I didn't have any faith whatsoever.

    I'm sure. The financial facts would be nice is my point, though the parties are entitled to their privacy.

    He's a proper charmer, isn't he? A right fucking reckoner.

    Actually, SI, he's done a fuck load of work for charity. Seriously, a huge amount. Google 'the craig bellamy foundation' - it'll change your view of him.

    No, it won't. He's an arrogant tosser, charidee or not. Quite fucking right he should do charity work when he's made nine and a half quid while I've been typing this line.

    Have a read anyway. He's making a genuine difference to lives of thousands of children.

    bellamy is a great guy tbf, even if he does support cardiff. genuinely comes across as a reformed guy after being a complete wanker for a lot of his career.

    Watched the intro video. Good on him. Obviously cares and wants to put something back into the world.

    The moaning knob.

    if he signs for cardiff he'll go back to being a scumbag mind ;)

    He speaks highly of your charitable work

    On the one hand we all grow up - eventually, on the other, if his stats are that good why is Mancini getting him out of the dressing room and away from the 25-man squad . . .

    When Bellamy clobbered Riise with that golf club, he gave half his fine to Wrexham, so he went up in my estimations a bit then. Mind you, the whole racism thing was unpleasant and there is no doubt he's been a knob in the past. Cracking player though, this is a great signing for City.

    Because they have about twenty forwards

    Shouldn't he have given it to whoever was fining him :confused: I'm pretty sure I can't pay my Blockbuster fines to Amnesty :hmm:

    Proper Tidy I killed a man

    I think the way it works with Liverpool club fines is that they can nominate who the fine goes to, and he wanted 50% to go to Wrexham.

    See: http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/teams/w/wrexham/6511139.stm

    Eta - we stayed up that season too, in no small part because of the loan players we were able to bring in - Proctor, for example, scored the winning goal v the Shrewsbury yokels which helped to keep us up, and scored again in the final day relegation dogfight v Boston.

    Admittedly Proctor was terrible the next season and we went down, but hey.

    Fair enough, decent system :)

    Wish Blockbuster would employ something like that :D

    BBC Wales tv news now reporting the story. It'd be the biggest transfer coup I can recall from this division. He'd make City an incredible force.

    People still go to Blockbuster? Retro. :D

    I have to say I haven't for a long time, but it was the only commercial venture I could think of that charged fines :oops: (Libraries don't count as I think they're worth supporting)

    I won't believe he is coming until i see him play on the pitch in one of our shirts.

    Fingers crossed though.

    It ain't gonna happen.

    For a while I really believed

    Ah, the old semi-concealed "but what have YOU done?" accusation, despite me saying "good on him". But this thread isn't about me, is it?

    So you'll be jogging on, now.
