Sherwood Doesn't Expect Spurs To Do Well

Former Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood has claimed that he does not expect his former team to reach the top four in the coming campaign. Sherwood was relieved of his duties after just over six months in charge of the team. He was replaced by Mauricio Pochettino, who had done extremely well on a limited budget at Southampton. The season started in an extremely positive manner for Tottenham after winning the opening two matches. They also comfortably qualified for the Europa league group stages after going through the qualification stage.

Cliff Jones Believes Bellamy Should Be Given Coaching Job

The former Tottenham winger, Cliff Jones, has said that the Football Association of Wales should give some kind of coaching responsibility to the recently retired player Craig Bellamy.

Bellamy featured for the last time in club football in May this year for Cardiff City against Chelsea.

He called it a day saying that taking the pressure of professional football was not possible for him anymore.

He had already quit international football last year. So, that was technically the last game of the playing career of Bellamy.
Bellamy has said a few times in his interviews that he would not mind trying his luck in the field of coaching/ management once his playing days are over and Jones reckons that the 34-year old can really turn out to be a good coach.

Craig Bellamy retires from football

Former Wales international Craig Bellamy has announced his retirement from all forms of football, saying that his body couldn’t take the rigors of training day in and day out anymore.

The 34 year old Cardiff City striker played the last match of his professional career in the 2-1 defeat at the hands of Chelsea in the last game of the Premier League season which confirmed the team’s relegation to the Championship.

Bellamy, a former Wales skipper, made 78 international appearances for the Dragons before retiring from international
football in 2013.

Bellamy Expected To Retire

Cardiff city manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says that striker Craig Bellamy will decide upon his future in the next few weeks. The club were relegated to the championship after finishing bottom of the Premier league table. Bellamy, who has been one of the top strikers from Wales in the last few decades, has been a major reason towards the club coming close to staying up in the division. Even though they finished bottom of the table, it was only in the last few weeks of the campaign that relegation was confirmed. Bellamy is out of contract at the end of the season.

RODGERS HAS REGRETS

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has stated that one of his biggest regrets has been the inability to work with Craig Bellamy. The former Liverpool striker is currently playing for Cardiff City and he is unlikely to join a club like Liverpool once again.

He spent a couple of seasons at the club in two spells, but left the Reds in the summer of the 2011-12 season. This was when Rodgers came to the club to replace Roy Hodgson. Rodgers has since taken Liverpool to new heights, while Bellamy has been playing with Cardiff for the last few seasons.

BELLAMY COMES TO LIVERPOOL

Cardiff city striker Craig Bellamy will be coming up against his former club Liverpool during the weekend. Even though he is unlikely to start the match, the Welsh international has revealed that he wants Cardiff to win the encounter. Three points will be crucial for the relegation threatened team, who sit just one place above the bottom of the table. Even though Bellamy says that he wants Liverpool to lose this weekend, the striker has stated that it would be a great feeling to see Liverpool win the league title once again.

Bellamy Banned Due To A FA Charge

Craig Bellamy (Welsh footballer) will be facing a suspension for around three football matches because the Football Association has filed a charge of violent conduct against the Cardiff Forward.

The violent conduct took place in a match of the Premier League that was held on the 8th of February, 2014. The match was between Cardiff City and Swansea City. Craig Bellamy actually clashed with Jonathan De Guzman during the 2nd half of the football match. The Football Association confirmed on 9th of February, 2014 that the violent incident did occur and the association was aware of it.

GABBIDON BACKS PULIS

The former Cardiff city and West Ham defender Danny Gabbidon has said that the arrival of Tony Pulis has worked to the benefit of Crystal Palace, as the former Stoke city manager has been able to organise the defence. Pulis has been out of work after leaving Stoke city at the end of last season.

He returned to management after taking over the difficult job at Crystal Palace. The club have been installed as the favourites for relegation, which is something Pulis has never experienced in his long managerial career. However, many expected Crystal Palace to go down even after the arrival of Pulis.

STILL A BIG PLAYER

The head coach of Cardiff City Malky Mackay has insisted that the 34 years old Welshman Craig Bellamy still is an important player for the team even though he has only made 6 appearances for the Premier League team in this season and was left on the sidelines in their last few matches.

“Craig is absolutely part of and involved in everything we do here.He has been rested over the last couple of matches, but is always in contention." said Mackay

Cardiff City is struggling in the Premier League fighting their way out of the bottom relegation spots alongside Sunderland and Crystal Palace as those are the only 2 clubs behind them in the standings.

BELLAMY RETIRES

Craig Bellamy confirmed his retirement from international football some weeks ago when he played during Wales’ match against Belgium and later revealed it to be a very emotional moment for him.
"To soak in your national anthem. I'm speechless about it, but it is really nice. It's something I do cherish.

"It did hit home a bit that I'm not going to be this side of it again.

"I've enjoyed every second of it. To reach 78 [caps] and the injuries I've had down the years. I'm delighted."

He also expressed his desire to manage Wales in some way or another. Although he does not seem to be as appreciated in his club as he is in the international level.
