Bellers is a Bluebird

A bit late with this post, but I am on holiday!

Following the capture of Jason Koumas (see previous post) on loan, rumours abounded last weekend that Craig Bellamy of Manchester City & Wales was close to signing on loan for City. Having been left out of Man City's Champions League squad, the writing appeared to be on the wall for Bellamy, arguably one of the Premiership's outstanding players last season. Mancini clearly didn't want to flog him to any premiership rivals either, so something had to give. Allegedly several clubs were in the hunt for Bellers, including former employer Celtic, but in the end the lure of playing the majority of his matches in his home city and close to his family who have never moved from the area swung it City's way.

If Koumas was a big signing, this is massive, and a real feather in the cap to the City management team who have pulled this off. If nothing else it'll ramp up the gates at the CCS, but I'm sure too that Bellamy, along with Koumas, Drinkwater and Olifinjana the new signings, will provide City with the player power to mount a serious promotion challenge. I hope so, because now, nothing short of promotion will do/

I'm back of my holiday in time for Saturday's match v Doncaster, and I'm really looking forward to it. It'll be a cracking atmosphere.

Up the City!!!!
