Bellamy positive

Good stuff from my favourite player at the moment:

“We are tougher and stronger,” admitted the striker whose energy and commitment has been a big part of the last two wins.

“There is a big difference from when I walked through the door. We had an abundance of quality and could rip teams apart last season but were also capable of not tracking runners and not picking up the points we may be should have done on occasions.

“The quality of player that has come in has improved the mentality there is no doubt about that...

“I really am enjoying it, I feel as if I can do a job all over the pitch,” he enthused. “I am enjoying playing in a team with real ambition.

For all his problems earlier in his career, Bellamy has been a model pro since Hughes bought him last January. In fact, he could well be one of Hughes' most underrated signings. Not only did his goals last February arrest a very damaging slide into the relegation zone - winning us games against Newcastle, Middlesbrough, Copenhagen and helping us take a point at Anfield - but he has remained a committed and valuable member of the squad even after the signings of three new strikers.

And with Adebayor due to sit out the next few games with a ban, Bellamy could well be back to spearheading our attack. He deserves it.

the derby will be tough. the rags response to spurs early goal was pretty comprehensive, unfortunately for us they have the added incentive of proving that money can't buy everything. still we look so resilient at the moment that even without adebayor, we should expect a draw at the least.
