Kickette Fail File: Craig Bellamy, Cardiff City FC
A trip to the English Championship for our latest Fail File, Kickettes. Please leave your golf clubs at the door and follow us. Refreshments will be provided during the interval.
NAME OF APPLICANT: Craig Bellamy
POSITION/CLUB: Striker, Cardiff City FC (on loan)
BUSINESS UNDERTAKEN: Anger Management
CITED EVIDENCE: Photo (above)
KICKETTE VERDICT: Well, we’re not qualified readers of body language (to be fair, most of us in the Kickette office are barely qualified to travel unaccompanied to work), but from this photo we are able to deduce that Craig may still have some difficulty in dealing with his legendary anger in a positive way.
Quite what offence prompted him to strangle Reading’s Andy Griffin is unclear but it doesn’t really matter. Craig’s form in this area, along with the statement that he would be moving away from the ‘controversy and tension’ that surrounded his career at Manchester City has made our verdict very easy.
Craig? Large Fail File for you, m’laddo. Put the nice man down and come to collect it, please.
