As announced officially on 25.06.01
(some time earlier on NUFC.com!)
on the action figure to see what kind
of impression he made at Highfield Road....
Cardiff-born Craig Bellamy told the
South Wales Echo on Monday 25th June:
"I want to play the highest standard of football I can and achieve things in the game, and I believe things will start turning around for this club.
"I know another couple of players are in the pipeline to strengthen the squad and the club are determined to be successful next term.
"The move to Newcastle will make me a better all-round player and linking up with Gary Speed can only improve our understanding on international duty as well.
"When you have such quality around like Speed, Alan Shearer and Kieron Dyer, it can only enhance your own game.
"I just can't wait for the season to start."
Coventry fan Jonny Barton who runs the City website, LAST commented, "Just thought I'd let you know that we are all doing cartwheels here over the Bellamy deal!"
