Craig Bellamy

Bellamy started his career at Norwich making his first-team debut in the 1996/97 season.

Kop Quote

Mark Lawrenson

"Joe was what I would describe as a genial man who, even before he got the job which he inherited from Bob, was always extremely well respected and liked by the players. He was very thoughtful about his football, very approachable as a coach and a manager.

"The biggest tribute I could pay to him would be when he got the job I think every single man in the first team squad were desperate for him to be successful. He was following a formidable act in Bob, and I think one or two different people outside of Liverpool thought maybe it was going to be too difficult an act to follow. He was brilliant and the nicest thing I can say is everybody in the first team dressing room really, really wanted him to be successful, and that was obviously reflected in his first season."

Following last Sunday's final round of Premier League fixtures in the 2021/22 campaign, Liverpool fans tasted the disappointment of the narrowest of loss possible in the chase for the domestic title. Having taken a late 3-1 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers, unfortunately for us, Pep Guardiola's Manchester City side staged an incredibly late comeback of their own over Aston Villa to reopen that single point gap at the top of the table, sending silverware their way.

A Masterpiece!
