Whilst recently scrutinising a list of players who started their professional careers at Norwich City, my eyes rested on Craig Bellamy. When Kenny Dalglish took him back to Liverpool last summer, I thought it was a very astute piece of business, and anyone witnessing Bellamy's impact in their recent win over Newcastle, and the League Cup semi final against Manchester City just the other night, may well agree with my judgement. Love or hate him, there are few players in the British game that can influence proceedings as well as Bellers. I think it is possible that he will only be fully appreciated ten or fifteen years after he has stopped playing. He is that kind of player. And it is then that supporters will get nostalgic and reminisce at his outrageous skill - and annoying ability to needle everyone around him. Is he the best player to come through the Norwich City youth system? Probably. And certainly few can get close to matching his accomplishments after leaving Carrow Road. So I hope we are never slow in making it known that his early years as a professional was as a City player - 91 games, despite spells of injury, and 34 goals. Not bad for a kid! Sadly, for the time being at least, many current Norwich fans can't quite take him to their hearts. That will change, in time. Because he is a very good footballer. And was, a very good Canary. .
