Craig Bellamy – Newcastle United Cover Star

8 years ago

Craig Bellamy has announced his retirement from football today and to mark the occasion we have done a retrospective of The Mag covers that he featured on over the years.

Love him or hate him, Bellamy was somebody that you just couldn’t ignore, and while he was a right wind up merchant there is no doubting what an exciting integral part he played in that Sir Bobby team.

What an exciting partnership Alan Shearer and Craig Bellamy made – the supreme goalscorer with a magnificent football brain and….Craig Bellamy!

The Welshman’s biggest asset was tremendous pace and to be fair to him he scored some fantastic goals, as well as endless unselfish running on and off the ball.

Here we start with No.151 of the eventual final tally of 289 issues of The Mag;
