Always thought he was a massive twat but he is actually an excellent pundit

Very random but thought I would let you guys know

I've only seen him on Monday Night Football (earlier this year?) and thought he was pretty good (although, it wouldn't harm for him to crack a smile once in a while).

Funnily enough, I've been seeing plenty of headlines today suggesting that Bellamy thinks Eriksen will/could/should leave.

He was on Sky Sports debate last night talking about the importance of Eriksen in the upcoming playoff between Denmark and Ireland. He said Eriksen was on the same path as Modric, but did admit that Tottenham are in a different position to when Modric left and it depends on our ambitions if he leaves or not.

I thought the same until I heard about the charity he set up in Sierra Leone. Unfortunately it had to close in the end, but he put over a million pounds of his own money into it to try and help some of the kids in the area.

He was on that Sky debate thing with Jeff Shreeves and Guillem Balague.
Came across really well and countered everything that Shreeves was coming out with, which was the usual narrative wrt us (low wages, players and manager will leave, no trophies etc.)

Imagine being Shreeves. Beneath that shiteating grin you can tell he despises himself.

Let’s not forget that he really was a detestable piece of shit back when he was playing. Physically attacking team mates with golf clubs, and mocking lower league players by bragging about how rich he was in comparison. Not a nice character, and not a wise addition to the dressing room.

Having said that, whilst I don’t forget the past, I don’t let it cloud my vision of a person’s present. Even at his worst he was refreshingly opinionated for a footballer. He’s quite suited to the role of pundit, and generally seems to talk a lot of sense.

Given half a chance, most of us would probably hit Liverpool players, their managers and especially their fans with golf clubs, right?

Actually love the bloke. Speaks so well. Be great to nick him off Cardiff and get him involved with our youth set up.

Thought he was a twat as a player (he was to be fair) but don't mind his punditry. Isn't afraid to disagree with the narrative that Sky is trying to push and say what he really thinks rather just just spout the usual rubbish.
