Had a big hand in us winning number 5. Hopefully he can get a gig coaching somewhere.

Good luck to the lad in whatever he turns his hand too....had an unlucky career with all his injuries.

Unlucky mate - best of luck in the future.

 

*I think he'd be great on 'Dancing with the stars' or 'stars on ice' - He has the hips for it!

"The Boy Bellor"

 

Gutted for him. He's one of a handful of former players whose career I keep an eye on and I always used to pump my fist in celebratory fashion every time his name popped up on the vidiprinter when he'd scored.

 

Injuries held him back his whole career and he just never got the break with them. Even in 04-05 when he was getting some games for us due to Cisse's injury and the fact that we couldn't replace Owen before the January window his opportunities were limited as his knees were causing him problems.

 

He's still got some great moments to look back on - and he has the memory of sharing a hotel room with Igor...

Didn't he have major problems when he was a youngster? I seem to remember leg breaks and all sorts?

 

Very sad for the lad, but I suppose at least he has 2005 to remember. A lot of players never get to experience games like Olympiakos.

Great strike in a magical season, a lot of the current mob could learn a lot about heart and desire from Neil Mellor.

Was in the Main stand right by the Kop with me father leaving my seat to head home and a roar went up for a challenge on Kewell and just as i looked up Mellor had put his foot through it, que the place went fucking mental.

 

Terrible bad luck for the lad. Wish him all the best

In all seriousness it is very sad news, it's a poor consolation but at least the club can provide him some security in the transition through the TV channel.
