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.

    • Must have got some stick, it's been deleted now! But they're the senior club, dont you know?
    • Haha,woodison struggling to make the necessary requirements to stage games when the league resumes!   A number of Premier League clubs face a race against time to ensure their stadiums comply with new biosecure regulations being considered by top-flight officials. Ahead of football's planned return on June 17, clubs will be presented with a framework for their grounds in an attempt to minimise the spread of Covid-19 among those inside. Insiders say the proposals — yet to be presented — may cause substantial logistical issues for those with older or more compact homes.  Grounds such as Goodison Park, Turf Moor, Vicarage Road and Selhurst Park could struggle to comply with the regulations and may need extensive work to ensure they meet the criteria. The need for social distancing and ensuring areas are sterile will be at the forefront of the guidelines. And at certain grounds, teams may be asked to enter the field of play separately to minimise risk.  And while there is a confidence that those affected will be able to make the necessary amendments, the issue presents another barrier to overcome before matches can be held at their original venues. The Premier League declined to comment. But it is understood that following on from the early apparent success of new measures surrounding training grounds, similar protocols will be introduced in stadiums.  On Saturday, the top flight reported their latest test figures with zero positives. And they are understandably keen to try to minimise risk at stadiums. 'It's a set of measures that will form a biosecurity criteria,' a source explained. 'It is still being worked on but a lot of it will be similar to what has happened at the training grounds. 'That said, some of those with older and tighter stadiums may have their work cut out. 'The last thing the Premier League want is for football to return and for the grounds not to be as secure as the training grounds — and that is what this is all about. 'It may end up costing clubs quite a bit of money to ensure they comply, but it will happen.' A key area surrounds the layout of dressing rooms, and clubs with older stadiums will face a complex challenge. Players are being told to shower when returning home from training. A solution to how this will work after games will have to be found.   https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/sportsnews/article-8374677/Race-against-time-Premier-League-clubs-grounds-ready-return-action.html  
    • Wouldn't be sure on that.  I don't want it to happen because I don't want the joy it will bring to the knuckle dragging clowns that travel with the team. The irony of them cheering on a team of black players while chanting the normal vile shite they do will be ironic at best. But this young team they have now is very good. Always need a bit of luck but the attacking talent is there and with the right approach could easily win something. I think the Euros going back a year will help them as both Rashford and Kane would have been not 100% this summer
    • Waddle always been a fucking hypocritical twat. Harps on about Brexit often enough. Pretty rich from a man that was happy to use his rights to travel and work to earn more playing for the match fixers in Marseille but like many of them fuckers he's made his money out of it
    • Frank Lampard got slagged for being far slimmer than the average British male. This guy would be the beer bellied one in the group of six lads in Corfu who quietly nips out of the club and hits the kebab shops to score some grub when the rest of the lads are chatting up the hairdressers from Brummie. Fuck chatting up birds when you can smash some kebabs and garlic chips eh Lukey lad.
