Craig Bellamy made his Liverpool debut on Saturday against Stoke as he came off the bench in the second half. Liverpool were searching for an equaliser and Dalglish decided to throw on Carroll and Bellamy in place of Kuyt and Henderson and the new entrants seemed to make an instant impact.

Bellamy was deployed wide on the right as Downing was on the left. Bellamy look good on the right as he gave Stoke some problems. The beauty of having a player like Bellamy in the side is that you know you are going to get 100% commitment and he has the skill and pace to be a threat to any opposition.

We may not have gotten the equaliser after the entry of Bellamy onto the field but the signs looked good for Bellamy for the rest of the season. I have already been hearing some fans saying Bellamy should start upfront alongside Suarez or he should take over Henderson’s place in the side. It is a good headache for Dalglish to have as he now has some quality options. Bringing on Bellamy, Carroll and Glen Johnson off the bench is something to be proud of. In seasons gone by, we have very little quality on our bench.

What role do you see Bellamy playing for Liverpool this season?
