Man of the moment, Craig Bellamy could easily have been an Everton player. The Liverpool striker signed from Manchester City in the summer on a free transfer has revealed that back in 2005 he was so close to joining David Moyes at Everton.

Bellamy was speaking to the Liverpool magazine earlier in the season and he said that he flew to Liverpool to sign for Everton and meet with Moyes. But the deal did not go through because someone had been “in the manager’s ear”. Apparently a list of rules was produced by Everton which Bellamy was not happy about, thus the striker opted not to sign for Everton but rather join Blackburn.

Looking ahead to the clash against Manchester United on Saturday, Bellamy is going to be critical to the success of Liverpool. The question remains though if Bellamy will be 100% ready to go following his heroic performance against Manchester City which surely must have taken something out of the 32-year-olds tank.

Do you think Bellamy should start on Saturday or should we save him for the last 20 minutes?
