Ed001 been reading through the posts and I’m sorry to hear about your mate. Never an easy time- hope you’re doing as well as can be.

I read something the other day regarding bullying allegations against Beardsley which surprised me. I was wondering how was he thought of around the club when he was here and what your opinion of him was? Didn’t have him pegged as a bully to be honest.



{Ed001's Note - thank you for the thoughts.

As for Peebo, I was absolutely shocked as he was widely regarded as a genuinely nice guy. The same at Everton, he was thought of as a nice guy and very well liked. I can't get my head around the idea of him bullying someone, so I really hope it is not true.}

1.) 09 Jan 2018 12:37:43
That’s what I can’t get my head around! But this article says he was accused before during his first coaching stint with Newcastle. Seems really out of character.

Cheers for the reply.

{Ed001's Note - from my experience of him, and what other people who know him have said, it does seem very out of character.}

2.) 09 Jan 2018 14:54:28
I had previously heard he had a nasty side to him from fans who had interacted with him.
Nothing on this scale though.

{Ed001's Note - I would be interested to hear more about that Ron. I have never heard any view of him from a fans perspective in that respect mate. Lots from fans watching him play, but not from fans who have actually met him. Would love to know if he is different, as it is perfectly possible he acts one way with people he sees as his peers and another with those he could potentially see as beneath his level. I was thinking it shouldn't have come as a surprise really as we all know how cruel some of the jibes he suffered were during his career about him being Quasimodo etc and it is usually the bullied that become bullies themselves.}

3.) 09 Jan 2018 17:35:58
I have met and been in the company of Peter on quite a few occasions and he is one of the nicest people you could come across I also have a very close friend who Was in his company nearly every day and he nothing but nice things to say about him. then lengths he's go to, to help people out etc. so I'm completely surprised and shocked by what's come out. I'll be honest people are to soft nowadays and all the PC crap makes it impossible at times, but that being said I don't know what's gone on.

4.) 09 Jan 2018 18:26:16
Cheers for the info chaps. It’s a bit of an odd one ain’t it.

5.) 10 Jan 2018 00:47:13
Not that it means much but i met him once and he was a very nice bloke. He was more than willing to chat and came across as having minimal ego. Disappointing if true.



26 Sep 2017 18:42:39
Evening Eds hope you're all well. Seen a bit of chat regarding coaches here today and was wondering how was old Colin Pascoe thought of within the club? I mean obviously someone didn't rate him because he was sacked! But by the players and rest of the management?

I know it's a bit of a random one but we're from the same area and was curious to know.

Many thanks.


{Ed001's Note - I am sorry I don't remember to be honest.}

1.) 26 Sep 2017 18:55:39
He put the cones out for team.
He wears shorts when it is f**king freezin
But we don't care cause his legs are a dream.
Oh his name is Colin Pascoe.
Loved that chant.

2.) 26 Sep 2017 18:55:42
Haha no worries Ed he always grabbed me as the forgettable sort. Just always nice to know how a fellow Taff does. Thanks anyway.

{Ed001's Note - I always get him mixed up with Hodgson's backroom staff for some unknown reason.}

3.) 26 Sep 2017 19:18:47
I don't think I could name one of Hodgsons backroom staff now to be honest.



20 Nov 2016 15:27:35
Hi Eds ...


{Ed002's Note - This has been addressed before and you can search - but things have changed in recent years and it is far better than it was. And this is the Liverpool page, perhaps the European page would be better.}

1.) 20 Nov 2016 16:06:34
I'll take a look over there- thanks for your time ed.

{Ed002's Note - If not repost it there.}



24 Sep 2016 18:01:06
Hi Ed001 hope you're well if you don't mind I was wondering what was your opinions on Bellamy while he was with us? As a player and how he was thought of around the club. Read an interesting piece about him an got me a thinking. Cheers!


{Ed001's Note - depends on which time around you mean?

First time around, good player but a dick off the pitch, drank too much, caused a bit of hassle, such as the golf club incident with Riise, etc. Because of that, he was not able to deliver on a consistent basis as he was too caught up in off field stuff.

Second time round, he had changed his life due to a trip to Africa and he was a totally different person. He was always a grafter, but he was almost obsessive in his second spell. Behaved himself off the pitch and was generally a good person to have around the club. His performances were much better as well.

Bellamy is the prime example of how the old saying about leopards not changing their spots is wrong. He had a truly life changing experience in Africa and his life was no longer about getting drunk and fighting everyone. Now he had a purpose and desire to make the most of every second he had left in his career.}

1.) 24 Sep 2016 18:25:42
It is always a great thing to see some find redemption in any walk of life. Credit to Bellamy for the way he has found redemption in his life.

2.) 24 Sep 2016 18:27:00
Just goes to show, sometimes going barefoot can make you appreciate your older brothers scabby old 4 striped adidas (in bright green) . well done anyone who can turn their lives around.

3.) 24 Sep 2016 18:33:52
Yeah that was pretty much the theme of the article. Apparently after that trip he did a shed load for charity- the poverty he saw seemed to really move him. Not sure if I remember it correctly but I think I caught he was donating all his wages to charity during his second spell at Cardiff.

Thanks for the reply Ed cracking win today too!

{Ed001's Note - it was half his wages he was donating, he set up a foundation to help out there and devotes huge amounts of time to helping. Every summer he goes out to Africa to work with children. I have nothing but respect for all he has done since he saw what had happened out there.}

4.) 24 Sep 2016 18:45:57
Hi ed001,

What happened on that trip to change Bellamy so much? He was always one of my favourite players for some reason, always loved seeing him play.


{Ed001's Note - it was a war torn region, I think Rwanda off the top of my head, but I can't remember.}

5.) 24 Sep 2016 18:46:40
Edd001 I'm guessing bellamy visited a certain part far from the glam?

{Ed001's Note - yes mate. The country he visited had been involved in a civil war and he was asked by a friend of his to visit as part of a scheme to bring the country back together through football. They put former enemies on teams together etc. It has made a huge difference to people's lives there.}

6.) 24 Sep 2016 19:21:04
I think as a player he could have achieved aa lot more .

Blistering pace.

Always seemed very opinionated off the pitch and it affected his game quite a bit.

7.) 24 Sep 2016 19:24:38
Good on him. Wouldn't we all do the same if we had the money? Not all people do tho, so fair play to him. ❤️.

8.) 24 Sep 2016 19:42:20
I think anyone who can, should make those type of trips, it completely changes your perspective on life. You hear all this rubbish from the media when it's a totally different story when you experience it for yourself. Not just Africa, but other regions in the world. A lot of ignorance would be wiped away if such trips where made by more people.

9.) 24 Sep 2016 21:45:08
Sierra Leone.

10.) 24 Sep 2016 22:18:26
Good to know Ed and nice to hear. Can't fault the man fair play.

{Ed001's Note - WBD is right, it was Sierra Leone.}



09 Aug 2015 10:14:12
Ed001 sorry if this has been asked before but couldn't find anything. I'm watching some YouTube clips of Torres back in the day (like creeping on an ex on Facebook I know). Was wondering if you could shed any light with how is form just dropped so remarkably? Was it just confidence? I always suspected he suffered with depression his whole demeanour seemed to just change and looked like he gave up. Sorry if it's been done to death. Cheers


{Ed001's Note - there were a lot of issues. Injuries robbed him of his acceleration though, which was the main factor. Without that he was unable to create the time and space he once had, which made the lack of confidence a bigger factor.}

1.) 09 Aug 2015 10:34:45
Amazing that we managed to get so much money for him really because, as the OP says, it was quite obvious from his demeanour when he played. Poor scouting from Chelsea there I'd say.

2.) 09 Aug 2015 10:42:41
Keeping side his injuries, Torres had that charisma to bring the fans to him and to the game. His goals, celebrations and he himself became a face of the club.
There ain't any better sight than Torres scoring goal in front of the home supporters, trust me only Suarez and Gerrard matched it.
That pushed roman to pump 50 mill on him.

{Ed001's Note - that and the face like a smacked arse was put down to him having a fall out with Carragher and Gerrard, as they didn't see eye to eye. Torres did not like getting involved in lad's nights out, in the form of team bonding, as he preferred to stay at home with his family.}

3.) 09 Aug 2015 10:55:33
Ed01, you kidding me, did he fell out with Gerrard? Omg. Now that's news to me.

{Ed001's Note - they disagreed over team bonding. Players fall out with each other all the time, it is very rare it is anything major, even then players can play together without needing to like each other.}

4.) 09 Aug 2015 10:57:33
He went crap when he didn't have stevie behind him

5.) 09 Aug 2015 11:30:59
He still says stevie was the best ever

{Ed001's Note - exactly, it was a nothing falling out, just a bit of a squabble. It certainly didn't help at the time, but it was not the reason for his catastrophic loss of ability.}

6.) 09 Aug 2015 12:42:03
Thanks for the reply Ed. Hadn't realised he and Gerrard didn't exactly get on. You'd never think it they linked up brilliantly. Just find it fascinating how a players form can just drop so dramatically. Still got a soft spot for the lad tho!

{Ed001's Note - I am not sure it was as bad as they didn't get on, they just didn't agree on some things.}

7.) 09 Aug 2015 13:04:28
Tbf, if Torres didn't want to go out and drink, but instead get an early night and stay with his family, that's shouldn't have been an issue

8.) 09 Aug 2015 13:23:27
It shouldn't be, Fencey but strangely enuff, it was. It was nothing to me in the end. His ability was shot due to injuries and a complete loss of desire to become the best afterwards., IMO.

9.) 09 Aug 2015 13:40:39
It didn't help Chelsea didn't play the type of football Torres thrived from whilst also having Drogba there.Watching it at times it was infuriating. He'd run front post for a header (his bread and butter at liverpool)and they'd cross it backpost,as droga tended to pull away back wards off his man they'd play it square onto him like they would didier when he clearly wanted it between the lines to run onto. I really don't think having Drogba there at the same time helped him in any way transition to the club.

He lost his acceleration, that was clear to all to see,but for me he still had a fair bit to offer,Chelsea wasted him and his style of football

Remember a few seasons ago I think the bookies even suspended betting on Ribery joining us. Means nothing.

{Ed002's Note - I have no way to "rate" players I am afraid.}

Adriano. Granted there were other problems but I think it was a bad injury which started it. The man seemed like a beast tho.

Do you really date him that highly ed? Asking for an optimistic taffy.


{Ed001's Note - he is a fantastic talent. It was only injury that lost him his place in the Chelsea side last season.}

Love to come and read the Neymar comments here chaps. I feel like I'm the only person who thinks he's an overrated show pony until I come here! Cannot stick him! Out of curiosity ed what position does his father have in football?


{Ed001's Note - hard to follow as he just seems to have levered a good bit of power purely because he was his son's agent and happens to be an excellent negotiator.}
