Bellamy. He did wonders for Shearer's late career although I don't think he'd ever acknowledge it.

He did a few times IIRC.

Since Bellamy left?

Not that I can remember, but you didn't specify that. At the time I remember him saying on quite a few occasions that Bellamy had effectively extended his career etc.

Would have to be his best friend Mr Bellamy, or possibly Daniel Cordone

Bellamy was the better partner imo because Shearer needed his pace to do his running, and Bellamy needed Shearer to feed off. Ferdinand was more a case of two top class centre-forwards scoring chances created for them by the likes of Gillespie, Ginola, Beardsley, etc. etc rather than a partnership and how they linked up.

They both needed each other at the time, imo. Remember when Bellamy came here he wasn't exactly playing the best football of his career, either.

I'd say ferdinand, just.

How old was he when he came here to be not playing the best football of his career? :lol:

he'd been brilliant at Norwich in his teens and then spent a large proportion of his short time at Coventry out on the wing.

Bellamy as the complimented each other better than Ferdinand and Shearer did.

the guy was s*** for coventry, and when we splashed out 6m on him most of us weren't happy. You're blind as a bat if you didn't see that playing alongside Shearer helped him as much as he helped AS.

BTW, he's playing on the wing now and he's not doing too badly. :rolleyes:

It's a myth that Bellamy helped shearer's career without getting anything back. And you are falling for it.

It's bizarre how much barrel-scraping comes immediately after Ferdinand and Bellamy. Maybe if we'd had three quality strikers in the Bobby era, we might even have had a better shot at the title (or 4th place in 03/04's case). I mean, you are looking at the likes of Shola and Kevin Gallacher (after the obvious two) as the next 'best partners'.

EDIT: Ferguson, come to think of it. Criminal how many injuries he had. That could have been quite the partnership.

Bellamy, it was actually our trade-mark to have Given hoof the ball upfront, Shearer flicks and Bellamy is one on one infront of the goal, other teams had no answer to it, i think Sir Les comes in after him.

Special mention for Duncan too. Didn't last very long, but I enjoyed the "Twin Towers" a lot.

For me it has to be Les. I think it's very harsh to say they were just two quality strikers rather than partners, they were very willing to always help each other out right from the start.

Bellamy was exactly what Shearer needed at that time (which underlines Sir Bobby's genius really) but overall has to be Ferdinand.

Ferdinand, then Bellamy.  As has been said, Les was probably less of a partnership than just two goal machines, but still.  Bellamy probably revitalised Shearer.

He was pretty poor at Coventry, a lot were surprised we signed him after that spell.  He was appalling at St James.

Nah. Sutton was class, but Shearer was in machine mode with Blackburn. Les was a similar type of player to Sutton but a better version.

Depressing reading indeed.
How far are we from seeing another Shearer/Ferdinand - Shearer/Bellamy strikeforce :(

Brilliant days watching both of those combinations. Very difficult to choose between them.

What you're on about now? That their partnership didn’t help them equally?  If so, your first post implied it.
