not sure where this constant need to reinvent the past to suit the present comes from. good for a year, went a bit crap after that and we did well to get rid, shame he didn't go to the dippers.

Was a good player for us in his first season.

If anything he was a tad slow getting back and rash in challenges.

But I kinda loved him for his no holds bar style of play, case in point his trade mark 'scissor' challenge from any position, hahaha.

Was gutted when we got rid, but things have panned out alright since then.

Would have been difficult keeping Paddy and him happy though, both being starters for their respective countries.

I thought he was good at first but I think it's fair to say I wasn't arsed about him for long. I still think Bellion could have been a success at United if we had had a manager who knew his correct positions. He seems to be going OK under Laurent Blanc at Bordeaux.

Horrible distribution.

Swung that left leg like a golf club from a standstill bunting shite up the left wing.

He stood out as someone giving 100% in a team that on the whole didn't appear to be. Never a great player though. People seemed to be laud him for making last ditch tackles, but that was becuase he was caught out of position a lot.
To be fair to him though, he gave us something we needed at the time.

Agreed. We had a bit of a pussyish defence at the time, too much culture and not enough agriculture. Evra took Hienze's position but the signing who really sealed Heinze's fate was Vidic as he gave us the requisite steel by the bucket load.
