West Ham United 3 Fulham 1

Craig Bellamy’s Absence Put On West Ham's Back Burner by Nick Szczepanik
"Who needs Craig Bellamy?" was the question sung with gusto by the Upton Park crowd as West Ham United hit three goals against a defence that, until yesterday, had been one of the most miserly on its travels in the Barclays Premier League... Times
West Ham Beat Fulham Without Want-Away Craig Bellamy by John Ley
"Who needs Craig Bellamy?" sang a united Upton Park and, on this evidence, the question is a fair one.

Cole Fire Roars Hammers On by Matt Barlow
Never mind East End hospitality, the next time Craig Bellamy appears at Upton Park he will be showered with the sort of vitriol normally reserved for Paul Ince, Frank Lampard and Jermain Defoe.

Di Michele And Cole Flourish In Bellamy's Place by Andrew Warshaw
Who needs Craig Bellamy?

Hammers Receive Timely Boost by Paul Doyle
"Who needs Craig Bellamy?" crooned the West Ham United crowd throughout this comfortable win. Amid the controversy of the Welshman's refusal to attend training as he lobbies for a move to another club, and the ongoing rumbles of financial crisis at Upton Park, Gianfranco Zola's team extended their unbeaten run to five matches and crept up to eighth place in the league. For the Italian, it was the perfect end to what he afterwards described as the most difficult week since his appointment as manager... Guardian
