    I really rated him. A bit Lallana like actually, great feet and played well between the lines.

    Scored one absolute cracker at SMS running from the halfway line.

    I thought this was going to say talented Algerian tchnician OR dissident kidnapping terrorist - and put up a picture of him with a beard and storming a BP gas refinery in the Algerian desert.......


    Anyway I seem to remember enjoying his brief cameo during that season.....

    The goal he scored against Crewe was great - I thought he was going to tear up the league.

    Quality player. Often some distance above the rest of the team technically, I was glad we had him

    One of those who spent more time with a sick note than on the field

    Yeah, and both seasons he was with us his sick note coincided with the winter.

    On the subject of ears, wasn't it when he was on trial that the earlobe identification system started?

    Maybe but I thought Rory Delap objected to that.

    I liked him, even though Redknapp signed him. It was a shame he didn't play as often as he could have, otherwise the often well-refreshed Burley might have taken us up.

    Loving these threads. Belmadi was the footballing version of Penfold off Dangermouse

    For anyone following the African Cup of Nations might have noticed that Belmadi's just managed to get Algeria into the semi-finals.

    An interesting managerial career, could he ever be a future Saints manager? Would ideally need a successful spell managing in Europe first.

    Always had a soft spot for him because he scored the first ever Saints goal that I saw live...On my 13th Birthday, a 2-0 win over Crewe. Quashie got the other one from the penalty mark.

    I saw this game live & thought we'd be brilliant that season... Never quite happened.

    He was tremendous that game.

    He was an amazing layer but far to good for the players around him, he was always doing amazing passes and back heels but none of our team were quick minded enough to read it so looks stupid a lot of the time!

    We could do with some of his creativity and intelligent passing now. Lovely player to watch

    I could be wrong, but did he score twice in a 2-0 home win against someone?? I remember being at the game but was a bit worse for wear...

    Krueger has gone now, we're allowed to call it penalty SPOT these days

    Belmadi wins the Africa Cup of Nations with Algeria, beating Mane’s Senegal.

    And good luck to the people from Paris and other major French cities.
