F I was Craig Bellamy, I would be fuming at the way I had been treated by Manchester City over the past few days.
And I would be contacting my lawyers to see whether a club I've given everything for are guilty of restraint of trade.
I find it unbelievable that he is now facing the prospect of having to train with Cardiff to keep himself in shape.
He is a player who gives 100 per cent whenever he pulls on the shirt - and never leaves anything on the pitch.
Bellamy was outstanding for City last season and the fans loved him.
Yet apparently he cannot get in their 25-man Premier League squad now, even though he has done nothing wrong.
He has not caused them any major problems and he has not played badly - far from it in fact. I cannot believe he has been treated so unfairly.
Since the Arab takeover happened two years ago, the people involved in running the club have changed.
The old Manchester City looked after their players properly whereas I feel Craig has been treated abominably by them.
If that's the way City want to do it then that's up to them but it will not win them many friends and I just feel the way they have handled Bellamy is really unfair.
I have heard that City have told the top clubs they cannot sign him - because they are worried it could hurt their own chances of finishing in the Champions League places.
If so, to me, that's a restraint of trade. They are stopping a person who has done nothing wrong from bettering themselves by going to a bigger club.
So they are basically telling a player who still wants to fight for his place in their team that he can't - and he can only go and play where they tell him.
Roberto Mancini has not come out of this very well, either, and I wonder whether he has what it takes to deal with the big personalities.
That is one of the things that separates the great managers from the good ones.
This game is all about players and they can make or break managers.
Players get enough stick for not showing any loyalty but it's no surprise when they get treated like this by their clubs.
Fans in Wales may love the idea of Bellamy playing for Cardiff but he's still got so much to offer to the top flight and there will be a queue of clubs wanting to sign him.
Speaking of City, I believe Arsene Wenger should be straight on the phone to them this morning to ask about signing Shay Given.
At Anfield on Sunday there was yet more evidence that my old club will not win the title until they sign a top-class goalkeeper.
You only needed to watch the game at Spurs on Saturday to see how important a keeper can be as Joe Hart almost single-handedly earned City a point. Manuel Almunia is not a bad goalie, but he's a No 2 in my eyes.
The Gunners need someone right out of the top drawer - and that man has to be Given.
I like Mark Schwarzer but Shay just has the edge. He has the experience of many years playing in front of big crowds with big expectations.
He's also a bit younger than the Fulham man and for me would help Arsenal become serious challengers for the big prize.
Whoever goes on in goal against Blackpool on Saturday, I can only see one result at the Emirates.
It's been a fairytale start for the Seasiders and I'm so pleased for Ian Holloway. But I can't see them writing another new chapter in North London.
Arsenal will be wary after losing at home to Hull a couple of years ago so they won't treat the new boys lightly.
But apart from Marlon Harewood and Charlie Adam, I haven't heard of any of the Blackpool players who have worked miracles for the club.
Yes it was a great result for them at Wigan - but that was the game I'd have chosen first up if I was Ollie.
The men from Bloomfield Road must be thinking this Premier League lark is easy but they will have a different view by Saturday tea-time.
Blackpool will be up against a team who, for me, will finish in the top four this season but maybe come up a bit short for the title. However, if Marouane Chamakh starts firing and they can sign a new goalkeeper and centre-half then I could change my view.
Chelsea have started brilliantly and Manchester United will be up there again.
But I feel the Gunners could give them a run for their money this season.
It looks like Cesc Fabregas will be at the Emirates for at least one more season but on Sunday we got a glimpse of how life will be without him.
They played some really good stuff at times and were worth at least a point.
But without Fabregas there was a tendency to keep going square rather than look for the killer pass.
