Will Spurs go back for Beckham?
With his contract due to expire in November, talk in bound to increase that Spurs will again try to sign David Beckham, over the coming weeks.
Dismiss this at your peril, because I have a strong feeling this could happen and will do so with the combined blessing of both Redknapp and Levy who will both see sense in bringing back Becks, even at the ripe old age of 36.
It would appear that QPR will be looking to sign the player, for much the same reasons as Spurs and perhaps several others, but you get the feeling that short of a last ditch offer from Old Trafford, the Beckham`s would prefer London to anywhere else and lets be honest, money isn`t likely to be the issue that swings the deal is it.
Many will claim (perhaps rightly) that Becks is too old and won`t get a game with Spurs, but if he was available today, would you see Harry starting him on the right with Aaron Lennon injured? Should we be considering altering our formation, Beckham has looked very impressive in the deep lying play-maker role as he has become less able to play wide, so could he be an option there?
Others will of course talk of his comments that he won`t return to England, because of his great love for Man United, but if an offer were attractive enough at this time, and he looked keen enough to join us a few months ago...
Sure Beckham may not appear as a shoe-in for our best XI, but Harry and the players will surely be better judges of his ability to compete and perform after his time training with the team, so perhaps we should let them judge his ability, whilst no doubt Daniel Levy is drooling at the prospect of selling BECKHAM 5(?) on the back of a few shirts.
As a free agent, Beckham will be free to sign for any club he wishes, and it wouldn`t seem too difficult for Spurs to move on Ben Alnwick to conveniently make room for a former England captain, especially one that adds experience, glamour and a few zillion shirt sales to boot...
