Becks or some young blood?

There have been noises over the last few days about David Beckham becoming a Spurs player. I’d be surprised if the club managed to pull this off but after the money we got for Zokora, anything is possible!

Personally, I’d see this as a great move and massive step forward for Tottenham. David Beckham can still play to a decent standard, his marketing value is second to none and just his presence at the club would likely give everyone a massive boost.

The only sticking point as far as I’m concerned would be his huge wage demands. Obviously, this would be recouped in ticket and merchandise sales but it could have a knock on effect as far as other signings this summer are concerned.

If he brings Becks in, would Harry Redknapp have the funds available to go out and buy an Ashley Young for example? Would he even want another midfielder in his squad for that matter?

The problem is that Beckham is unlikely to play week in, week out. He’d be used sporadically and probably only for a season at that. For all his good points, would Becks contribute enough to justify us missing out on a top class young midfield player?

There are obviously a lot of ifs and buts here, but if it came down to it, would you prefer David Beckham at Tottenham or an Ashley Young or similar?

  2. Silly question really one is for a season at very best, the other is younger and long term, well as long term as as as you can expect from money grabbing players.

  3. davspurs, I read and re-read your comments a couple of times just now, and to be honest, I am not sure I understand a word you are talking about. Notwithstanding punctuation, spelling, and grammer, I am not sure of what you are talking about can you clarify it slightly simpler please, that would be really helpful.

  4. To be honest, I like the idea of Beckham at Tottenham solely for the economic & PR benefit it would have. However, I do not believe that Becks would come to Spurs. This is just a rumor that has been getting great press coverage; again proving the fact that Becks brings in PR!

    As for Young, I think I would be more interested in having him in the squad because he likes to play off the left wing and we could utilize someone like that. I would be disappointed though that we didn’t pick him up from the beginning of his career (when we had the chance) for the minimal amount we were offered. GO FIGURE!


  5. I’d like to echo Denboy in that, reading davspurs post, I’m just dizzy trying to make it out. Clarify please….

    Becks? Nice if it were to happen, for the PR…but it’s not.
