    Those who didnt like the Cole news should probably look away now.

    The Beckham circus is coming to town. Boys enrolled in same Herts school as their cousins today.

    Nothing like investing in youth ;)

    Thats all for now.

    Well, as much as he is would not be the long term future of the club, I would rather have Beckham than Cole, doubt he would expect to play whole games and has things to offer that the team lacks at the moment (experience, dead ball skills).

    Lots of shirt sales, that's for sure. And he still can strike a dead ball with accuracy few can rival.
    Plus, I think he knows he wouldn't be first-choice but it would be great to have him here. Much better signing than Joe Cole.

    Beckham would be a fantastic impact sub to have. I know you were kidding about the investing in youth line, but actually this could do our youth players a world of good working with someone like Beckham.

    Plus, he'd bring quite a bit of extra cash the clubs way. Like said earlier, would raise the profile of the club worldwide.

    I'd be fine with Beckham coming in, but again, its all meaningless unless we sign that quality striker we clearly need.

    joe cole in his best is 100x footballer of david beckham. beckham only freekicks and cross, no movement, no dribble, no great talent. joe cole if he can return to the best level is one of england best players of the last decade. at least he has maybe a few years left beckham will only become terrible

    Signing Beckham is worth the money solely for the work he will put in with Lennon and to a lesser extent Walker. Joe Cole is nothing but a money hungry over-the-hiller who provides nothing we don't already have in the midfield while taking a massive chunk of wages. At least Beckham could be an impact sub towards the end of a match for a free kick or a corner. Further, Beckham is a worldwide brand that could help us in all markets.

    this time last season I would have said Joe Cole all day long, but after he snubbed us for more money at liverpool I don't want that money grabbing d*ck anywhere near our club...

    Beckham in other hand (although moved to LA for money, thats what i think anyway) brings so much to our team... would be a fantastic 20-25min impact sub or to play in the Europa League...

    but he wouldn't generate that much income with shirt sales etc... as we will be paying him £60k a week i would have thought so thats a lot of shirts to sell in a week!

    Watched Becks against Madrid the other day. He still delivers the ball with pinpoint accuracy. Remains the best in the world at cross field passes and long balls IMO. Would be very happy to bring him on board.

    Sorry for stupid question, but why would Becham go to us, if we offer so little wages compared to his earlier earnings ?

    because its back in England (quality of football is better compared to the MLS) his kids can go to school in England... maybe a chance he may get back into the England squad... a whole list of things that would make him want to play back in the premiership.

    He's the highest paid footballer in the world all things considered (Sponsorships). He knows he's never going to get a deal like he did from the Galaxy, so why not. He's still marketable enough to be making 50K and still be one of the better paid footballers in the World.

    I've always said that if Ryan Giggs can still be of use to Manchester United then why can't Beckham be of use to us. And we might even get first dibs on his two sons if they start showing any potential.

    I'd take Becks any day of the week. I think he can still have an impact on the field, but more importantly I think he'd have a massive impact in the dressing room and could teach our youngsters a lot. He's a great professional, a massive brand name and a pretty good coach as well. I'd be first in the queue for a Beckham shirt if he came to us.

    [MENTION=8017]TheSpurEST[/MENTION] A chance for him to finish his career where he started it?

    At his age you'd think it's all about getting game time, not the biggest pay packet.

    Are you comparing a 37 year old to one still in his 20s? If you have watched a game of Becks back in the day, circa 95-'05 you'd see he was one of the most energetic players on the field, the most energetic in many games I've seen. I watched an 03 Euro qualifier against Turkey recently, and my god he was a ****ing engine, never stopped running, always tracked back. He put his heart and soul when he was on the pitch.

    Becks is one of the very best midfielders England has ever produced, and England has produced a butt load of great footballers, obvious ones I'm not going to name. He's also considered to be one of, if not, the best dead ball specialist ever, and one of the best midfielders of his generation. Even at this age I'll take him as a player over Cole anyday, let alone the great impact he would have as a future coach. And he has all the qualities to make a great coach one day.

    You're telling me Joe Cole is better than this legend? Joe Cole is about as useful as Jermaine Jenas. Didn't mean to thank your post lol.

    Im sure i read Beckham was a spurs supporter aswell, and was judged not good enough by our academy when he was s youngster. Anyone know if this is true? i remember where i read those.

    For sure he would be good for the team as such, nobody had ever heard of 'major league soccer' before he went there so perhaps it could improve our reputation a bit (especially after reminding the world we are still here last year in the champs league) and lure better players.

    I have to say if its true that hes coming to us, its a bit bewildering. Lets face it we have a silly amount of midfielders anyway. Not to mention so many bench warmers in the squad that we need to 'offload before we can fill our problem areas'. Why would we sign a 75k/week (this is our player weekly pay max right? so im assuming he will want that amount) to come on for the last 15 mins during games? since we allready have a plethora of players which can do that right now.

    I was also under the impression Becks as a youngster was a Spurs supporter.

    He would be an asset to us for lots of reasons, primarily his following which could definately increase our supporter base.

    He is still a decent footballer who would be an excellent sub and would definately be of assistance passing on his skill factor to younger players.

    I don't think his primary concern would be the salary any more, he is a nice guy, good work ethic, great ambassador, what more could we expect of him. A few good crosses and maybe when we have a couple of decent strikers he will have many assists.

    Sounds good to me!
