THIS THREAD IS NOW "READ ONLY" AS BECKHAM HAS OFFICIALLY CONFIRMED HE IS MOVING TO LA GALAXY
What with all the media speculation surrounding David Beckham over the last 48 hours and us being linked with him I just thought it'd be interesting to see what opinion us supporters have on the subject.......
Sure, he is approaching the twilight of his career but personally I think he has another two seasons of top level football in him having hardly been used this season by Real.
We all know what he is capable of but would we see his addition to our ranks as a footballing plus or more of a commercial addition?
To an extent it would be following in line with our recent "senior pro" additions (Davids, Naybet) and would most definately benefit the players, a leader on the pitch, albeit not vocally, he does command the respect of his fellow team mates, however, would it upset certain individuals who would be vying for a start with him? Would he be happy to only start 20-25 games a season?
What about the salary expectations, he is reported to be on about £85k a week which would smash our pay scale, however, the initial arguement between him an Real seems to have started with Real only giving him 50% of his image rights. Maybe there could be negotiation in this figure to off-set a smaller basic salary?
Being Spurs we are always in the news on a daily basis being linked with absolutely everyone through the media, one story that has cropped up on numerous occasions is that of David's returning "home", could people see that happening and if so would they be happy for Beckham to take up the Davids void?
