I'm coming round to the idea. I think we need some one or thing in during the window, and someone with Beckham's professionalism will work wonders to instil a bit more grit - we've started to build the winning mentality, so it's a great time for him to come and reaffirm it. He'll also be a useful person for many of them - not just the midfielders - to train with in terms of the skills and techniques (and again professionalism) they can pick up/observe/get tips on, and finally will be a great role model (for want of a better word) for the many players we have in the fringe of the England set up.
I think it could be really mutually beneficial, and I do think there's space for a cameo from him in the squad (note squad, not necessarily team), my main concern is how it would work with the squad numbers etc - would he be named in our PL squad of 25? What about the CL? Cos it seems a waste to name someone who'll only be there for a couple of months, but I can't imagine he'd just be around for the FA cup...
On a side note, that's 2 consecutive clean sheets - go us!
First of all - Happy New year to all of the posters on the board - I have high hopes for the New Year and what we can accomplish.
Second - I agree with NBR re: Beckham. I also think that he is perhaps worth inclusion in the CL squad. We know that many of the games - especially away - may end up with penalties, or may swing on a set play - and while there's no doubt Becks is slow (he was never that quick), he is still one of the best strikers of the dead ball - and it would free VdV up to be in the box where he is just as dangerous as he is when he is striking the set pieces.
And I'd still like to see a top striker and a LB!
Hope the upcoming year is good for all of ya!
