    Beckham in Middlesbrough, a nice though but not realistic..
    5 million gbp and 100k+ per week, i would recommend we focus on spending this money on the youth. Steve McClaren left us with one of the best youth set ups in England and the quality of kids coming through is only going to get better.
    However some of this money mentioned above could be used to educate the youth in the south american and european ball skills training methods and tactics.
    The British system is full of passion with what can only be regarded as average skill levels, this is illustrated by the amount of average foreign playes in the premiership.
    You just have to look at the first British european cup winner (Celtic) and the most Successful British club in Europe (Liverpool) for there past sides and youth policys.
    Could hook up with some one like Darlington to give are fringe players, consistant 1st team exposure and confidence?
    Any way Beckham overall in my opinion would not be good for the club.
