David Beckham To Villa - Rumour!

David Beckham To Villa - Rumour!

There is a report in the Daily Star by David Woods today saying that Premier League teams are watching as David Beckham has failed to agree terms for a return to AC Milan. The 34-year-old is desperate for top flight football in order to make sure he makes the World Cup next summer and is looking for another loan deal away from LA Galaxy.

Spurs have been linked and the report also suggests a possible interest from Chelsea now former Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti is there.

So why am I on about it?

Well, as you know, unlike other places with their 'exclusives' which lets face it, never come off and just make the headlines to get more hits (!) I don't often sensationalise BUT - and this is pretty much mostly only for fun - we did have a new member in our forum who yesterday posted:

AmericanVillain:

Randy Lerner has been seen in a LA restaurant with Philip Anschutz and David Beckhams Agent over a possible one-year deal to allow David Beckham to play in England for the season preceding the World Cup

So there you go, conclusive proof, Beckham is not on the ... sorry is on the way to Villa...!

What would you think, this is a fairly quiet debate time, so lets explore. Good move or not? Our latest poll asks that very question... coincidence? I think not! :o)

bit of a silly one but thought as it was a quiet time it might make a talking point if nothing else!

Although it was against weak opposition, I remember thinking that Beckham looked much better in that position than Barry has recently. He seemed to be far more commanding and productive, as he was pinging the ball to Young with great with such accuracy. Maybe that's is where his future roll for England is. Give the choice of Beckham or Barry at Villa right now, Beckham would be it for me.

I started a thread about the possibility of this about 2 months ago. At first it sounds like a joke, but when you think about it, it makes sense for both the club and Beckham. For David 1. He gets himself firmly under Capellos nose every week in a WC year 2. He is garenteed regular footy at Villa 3. He gets Europa League footy, not CL, but thats all he got a AC Milan too! For Villa 1. It gets us well and truly on the world stage 2. He pays his own wages these days, so money is no object, sells enough shirts for our part of money 3. Imagine a fit Owen, which is a large possibility on the end of his world class through balls 4. Brings experience into the team, which is needed with Barry and Lausens exit I think this is not as stupid as it sounds, even if its just for a couple of seasons, it could be brilliant! Everyone for whom he plays is still praise worthy of his professionalism, effort and contribution, both personally and to younger ones in the team!

He has better vision and speed that Barry, so I would say, give him a go, what we got to lose? He would be superb marketing for the Villa too. and give us a bit of a spark in midfield where we need it.
