Beckham To Newcastle – It Must Be Sunday!


There are a few reports out today – it’s Sunday so beware – that Newcastle will try to bring David Beckham on loan to Tyneside.

David Beckham – on his way to Tottenham – not Tyneside


Can you ever see Victoria shopping on Northumberland Street or in the Newcastle indoor malls?

We think not.

New manager Alan Pardew is scheduled to meet with the Newcastle hierarchy in the next couple of days to discuss transfer targets.

And David’s name  may be brought up – but only to comment that a loan fee of £1.5M for three months is completely ridiculous – but presumably that’s what Spurs are willing to play for David.

The 35 year-old world star is almost certain to start a three month loan spell to Tottenham within a week, and be available for the club’s home tie with Manchester United on January 16th.

That’s the same day Newcastle will do the double over Sunderland at the Stadium of Light – as it just so happens.

Gone are the days when Newcastle make trophy signings and pay huge wages to players, who are just not worth it.

And how many times have Newcastle done that, and how many millions did the club pour down the drain with that stupid policy?

The answer is a lot.

We remember back in the summer of 2004, when Newcastle’s defense was in need of new players, but if didn’t stop Freddy Shepherd from trying to sign Wayne Rooney for £25M.

And Newcastle almost did the deal, before Manchester United came in and saved Rooney and Newcastle too – if truth be told.

Shepherd never said anything to the then manager Bobby Robson about trying to sign Rooney, and then of  course a few weeks later in late August of that year, another famous Freddy Shepherd decision – he sacked Bobby Robson, and it’s been downhill ever since for the club.

This is what Pardew said today:

“David Beckham is an asset to a team on a number of levels,”

“But for a manager it’s the playing level and the fact he can deliver a ball. He has the experience and guile to play for this team, 100 per cent.”

“But there has been no talk about David Beckham.” “Perhaps I should ring him and see what he’s up to, see if he is coming home.”

Newcastle have taken another tact in the transfer market since Freddy Shepherd left the club – and it’s an interesting one.

Newcastle will now sign a player, only if he will make the squad stronger, and  available at a reasonable fee.

What a strange concept – and how boring. 😀

Comments welcome.

    Beckham would definately bring something to the team. He’s still one of the best passers of the ball. He’s slow but Barton’s not very quick and I think we all agree when I say he’s been atleast okay.
    He might not be the type of player we are the most in need now but saying he wouldn’t bring anything to the team is probably wrong.

    Northumberland Street has the second highest rate behind only Oxford Street plus Eldon Square and the Metro Centre are very cosmopolitan indeed! Can’t see Posh down the Bigg Market in the Pig ‘n’ Whistle though!! 😉

    Beckham’s crossing ability would certainly be an asset. Could he do much more of a job that Barton is currently doing though? I’d rather go for Bentley and give him a chance (cut price of course) to get his career back on track.

    Happy New Year to everyone as well by the way! 🙂

    I heard from a Sunday Sun journalist, that he knows the man who washes the glasses in a the pub where Beckham’s Agent’s gardener’s best friend drinks, that he’s heard that Beckham is a mate of Pardew, since they once met in a chip shop in Preston, and that Victoria has told her maid, whose auntie’s cousin in Wideopen, that Brooklyn is addicted to pasties from Greggs.
    So it must be true . . .

    would be a good move as even if his loan fee is 1.5 million he would get us worldwide recognition just because he is david beckham one of the most famous people in the world.
    we could probably make more than that just off selling beckham shirts to yanks and asians.
    there is no doubt he is a world class player and he has never had pace, the only thing i would be worried about would be his injury that he had not long ago.

    Rather have Victoria.
    Theory is Ash has to be seen to back Pards. Cos it`s obvious now he didn`t trust Hoots.
    Offload a couple of wasters even just to get them off the wage bill.
    £15 mill spent now on proven players Bentley/ Keane/ Wheater with Gos/Benny coming back virtual guaranteed safety, and not losing circa £100 mill again off the club`s value if we get relagated.
    Only good thing about Pards appointment, he`ll be given some funds.

    typical lazy journalism, making stories out of quotes theyve engineered answers to themselves.

    pardew was talking about how he was looking at anyone who’s available, the journo then chips in with “does that include beckham?” to which pardew jokingly said he’d have to give him a call.

    total non-story from the Star, just goes to show they’ll publish any old shite.

    £1.5m for three months loan for a 35 year old who’s more interested in hair fashion, tatoos and getting his photograph taken – yeah right!
    The silly season is upon us and this is only the start.
    A quality creative midfielder and mobile (young) striker is what we need – and urgently. Without those it’s going to be a long hard winter.

    dannufc did you not like shearer or zidane, surely you remember those two greats. shearer for obvious reasons but zidane was the b0110cks, much better than becks imo. maybe some of the older people might think back to milburn or pele but zidane and shearer were my favourites in my lifetime as maradona was an overweight coke head when i was a youngster.

    had spome good memories of watching gazza for lazio, rangers,england etc… but too young to see him for the toon.

    So what if Pardews interested, why would beckham choose us over spurs when they’re playing champions league football?

    Its all about beckham staying in capellos thoughts (not sure he has any though) he stands more chance of doing that playing against the best in the world.

    Plus as someone said before, can’t see the missus wanting to move here.

    wish people would stop talking about being dragged into the relegation scrap – half the league is currently in the relegation scrap, it’s that tight.

    if it’s late may and we’re only 3 points off 3rd bottom, then i’ll be worried, but halfway through the season, with the team showing a bit of fight and passion, i’m happy enough as it stands – don’t forget we have a few players due back from injury who could see us push back up the league, not to mention any possible incomings in the window.
