Spurs In For What Arsenal Don't Want

Spurs In For What Arsenal Don't Want

It appears that Spurs manager Martin Jol is pondering a move for ex-England player David Beckham.

Jol made his announcement only a short time after Arsene Wenger said he wasn't interested in the player.

'I'll sit down and have a think about it. said Tubby.

'We are well covered on the flanks already. It's a difficult one.

'We've got Wayne Routledge, although he is on loan, plus Hossam Ghaly and Aaron Lennon.'

As usual, Spurs are looking at bringing in a player who has often been linked with Arsenal. Indeed Beckham himself said last term that he would consider a move to Arsenal.

However Wenger see's no reason to bring him, or any other player, to North London.

'I've said already that I will not buy anybody in January, whether that's free or with a fee. I have the number of players I need.' said Wenger.

'For West Brom we made nine changes and won while having several players missing with injury, so why would I buy anyone else?'

'David Beckham's age would not prevent me from buying him but I'm only focused on what we already have this season.'

His age would definitely not bother Sp*rs! Just look at Edgar Davids. I'd suggest the merchandise rights may have an implication on the decision!

You could also consider Lennon, Dawson, Huddlestone as examples of where we have tended to go for youth. The general consensus at WHL is that Martin Jol was merely being polite when he said he would consider it .... its a non-starter as his signing would simply impede the development of some younger players coming through. Is Davids the only example you can come up with?

Hang on now, Wenger has said he rates Beckham, and Spurs would certainly roll out the red carpet, can you imagine the shirt sales? He is past his best and America might be the right move, but I don't think either team can say he won't be with them next year. The one thing I can say for sure is that Jose doesn't want him!

Wenger always says he rates players, he is a very polite man......unlike some I could mention.

The thought of Liar Jol thinking gives me visions of Homer Simpson thinking of doughnuts!

I think there was a time when Wenger would have liked to bring Beckham in. But once again, one expects idiotic comments from Chelsea fans, then again it is Wenger's transfer policy to bring in old, highly paid, egotistical superstars and watch them grow old. But like I say, when you've only been watching footie for two years, what do you expect? Termites.

Don't have a header of the ball. Err so Ledley King can't head the ball?, Berbatov (who Wenger and Ferguson were interested in) can't head the ball? Whilst I understand there is animosity between teams people shouldn't make comments if they obviously watch games with their eyes closed and hands over their ears. As that can be the only way they arrived at that observation - or lack of it
