Blinded By Beckham

Having just finished listening to Arry on the radio and two things strike me. One is that I’m amazed I don’t have a buy a new radio today. Two, is I’m becomingly increasingly worried about our glorious manager.

This Beckham thing seems to have become a fixation. We have bigger fish to fry. Yes Beckham would be a ‘triffic’ addition but it terrifies me that somehow the dismal efforts to bring in the right man/men last month are somehow now being traded off against landing Sir David. In November. That’s jam tomorrow, territory.

When it comes to goals most fans prescribe to the old maxim, ‘a goal is a goal’. Many Tottingham fans (notably in the thick of the Stratford debate) prefer football played the Spurs way. Some wit, some guile , perhaps a dash of flash. Is Redschnapps cooing about Becks relentlessly planting the ball on 3MP’s bonce really what we’re after?

Arry has worked wonders. But are we going to end up being a slick Watford?

  • spurfanindia says:

    We have the players..I love crouch (No Sarcasm intended.Play him in a 4-4-2 )I love Assou Ekkotto..We will finish fourth

    • ricospur says:

      you love 2 goals in 20 odd league games do you?! you love a striker who cant run, head, shoot or pass and bleeds our club for 65k a week do you?

      • Greg says:

        he may not score goals but he’s set up loads of goals for Rafa..

        but on the other hand he has missed loads of chances as well (see match against Birmingham)

          Crouch has had this all of his career due to his ‘non-standard’ body shape. People love him when he’s scoring but jump on his back every time he has a goal drought. Pav is woefully inconsistent and at times shows the touch of Titus Bramble yet the fans sing his name ‘to give him encouragement’.

          Unfortunately fans will never relate to Crouchie and never give him the kind of unwavering support Pav gets.

          Every coach in the country rates him, are you saying fans who’s only involvement in football is watching Match of the Day or even watching 90 minutes know better?

    • ricospur says:

      i dont care what his body shape is, every coach in the country rates him? top four aspiring coaches i think not. goal drought? his whole career has been a goal drought look up the stats. Pav isnt ideal but scores more goals than crouch irrefutable.

    Agree with you whole heartedly H, He seems to think that old bones are best, because he csn pick them on the cheap, transfer wise that is. The main reason for Beckham is support for the Olympic stadium as he is a very good ambassador for the game and a great one to have on our side.

  • spurstough says:

    Just smoke and mirrors my friend smoke and mirrors ;-)

  • spurfanindia says:

    Crouch is directly involved in 19 of our goals this season.13 goals and Six assists.Only Van Der Vaart and Bale matches this..He is not as useless as you suggest.He is not a selfish player..Can anybody remember when Pavlyuchenko assisted a goal ?
