'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Beckham Missing United

It now seems David Beckham did not want to leave at all. A lot of us suspected it that time, of course;we had the feeling he was being thrown out on the door by Fergie. Yet Beckham bears no grudge towards his former boss unless I very much misinterpretate his words. He even denied my claim about being thrown out...

'It was an accident,' he said, referring to the famous boot-kicking incident back in 2003, after a 2-0 home defeat in the Cup by Arsenal. 'I've known (Sir Alex) Ferguson since I was 12 years old and we had one or two problems in that time,'

'Maybe he didn't want me to leave.

'I don't think there is any desire on his part for me not to have success. In every way, I hope my luck changes.'

'Spice Boy' retained a soft spot for all the dinners and other social events that took place during his United days.

'I have friends - Ronaldo, Roberto Carlos, Michel Salgado - but we don't go out together enough,' he said.

'At Manchester I was there for 15 years and every day, every match, we were united, win or lose.

'Every 15 days we went out together to dinner with all the players including times when Ferguson and all the coaches came.

'In the three years I've been here we have done that four times.'

Well, David, it would be nice to see you back here though you would not get into the team now I'm afraid. There's no time for emotions in this aspect.

i say we bring him back he could still offer us something and help us win trophys

That's true but is he ready to be no more than a squad player? The midfield should basically be Ronaldo-Scholes-Carrick-Giggs so Beckham should be confined to the bench way too often. If he's ready to do it and Real are ready to part with him for no more than 7m then he's welcome.

players should never go back, it rarely works.
The Fear
we wouldnt have to pay for becks get him in the summer for free
rooneyisgod
But some say a January move is possible. Let's face it: only our heart tells us it would be wise to bring him back. We are a bit short in midfield so he may be useful in the second half of the season but if we recruit some players in the summer, we won't need him. For my heart, it's worth 5 mil (that's been reported as price) to see him here for half of a season but my brain knows it would be just a waste of money.
