David Beckham? Really?

David Beckham? Really?

Prospective new Rovers owner has declared that if he is successful in his takeover bid then one of the first things he would do is aim to bring David Beckham to the club.

In what will be seen as either a brave move or an utterly bonkers one, Syed would look to bring one of his idols to Ewood Park... if the financial demands fit within budget.

'I was 26 when I started following the Premier League. I used to like Blackburn back then and also used to follow Manchester United's fortunes because of David Beckham,' Syed told the Daily Mail.

'If my finances allow and his intentions are positive then I would love to take Beckham.'

Bold or stupid?

Personally I will eat my left arm if we get Beckham...

Bold but probably unrealistic. I would love Beckham, he would fill the void left by Bentley. But I don't see it happening, if we go in for him so will a host of other clubs. I would like to see us sign another Bentley type player though, maybe even Bentley himself. Or Dos Santos from Tottenham.

I agree, bring Bentley back. He was amazing for us and I think he needs us just as much as we need him.

Probably unrealistic but you never know. Perhaps he could be enticed by a player/Ambassador role, this would be still give him some games and as his career wound down it would not be humiliating if he was only selected as a sub. He could be guaranteed a place on the bench, if not as one of the selected subs then in his role as Ambassador (Suit and tie as in South Africa) Big stars draw supporters (and cash) for years to come to a club from outside the area. I lived in North Yorkshire and had no connections with Blackburn, had never even been there, but saw Shearer on TV, bought a season ticket that year and still buying one this season. Would place Rovers on the world stage quickly, be great to travel to the far east and see lots of blue and white shirts with Beckham across the back.

Boy can whip in a cross that is for sure but look at his wages?!? It would smash our structure right out of the park!!!

Exactly. This would be more of a commercial move than a footballing move. Big names sell shirts, and shirt sales generate money. I would prefer Bentley over Beckham. But maybe we could get both, Bentley for footballing reasons and Beckham for commercial reasons.

Agreed - the man is a license to print money.

I doubt he would come to be honest, it would take a massive chunk of the budget in wages to get him here, and would he be that great at 35??

He would probably only play half the matches, at the most. But it's more of a commercial move than anything. I for one would love to have his name in the back of my shirt.
