David Beckham NOT Welcome At Man City

Vital Manchester City regular, fifthcolumnblue posted the following message via our 100% City Chat forum. It begins, Dear Khaldoon Al Mubarak...

Speculation Surrounding David Beckham

I feel I speak for all City fans when I say we are both amazed and delighted by the positive changes wrought upon our football club under your chairmanship and the ownership of Sheikh Mansour. You have earned the eternal gratitude of all true Manchester City fans by bringing about a new era of professionalism in all areas of the club, and success will surely follow.

There is however, one thing that is causing a great deal of consternation amongst the City faithful, to whit the persistent rumour that the club are considering moving to sign one Mr David Beckham.

I believe that every fan will realise the amazing commercial benefits that would accrue as a result of so famous a personage signing for Manchester City. I do feel however, that the vast majority of fans would be extremely disappointed and upset if this player was to appear in a blue shirt. This man will forever be associated with our detested red neighbours, and has constantly and consistently criticised our club, most recently during our attempts to sign Kaka from AC Milan.

So whilst the signing of David Beckham would undoubtedly reap certain benefits in terms of merchandising, publicity etc, I feel that it would prove disastrously unpopular with virtually all City fans.

Given the fact that David Beckham's impact as a football player is clearly waning, I feel his signing would also have a detrimental impact on the team as a whole. In short, David Beckham is a player in decline, and most fans will feel signing him would be of no benefit to the team and it's pursuit of success.

Once again, thank you for what you have done for our club. Only a few years ago, many City fans were genuinely fearful that we were heading for the abyss. However, signing a player most of us despise would erode some of the good will your actions have engendered amongst the City faithful

Please do not sign David Beckham.

Should this ever be sent (and I hope it does) to the heirarchy of Manchester City, I would be more than willing to add my name to the bottom of this letter. I too understand the financial benefits of such a signing, but the negativity amongst the genuine supporters of our great club would reach stratospheric levels - myself included. Dr Mulbarak - if you are considering this - please reconsider your position.

i would sign the e- mail/ letter too, as i'm aghast at the thought of'' Brand Beckham' ever soiling our beloved team and wearing the blue that we have loved and cherished for decades, through father to son, if this '' transfer'' was ever to materialise, ADUG has really let the fans down as i think Beckham IS only here for the money as he will not be here for ' the project'... so please Mr Mubarak, do not sign this mercenary......

My intense dislike of this d**k far outweighs any commercial value he may or may not carry. Personally I think it's a bit naive and condescending to think anyone in Asia/Far East will want to run out and buy a City shirt with Beckham on the back. The guy is unwelcome at City and also a bit, well.......yesterday.

Over rated, over hyped and over the hill. Capello knows the score, and I'd be immensely shocked if goldenballs made the plane to SA

I agree he's over the hill and I don't really want him at City but lads get over your selves. His words about City in the past well they mean nothing, he has never actually damaged our club by what he has said, and why on earth are you so full of hate for him. It's like saying you hate the invisible man because he's ugly. I can’t believe people hate for such strange and unfathomable reasons, he played for united so what and do you really care that much, I can’t understand the way some people cling on to anger it must be eating you lot up inside. We are about CITY not united, focus on us not them. I don't like or dislike the bloke, but hating with on foundation is to me more than just a little odd. It’s a bit like saying I wouldn’t own a Ferrari because I saw Beckham get out of one once. I’m sorry I just don’t get the anger you lot carry and hold like a baby. Surely someone has to do something very personal to you to bring out hatred like this. I can’t take anything Beckham has said or done to heart, he’s only Beckham he’s not a god or a voice I respect, sorry gents I can’t really understand why this issue has even been raised. Anger management may be an option to help you deal with things that don’t matter.

I particularly associate with the first paragraph of this letter. We City fans are delighted we have such excellent owners who value professionalism, patience and the ability to do things the right way.

Beckham was overrated at best and we don't want another McManaman/Fowler type coming for one last payday, I thought that we were beyond this type of deal these days and I hope that I'm right as Beckham is in serious decline. He would damage what we are trying to build, isn't needed as we have better midfielders than him and he has bad mouthed us too much in the past. If you are thinking about joining City Beckham please stay away and go to Spurs or back to AC Milan.

Blue_heart, no one mentioned hating him, not one message in fact. I myself stated my "intense dislike" of him, thats been about the strongest reaction. I noticed the word hate six or seven times from you. Whats your beef. Maybe its you in need some sort of therapy if you see things that aren't really there.

Sorry, I would love him at the club, It would be another smack in the eye for the spoit brat next door. My impression of David Beckham changed when he palyed at maine road and was pelted with pound coins, he made no fuss, just shoved them in his pocket and got on with the game. He could have made trouble for City he didn't. He wants to get to the world cup and whoever he plays for will get 100% from him. I cannot remember him ever belittling City in his remarks.

This bellend spoke out publicly against City during Kakagate, pathetically trying to portray himself as "one of the lads" that wanted him to stay at AC Milan. That'll be one of the lads he couldn't communicate with, then.

In Vladimir Weiss and Shaun wright-Phillips we have two exciting talents right midfield who will be with City for a long time. Why should we bring in Beckham for a swan-song? PLEASE DO NOT DO IT!
