Beckham Is Back

by | 13th, October 2006

DAVID Beckham is back.

“I’LL be BECK,” says the Star’s front page, and so it will be.

Dave might not be able to run all that fast, beat a decent opponent for skill or take a penalty, but he is the best England player by a mile.

So having been dropped from the England football team after the World Cup, David is now all set to make a triumphant return. No more will England lose to Croatia. No more will they take two bottles into the shower. No more will the lads venture onto the field of play with their faces unmoisturised, untanned skin open to ageing wind, rain and sun.

“Come and get me – I am only a phone call away,” says Dave in the Star.” A source in the Beckham camp says: “He would really love to play for England again and is ready, willing and able to help the side get back to winning ways.”

Hurrah! Sure, England never got beyond the quarter-finals of a competition with Dave in the team, but what looked then like failure now appears as a glorious era of success and adventure.
We need you, Dave. “COME BECK,” pleads the Sun’s front-page headline. “(ALL IS FORGIVEN.”) the paper invites readers to reply to a “YOU THE JURY” phone poll and say “YES” or “no” to Dave’s return.

So come on Dave. Stop hiding behind that veil and get ready to bend it one more time with feeling. Your country calls…
