    Got me silly hat on this morning but with Beckham looking to be nowhere near a deal with another club I personally (okay maybe in my fantasy land) would enquire as to how he would feel about playing as a RWB.

    Lord knows the man can put a ball in the box and if he was to replace Stam we would be no worse of from the point of defence.

    Roberto when you read this, get him signed up lad.

    EDIT: Put the finances aside hes got enough fookin money as far as I am concerned :angry:

    I heard she’s more a primark girl than Matalan.

    And another thing Salford, not but a couple of hours ago, you asked if Donners was pissed for suggesting Marlon King!

    Like I had said in my fantasy land.

    But in serious land you do realise King is a woman beater who cost us millions of pounds because Whelan had the decency to turn his back on the scummy bar stuord.

    Yup I would say there is more chance of us signing Beckham, Drogba & Ryan Giggs all in one swoop.

    As daft as it sounds, we need this type of marquee signing. Think how many shirts we would sell with a name like Beckham on the back. Those extra ticket sales. The extra publicity. The wages wouldn’t be an issue.

    Yes its daft and never going to happen.

    Speaking to my Dad on the way home from the game on Saturday I said something similar about a striker. Why do we constantly take risk after risk on 3 or 4 million players with no PL experience when we could spend 8 on a proven scorer at this level? We’ve made a profit this year and have 60m on the way if we survive. We need to ask ourselves whether we ever want to move to the next level (which can be done without going bankrupt) or stay on a shoe string and hope we survive year after year.

    Fernando Torres was a proven scorer.

    Michu had no PL experience.

    Which one is doing better?

    Our resident accountants will be on to you for suggesting this ! ;)

    Okay Phil/Egg, I’ll step up to the mark with my opinion:

    If we filled the stadium every week we’d still only generate an extra £3 million – ish.

    Forget the Beckham scenario. He’s unique and it would never happen for us in whatever circumstances you could ever possibly think up.

    So, let’s say it’s another less prominent marquee signing. For starters, you wouldn’t have much change from the £3 million after covering his wage demands, so that means we’d have to get him to sign on the cheap – because the most you could expect from sponsorship would be an extra couple of million, and no matter who you have on the back of a Wigan shirt, if it’s not Beckham, Messi or Ronaldo, their sales aren’t going to generate enough money to cover his signing.

    Then you’d have to convince this international superstar that moving to Wigan would be a good move for him – considering we’d be competing with every other Premier League club for his signature, with most of them not being located in a working class ex-coal mining town.

    Simply: it won’t happen, and you’re back to bidding for a couple of players who are £3 million because they’re more likely to want to play for Wigan than one £7 or £8 million proven superstar.

    I know damn well that someone as high profile as Beckham wouldn’t sign but we’ve managed to sign players like Heskey and Melchiot so there must be a well known name somewhere that would sign in a bid to put bums on seats.

    Garswood, rate Michu next season. Plenty players have taken the league by storm before flopping like a fish.
