Title: Beckford-watch
Post by: Dr. Sponge on February 03, 2010, 08:35:05 PM
In light of all the Beckford transfer rumours involving us, I'll be on close Beckford-watch tonight on ITV, for the Leeds-Spurs FA Cup replay.

He'll probably pick up a serious knee injury now he might be an Everton player.  :whistle:

I'll be checking the lad out too, i hope Leeds win tonight. Did anyone see Grayson on SSN any time this week, still banging on about if Beckford does well then bigger teams than the ones he's being linked with could come in for him, what a tit!

Its a classic case of trying to squeeze every last bit of effort out of Beckford before he leaves on a free at the end of the season, rather than being a tit i would say it was good management.

Let's face it, if he plays well tonight 'Arry will chuck some money at him and he will go to Spurs never to be seen again.

As long as Saha stays, I'm not too fussed. Sadly, if Beckford comes, I can't see that happening.

Same here.  I hope he looks the part.

Good management for Leeds bad for us.

I just dont get the fuss over him. Yes I know he has scored goals in the cup and league one but his general play, his knowledge and understanding of teammates looks err dire at best. Signing him for me would be a backward step and as i have said before to lose any striker we currently have (specially saha) and replace them with beckford is poor judgement for me, i hopr he proves me wrong but i think the only plus of him is he is free and will be sold on for a small profit. I want more for Everton tho than that

He's doing well really hope we sign this fella.

But is Beckford Watch hosted by Bill Oddie?

As for actually signing the lad i'm of the opinion he won't make it here as i've heard nothing but bad things from Leeds fans but theres no risk as it's a free so we might as well go for it. The worse case scenario is he's shit and we sell him to someone like coventry or Forest for £1 million or so.

Jermain Defoe yes - Jermain Beckford no!!!

good piece of athleticism to get that shot away, not enough quality to finish, doin ok
Title: Re: Beckford-watch
Post by: Jimmywhack on February 04, 2010, 02:47:01 AM
He is obviously a talent at league one but his all rounf play imo is nowhere near good enough and at 26....................

Nice foul on Corluka before. I dislike Spurs and am always happy to see their players hurt

Then again I would rather have Jermaine DEFOE

Least now there out the furore about him will die down, if we get him we do, if we dont i wont lose no sleep

Defoe needs loads of chances to score (which he wouldn't get here) and he has a shite record against bigger teams, like someone else said, if Beckford turns out crap then we can get a fee from him just like Lucas Neill!

Post by: sharpattack on February 04, 2010, 03:30:21 PM
Lads really are clutching at straws if they think Beckford has anything to offer. If he was 18/19 and playing in the lower leagues that's one thing but he's been round the block a few times at 26. He might make championship level at best.

Defoe is a fantastic striker and would more than hold his own in any team in the Prem.

have you seen the number of misses we have had this season.......???

if we get him, lets hope he's like ian wright!
a really late starter in the game but had sublime finishing technique
Title: Re: Beckford-watch
Post by: Robioto on February 04, 2010, 07:29:01 PM
Not good enough for Everton. I've seen him about 8-10 times this season 2 of them I was at the game and is not good enough.
Title: Re: Beckford-watch
Post by: GLewis on February 04, 2010, 08:02:18 PM
He's free so it's no risk.

Surely this is obvious.

And there's no way that Moyes would be thinking of him as a Saha replacement.

Give him to moysie. Look what he did with peanuts.

Pienaar is hardly comparable to Beckford. If anything that's an insult to the South African!
Title: Re: Beckford-watch
Post by: Dr. Sponge on February 05, 2010, 12:19:03 AM
Our survey says.... X

Looks like he has a little bit of talent, but far from a team player. I found myself forcing compliments, but in reality his first touch isn't good enough for the Premier League, and at 26 there's not much room for improvement. Compare him to the opposition's strikers and he loses by a mile.

But saying all that, he is free, so it'd depend on his wage demands. I'm 75% certain he couldn't cut it at this level.

Post by: Jimmywhack on February 05, 2010, 01:30:10 AM
Ha ha comparing him to someone he was widely tipped as a talent at Ajax and had 12 bad months at dortmund is one of the funniest posts i ever read!!!! ha ha

There isn't a striker in the champoinship that can bridge the gap to the premiership, let alone division one.

depends what you mean by bridge the gap

there have been plenty of strikers from the championship that could/have done a job in the premiership

doyle, johnson, beattie, ebanks blake, keane, king, darren bent, marcus bent, young, ashton, huckerby and zamora.

Dont think theres ever been a real world class striker from the lower leagues but more than enough capable players. if hes free that worth a gamble i say

whether

Point taken with Johnson, Ashton and Young but they were all snapped by premiership sides when they were quite young; and for big/decent money. And it must be 10 years since Robbie Keane has played in the Championship. As for the rest of them I don't think they would have made a signifigant difference to our recent history, even if we had got them at their prime.

Pretty sure Johnson was about 26 when he moved here, which if I'm not mistaken is also Beckford's age.

Yes, but Johnson had already proved himself in the Premier League.
