Beckham's dad tips him to stay with Man U: and presumably he would have an inside edge that the tabloids do not. Beckham sat against Arsenal last week and didn't start against Real Madrid this week - tabloid transfer speculation overdrive! The consensus seems to have him heading to Real Madrid for 38m but would moving Beckham cost Man Utd 100m in lost income over the next five years? Keep him or lose him?

As happy as i am about another football post, i am sick and tired of Beckham, Beckham, BECKHAM!!! Shit...what about Ronaldo?! Carlos?! Henry even...? He is a name...and his name is 40 times more recognizable than he is skilled as a footballer.

Must be his sexy wife, SF. Now if you had her, you'd live up to your appellation! Soccernet had an interesting (to me) article on who Ferguson might go after with all that cash: Who replaces Beckham? One thing, the article mentions replacing Ryan Giggs. Why would ManU replace him?

Because he's old, and on his last legs. (Legs, heh, get it?) Here's a list of players that will be going cheap at the end of the season.

Here's my bet: Dad will be shutting up tight and smiling when Man U gets a big transfer fee upwards of 40m pounds and Beckham has a nice extra zero on his wage packet.

But Real Madrid "officially" says "No."
