Wembley Stadium - (Ass Mess): David Beckham, who is poised to secure his 95th England cap tonight in the friendly against Brazil 'needs to score at least two damned good goals before the rumored knighthood is in the bag' according to Whitehall football sources in charge of the PM's resignation honors.
But some insiders are saying that Becks had better wait 'until he's had the full 100 England caps' and maybe aim for that histeric knighthood in the New Year 2008 honors instead.
"Let's face it, John Terry is scraping the bottom of the proverbial barrel to recall the ex-England captain after two dismal World Cup results that stalled after the quarter final attempts.
"No player has ever been knighted while actually playing, so unless he's willing to retire completely and ditch the LA fantasy, we can't see it happening.
"The other concern of course is 'Lady Posh'.
"Many England fans would rather eat shrapnel than see Victoria style herself 'Lady Beckham'.
"That's plenty for the gong committee to think about given the current climate."
