|Not Harpo Beckham|
|Joey - true great|
Joey could only be described as rotund in appearance but he was supreme in the penalty box, he had a deft touch and knew exactly where to put himself. In short he was a natural goal scorer of a type not seen in the much sullied and dishonoured game nowadays. He had a brief flirtation with the Scottish national side and was unfortunate enough to be part of the 1978 World Cup campaign in Argentina, but taht should not tarnish his memory. FB firmly believes that the tired football gag 'Jesus saves, but Joey nets the rebound.' was first written about this hero.
Beckham's recognition of the great contribution to the game by Joey will give a warm glow to Aberdonians of FB's generation wherever they are in the world. It may even bring a new respect for the much tattooed and over eulogised man himself. It is unlikely however that Mrs Beckham will ever enter their affections.
Come on Joey give us a goal.
