I was shocked to learn a few days back that David Beckham is to get a knighthood , courtesy of Tony Blair in New Year's honours list to be announced in the next few days..
I am not sure if he deserves it. He has yet to win a World Cup for England . He has flopped or done something stupid at every World Cup he has appeared for England , bar one. He has done well for Man U, but he got richly paid for his appearances for Man United. So I really find it difficult to accept, that he has done anything to deserve the knighthood.
Considering of all the English players who won the World Cup in 1966 only 3 or 4 got knight hoods, IIRC, does David really deserve it ? What about guys in the past then who were pretty good like Peter Shilton, Alan Shearer etc.
What do you think ?
