The new kid, No.77, put through his paces at Tottenham’s training ground in Chigwell (wonder if anyone will be ballsy enough to cut up his underwear?):
Notice how delighted Becks’ new (temporary) team-mates look. Even though most of them are millionaires, don’t underestimate how starstruck they will be to be training with one of the most famous people on the planet. Everyone will want to be his mate, especially back-of-the-coach lads like Robbie Keane.
And why No.77? I assume it’s only because the shirt numbers he’s worn before – Nos.7 (A. Lennon), 23 (C. Cudicini) and 32 (B. Assou-Ekotto) – weren’t available.
