All Things Footie | Thursday, November 28 | Jordan

OK, It's all rubbish

So — given the evident interest — I might as well put anyone who wants to know out of their misery. The rumour started on a website and was subsequently passed around by unscrupulous e-mailers, then published by even more unscrupulous football web sites. The rumour stated that Victoria Beckham was about to leave her husband as he was having an affair with Michael Owen's sister. The e-mail claimed that the information was from a certain red-topped Sunday newspaper's sports writer and was a cast iron fact. It is of course, absolute nonsense so I wouldn't concern yourself with it.

Rumour Update!

After much searching and a bit of luck, I've found out what the rumour is. I can't post it here as I don't fancy being sued by the Beckhams, I really want to give you all a teaser… I don't know how far I can go without being taken to court. Maybe I've gone too far already.

David Beckham Malicious Rumours

OK, so just out of curiosity I check my visitor logs. Then I find that in the last 3 hours more people visited all things footie than in the previous two days. A quick examination of the referrers and I realise that nearly every visitor today has come — via google or yahoo — looking for the details of a scurrilous rumour circulating about David Beckham.

Some would say that by titling this post ‘David Beckham Malicious Rumours’, and mentioning it again then, I am just trying to trick in even more visitors. Though those people would be right in part, I really want to know what this rumour is. The only details I can find are that a web-site started a rumour, it's been circulated by e-mail and furiously denied by the Beckhams.

The information has now been removed from the offending website and the Beckhams have said that ‘no publication of these rumours should be made’ [details here].

If anyone knows what the rumour is, can they please let me know by e-mail or by leaving a comment below. I'll even write a disclaimer for you. Any comments left on all things footie are for entertainment purposes only and in no way represent any real life events or actions performed by Mr David Beckham. Thank you.
