Advantages: talent and bags of it
Disadvantages: temper temper David!
Becks as he is more commonly known is perhaps one of the greatest players in the game at the moment. He has a long way to go before we can classify him as one of the best players of all time.
He is a superb passer, crosser and free kick taker. He tracks back and fights for his side! His weakness is almostly sertainly his firey temprament. He has lost his rag in big matches! He lets himelf down and more importantly he lets his side down on such occasions as we all know he is capable of providing match winning crosses (e.g. the Germany game Euro 2000). He is still young and is maturing quickly we hope.
He is not what I would classify as an all-round footballer yet, as we rarely him beating defenders towards the by-line. In my opinion is is probably capabale but managers have always used his passing strength ebfore resorting to this. He has been condition to look for crosses first. While united and England continue to score in this way - who cares.
He has the potential to be an all time great like Best and Law but I doubt whether he is in Pele's league!
