Moonlighting: David Beckham As Pub Landlord?

Back in the days when footballers earned next to nothing, made crap records and had haircuts resembling epileptic puppies, a favourite retirement plan for many was to open a pub in the English countryside. Why? We have no idea, the notion of standing next to a wooden bar, cradling a pint of warm, flat beer and having a conversation about whippets not generally being one of our top-rated pastimes.

This might be about to change, however, as word reaches us that a Mr. David Beckham is considering opening a hostelry in LA with mad chef type Gordon Ramsay.

Whether true or false this story is, we’re choosing to believe it. And make no mistake, once the venue is open for business, we’ll be reserving its private back room for our Kickette Christmas party.

    Has any one else notices that Becks' patchy beard makes him look like Teen Werewolf? It looks like the full moon's just come out.

    i’ve gotta say.

    like honestly. he’s just amazing. i don’t know what it is. maybe cus he’s always so angry and “raaaaawr”… it’s a bit of a turn on, yeh? haha

    anyway, that’s a pretty crap name for a pub, if he’s going for it.. :/ i don’t think many would go there! lol

    I think this is a bad idea. Like someone else said, there are plenty of traditional English pubs in California.

    Also you have to factor that in a few years, no one is going to remember who David Beckham and Gordon Ramsay were. Remember this is Hollywood.

    The only possible way this would work is if David and Gordon hung out there often. Like Alice Cooper in his restaurant Alice Cooperstown.

    The thought of David wearing a red blazer with a black & blue striped tie, shouting obscenities at people would alone be worth flying to LA. Time Gentlemen Please… anyone, anyone?

    I see Posh as more of a Kat Slater than a Peggy Mitchell. There’s a rude tart with a heart joke in there somewhere, I’m far too tired to find it.

    Oh my god I so agree with a few of you kickettes when we say that Becks and Ramsey look alike.. it's so freaky.

    Maybe they were separated at birth ! :O

    These 2 are morphing into each other, I swear becks is looking more like ramsey everyday.

  8. SunnyK says:

    Is it just me or do they look alike? Just me?

  9. tammyv says:

    there are at least a dozen well established traditional English pubs in LA and many more around Southern California. It is not a lacking ninch market in need of development

    Am I the only one freaked out about Gordon´s forehead?

    What I think is so weird is that Gordan is always cursing on Hell's Kitchen but when he isnt cooking he seems pretty happy. I wonder how a guy can do something and be so great at cooking and still be stressful doing it.

    • Jules says:

      I think it’s about 75% for the cameras. I don’t doubt he screams in the kitchen but nothing like what he does on Kitchen Nightmares, he’d have been taken to an employment tribunal a thousand times over by now.
