    I thought i'd add this topic about Beckham because there has been so much press coverage in the UK about how little well known David Beckham is in the US! so i thought i'd ask if anyone else has heard of him, likes him and thinks that he's the best football player in the world like me! + this is very topical as he has juz moved to Real Madrid and is all over the UK newspapers as normal! hehe! post away........ :unsure:

    I dunno wot all the hype about DB is! He's only moving to Madrid, he's still gonna play for England, but then, I'm not really a footie fan!
    Bend it Like Beckham was good!

    I wish him good luck, play in Real Madrid is very Difficult. There are a lot of "Stars" and too much insolation. I´m Real Madrid Fan but my prefer is Figo, when I see to Beckham I´ll opine.

    Beckham & Victoria the new members from Spanish " Jet Set" OMG :baa:

    GOOD LUCK BECKHAM

    I have to say that as a player I think beckham is overrated. he used to be superb, but personally i believe soccer has become about the money to him. And I don't think hes lived up to his hype as of late.

    I agree with you, Beckham is overrated, but he´s a good player. His manager is his "wife". But, The Real Madrid is very hard, there are a lot of good players. His price 35 Million Euros aprox is Excessive.

    But I repeat, Beckham is a good player, he ´s Welcome to Madrid and the Real Madrid, I wish him the best

    I do agree with u all, he is quite over rated, and he earns way 2 much money, all footballers do! i mean all they do is kick a ball around a pitch 4 a living, and yeah, skill is involved and training and all, but when they moan about stuff like their publicity and say they have 2 work 2 hard i juz laugh and think "OMG - speak 2 people who work 9-5 and have really tough jobs, firefighters etc!! grrrrrrr - sorry my issues! blame it on doing A Level PE and sport's politics!
