Good luck Beckham and why not!! The begrudgers can only shout at their TV
Good luck to Beckham in Miami. I can't see football really taking off properly in the US until the MLS drops this franchise model though. That's just not how the sport works around the world. For US soccer to be anywhere near as good as global football, they need to introduce more divisions with promotion and relegation, just like everyone else. Right now, the MLS is more akin to a private club.
Thoughts of when the name BECKHAM echoed through the crowd still runs in my memory. Considering the fact of him owning a club, i congratulate him on that and wish him the best for his club. I have always wanted to become a great footballer. But if there is a chance BECKHAM could do some changes in my case. There no problem at all. If this be a joke, then me joking about this is very serious.
Beckham's name and the hoopla associated with it will attract some followers in the USA,at least in the short term but soccer will always be something of an amusement rather than real sport to Americans when compared to their American Handegg game.
If I were David (Robert Joseph) Beckham, I would rather think about the memories of the so-called 'golden generation' (he was one of them, after all) in the World Cups 2002 and 2010 -- 'golden' men hardly need golden words, don't you think so? ... 'Bend it like Beckham', as we were told: I sometimes wonder how this cliche failed in 2010?
Had a Belly full of Beckham ? The Gormless Generation ? Plastered with tasteless tattoos ? Try these underpants on 🚼
If only hype and ego = success !!!.
Donald Trump has invited all Uk multi millionaires to move to the USA.As they will not be treated as hate figures by the general public
Love how a self-named Chelsea fan made uneducated comments about MLS club names and "football". Did you forget your "legend" Lampard when to New York City FOOTBALL Club?MLS is doing great, learn about it. Premiership is killing us, with plastic fans and half and half scarves. The roles have been ironically reversed. Check out the atmosphere at Seattle Sounders FC games. 68,000, place is nuts.
@273 Dobby Your post sums up my feelings, entirely.... and probably the feeling a of every decent, football loving, balanced human being. Help is available for the angry, bitter, hate-filled trolls, if they would only accept they have a jealousy issue.
Personally this just shows how blinkered our football is in Britain. Here we have an extremely well respected, talented, wealthy ex-player with a passion to give something back to the game. So instead of the FA challenging his passion to developing the game in Eng he is encouraged to do it overseas. Such a waste.Good luck to him.
@380 Warrington SeymourWe do care, though. What David Beckham is planning will help football world-wide. Especially regarding bringing young players through. Take your bitter blinkers off.
I have never forgiven Beckham from the 1998 World Cup when received a straight red for kicking out at Diego Simeone of Argentina. I was at the game and like so many other supporters came away devastated. We had the game won after a brilliant goal by Owen but Beckham had to go and spoil it and showed what a petulant brat he was and still is. I also can't stand his insufferable wife.
@294 Dave N Ahhh... Are you having a bad day?
Hopefully it will be a disaster; no fans turn up, the team are rubbish, the whole venture goes into liquidation and the ex-ManUre selfish one ends up owing billions. Then he goes to prison and we never hear of him ever again. And he drops the soap in the showers.
His arrogance in demanding a Knighthood is staggering, he won nothing with England, unlike Bobby Moore and Alan Ball. I wonder how their families feel ?
He'll fail just like he did with England.
He has the self-awareness to know management is not for him. Good on him. He has put in his time to know how to develop into a good footballer so has every chance of successfully developing new talent. Look forward to watching his new enterprise develop...
