Real Madrid WIN La Liga!

European Football Manchester United

comment on the article

For nearly all of the second half of the season, Beckham has arguably been the most influential player for Real Madrid in their quest for their first title in four years. Tonight, Beckham played his last game for Real Madrid, and until he was substituted, Real Madrid were losing 0-1 and were on their way to conceding the title to Barcelona who were winning 4-0. But Jose Antonio Reyes came on and changed the game for Real by scoring two wonderful goals. Despite Barcelona's 5-1 thrashing of Getafe, Real Madrid's 3-1 victory over Mallorca meant that they would finish top of La Liga on the smallest of margins of head-to-head ratio. Thus, sending many millions of Madrid fans all around the world into celebration.

Beckham's career at Real Madrid has been a roller coaster ride, with many highlights and many lows. But his career at the club of Galacticos ends in sheer happiness. Though he may not have been the catalyst for Real's victory tonight, he still leaves Madrid the happiest man in the world.

Youíre a donkey, you donít make any sense. You say beckham was poor and Iím assuming weíre still talking about the last 2 games Ė which he wasnít and set up most of the goals.

Ok so if gerrard is out of future games we can replace him experienced players, but can you say that about every position on the pitch, if Robinson is injured foster hasnít had much time etc,

End of the day maybe you should learn the aim of a game is to win Ė especially with an international qualifier Ė and Beckham was the best person available for his position as was every other player. The team was selected to win and thatís exactly what they did, so get off your high horse, criticize them when they lose not when mclaren gets decisions right.

Iíve got an idea about the offside rule Ė maybe you should go and learn what the object of a game of football is,

Well actually no, if you are talking about a half fit Beckham, then you are talking about the big games when he was poor.

Don't worry. I wouldn't expect you to work that one out.

Is Beckham REALLY the best player in that position. Of course not.

He cannot run at or beat players, he all often gets drawn into the centre where he just pumps a 'glory ball' upfield.

He just does not deliver in big games, never has and never will.

Big games like the champion league final? game against argentina? germany? Go on then name another english right winger who we could play instead who as delivered in big games

Hes never run and beaten players, when respected managers like Capello and fergurson played they knew this - however they also saw what he could do for a team - but not knowing much about football you probably wont understand

lol finn across 10 years the best you can come up with is a toe-poked penalty against argentina in a game where he was a zero threat to them in outfield play once again and one freak match where england had a player who scored a hat-trick-michael owen-yet i dnt see u on here day after day lavishing praise on him.Emile Heskey was as good as beckham that night-i guess hes "world class" too is he?Oh yea and the CL final where he was so out of his depth in the centre of midfield when playing against the big-boys that his manager had to haul him out of there asd quick as he good to stop utd being completely overun through the middle.This is the "icredible","unique" and "world beating" "world class" record of achievement for the "worlds most famous footballer" is it?Its mildly amusing,one has to comment.

he can make more billions than any footballer or individual in human history mate but he`ll NEVER be regarded by history as a great player and one that deserves to sit at the top table of players through our game and thats the truth.How many of those millions do you think hed give up just to be able to look back and say he turned up in a world cup and proved he was worthy of his status eh?Quite a few id say,alas it can never be so.

Seriously Dwight, just give it a rest!.

I am now getting fed-up with the mention of Beckham's name but only because every time I come on 606 to talk about footy you are going on about him again.

You moan about how he is always in the papers etc. etc. yet you talk about him much more than anyone I have ever known!. You even turn threads about something else into conversations about him.

I am no longer going to argue my point about it as you know how I ffel but I would love to hear your thoughts on other footballing issues.

Please man, give us all a break, eh?.
