Beckham 'thinks money is ruining the game...'

uk.news.yahoo.com/1/20081030...

I couldn't help but laugh when i read this. Either this guy has got no brain or he is trying to tell the worst joke ever for him to say something like that, though i think the former is true here. If he so believes in hunger for success and playing at the top level then can he explain what he's doing in America?? He is the most perfect example of money ruining football and he comes out with this! Unbelievable, i wonder what Posh will say when she reads his interview.....

youre the one trying to rewrite facts.Ferguson,-when asked for his definitive list of the very highest level of player hes been lucky enough to have worked with during his time at OT gave a list of 6 or 7 of that exhlated level.He would still say the likes of bruce and irwin served him well but like Beckham they arent of the higest order of player,any football man knows that as of course does britains finest manager.The sort of level that you need to be to be described as "great" by history ferguso knows can only be attributed to the best level of players even if he appreciated the bruces/the irwins/the Beckhams for a short time.Ronaldo starting this season late is again showing the likes of you,ignorant as youve proved you are on our game,what a genuinely world level players does.He alreadys had more impact on united and scored more goals in about 1 month of playing after returning from injury that beckham managed in entire seasons at united,encapsulating the sheer chasm that exists between players of such genius as ronaldo and the tryers like your man who could only ever get so far.

All you've managed to say is:

- Beckham isn't in SAF's top 6 or 7 greatest United players (care to prove the link or is this more made up lies?)

- Ronaldo is better than Beckham

Well wowee - amazing. What's your point? That doesn't remotely detract from my statement.

Before the 2002 WC, SAF was asked to predict the semi finalists. He did so, and it didn't include England.

The headline in the Sun?

'Fergie: England have no chance'

That's why your post, without any quotes or content, can be disregarded.

Not to mention that regardless of your definition of world class, it doesn't prove what I say about Beckham wrong. Still a high quality player - obvious to everyone except the blind or bitter.

depends on your definition of "high quality" i suppose.A one trick flat track bully that gets found out v real quality and i dare say Ferguson isnt a manager who elects to flog "high quality" out his club to his biggest european rivals when theyre just 27.He will however see a club like Real whos overtaken his side and sell them a pap lightweight who will instigate thier immediate nose-dove from european heavyweights to european no-hopers-oh,and thats justr what happened after "becks" arrived wasnt it?

Yeah, yeah 5T.
So you're argument is that, not only is David Beckham not a great of the game (a point on which I happen to agree with you, by the way),but, infact, he is such a poor player that he has single-handedly stopped the England team performing during his entire career and, again single-handedly, turn Real Madrid from a European Cup winning team into a bunch of also rans.
Any good performances or successes at his clubs have been achieved despite him, while any failures, both at club and international level, are solely his responsibility.
Any priase for him is purely the result of his PR experts and can thus be ignored, but any criticism of him is gospel truth.
Finally, anyone saying he was a good player is actually saying that he is one of the greatest players that ever lived and should, therefore, be treated with contempt, while anyone saying he is or was not world class is actually saying that he was always complete rubbish and should be venerated as one of the great philosophers of the sport.
That's about it, isn't it?

Shall we re-post the articles that show how well Beckham has done at United or Real?

We're now back to the part where you through random comments into a rant to save going back and acknowledging the points that have proved you wrong.

In black and white for everyone to see, thanks 5T.

David Beckham, you really are rich, you've had a great career and you are so good looking. You must be stupid. That would make me feel superior.
