It's funny that towards end of England career that he was cheered on the field as a sub like a conquering hero. (An impact player that never made an impact). I found him an embarrassment in an england shirt at the end. I would have been embarrassed to pick up a winners medal at PSG if I was him. The fact that he has done little positive or productive since, except PR stunts, says a lot about him.
As an ex-City player he could have chosen his role models a little better. That said, he's done a decent job so far but I fear he'll be doing a lot more defending against Columbia.
The tattoo collection is going well, all be needs now is to marry a dead behind the eyes stick insect.
They both earned 100+ caps. Beckham was donated 70-80 at the behest of the FA to facilitate shirt sales and uphold obligations to wealthy sponsors.
Gerrard and Lampard were far better players? For England, they did absolutely nothing.
If he is inspired by Beckham then we can expect them going out before the semis, or he'll get himself sent off, or dive out of a tackle, or miss a penalty or cry on the bench when subbed as skipper. Or he can come back next world cup when injured and be a tailor's dummy mascot on the sidelines. Poor old Becks could not even be a good mascot at a world cup. Never mind perform in one.
@180. If Becks would have had pace then he would have been a fast one-trick show pony (which mostly misfired). People go on about his free kick ability, but he scored so few goals this way. You see just as good free kicks in lower leagues. He was not unique or outstanding. Some went in, most did not. How many goals did England score following a Beckham cross anyway? P.S. Beckham wembley goals? Nil
Inspired by BEckham...oh fearDoes that mean a gross bling soaked showbiz marriage to a z list celebrity followed by children shoved prematurely into the limelight endless self loving preening. commercialised narcissism, world wide money grubbing and absolutely zero World Cup or Euro wins for England
@181Don't cheapen the debate with insults and gauging things in monetary terms. Beckham craves respect; he can't buy it and his football days are over. He wants a knighthood to retrospectively validate his football career.Nobody says he had no talent. They simply say he was overrated.
@178. Yes I forgot about that. The bit of the opening ceremony with him on that boat was nauseating. People claim he won us the Olympics. Again another Beckham myth. Think it had more to do with Coe, Redgrave and other great Olympians. If he has so much influence and did win us the Olympics, why when he was involved in the world cup bid did we get just 2 votes?
I would not mind having no talent like some idiots are saying if i could be the richest player in the world.
