Idiots




It is idiots like this that prove to me that David will NEVER conquer America.

What do they expect him to do? Play with one leg?

Too scared? Scared of what?

David has won nearly everything there is to win in football. He is doing these football (I will NEVER call it soccer) fans a favour by highlighting the great game in the US, and this is the thanks he gets.

Just when I was coming around to the idea of David playing for the Galaxy actually working this happens. I hope he comes back to Europe after a year and puts this nonsense behind him.

I am FURIOUS.

To think he said on his blog yesterday, "I’ve been working really hard this week in the gym to try and get fit as quickly as possible and get playing again. As anyone who knows me is well aware, I love playing soccer and can’t wait to get out on the pitch and play a part in the upcoming games".

I'm totally with you!!! I hate how people judges him having no clue of what a great player and human being he is! I saw in youtube the New Beginnigs show and fell in love with him again. I'm so glad he has prove everyone wrong everytime and can keep his head up!

Wow .. how stupid are these people? He's trying his best to get his ankle alot better. I'd like to see those people with a sore ankle playing football lets see how they react. They obviously don't know what they are talking about because he is the best footballer out there. All i know is that David will prove america wrong and ill support him all the way!

But, you should know that any "super" athlete that contracts for such a hefty fee, at quite frankly, an advanced age for the sport, is going to get a lot of scrutiny. Especially when the person joins the team just in time to not be able to play. Becks has to know that it will be an enormous task to convert a nation to being soccer fans. He has only just begun. Give it time.

Remember,they bought their tickets and they wanted to see Becks. Anyone would be pissed. These are DallasFC fans not Galaxy fans. They're just expressing frustration and trying to rile up the Galaxy. No one really hates Becks...It's not that serious.

Lighten up, everybody. We all love Becks, but you're being way too discriminating.

You want him to go back to Europe? Madrid and Man U were SOOOO good to him, weren't they? And, believe me, the Spanish and English fans in other opponent's cities said things A LOT worse than was said in Dallas! Remember the "cancer" comment in England, for example? Americans are passionate, but they don't get so personally nasty as the Europeans with football.

Becks will be fine and will get healthy. As long as he's successful (just like any athlete), his opponents and their fans will be jealous and his own fans will love him. But the point is, they'll still be talking about him. THAT'S SPORTS, FOLKS.

Settle down. These pictures are all from an away game in Dallas where the fans are naturally going to be hostile towards the visiting team and players. That's the case anywhere in the world. Beckham is still very much wanted and treasured by us Galaxy fans and obviously by the staff as well, who are looking out for his and the team's best interest.

I have been a football fan since I as 8 years old, I have even worked in football, I attended the 2006 World Cup, the first game at the new Wembley and will go to Euro 2008 (hopefully) so I know ALL about football and football fans.

I know that ribbing the other teams is par for the course...I have even done it myself (especially to Fat Franky Lampard). But the purpose of having a blog is to write your thoughts and MY thoughts are that these people are IDIOTS.

carito8 said...

Well, but it doesn't matter for what they bought the tickets, it's a game and any player might get hurt and not be able to play, what irritate me is that David is who has been let down many times, not the other way around. Every Club team he's played on by far has betrayed him in some way, Manchester, Real and that's why he is so great cause he just keep doing what he's good at...playing not matter what.

Anonymous said...

These people are mad because there was huge hype in Dallas around the game with Beckham and he wasn't there. All these people were charged way more than the average price to see the game and Becks wasn't there. They'll get over it... after all they were the people who paid extra to see him in the first place.

If anyone is an idiot it could very well be David' Beckham's handlers.

Pissing off MLS fans, who already LIKE soccer, isn't going to help sell the sport to people who know nothing about it.

If David can shop and dine every frickin' day at the LA hotspots known to be celeb/paparazzi magnets, then he can get his ass on a plane to watch his mates play a few away games.

Fashion Critic said...

I am enjoying this debate.

It is widely believed that Beckham’s ankle swelled up on the flight to Los Angeles due to the cabin pressure so that is why he did not travel.

David has only been to 1 party since arrive at LA his own and a few dinners...the man has to eat....you can not deny him his food. I mean can you imagine Posh cooking...NO. Even she admits to not being a great cook.

With regard to paying to see a player, I attended 3 Brazil international games before I saw Ronaldinho play as he was injured the first two times despite him being billed to play.

Swings and roundabouts

hehe, let them grovel when they see him play, no offence but they ob dont know football if they dont appreciate him, he captained England, won for pain in his last game, dont they follow football? ob not. in their face when he scores them goals ha HA, they're the ones that will be like o i love daivd after that. I want him to come home and play for his country again.

SCOTT E said...

I agree with the person who said that it is unfair to talk crap on american fans....REAL MADRID MADE THE GUY PRACTICE BY HIMSELF!! NO one has EVER treated Becks the way he deserves to be treated. If you read the article on Yahoo.com today it talks about how these fans were charged double the normal prices to see this game, and also how Real Madrid shot up his ankle with before the LaLiga final, and thats why there is so much damage...not the flight. Also, it was Galaxy's idea to keep David home, and not bing him to dallas to even sit on the bench...so the team here IS LOOKING OUT FOR HIM AND HIS HEALTH. Everyone needs to quit hating on American football/soccer fans....a picture of some hicks in texas shouldnt reflect the country as a whole.......Americans dont go around calling all soccer fans Hooligans and rioters, just because a few fans in Europe give it a bad name. Be balanced everyone...remember, we all want to see the same thing here, we wanna see Becks and Football succeed in America, lets lose the negativity!

brit said...

i was'nt saying all american fans are stupid i ment these people trying to get some attetion, we have some idiots here who like to do this kind of stuff for a picture but it dosnt mean everyone in the uk is like it. I guess we are sticking up for our own tho scott e.

SCOTT E said...

Yeah, i wasnt talking about you or anyone directly...persay. I love this blog, but it seems like anytime there is drama Americans, or Galaxy coaches or OUR paparazzi is the one who the finger is being pointed at. All i was saying was that we dont need to be so quick to assign the blame if we dont know the whole story. Like i said before, we all want the same thing....Becks to succeed in America....except whats gonna happen when he has duies for the National team and he has to fly across the atlantic for games...are English fans going to blame his poor performance on Americans because of the travel, and visa versa with the Galaxy fans towards the English? All i know is that He and Victoria obviously want to be here, they have said repeatedly its what THEY want to do, so we all just need to be happy for them and whatever circumstances come up because of his ankle, or traveling or whatever, we need to just not mind it. If they are happy then its good enough for me,

brit said...

yes i agree with u scott e, i think people need to back off him abit hes not a super hero, hes just hero. lol.

jd said...

u know what these stupid people are making the U.S. seem like if we are mean and insulting to others.and yeah okay he's hurt what do they expect u know he can't play like that. anyways and of course they have been winning a couple of games without him playing but i think that know they are actually more inspired to play better and prove that they are a good team. so i support whatever David decides to do cause no matter what he is the BEST.
