Default David Beckham Thread

Apparantly Beckham is close to joining Milan on loan for around four months in January.

I think its about selling shirts and filling empty seats at the San Siro. Don't think he will add a great deal to the team. Although he has a good work ethic, and obviously a good pass/cross.
Just think that midfield is not a priority area of the side at the mo, think the defence needs work much more urgently and this is a publicity stunt. And I can imagine Galliani claiming another 'victory' in the transfer market. "Another champion joins Milan" blah blah blah...

Wot do you guys think?

Good for marketing purposes but also for the contribute Beckham can give us.
Ancelotti likes him and will surely play him and then who knows...
He's not costing us anything and will sell many shirts + get a lot of attention.
Sky sport might even show Milan matches from january...who knows.
It's all good in my opinion, especially for the fact that he chose us and not Sfinter or Barca.

Were Inter and Barca even interested Pupone?

Next thing I'll read is Ronaldo - the fat tranny lover, just to clarify - making his return. Pathetic, like there's no other options who would better our FOOTBALL rather than jersey sales. The management have lost it.

Let the epic fail begin


HE CHOSE MILAN
10/22/2008 1:21:00 PM
If 65,000 spectators go to watch the match against Sampdoria, it means that people like Milan. And the arrival of David Beckham will bring more fans rather than fewer ones. Here is Galliani and Ancelotti.





David Beckham was born in London on May 2nd 1975. English national team, currently plays for Los Angeles Galaxy, team of the Major League Soccer. Second in the Golden Ball award of 1999 and in the FIFA World Player 1999 and 2001. He's also one of the most famous and affirmed players in the world. Inserted by Pele in the FIFA 100, the list of the best players ever. In 2007 he ended up being in the list of the most influential celebrities in the world of Forbes, whereas the Time will place him in the Time 100 Heroes & Icons. Beckham is also one of the few English players to have played 100 games with the shirt of his national team of whom he was a captain for 58 games, from November 15th 2000 up to July 2nd 2006.

This is what Adriano Galliani said about him this morning at the Malpensa airport: "Will he arrive? Yes, I think so. He will stay at Milan on loan for some month, we are talking about it with his agent. We shall register him for some months and then he will leave. Beckham has chosen Milan. Our team is very competitive and will remain so, but Beckham is something different and intriguing. Milan is not collecting cards, Milan is very proud of the policy it has. We are the only club going against the current: the people go to the stadium to watch Milan. It's not a coincidence that 65,000 people go to watch Milan-Sampdoria. If the 65,000 go to the stadium, it means that Milan is a product which they like. Beckham will most likely bring more fans rather than fewer ones to the stadium."

And this is what Carlo Ancelotti said about David Beckham: "For me it will be a pleasure. Beckham is a serious athlete, a great professional. If he will be available for four months with us, we will be very happy. If he will be available for Milan, he will evidently be both for Italy and Europe."

Mourihno and Guardiola would have probably told him to fuck off right there on the spot.

Galliani said that chapter wasn't closed. So I have reason to be VERY afraid.

I don't think it is right to compare these two.

Beckham wouldn't cost a cent (as far as it seems at the moment). He sells more, he works much harder in training, he doesn't turn up for training sessions drunk, he doesn't hook up with chicks-with-dicks and complain of non-existent injuries just to play the victim.

Capello dropped Beckham in Real Madrid, but Beckham didn't use the media to voice his anger, he just kept quiet, worked hard to impress Capello. In the end, even Capello publicly admitted he made a mistake dropping Beckham. Yes, the same Capello who asked FattyFagnaldo if he was ashamed to be that obese and quickly off-loaded him before leading that bunch to an unlikely league title.

I agree that Beckham isn't the most ideal signing, but surely much better than keeping/re-signing FattyFagnaldo. That for sure is a FACT.
