Comments on: Baffled by Beckham Keepin' static like wool fabric since 2006 Wed, 08 Oct 2014 14:33:23 +0000 hourly 1 By: Neil Sun, 05 Aug 2007 23:43:42 +0000 Er, I think you’ll find it was 1994 when you hosted the World Cup. Although pretending that it didn’t exist was almost a viable strategy for those of us whose countries failed to qualify. That or pretending to be Irish.

Mind you, you’re welcome to the Beckham circus. Beckham is a very good player, fairly talented, but wouldn’t bother the very top echelon of players, the likes of Moore, Beckenbauer, Zidane, Pele. Maradona (etc and so on – Beckham would IMHO be very lucky to make the top 20). He is very hard working though. It’s the anorexic fame-whore he’s married to that’s the problem.
