This morning, via email:
I just saw your article re: Red Bulls v. LA Galaxy game.
When David Beckham was good he was playing for Manchester. No great soccer players come to play for MSL. How many great NBA players go to Europe to play basketball? I agree with you, that he is a skilled player, but does not have the desire to play the game with passion anymore!
David Beckham is just a celebrity. When have seen him, since he moved here, more in tuxedo, than in Galaxy uniform. He was never a soccer superstar. Never was No. 1 in Europe. He's coach (Gullit) was a much better player.
If LA Galaxy fans think that Beckham will bring them the title they are dreaming.
