JTrader............ what puzzles me is from being a really good teenager with a great shot he then withered ...... but became a free-kick expert.... How the hell did they manage to make him such a HUGE business... ??

Amazing........... good luck to the bloke... but it's his managers/agents I really admire!
After all it didn't just happen....

...........it snowballed............


Although he can expect to earn $50m * 5 years, it seems LA Galaxy are only paying him $10m PA. $100m of the $250m over 5 years comes in the form of existing endorsements. A further potental $20m PA comes from his split from shirt sales and LA Galaxy profits.

Yep, but in 10 years time it'll be David who? Whereas Hurst, the Moores, Charlton and the other boys of '66 will be remembered forever, since they actually won something. Money can't buy you that !

There was a great interview on the radio last night that went something like this:
Serious Radio 4 Interviewer: Are you looking forward to the Beckhams arriving in Los Angeles?
Hello Magazine's LA Correspondent (yes, really): Er, yes - but that's mainly because I work for a British magazine.
Interviewer: So the American paparazzi won't be following Victoria whenever she pops out to the shops?
Hello person: I doubt it. We have real celebrities over here, remember.

Having said that Jack .....and everyone else CNN are now as I type screening a press conference LIVE to announce the "Beckham deal" .... it seems a bit surreal!

yes.. Beckham is only good for selling t-shirts... useless footballer

Not fair. Beckham made Manchester United, Real Madrid and England. They are facts. If he hadn't been taken out of England and Capello (overrated manager) hadn't sidelined him in Madrid, he wouldn't be going to the States. The women love him and he does sell a lot of shirts, though!!

consistency is the name of the game... any game.

he's a useless footballer... no one wants him (i.e clubs which play properly)

hopefully he might be a good trainer... that we'll see.

Come on guys - he's showed (in the past) he can play football even though he's now in decline... He's now a full time businessman is that so bad ? ;)

With that income he's more than a businessman--he's an industry. If he is in decline, he recognises the fact!
