Americans to Boo Beckham

11 Mar

MLS Earthquakes Galaxy Soccer

USA soccer boss, Alexi Lalas, announced that David Beckham will be booed on his return to LA Galaxy. This is an important moment of maturation for American soccer. It proves the fans at the Galaxy believe that their club is bigger than “the man.” Many Galaxy fans don’t want Becks back. His slow play is much more suited for the snail’s pace of Italian football. Not that American soccer is fast but it is played in a more open style than the fossilised Calcio. Like most people his age, Beckham is slowing down. It’s little surprise that he wants to lounge around on the field in fashionable Milan. The freeway lane changes of Los Angeles are too much for old Becks. Galaxy fans: boo him until he goes away. American soccer no longer needs a slow giant to shake it awake.

    Ah ah ah

    Italian soccer is slower than american soccer? Oh my God. Milan soccer can be slow because there are too many old players , but italian soccer IS NOT slow.

    Beckham will be expecting it. I think that’s fair to say. Top site by the way. I really enjoy reading it.

    Would you be able to email me when you get the chance? I would like to run something by you.

    Thanks a lot,

    Thomas

    You can’t say playing in the MLS is harder than Seria A, that’s rediculous. The MLS is still a retirement home for European players seeing out the ends of their careers. Galaxy fans can boo him all they like, but it won’t change the fact that if he wants to stay in with a chance of playing for England next summer he’s going to need to play top flight football in Europe.
