LA Galaxy thrashed as David Beckham watches on


19th, July 2007


David Beckham watched new side LA Galaxy suffer a 3-0 home defeat to Mexican side Tigres. The Sun claims the Galaxy looked like a Sunday morning pub team. The paper also scoffed at an attendance of just 2,000 and that the hardcore supporters of the LA Riot Squad we have heard so much about numbered 14. Beckham sat in an executive box – ice pack on ankle – studying pen-pics of his new team-mates as Galaxy were torn apart. Alexi Lalas said: “David was looking at what he has to work with and finding out the good, bad and ugly. Obviously it was not a good example of the quality we have.”

    That was painful in many ways- one being the incessant repeating of Gol! like it was a test of the emergency Broadcast System.
    Beckham probably thought the same thing!

    5:30 PM on a Tuesday is the worst time for a soccer game in Los Angeles. It takes over an hour to drive 30 miles. That’s why no one showed up. We also knew Beckham wasn’t going to play, and no one gives a shit about Tigres. Combine that with rip-off ticket prices ($60 for cheap seats) and parking ($20), and you got low attendance.

    Did someone score?

  4. Beckham all ready making a Los Angeles impact, and the natives won’t be happy (from eTrueSports):
    David Beckham, worried about LA traffic, has made a tender offer for the Pacific Coast Highway with the intention of taking the famed road private. “It will be like a big driveway,” explained wife Posh Spice.
