  1. sweeper says:

    Very nice collage, and accurate, no more than four of those photos actually portrayed him in uniform, on the pitch. Maybe there should have been a photo of a BA airplane, to represent aggravating his injury when traveling back to the motherland, which disabled his ability to actually play more stateside.:)

  2. I wanted to see Beckham played for Chivas USA, would be one of the most interesting fantasies never realised in the history of futebol.
