Beckham to AC Milan...WTF?

Thats right folks, it looks like Beckham is heading back to Europe....but only on a loan move. Since the Galaxy are out of the playoffs for like the 3rd year in a row his season is over. Well this move is according to Becks to keep him fit to play for England. I'm loling as I type that. Becks is 33 years old, the last 4 times hes played for England hes come on as a sub and played a total of 29 minutes. News flash to David, you aren't needed on the England team anymore. Look don't get me wrong he is still a good player. But a England national team member he is not. Theo Walcott at the ripe old age of 19 is the new face of the right hand side of England now. He doesn't have Becks vision, or ability to put a ball on a dime, but hes got so much more. The ability to attack players, hes got tons of pace, and when he goes at you hes going to beat you. Hes got good close range passing and general knowledge of the game that is hard to find at that age. And the guy is not afraid to shoot. And why Milan David? That sounds like its being dictated by Posh to me. If it was really about getting in with England he wold be playing in the EPL where the England head coach (Fabio Capello) goes every weekend to watch multiple games to check on how the players are playing. I don't see him missing a entire weekend of where 99.9% of his players are playing in England to fly to Milan to watch Becks play. And wtf is up with AC milan, is the home for old players who don't want to to to the MLS? The average age of team is like 34 I think...thats no lie. Maldini is fucking 40. Dida, Maldidn, Nesta, Zambrotta, Ambrosini, Emerson, Gattuso, Seedorf, Inzaghi, Sheva, all over 30 and most 33+.

i haven't seen a soccer game, or really followed the international scene at all since the last world cup, so i can't comment too much. i can say that last time i saw england playing beckham was the only player, and i mean ONLY player on england (offensively anyway) that showed me anything worthy of being a world cup player. but i would imagine now hes pretty washed up, dont know what his mls career has been like (or if he has even played)

my only real comment i will make on this is that after thinking about it, i would have to say england may be one of the most overrated teams in sports. like i said, i dont really watch much, but england always is supposed to have these amazing players but i never see it. in my lifetime of watching soccer, i cannot think of one "big game" england has ever won. and beyond that, everytime i watch them they are one of the most boring teams ever. i dont understand how a country that is supposed to be so supreme at soccer cannot generate a legitimate scorer. case in point, wayne rooney is (or was, not sure what hes viewed as anymore) as this awesome talent, when really he was garbage if you compare him to other teams top offensive threats.

Prime, I would say up to the last few months you were 100% correct. England in the world cup sucked. And Becks was their only legit threat. But they've got a new coach and he has really turned the team around, they are still not great, and nowhere near as good as they should be (or think they are). But he has made some vast improvements. Hes not into attacking but they are grinding out results. So in that regard they are still very boring but at least they are winning. Rooney according the english media is "the best player in the world right now". Basically he had playing like shit and Sir Alex benched him and now he is "reborn". Whats Boski say on that I don't believe it. He is playing good, but hes not like unbelievable, and he always does this, hes a streaky player. He'll get hot for a while and then he'll go back cold again.

i'd take several players over rooney. messi, kaka, and c. ronaldo for starters.

and i agree with prime. england didn't even make euro 2008. boski, how are they making vast improvements? i'm going to stick with the mind set "you suck until you can prove otherwise"

Well they are first in their World Cup Qualifing group, having won all 4 games so far (2-0, 4-1, 5-1, 3-1). Keep in mind they aren't in the strongest group but still.
