Beckham is a Sentimental Loss for England, Not A Real One

Ollie Kay of the UK Times has it about right: David Beckham is a sentimental loss to the Cup (and our cover!) but not to the team. He likely would have come in only at the end of games in the hopes of taking an important free kick or even a penalty kick (which given his history, he might well have missed). Life marches on.

  1. I certainly agree with you on this one. Whilst Beckham has proven himself a truly great player in the past, he's not the player he once was and his presence on the England squad does more harm than good.
