I like both Posh and Becks. Yep even Posh. They've made it together through many years as a married couple, have four lovely kids and I love reading about them.
Well done David Beckham

The poor guy must be jealous of his school friends who went off to work in a kibbutz for free for a few months.

Whatever people think about him this is an awesome gesture. I know he can afford it but so can plenty of others.

I like him, and it's a great gesture. I read this part of his quote to mean that PSG/players do this often. Even better.

He added: "It's something the guys [PSG management] do, but obviously it's a very good figure..."

As apparently he's donating his wages to charity, no, it would seem that money doesn't really come into it.

Hearing the curse... May the fleas of a thousand camels infest the crotch of the person who annoyed you and their arms be too short to scratch.....
