Foregone conclusion, so long as we get Ranaldinio i dont mind so much. I guess that bit would be part of the deal, 'you dont sign him and you can have Beckham'. Was suprised by the price, reputed to be 22m, a bargain I think.

Guess i wont be watching him in Philadelphia Aug 3rd

Rob

PS. You want to come up and stay for July 4th ?

As long as it gets rid of that press loving ,self serving,attention seeking and only one pose position cow, I for one will wish poser Posh good riddance and goodbye hopefully for good.

As for that "WORLD CLASS" Beckham, when he gets in with the likes of Zidan, you'll see how average he really is - just look at "world class" Macmanaman - sat on the bench with the exception of 3 games all season.

Cheers - Mark

Good. Maybe I wont have to hear about it in all the papers and TV everyday. Dont get me wrong, I have nothing against him or his wife. But I draw the line when my American sports websites start posting story's on where he is going and for how much! Is nothing pure anymore? LOL.

I bet 10 pounds that he learns to speak spanish before he understands what the hell is coming out of McManamans mouth!

If I get a job yes, we won't commit ourselfes to anything until I get a job as we have started into the savings and don't know how long I will be out of work. Conservative estimates are it takes up to 9 months to get a job in Wilmington!

I opened up the Wilmington Star News this morning and on page 5 of the sports section is a half page article about Beckham being transfered! Who knew!

Found this on a BBC.com link

In time, of course, a man with a mind like Becks will be fluent in Spanish. In the meantime, here's enough to get him started...

"Can you tell me if there is a Harvey Nichols round here?"
"¿Me puede decir si hay un Harvey Nichols por aquí?"

"250 Euros for a t-shirt? Yes, that's fine."
"250 Euros por una camiseta? Me la llevo."

"Excuse me, Mr Del Bosque - can I play in the middle?"
"¿Perdone, Señor del Bosque - puedo jugar en el centro?"

"I meant with the first team, not the reserves."
"Quería decir con el primer equipo, no los suplentes."

"What do you mean, 'Raul'? Don't you have surname?"
"¿Cómo dices, "Raul"? No tienes apellido?"

"Hey Roberto/Luis/Zinedine - isn't it my turn to take a free-kick?"
"¿Oye Roberto/Luís/Zinedine - no es mi turno para tirar la falta?"

"I would like a haircut that makes me look like Jeff Bridges in 'The Fisher King', please."
"Quiero un corte que me haga parecer a Jeff Bridges en 'El Rey Pescador', por favor."

"I'm not sure. I'd better ask my wife."
"No estoy seguro. Tendré que preguntarle a mi mujer."

"My wife was a member of the Spice Girls."
"Mi mujer era una Spice Girl."

"No, the Macarena was by Los Del Rio."
"No, la Macarena fue de Los Del Rio."

"No, the Ketchup Song was by Las Ketchup."
"No, Asereje fue hecha por Las Ketchup."
