Beckham may not be a great player anymore. However, nobody cares about Marbs leaving here and they probably wont care too much about him when he arrives there. He'll probably be the best player in the league he goes to, but he's not a bigtime media star.


Beckham is still a bigtime DRAW and that's why he's getting paid. He's a good player now (probably, I don't know), but he's a star. If its because of Fashion or his wife, doesn't matter I may even watch him play. Beckham coming here would have a better comparison with like Shaq or in football Vick (prior to these alligations, he may have been one of the biggest stars in the sport, but certainly not the best) going overseas to help their sports. They may not be the best player in their leagues, but they draw the fans. Marbury is not that type of player

again i say, there's no way he'd come close to football superstars, but he'd also be the most marketable player in euro basketball.

what i want to say, beckham comparison is silly in marketing terms. but it's also downright idiotic to say no one would want steph in europe.

Wow, you are full of bollocks. David Beckham had a great season on one of the best clubs in europe and they won the championship. When was the last time marbury did something similar to that? I am tired of all this beckham hate. He is a severely underrated player.

HOW IS MARBURY BETTER THAN BECKHAM IN THEIR RESPECTIVE SPORT RIGHT NOW IF BECKHAM JUST PLAYED A GREAT SEASON ON ONE OF THE BEST CLUBS IN EUROPE?

HOW DOES THAT MAKE ANY SENSE? It doesnt.

beckham was one of best players in the world in his earlier man utd days. he is not anymore. he's just hype, more of a fashion icon than an athletic one.

vast majority of his fans are female now :

Dood, you are full of CRAP. Beckham is probably a top 5 right midfielder. How can you say beckham is overrated when he was playing very well for real madrid (top club) and made it back on the england squad and was making terrific crosses/free kicks against brazil.

How is beckham just hype? How is starting for the england squad hype? How is playing on two of the best clubs ever in europe hype?

See Beckham's success with Real Madrid. Or England. Not much of a winner there...

In honesty, they're both overrated and overpaid athletes, not amongst the very best in their sport

Oh ya, and real madrid won this past season just so you know. No success right? Real madrid wanted him to stay to but he kept to his commitment with galaxy.

They are not overrated and not overpaid. Once again, how is a player that just got off playing (very well at that) with one of the best squads in the world overrated?

And this is a very reasonable statement. He is still a great player and MLS is glad to have him. Real Madrid even wanted him to stay because he was playing so well.

sorry, but there is just NO WAY he is top 5 right midfielder right now. he was probably the best one in the world for a period, but that's past. what did he exactly do for his 5 or so years in real madrid? they won't cry for him, at least not for his accomplishments on the pitch. and by "just hype" i mean that everyone stopped looking at him as football player quite a while ago. don't get me wrong, i'm not saying that he's bad, crap or something. but no way he's even top 10 right midfield in world right now.

even at his peak, he was extremely one dimensional.

he's global marketing and fashion icon now much more than football one. and that's why he's coming to usa, make no mistake.

he is because he earns more much money and enjoys more fame than any other footballer, although he's not even in the top 25 IMO.
he is because he failed at the big tournaments with the NT
he is because he was dropped from the NT after 3 disappointing seasons
he is because he is a nice winger who can make beautiful crosses and is a good fk specialist, but that's about it

he only played well for 3 months in the last 3-4 years

you're the one full of crap
