I'll never support a team with Lampard on it until he proves that he can play for England and NOT choke... lol.

Barcelona breaks the record of points for half a season on the spanish league beating 5 - 0 Deportivo who was playing pretty well. Only loss for Barsa was in the first game in the season . 50 points of 57 posibles. Etoo, Messi and Henry together have more goals than the total of any team in the rest of the league. 45.

La liga is over.

Good for MLS. He didn't really increase attendance and really hurt the Galaxy. He's really been a collosal failure in LA and for MLS and if MLS can get out of that ridiculous contract, all the better.

You would assume that the LA Galaxy are pleased with the change of events. Apparently they have some 1$ ticket promotion, so clearly times are tough in Lala land when it comes to the beautiful game.

It'll be interesting to see what happens.

Personally, i'll be more happy than sad. I always thought Beckham in the MLS was too much of a sideshow, and clearly it distracted the attention away from the product on the field.

This league needs to keep it real. and not expect to saved by the likes of David Beckham.

David Beckham is a good player, but he is not a game changer. He needs to be surroended by great players to be effective. As much as I hate David beckham "The Celebrity", I love Beckham the "Player", he is a hard worker that loves the game.

Another old player that will end up his career in Milan...


BTW, when is the Champions back. I cant wait. No Real Madrid - Liverpool game for me. Cheapest seat is 160 euros. Im not paying that.

Merchandise sure, but has it had any significant effect on the fan base and growing the fan base? I'd argue no.
