    David Beckham Retires

    [​IMG]

    George Best on David Beckham
    "He cannot kick with his left foot, he cannot head a ball, he cannot tackle and he doesn't score many goals. Apart from that he's all right."

    Thank goodness he quit arguably the most overrated footballer in history?

    He moved to US only for money, plus it's already time for him to retire.

    The most relevant part for Internet Marketers is....

    "His achievements on the field and smart branding by his camp and the shoe company
    Adidas made him an icon of his generation and a household name everywhere the game is played".


    the perfect combination of a decent crosser of a ball at distance,
    and huge marketing effort, both in terms of Public Relations and brand association,
    has in my opinion resulted in his success....
    nothing to do with the fact that the talentless wife of his could bring him down,
    so all in all, I am glad he is gone, gone, gone with the wind.

    but we should all take note of the prefect Marketing Machine that drove "Brand Beckham" for years.

    He didn't die mate, just retired. So he IS a man with class, not a very bright bloke tho. Remember all those "stupid" jokes :)

    His free kicks & corner kicks were awesome. I wouldn't call him overrated. His luck didn't click in America, and that does not prove anything. Best of luck Mr. Beckham :)
