David Beckham: I'm a Bad Armchair Fan

David Beckham: I'm a Bad Armchair Fan

David Beckham has vented his frustrations over the injuries both of his legs have suffered via his official blog:

“Last week was an incredibly frustrating one as far as football goes. To get back to fitness and then get injured again so quickly is very disappointing, but I’ll be doing everything I can to get back playing as soon as possible. I’ve started the rehabilitation process and I’m working hard to get back on the pitch again.

Of course, I’m disappointed that I won’t be joining up with the England squad, but I wish the lads all the best for the qualifiers.

There’s definitely enough quality to get the right results against Israel and Russia, and although I’m the first to admit I’m not the best armchair fan I’ll be cheering on the lads from home.

Anyway, that’s all for now. I’ll keep you posted on how things go with my recovery.

Speak to you soon

David

Soccer, Becks. You play soccer now!

    Football, Jared. Football. We live it, breathe it. Becks would never call it anything else. It’s sad that he is injured – I hope he does recover soon. I’ve never been a Becks and Posh fan but it does look that England needs all the help it can get.

    Go Liverpool!!!

    “It’s F*UCKIN FOOTBALL…america made up the word soccer and nobody else in the world calls it that”

    Actually Soccer was a term coined in England – around 1886 or so – check it out – derived in a similar fashion to rugger, brekkers, and a host of “Englishisms”…..don’t give Americans the credit for inventing a word like that – they tend to go in for works like skank and ho, and replacing the letter “C” with a “K” for ease of comprehension.

  • rana

    Get well soon beck !! Fuck soon .. NOW !
    anw its soccer .. khalas in the states they call it soccer and england football..its the same !

    goo liverpool !

  • jrfan

    I love that pic! Poor Becks has had such a rough time. I hope he never says soccer!

    Ha ya, we didn’t invent the term. I heard it was coined by a brit who had a hard time distinguishing rugby from English football. #14, thanks for narrowing the intelligence of the entire country of America to a few celebrities and hicks. >_

  • Lica

    MORE PIC PLEASE JARED, LOVE U BECKS! :D

    “It’s F*UCKIN FOOTBALL…america made up the word soccer and nobody else in the world calls it that….what america calls football should be called soccer instead cuz they do less kicking of the ball than anything else!!!! FOOTBALL FOREVER!!!!!”

    YES, ITS FOOTBALL…AND PLEEEEASE….AMERICA IS A CONTINENT…IN THE REST OF AMERICA IT IS CALL FOOTBALL, FUTBOL OR FUTEBOL. THE NAME OF THE COUNTRY THAT CALL “SOCCER” IS UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! BUT AS GOOD MEGALOMANIAC AS THEY ARE THEY CALL THEMSELVES JUST AMERICA. MAYBE THIS THE CAUSE THAT POOR LITTLE AMERICANS (THE USA ONES) HAVE NO CLUE WHERE THEIR COUNTRY IS ON THE MAP. THEY LOOK FOR AMERICA AND REALIZE THAT IS A CONTINENT.HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHA

  • caro

    I’m with you kate!!! hahahahaha

  • Bella

    Soccer and football are the same thing. What’s played in England was originally called association football (can’t remember why) and the nickname “soccer” was shortened from asSOCiation. So its still all football in the end!

  • xsleekx

    soccer, football it mean the same thing, who cares. people are so uptight on here. David is such a football phenomenon and so gorgeous. He’l be back and showing us what he does best soon

  • Jbo

    These Beckham sluts are a WASTE of America’s money!

  • Jbo

    Oh, and their kids are ugly w/pig noses and poop brown eyes – just like their mom… Looks like they only got their dad’s hair color and that’s IT! Poor ugly little rich kids…

    Yeah, that’s right I’m on the rag and I don’t give a fuck who I offend today!

  • Emma

  • mariya

    gett well david..england needs u & the galaxy

  • Daniel

    Beckham is a waste of money. the man is past his prime and not nearly as good as he once was. Should he be a fall of famer? maybe someday. should he be respected? sure. should he play? might have well he’s a decent player. Should he be the biggest guy in the leauge and media MVP? NO!

    There are a lot of talented players who’d kill to have Beckham’s salary. lots of guys who deserve it. Beckham’s lucky he only got injured. some player is going to try to make his name as “the man who ended Beckham’s career”. and there are much worse things then a knee injury.

  • Lops723

    First of all, the ignorance on this post is just out of control. Get an education. Second of all, we from the US call the game “soccer”, the english call it “football”… Neither is right, neither is wrong, so shut the f*ck up about it. If you idiots continue, then let’s go all the way… “French fries” are no longer, now it’s “chips”… “Guys”, nope, now it’s “Blokes”… Can’t call anyone an “ass” anymore, now it’s “arse”! I could go on all day, it is not the same country. We would expect an italian player who came here to say “Calcio”.

    Lastly, Beckham is not famous for being a great player, if you think that, you don’t know anything about the game, or have never seen him play a whole game. He is good at accurate crosses (passes) that is it. He is as big as he is for #1 being good looking, #2 marrying a spice girl, #3 wh*ring himself & his family out to the media… He’ll never be huge in America & neither will SOCCER!

  • hehe

    the U.S. is so weird, the rest of the world calls it football only the US calls it soccer. Also, I wonder why the US male football/soccer team never get that far during any World Cup.

  • DANGASindaHAUS

    Haha… that soccer comment is funny, jared!

    Go BECKS and get well soon! England needs you. :D

  • Fuller

    The Galaxy are idiots for paying this overrated old soccer player all that money. They could have spent all those $$ on better players than him.

    He’s not even gone to LA for the football, for this Beckham family its all about being celebrities. They are media wh*res.

    If he was ugly no one would even bother with him, and he certianly wouldn’t even get a mention in the footballing world.

  • Faker

    Davey needs to STFU. Who the f*ck are the beckhams trying to kid? So he’s supposed to be injured, but that didn’t stop him and his fugly wife launching their new perfume last night! We are not idiots Becks. You might be able to fool people in England, but not here!

  • lops723

    HAHA! I have add in with the person who said the kids are ugly with pig noses like their mother!!! COULDN’T BE MORE TRUE!!! OMG, I was dying laughing. :) They are both famous for being famous

  • Ryan

    Becks! Get well soon man.. and #5 obviously doenst know what they’re talking about. He wants to play really bad, he and no other athlete can control getting injured.

  • Ellie

    I can’t believe the comment you made about Romeo being ugly. For a start, what the hell is wrong with brown eyes? Many of the people regarded beautiful/handsome in this world have brown eyes. Catherine Zeta Jones, Beyonce, Johnny Depp, Julia Roberts, Halle Berry, Pete Wentz, Ashton Kutcher, Orlando Bloom.
    So yeah, that was a really idiotic comment. Romeo clearly has an attractive face and so do Cruz and Brooklyn, regardless of whether they have upturned noses or not.
