David Beckham Blogs From Airport

Soccer star David Beckham has down time to blog at the airport, too! Check out his latest entry:

“Hi,

Well, I’m sure you know but unfortunately, England won’t be at Euro 2008. It’s very disappointing for everyone, the players and the fans, and the result hurts, but Croatia deserved their win on the night and I wish them well.

I would still like to play for England in future games. I said at the start of my career I’ll always want to play for my country and I’d never retire from playing for my country, so I’d like to continue as long as possible.

I went along to The David Beckham Academy in Greenwich yesterday to help celebrate the 2nd anniversary of the London venue. I can’t believe it’s been two years already! So far we’ve had 40,000 children through the doors of the Academy, 23,000 of those free of charge via the Day Visit programme. It’s always amazing to go along and see the children really enjoying the sport I love, and yesterday was no exception. The year 4 and 5 children were having a great time learning new techniques and skills and of course enjoying how to work as part of a team. I’d also like to say how proud and thankful I am to the coaches and staff for all their hard work.

I was interviewed by Michael Parkinson last night for his final ever show, which airs on the 15th December. He’s a wonderful person and, sadly, it marks the end of an era for one of the UK’s most loved broadcasters. He’ll definitely be missed.

I’m writing this blog at the airport as I’m flying out to Australia today – stopping over in China along the way – to meet up with the Galaxy squad for an exhibition game in Sydney before we go on to New Zealand for another match. It’ll be good to see the team again and meet Ruud Gullit*, the new Galaxy head coach. I have to catch my plane now, but I’ll let you know how the matches go.

Bye for now

David

*Gullit is a Dutch soccer coach and took over for Frank Yallop as Head Coach of the Los Angeles Galaxy.

    Can’t wait to see him on Parky! He’s right – nobody even comes close to Parkinson in the UK.

    Does he have a personal blogger that blogs for him? lol

  • Orange Clockwork

    Why is he still relevant?

  • Londoner

    OK PEOPLE – NOW I HAVE LIVED AND GROWN UP IN THE BECKHAM ERA HERE IN THE UK – AND I WOULD LIKE FOR ALL OF YOU TO KNOW THAT DAVID BECKHAM AND HIS WIFE CAN NOT SPELL LET ALONE SPEAK OR WRITE PROPERLY.

    IF ANY OF YOU ACTUALLY BELIEVE DAVID/VICTORIA WRITE THEIR OWN “BLOGS” YOU ARE IN SERIOUS NEED OF A MENTAL CHECK.

    I GET SO F-ING ANNOYED BY THESE CELEBRITIES AND THEIR STUPID BLOGS – GO GOOGLE BECKHAM QUOTES AND YOU WILL SEE WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT.

    COME ON USA – DON’T BELIEVE THIS CRAP – HE IS NOT WRITING THESE BLOGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • smooth

    I don’t care if he writes it or not. It’s not important: a like football,good football and good people in football: it’s all about Becks. He is just good talented guy.
    I wish him and his team everything best.

  • terryunderwood

    cute

    PLZ POST THE JONAS BROTHERS ON GMA THIS MORNING I MISSED IT

  • Beckham????? who

    to Londoner
    I agree with you

  • yazie

    Wow, He is not aging gracefully. I think he is going to look like Gordon Ramsey when he is older with his sharpae looking face. LOL

  • Mrs beckham

    He is not that clever academically we all know that LONDONER and he does not pretend to be.

    Who gives a crap if he actually writes it, I believe the sentiments are from him. I don’t care who writes it

  • grana

    He’s not Britains Cleverest man but he can string a few setences together and create a blog. If he’s got where he is today being as thick as people say he is, then good on him!

  • Kibbell

    Rudd Gullit, the new Galaxy head coach, isn’t only a Dutch coach, he also used to be one of soccer’s great stars.

  • Londoner

    YOU DON’T CARE IF HE WRITES THEM OF NOT?! UMMM…OK THEN, SO THAT MEANS YOU DON’T CARE ABOUT BEING LIED TO.

    I THINK IT IS SICK THAT THEY PRETEND TO WRITE THESE BLOGS BECAUSE THEY THINK WE ARE ALL STUPID ENOUGH TO THINK THAT BECKHAM IS SITTING AT AN AIRPORT WITH HIS LAPTOP TAKING HIS TIME TO WRITE TO US BECAUSE HE CARES SO MUCH ABOUT US….?!?!?!

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME? IF YOU WANT TO BELIEVE THAT THEN YOU ARE SAD.

    THEY SHOULD JUST SAY THAT THEIR REPS ARE WRITING THE BLOGS, WHY LIE?

    THEY MAKE MONEY BECAUSE ITS SOCIETY THAT DETERMINES THEIR WEALTH/VALUE…ITS ONE THING TO MAKE MONEY OFF OF FANS, ITS ANOTHER TO EXPLOIT IT.

  • grana

    Londoner you clearly care a whole damn lot considering you obviously dont like the guy.

    Hi Londoner,I’ve heard that same thing be4,about what you posted. Question, can you give us Americans some info on what was the news about them as people, when they lived in England. Thanks in advance.

  • Wayne Geddes p.land

    David has a non-masculine voice. I think he is gay in real life.

  • grana

    heidi, people generally like David Beckham – football fans appriciate a good player with a passion for playing when they see one. The majority of people aren’t too keen of Victoria but having said that, they are a very popular celebrity couple in the UK.

    And Wayne Geddes p.land – most people have heard him speaking like that for over a decade and it hasnt really caused him a problem. And gay in real ife? This is real life.

  • deny

    Heidi – People in the UK got sick to death of both David Beckham and his awful wife. He is a poser as well as his wife. He just wanted to reach the 100 caps for playing for England so that he could get a knighthood so he ould be Sir David Beckham and Posh Lady Victoria Beckham, when it was proposed to give him this title in the UK before he went to LA there was a LOT OF ARGUMENTS AS TO WHY HE SHOULD NOT BE GIVEN A KNIGHTHOOD. HE NEVER WON ANY TROPHIES FOR ENGLAND WHEN HE WAS CAPTAIN, THE ONLY TROPHY HE WON WAS WITH MANCHESTER UNITED AND MADRID. HE IS MOSTLY KNOWN FOR HIS MODELLING OF UNDERWEAR AFTERSHAVE ETC. MONEY MAD HIM AND HIS WIFE
