View Full Version : David Beckham - is he a fake?

So the Beckhams have gone to America to seek even more attention.

When I see David Beckham talking on the TV he always seems like an ordinary, nice, down to earth bloke who is a bit shy. I can imagine him just wanting to play footie and then go home for a few beers and to play with his kids and get away from the limelight. Judging by his actions lately though this image I have of him appears to be false.

Is he really just an ordinary bloke who happens to be famous, or is he an attention-seeker who is just pretending to be like that?

No, he's a bloke with a good agent and a pushy, talentless wife

But is he really as "ordinary" as he makes out? It takes a lot of effort to be in the public eye, so if he didn't like it surely he would put his foot down. Traditionally, Victoria has been seen as the pushy one, like you say, and the one who wants the attention, but I think he wants it just as much.

Tom Cruise is his acting coach, and David is apparently taking acting lessons very seriously ...

I think Dave used to be a normal down to earth guy, but a lot of money and his overbearing wife have ensured that he has become a media machine.

Whenever I see your name it creases me up! :p

I think he can't be what he seems because it's hard work being a media whore. I think maybe when he met Victoria he recognised a fellow attention seeker and went for her. I think he likes people to think it's her being like that and that he's just following her, but he's a sneaky one.

:D

You could be right, but I don't see Dave as having the cerebral capacity to be that much in control.

I think they genuinely used to be in love but now it's just a convenience for them both.

I think it was love too, neither of them were contrived enough to get together for any other reason.

That's right, he hasn't got the brains for it. She has though so he can just pretend it's all her idea. I think they both want the same thing, so it works for them. Couple of media tarts IMO.

i don't think he's as stupid as everyone makes out, to have such a huge franchise he must be much more intelligent than he makes out

He's probably not stupid, but he hasn't got the energy and drive to be a celebrity on his own. He wants to be though and she's got the energy, that's why they work so well together.

What really gets me is that he comes to America after being offered....what? 150 million? And then he can't play cause his poor little ankle is bothering him? Give me a break!!!

But do the Americans even know he is a footballer. They probably expect him to put on some padding and have him playing their football.

The septics know that he's not a footballer, he's a SOCCER player

The fact that in the US it comes well below baseball, football, basketball and ice hockey is neither here nor there.

There may even come a time when the average American knows the rules of soccer, but that day is a long way off!

As for the offside rule, forget it!:D
Millions of soccer loving Brits don't understand that, yet!

If a player passes the ball forward there must be two defenders between the goal and the person he is passing the ball too at the time the ball is passed forward, otherwise that person is offside.

OK, I was late but I was distracted by Gonzo's antics elsewhere.

I put "too" instead of "to" as well. :eek:

I was in a hurry, that's my excuse. :D

It's two defenders other than the goalie.

It's actually two players of the defending team regardless of the position they play in.
Can tyou see the problem otherwise.. he didn't count 'cos he's an attacker:rolleyes:

He probably has a good financial adviser, and yes, he apparently picked a right man or woman. That doesn't mean that he's intelligent though ...
