Merchandise Or Better Player?

Football had become another thing.

Football personality is more considered than the football they play.

Are u talking about David Beckham alone or Football in general?

As at the moment David Beckham is playing well enough and any change of role by a new coach will probably affect their future sponsorship package

Are you telling me that Beckham must REMAIN England captain whether he is rubbish or not just because of business.

This line from the article sounds like a conflict of interest to me

"It would also be a blow to Beckham’s management company 19, who have taken over the running of the entire England squad’s commercial contracts."

Anyway, the fact remains that if "Spice boy" did not have a deadly right foot no one would want him. The average soccer fan still knows a good player when they see one, and you have to be a good player to the average fan before your marketability to everyone else rises. I also doubt the sponsors would want him as captain if his performance and popularity drop, he would only harm their brand image in that situation.

Frankly I think only Gerrard can rival Becks for the captain band and when England gets into trouble its still Becks they look for to create something.

Very soon they'll start hiring "sexy" players only. I think that's what's wrong with the world -- The Sex Revolution.

It's the same thing in the movie industry -- people who act are picked for good looks not skills. Someone like Whoopi Goldberg wouldn't be where she is today and for football you wouldn't have people like Taribo West.
