I always thought that David Beckham was a class act and my opinion of him has risen even higher after his comments about Eduardo.
'There has been far too much talk about diving,'
'No-one wants to see it and it is disappointing when it happens. But it happens every week and Eduardo is not the first person to have done it.
'The whole thing should be put to bed.'
'Eduardo is a great player. It is not that long ago that he suffered an horrific injury.
'You don't know what was going through his mind. He might have been trying to get out of the way of a tackle so he didn't get injured again.'
Beckham has taken a lot of stick in the past and I've no doubt that he will receive more in the future but nobody can deny that he is a great ambassador for England and football.
People like Wayne Rooney and John Terry could learn a lot from David Beckham. The pair sat in front of the English media and spoke so much shite it was unbelievable.
I pissed my pants at the hypocrisy of John Terry and I cried real tears at Wayne Rooney's attempts to talk down his diving in the past.
Yes, Eduardo went down easy! But hasn't Rooney gone down easily TWICE in the space of a week? I must be bloody blind if he aint!
Beckham has spoke the truth and I praise him for what he has had to say on the situation. He may not be everyone's cup of tea but he is the first English player to come out with something that is very true.
Not like a certain Mr Terry or a Mr Rooney.
The story should be put to bed. If it isn't then Wayne Rooney's diving should get the same coverage. Shamefully it won't be.
Keep it Goonerish...............
