Just watched a UKTV documentary on Becks and it followed him from being left out of the England team then when he was recalled (alas too late by the idiot Maclaren so he left it too late for Beckham to help them qualify for Euro 08) and then to his moving to LA. Last wek it was Beckham mania in Sydney and although LA lost he did score a brilliant free kick. The Aussies usually love to hate 'poms' but in general the media loved him. No bad word was heard about him. Anyway the documentary struck us how level headed and grounded he is. He came over as just a very ordinary bloke who like playing football, he freely admits crying on the plane when Maclaren told him his England career was over. He just seems so so together , not at all pretentious. Some of those Australian/American idol wannabees have more attitude and ego issues than Beckham who happens to be the most famous human on the planet.Celebs in general can learn a lot from him. Refreshing!
