Beckham didn’t give 100 percent effort. Beckham didn’t give it all in training. Beckham was a bad captain. Sell more books. Sell more books. That was the first impression I had of Grant Wahl and his new book about Beckham joining the MLS – he was driving up the controversy.
I do plan on reading The Beckham Experiment but I’m tired of hearing Grant Wahl saying Beckham was serious about playing for the LA Galaxy. I’m curious about the day to day events of Beckham time in LA, and the impact it had on the players on the team. But, Grant Wahl doesn’t seem like a soccer players journalist. And doesn’t seem like someone who really understands the game of soccer down to how players feel and approach the game. Perhaps Wahl will grow from this experience a bit and see it from Beckham’s side too.
