Becks - The best dead ball kicker in the game, ever.

David Beckham is a polarizing figure in the sport of Soccer (Futbol). Most people either love him or hate him, which is all relative, if he is on your team you love him if he is not, you hate him. All the hype aside, one must appreciate his athletic talent and his ability to to create a brand for himself. 

As a Brand:
He is one of the most sought after players on the market. His presence, and the buzz around his presences drives ticket sales for the sport. His dedication to the game and commitment to excellence makes the players around him better.
  • 2004 was the highest played player in the sport
  • 2007 highest salary in the MLS
  • Not too mention his huge endorsement deals with Adidas and Gillette

As a Player:
He is a plug n' play player that can join any club and fill a void, be it as a scorer or as an assist man.

The guy produces results as possibly the greatest dead ball player ever. In a sport were every point counts having a player with Beckham's skills makes you a threat every time out on the pitch. 
At the end of the day, love him or hate him if he is in the Match you are going to watch, cause you never know when his one kick will change the outcome.

Great review! Funny thing is you ended your review with "At the end of the day..." and Becks always uses that saying when he is interviewed. So appropriate!

Too bad my  podiatrist can't get hold of him. Ol' Backs has Lateral Ankle Instability a condition for which podiatrist Dr. Robert Lim has devised a new surgery that's miles more effective than the old one and it gets you back on your feet within a couple of weeks as opposed to the 6 months that the old surgery took. Unfortunately he's surrounded by orthopods who are very protective of their territory. I speak from experience when it comes to this surgery.

I'm glad he at least has some skills to go with the pretty face

You forgot to mention how his "bending" ability is unmatched!

 Beckham is one of the few truly 'world class' players I've had the pleasure of watching in an England shirt.  Hits a freekick as well as anyone in the world, works tirelessly, awesome provider, and usually plays big in big matches and big moments.  Also a superb England captain.

Good looking dude, but don't know much about him since I was never that into soccer outside of the 1996 world cup. Go Brazil D:

Wiki

David Robert Joseph Beckham OBE (born 2 May 1975) is an English footballer who currently plays in midfield for Italian Serie A club A.C. Milan (on loan from American Major League Soccer club Los Angeles Galaxy) and the England national team. Beckham's stint with Milan, which began on 7 January 2009, is a loan until the end of the Italian season.

Twice runner-up for FIFA World Player of the Year and in 2004 the world's highest-paid footballer, Beckham is the first British footballer to play 100 Champions League matches. He was Google's most searched of all sports topics in both 2003 and 2004. With such global recognition he has become an elite advertising brand and a top fashion icon. Beckham was captain of England from 15 November 2000 until the 2006 FIFA World Cup finals, during which he played 58 times. Since then he has continued to represent his country and earned his much-publicised hundredth cap for England against France on 26 March 2008. He is currently England's most-capped outfield player with 109 appearances.
