View Full Version : Bigger Than beckham?
I have just read the September issue of World Soccer and was interested to read Simon Bank's article about Ronaldo being more popular than beckham in the Far East.
The myth that beckham is the biggest player in the Far East was quashed by German sports marketing company Sportundmarkt. The company surveyed 3,000 people from China, Japan, and South Korea and it was found that 60% rated Ronaldo higher than beckham in terms of appeal. Nice to see the Asians appreciate good football, as Real Madrid where ranked higher in support terms than Man Utd in all 3 countries too.
Hope beckham has read this too, and maybe his ego will deflate once he realises he isn't the biggest player at his club anymore!
There is no chance of his ego dying down. He still knows about all the hype he gets everywhere else. He mainly gets the hype caus he looks like a twat and is very very very very very in touch with his feminine side. But thnks for the news that becks isnt that biggest guy in the far east. Thank god
Bah, I hate these footballer recognition battles.
I'd much prefer the soft-spoken Rauls and Bergkamps of the world who do their talking with their skills rather then a walking hype machine.
Raul aint doin much talking wiv his skills at the moment tho.............
And Bergkamp is showing off his skills ina reserves derby. It doesn't really matter. I was just using them as examples because I consider them living legends.
I thought Raul was playing really well at the mo?
He is, scored a hat trick on saturday, Real won 7-2, his first two were outstanding! Fantastic player in my books!
C'mon REAL MADRID we will definitely win the la liga barca aint got no chance.
saw some footage on the tv last month. and it was the real madrid players gettin together with fans in asia. and all the asians wore zidane and beckham strips. there werent any ronaldo raul or figo!
So lufc_1986! What u talkin' abaht?
To be fair, the Spanish media were jumping on Raul for 'average' performances but I wouldn't bother much with them. They love him, now, after Spain's win. :rolleyes:
Did anyone catch Zidane's volley in the 7-2 win over Valladoid? Pretty stunning.
Don't have Sky, I'm afraid, and I didnt stay up for the ITV highlights
I saw the brilliant volley by zidane.
Was it as good as his goal in the final 2 seasons ago?
