Emma and I got the chance to watch the LA Galaxy/Chelsea game on Saturday – the first game featuring David Beckham. It was quite a spectacle, not for the game, in which Chelsea ran rings around the Galaxy’s midfield (LA’s defence was pretty decent which is why it ended up only 1-0 – that and I’m not sure how hard Chelsea were actually trying) but for the media blitz of Beckham himself.

He did get on the pitch about 12 minutes from the end, and even though he had only two or three touches of the ball it was clear that he is a class above. One pass forward was inch perfect, for example. I hope that things will work out for him – I think his new team is going to be a very different experience from what he’s been used to. I’m sure he’ll cope though.
