Im on Beckhams side on this one......

Beckham reacts to abuse from fans

Monday, 20 July 2009 08:04

David Beckham got involved in an ugly confrontation with fans at his first home game for the Los Angeles Galaxy after returning from Italy.

The former England captain attempted to jump over a barrier as he left the field at half-time into a section of the crowd that had been jeering him.

He was held back by security staff, members of whom were also needed to restrain an angry fan who left his seat and rushed towards the footballer.

The 34-year-old explained afterwards in comments broadcast on Sky Sports News: 'I tried to shake one of the guys' hands but he didn't want any of it. That's the way it is.'

Beckham received a less than friendly welcome at his first home game after returning from a five-month loan spell at AC Milan - the team the Galaxy faced.

A hardcore section of the crowd booed Beckham every time he touched the ball and held aloft signs reading 'Go Home Fraud' and '23: Repent' in reference to his shirt number.

Another read: 'Hey Becks, Here Before You, Here after You, Here Despite You' while one stated: 'Is evil something u are...or something u do?'

Earlier this year, Beckham indicated he wanted to stay in Milan rather than return to America, stating that the standard of play was far higher in Italy.

The apparent snub has angered some Galaxy fans, notably a hardcore that sit in the so-called LA Riot Squad section.

Throughout the first half of the game he was subjected to jeers and obscene chants.

After the referee blew for half time, Beckham tried to hurdle an advertising boarding and appeared to make a 'come on' gesture towards fans.

In response, one man left his seat, jumped down on to the pitch and attempted to run towards Beckham. At this point security intervened and escorted Beckham to the changing room, while removing the fan from the pitch.

Despite the incident, Beckham returned in the second half. He was the last man to take to the pitch and hugged several of his former Milan team-mates before gesturing towards the rowdy section of the crowd.

A line of yellow-jacketed security staff stood below the supporters in the trouble area as a precaution.

On the pitch Beckham had a hand in both Galaxy goals, scored by Alan Gordon and Bryan Jordan, as they twice came from behind to draw 2-2 with the Rossoneri. Thiago Silva and Filippo Inzaghi scored for Milan.

After the second Galaxy goal, Beckham turned and shrugged his shoulders in the direction of the section of crowd that had been jeering him.

The former Manchester United star was substituted after 75 minutes and walked off to a mixture of cheers and boos.

On the boos, Beckham said: 'It's to be expected. Sometimes it goes beyond it. The majority of the fans have been great.'

Although Beckham saying he asked some supporter down to shake his hand it was not like that at all. He was pointing at him aggressively obviously come here and say it to my face, then the supporter jumped the railings and Beckham tried to jump over the advertising boards but was held back

Just seen it myself. Becks did not look like he wanted to shake that fellas hand at all.

Then Donovan was asked about the fan's reactions afterwards and his response was "whatever"..... Confused

If he was playing for your club and he never turned up for half the season because he wants to play for another club dont think many people would be happy with that, he is on big enough money to show up and he made a commitment to them when he signed, he wants to leave now imo so that sort of reaction will just speed the process up, he should have never gone there in the first place.

Galaxy shouldn't have taken him back!!

He undermined the club/league/fans etc by saying he needed to be playing at a higher level as its WC year and only in LA for the summer weather/Disneyland and the shops. If that happened to your own club you'd put a price on his head.

americans don't deserve soccer, or football, or whatever the f**k it's called over there.
Pissed me right off to see that.
Americans getting greedy again, supersizing their team with a world star, then go and have a silly league format, while beckham goes and plays all year long, and comes back to greedy americans again.

At least they pay their money to watch REAL FOOTBALL......not like those other twats watching 50-60 a- side "easter egg throwing"
 
Reminds me of some dopey yanks I had the misfortune to encounter on a Caribbean cruise during the 2006 World Cup.
 
I was watching the England v Portugal game, when a group wandered over to the Bar....one came to me and asked "is this the Saaarrcoor World Championship?".....I replied "NO...its the World Cup!"...he then asks after checking the score " How many Periods are there?".....so I said "NONE....they're all men". He looked at me strangley and walked off.
 
Then another chap asks "Is this OVERTIME?"......so I informed him politely, "No, they get a flat fee for playing".Wink
