In one of the "1000" videos she is blowing him a kiss. So sweet. I will look If I could find it when I'm home.

I can't believe I wasn't able to watch the game last night and join you all in what I imagine was an ridiculously emotional evening.

I've been sitting here trying to write something profound, something that might be able to sum up a fraction of the emotions I'm feeling right now...but hey, you all know how I feel, because we're all feeling it. I'm proud to have been 'by his side' over these past 10 years, alongside you all, and I'll keep the 'souvenirs' with me for a life time and will forever be honoured to say that I saw him play. I have spent hours and hours, days and days of my life watching him play the game he loved, and made me so obsessed with, and don't regret any of it. Well, maybe the time I tried to watch LA Galaxy. :p

When I was a teenager I used to record every Real Madrid match and I would watch my favourite games over and over again. Of course, we all have our Beckham moments but there is one that stands out for me very clearly and in the days before youtube (we're so OLD) it is this moment that I would fast forward to every time.



I remember it like it was yesterday. Probably because I've watched it so often! :D

David said it was the best football of his career, and nobody would disagreed with him. I thought a recent article in 442 magazine summed up that period of his career perfectly.

"From Ronaldo’s goal after 14 seconds in the Madrid derby to the hat trick at Old Trafford; from Figo’s dribbles on one wing to Roberto Carlos, a bullet on the other; from Raul scooping the ball over countless keepers to Beckham finding Zidane on the volley from so far away that one newspaper claimed the pass had been delivered from out on Orense street, a mile away; from that volley to THAT volley, voted the greatest goal in Madrid’s history; from one Balon D’or to another, to another. And always the hint of something special in the air. Something unexpected. Luis Figo looks at the magazine again, he picks it up and takes it with him. Good memories. The sun is streaming through the glass windows onto the balcony. Sum it up in word, Luis. “A privilege.”

Well David, I don't care how corny it sounds, it really has been a privilege.

So lovely words Ish :hug:

No of my friends can understand how I feel. It is nice to have a place where we could meet people who feel the same.

Oh my! Ish, it's so nice to see you, ehm read you. Your words, couldn't have said it better. Yesterday was such an emotional day for us. Today was fun, reading thoughts that David is overrated, that it's good that his ass finally retired etc. etc. Who cares. We know he is one of the greatest and it's too sad to see him gone.

Ish, you reminded me that i used to record every Real Madrid game too and then watch it. I tried to open some of them, but it doesn't work on my PC now, i guess it's too old or something. Too bad.

It wasn't even on last night. It was an interview with Frank Lampard instead.

When you look at his stats they really do speak volumes. For England he basically scored or assisted a goal every 2 matches, he is one of the most capped England players of all time, he is the only England player to score in 3 World Cups...
