I agree with this. Since his retirement he made a big deal of how great it was to be in London and to be able to spend loads more time with the children. I don't know how much time he does spend at home (and it is probably more than we can give them credit for) but working on far off projects like this just seem like more pointless money making to me. At least when he was a footballer he had a duty to be away. Now he is making his own choices and doing the same.

depends what you mean by present. If present in terms of always knowing whats going on, then probably yes. But if you mean present as in physically present, then no. He wasn't present during his stints in Milan for example and at he must be averaging 10 days a month away on business currently

I agree, but I think the problem is all the mega bucks opportunities are outside of the UK. No government in Europe is going to pay him £10 million (or whatever it is he's getting paid) to be an ambassador for the game like the Chinese have, and no serious company in the UK is going to hire him to be a "design consultant" on a multi-million pound resort like Las Vegas Sans have, and he isn't about to start a football club in Europe either.

He says he wants to be a business man, and thats great. But his main asset is his image and his image, and opportunities to exploit his image, is probably stronger overseas than it is in the UK.

Why are you talking to yourself??? :confused:

I`m sorry but I have a son who probably has seen his dad almost as long as David`s kids... I mean David is travelling all the time now. I tell my son the economy is shit and his dad has to work otherwise he`ll be homeless. Cruel yet true to some extent.... what`s David excuse.
Maybe I`m bitching because I don`t have Victoria`s nannies or my mum here, but it`s bloody hard to see the sadness on your kids face and organise everything on your own. There is no way those boys don`t miss their dad or Victoria misses her husband, especially with her work load. Can he really make up for all the lost time... Harper is growing really fast now.
I think he got used to being away all the time and simply enjoys it, home life is good for a while but I think he got bored pretty quickly. It`s ok but then don`t go boasting about loving it when you`re not home more than a week in a row.

^ You are not bitching, i think all of you are making great points here, and many arguments i myself agree with.

The simple fact is, like Tony said, he is no longer a footballer where he has to travel, and has to be away, its all a choice now. And its a bad one, imo. All those haters who keep on saying he is nothing but a money grabber, and would put even making a buck before his family, are freakishly getting a large podium from which to scream!

Its shocking to me how much he has chosen to be away since retiring, and jetting around the world with Dave, even going to parties until morning hours, and NBA games instead of being with his kids. Like you said, you can have all the help in the world, and secure your children with material things.etc, but all that really matters is having your dad around. And they are all getting bigger, not just Harper!

And then you have the balls and say publicly, how your family ALWAYS comes first, you know its just a bit lame. Now maybe VB is entirely ok with that (i actually know very few women who would be though), after all they been living like this their whole marriage, traveling,etc But from the outside its kinda sad, that not even now after retiring, he cant work out a more friendly schedule for his family, and put them first. If anyone deserves it, is Victoria and the kids, all the years of traveling and supporting him, and now he is as busier as ever by his own choice? How much money is enough money?!

^ Haha thanks, i wish it was true though lol. You know i just dont want to see David go down the middle age crisis path, it would break my heart. So i hope he has this figured out, and how it works out for the best for him AND his family for the long run.

Oh I didn't know we could copy images. I thought I'd have to save it to my phone,open photos then delete it. That was too much work for a photo I'm not that interested in haha.
Good to know copy is an option.

^ OMG those are super skinny jeans, talk about TIGHT! And DM once again shows how very credible, and intelligent they are. The article is posted today on a Sunday, and they claim he will attend the Carnival on Saturday, which was yesterday, and he clearly wasn't in the country for that. Unless its next Saturday?

ps: Lynzi, you posting in this thread cracked me up, i was like he is playing volleyball in China? :laugh:
