Beckham: Where to?

One of the biggest MLS rumours going around right now is the possible departure of David Beckham out of Los Angeles. In the past month or so, there has been a stir-up regarding "Becks" going to France to play for Paris St. Germain, but that has just been denied by the PSG president. But we still have no idea whether he'll stay or go. Contract negotiations are still going on, and the Los Angeles Galaxy are still waiting for his decision.

If he does go, I don't think it'll be a huge loss for the MLS. Beckham and the Galaxy have won the 2011 MLS Championship after a dominant season, which is what he wanted.

But in the beginning, there certainly was a huge buzz about his arrival in North America, but it died down at a constant rate, so that he just became a well-known soccer player. So I don't care if he goes. There are plenty of great players in the league who have claimed stardom in the league, like Kenny Cooper, Eric Hassili, Fredy Montero and Omar Bravo. It's only a matter of time until they overshadow David Beckham.

I think the league will do just fine with or without Beckham. He isn't the face of the MLS, it's all the players and teams who make it a great sports league to watch. But I admit, he does bring in good cash for being...well, David Beckham!

So, "Becks", go anywhere you wish. You got what you wanted.
