Like I didn't see this one coming. I have to say though, that I am surprised. I would have figured Beckham would have been a regular substitute, coming in with 20-25 minutes left in the game, take a few set pieces, make a couple of crosses and that would be it.
But, Beckham is starting with Milan--starting?!?!?! For a stint that was intended to be focused largely on staying in shape and get some first team action to stay on England Manager Fabio Capello's radar screen for the World Cup next year, it seems that Beckham is really making a go of it. He is not making a huge impact for Milan (at least in the parts of the games that I have seen), but neither is he total rubbish either. He seems to be fit enough to make it and honestly looks more comfortable with Milan that he ever did with the L.A. Galaxy.
Looks like L.A. is going to have to either deal him (and the MLS can make some bank) or deal with a slightly sullen player for the 2009 season.
