“Not bad”, Beckham.
The celebration contained an ounce of Cantona and a hint of Thierry Henry, but goal was all Beckham. The opportunity presented itself, and Becks knew exactly what to do. The goal against the Portland Timbers was tremendous. His reaction? Even moreso. As Robbie Keane, Landon Donovan, and company rushed towards him, David said “not bad” and laughed. At 37 years old, the legend lives on.
I was a professional player. I didn’t try to find a city to enjoy it. The greatest time you can have is on the pitch.
After recent stories of Carlos Tevez and now Mario Balotelli saying they’d like to leave Manchester City, Eric Cantona speaks out about his reasons for choosing Manchester United as a player over any other club.
Tomorrow Paul Scholes will walk out for his testimonial match against New York Cosmos, who Eric Cantona will be coaching. The team will be selected by Pele and Eric Cantona.

I have spent my whole footballing life at Manchester United, so this will be an emotional farewell. I hope the fans enjoy the night, especially seeing the boss and Eric battling it out in front of the dugouts.
This is a story that can give all young footballers out there hope that one day they could also pave their way in to a team of such stature, all is not lost and it’s nice to see chances like these for the youth of Britain in a game where every club is looking for the next Pele, Maradona, Ronaldo or Messi.
