This really doesn't have that much to do with this but if you look at the pictures the man with the prosthetic leg has a name change from Mark Kingston to Matt Kingston. They could atleast have the decency to get their names right ?

to expect beckham to go to afghanistan is ridiculous,

he puts in more than enough effort for charities (not just towards soldiers), remember the ali g interview for comic relief ages ago.

beckham is the only footballer i truly respect, yes he is well off, but compared to the other cnuts, he deserves it

Although that is true, you wouldn't expect to pick a random person from the street and say if you really support the troops go to afghanistan. Hes a footballer not a soldier, troops have enough to deal with nevermind babysitting football players.

So unless Beckham sacks off Milan, gets his arrse to ITC Catterick and takes part in a few patrols in Helmand, he can’t win can he…? Unless he actually looses a limb to an IED, he will never have credibility…?? Is that what you are saying…??

You can be as cynical as you want. If nothing else, the footballer’s visit to the injured servicemen helps to highlight the battles those lads are going through now and will do for many, many years – and that can only be a good thing.

Laters.

Stop being a qunt. And why have you edited your original reply about Beckham and his 'PR' machine. Because it made you look shallow and badly informed perhaps...??

As I said - be as cynical as you want.

Do you think that the lads who were visited by him yesterday share your view...??

He's an over-hyped, overpaid footballer, that's a given. To suggest that he visited those lads for his own benefit is, at best, crass. At worst, it just makes you look jealous, narrow-minded and 'small-time'.

Out.

I agree with Santa. How about an invite to the 'Stan' for John Terry, Wayne Rooney et al who were also mentioned in the article?

Just because he is married to that waste of skin Victoria doesn't make him a bad person. :?

Damned if he does, damned if he doesn't. :roll:
Good on him.

What a bunch of narrow minded chods. The England team have made the effort to meet some of the troops and highlight their cause. What the hell is wrong with that?

Very true slipperman.

It would be good if some of those visited, and photoed were Arrsers and could give us a real view of how the guys felt about the visit. They were probably chuffed to the gutties and enjoyed it.
