most overrated footballer wey ah don ever see. Ah s=know say Otolo nor go lek for yeri dat
overrated on the field maybe but not on his marketing brand. Football nowadays has more to do with advertising than skills on the pitch.
Goodluck to him….atleast he’ll be having a good pension and enjoying his football academy.

Actually Otolo kinda agrees (ask Posh… our forum posh!). Not the most overrated but one of the most overrated players. Pretty one dimensional but used to be the best crosser in the game once upon a time. 1999-2000 season was his best ever. He is a very likeable bloke who is more intelligent than a lot of people think. Good luck to him and whats left of his career.
This is more of a strategic marketing signing for the MLS than anything to do with football…. the MLS could have easily signed Posh Spice to the same contract and the news media in America will have still buzzed the same way…
also heard Posh Spice will be joining him in Hollywood….having said that–Will the real POSH SPICE please STAND UP [img width=32 height=23]https://forum.visitsierraleone.org/smileys/smiley67.gif[/img]Cool-Runnins2007-01-12 14:20:47
Yeah it wasn’t that bad of a deal for MLS ‘cuz apparently Addidas and AEG are footing a sizable portion of the deal and some 80% of it is tied to incentives. So apparently Becks is only guaranteed some 10 milion per year instead of the 50 milliion that is being quoted around, still a sizable amount for MLS. As long as Brand Beckham is able to sell a bunch of galaxy jerseys, addidas boots etc then all will be good[img width=17 height=17]https://forum.visitsierraleone.org/smileys/smiley2.gif[/img]
