THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY

THE GOOD: Anytime Dan Loney writes a new column, it’s to the good. As a good Galaxy man, you just knew he’d have something to say about the whole Beckham deal.

THE BAD: My favorite under-achieving English side, Queens Park Rangers, are hovering perilously close to the relegation zone. 20th place in a league where 22-24 go down to League 1 (which, despite its name, is the 3rd tier of English football).

THE UGLY: Real Madrid chairman Ramon Calderon stabbed his players in their collective backs while speaking to a group of University students this week. He obviously didn’t think his remarks were oficialmente, as they say in Spain. Among the slurs, (as reported on Goal.com): . . . [H]e suggested that Beckham was “going to Hollywood to be half a film star,” and that his technical team “were right not to extend his contract, and that has been proved by the fact that no other technical team in the world wanted him except Los Angeles.”

“There is vanity, egoism and they all think they are superstars,” Calderon told the students when describing the Real Madrid dressing room.

Way to pull the troops together there, big guy. Did you forget, seƱor, that yours is an elected position? As I understand it, you’re employed at the pleasure of the stockholders of the club (read: fans). I’m sure they appreciate you gutting the team in the middle of the season. You and Fabio Capello have driven away Beckham, now you’re driving away Ronaldo, and the team is in third place, two points behind Seville for cryin’ out loud. Good luck in your next job.
