Wanna know why Becks is worth all that money AEG has thrown at him? Word is that Galaxy season ticket prices have gone up by $200 and that they have sold 1000 season ticket today. And tell me another player who could get the American public so hot & bothered that other clubs are selling heaps of season tickets on the back of his signing? When you see a press release stating that DC United sold over 200 season ticket this afternoon alone and that Toronto FC (who have yet to even play a game) have sold over 100 you know why. Not to mention that the merchandising arm of the league and the Galaxy are probably frothing at the mouth to get all of those Becks Real Madrid kits at your local Foot Locker replaced with yellow & green ones with the number 23 on them.
Also FC Dallas skipper Steve Morrow confirmed that he is pursuing Ducth star Edgar Davids (he of the flowing dreads and strap-on goggles) to BBC Five Live . Soccer 365 has a piece on it.
What a day, what a day.
