Soccer Betting Beckham Sits Again

Online betting soccer fans watched how David Beckham took his familiar place on the bench again Sunday as the Los Angeles Galaxy played a soccer betting game against the Revolution in New England.

Beckham has yet to start for the Galaxy since signing a five-year, $32.5 million contract.  He has made only token appearances so far for Los Angeles in soccer betting games.

He made his MLS soccer betting debut last Thursday against D.C. United but was back on the bench on Sunday and did not play as the Galaxy lost again in a soccer betting game.  Online betting soccer followers know that Taylor Twellman scored in the 55th minute to give the Revolution a 1-0 soccer betting victory in front of 35,402 soccer betting fans.

Many of those soccer betting fans paid premium prices in hopes of seeing Beckham.  A few in the front row behind the benches got his autograph but that was about it.

“I’m always disappointed when I can’t play.  But I’m working hard so I’ll be able to play again soon”, Beckham said.  The goal is for Beckham to play in the next week or two in the soccer betting games.  That means he may play for England in an exhibition soccer betting game against Germany on Aug. 22 or in European Championship qualifiers soccer betting matches against Israel on Sept. 8 and Russia on the 12th according to the online betting soccer experts.

“I know the fans are disappointed” Galaxy coach Frank Yallop said.  “We feel for the fans, because they’re excited to see him play.  But at the same time we have to make sure we do the right thing by him, too… he feels and looks better, but he’s still not 100 percent”.

Beckham sprained his ankle while playing in a soccer betting game for England in June, then aggravated it while still with Real Madrid later that month.  He played 21 minutes on Thursday as a substitute in a 1-0 loss to D.C. United, but is still not ready for a full game.  “My ankle flared up a bit after the game the other day, and it’s swollen up a little bit from flying”, Beckham said to the online betting soccer fans thru the press.

Many around the MLS are hoping that Beckham plays soon.  Even some of his opponents want him to play.  “It’s exciting”, New England defender Michael Parkhurst said.  “We grew up watching him, and obviously he’s one of the best in the world”.

The Galaxy could sure use Beckham.  They are struggling at 3-7-5 just two points out of last place in the West in the MLS soccer betting standings.
