August Catch up with Beckham

Apologies for the delay over posting, I have been away without adequate access to the internet to even keep myself updated let alone my visitors...
Let's Recap the salient points over the last few weeks:
25/08: LA Galaxy beat Costa Rican champions Alajuelense 2-0 (CONCACAF) at the Home Depot Centre, goals from Gonzalez (from a Beckham corner) and Barrett (from a move begun by Beckham). Unfortunately, Beckham picked up yet another yellow for delaying a restart - which must make him at least one of the most booked players of the season?
05/09: LA draw away to Kansas City 2-2 - a brace from Sean Franklin in a scrappy game that saw LA lose the advantage twice. Kansas were unlucky to have a goal ruled out for offside, but then lucky to get a penalty in the final minute for handball. Beckham gets another yellow and another assist, both Beckham and Donovan are closing in an an automatic ban - I think this will be Beckhams second of the season.
Next LA Galaxy game on Friday against Colorado at the Home Depot Centre..

Meanwhile England have been performing well in the build up to the European Championships, beating Bulgaria away 3-0, a young England are looking like they could easily off-load experienced players such as Lampard and Gerrard let alone Beckham and replace them all with fresh faces. This is an exciting time for England who face Wales tonight, however a successful qualifying run-in does not guarantee a great tournament as we well know. Meanwhile Robbie Keane had a disappointing return to international football missing a penalty in a draw with Slovakia. The Republic play Russia tonight in Moscow.
