Before the hipster looks, fabulous American lifestyle and god-like status, David Beckham was just like one of us.
Remember when you used to think like this about the former Man United midfielder?
1 Don’t lie… we weren’t quite sure about his dress sense
2 And we were always in two camps over the curtains
3 He was just another of Fergie’s fledglings before *that* goal against Wimbledon
4 We thought he was pretty idiotic for this kick during the 1998 World Cup.
5 But thought this was going a bit far…
6 We thought for days about the chances of *that* boot hitting his eyebrow
7 And we could never really work out how the Football Academies were going to work
8 We always thought he sold out a bit when moving to the LA Galaxy
9 But everyone was a Real Madrid fan as the Spanish side won the La Liga title that season
10 We couldn’t really understand why he trained at Arsenal
11 And Spurs
12 We got stupidly excited when Beckham was named in the provisional GB squad for the 2012 Olympics.
13 But for all of the marketing deals, sponsorships and perfumes, we also associated these badboys with Beckham
It’s been quite a journey.
