After consulting with his family, Beckham hands in captain's armband.: You have to wonder how that consultation with the family went...Becks: Do you think I should quit as England captain? Victoria: Yes, can I borrow your sarong? Brooklyn: Yes, Dad. Can I have an Aston Martin? Romeo: Yes, Dad. Can I change this stupid name you've given me now? Cruz: Whhaaaaa!

Buh-bye Becks. In other analysis, Terry Butcher ain't pulling his punches. * giggles with glee only appropriate for a Paddy *

Interesting Beckham post and comments over here, by the way.

There’s your answer to the question of England’s future success – “You vill score ze goals und win ze game or else you vill be put against ze vall und shot.” LOL! Achtung! And that sarong--that's just sowrong (so wrong.)

Terry Butcher is an arse. Thanks for all your hard work Becks.

I get the feeling that Terry Butcher sits down to write thinking "How can I get my article noticed? I know, I'll say something I don't really believe but that might grab a headline." I second him as an arse.

If Butcher believes we're no further along than when he arrived he doesn't remember the Germany game at Wembley . Butchers managerial career is going well though....

He does seem to have been enjoying his contrarianism a little too much throughout the cup.
