If he can stay healthy and the refs "protect" him, Beckham will show us all some very good football this summer.

Anybody else notice that the two teams who made United look pretty poor in our two losses this season looked far from spectacular themselves this weekend? Could be a very, very long season for the United faithful. But, as I said before, it's not how you start, it's how you finish. We'll see.

of note is that Beckham drew the foul to set up his assist on the game-winner vs Valencia.

it was a bit of a soft foul, and here's hoping the MLS refs are too "protective" of Becks in LA, as MLS doesn't need to get the reputation as the "softest" pro sport in the US.

Becks can and likely will do well in MLS. hopefully he can work up to full fitness in the next 8 weeks in Spain so he'll be able to go 90 in the nice summer US weather.

Matt,

In regards to your comment, I would not be so worried about our season. What the first couple of weeks of the season has told us so far, is that every team seems to be on the same level. There is a lot of partity, except for the pitiful Real Salt Lake. I do not think that we will see such a dominating performace from DC this year, but we will finish at or near the top of the standings. Plus the Beckham assist was great to see. Hopefully, DC will approach each game not underestimating the opposition from now on.

I would be very worried. A lot of teams have stepped up, whereas we've added one promising guy and one complete unknown who we intend to play out of position. We lost several players, a lot of depth, a winning coach. We lost a lot of team speed and cohesion. So get used to it. I'm sure beckham will get a few assists on us.

This is a marathon not a sprint. To be honest I don't care how we finish so long as we beat the Red Scum and Chicago each and every time.
