    Beckham is a player that is often said to be overrated, a product of the hype machine etc.  For me, Beckham was one of the most gifted players of his generation and he can lay claim to having arguably the best right foot to ever play the game.  He ends his career leaving us with many spectacular moments, but this single pass for Ronaldo illustrates beautifully Beckham’s ability to produce the near impossible:

    First of all, I would like to thank the wonderful admins of Kickette for sharing the link to the survey that was used to create this article on their Twitter page, which quadrupled the number of responses.

Perhaps a parallel survey could tell us about how those of us who like footballers differ from those who like boy-bands, although, reading the aforementioned Kickette and puzzling over why anyone would drool over Gareth Bale or Joe Hart, I suspect the results would be similar. Without further ado, here’s what we found.
