SBI MLS Player of the Week: David Beckham

DavidBeckhamVillain (

The LA Galaxy are on a roll and one of the keys to their recent run of outstanding form has been the play of David Beckham.

The English superstar was at his signature best this past week, helping the Galaxy earn four points from two matches by delivering a goal and three assists. Beckham's exploits helped the Galaxy move closer to the leading pack in the West standings, and they also helped him earn SBI MLS Player of the Week honors.

Beckham beat out a strong field of candidates that included New York Red Bulls Dax McCarty, Thierry Henry and Kenny Cooper, FC Dallas' David Ferreira and Houston's Brad Davis (to name a few).

What did you think of Beckham's performance? Which player did you consider to be the best in MLS last week?

    There is no better incentive than a man snubbed.

    Houston’s Brad Davis:

    1 Goal
    3 Assists
    3 games
    9 points

    The true MLS player of the week.

    (SBI-Only two games last week, but nice try. And yes, he was considered, but Beckham won out.)

  3. A wise man once says:

    Becks had as many goals and assists in only 2 games.

    @SBI comment

    Two games? What? You don’t like Sundays or do you only have 6-day weeks unlike the rest of humanity?

    Dynamo games this past week: 7/15,7/18 and 7/21.

    I’ll reply in the same condescending manner you did, nice try.

    (SBI-Three games in seven days? Yes. Three games in the same MLS WEEK? No. The award is Team of THE Week, Not Team of A week, or Team of The Seven Days you picked out to count as a full Week. All that said, Houston’s on a good run, and were our Team of THE week.)

  5. Kris says:

    And one of those games against the Chivas, now there’s some stiff competition. Davis went against DC and SKC this week. My argument stands.

  6. Gnarls says:

    The deciding factor was hairline. Becks wins.

  7. Kris says:

    Cheers to that one lol

  8. TheFrenchOne says:

    his current do reminds me of brad pitt in inglorious basterds. oh, and props on the great week.

  9. Eugene T says:

    I’d go with Jackson from FC Dallas. One goal and three assists for the week, plus his run created the Portland own goal that put FCD up 1-0 en route to the 5-0 rout.

    @ SBI comment

    I see you’ve found a box full of semantics. I’ll go ahead and let you run with that lol.


  11. Joamiq says:

    It’s not semantics. If he counted the previous Sunday’s games in last week’s awards, it would make no sense to count them again.

  12. Kris says:

    I’d love to argue about the number of days in the week with you but I’m genuinely bored now.

  13. Joamiq says:

    Do you actually not understand that he’s counting matchweeks as Monday through Sunday? It’s really not a difficult concept.
