Sadly, yes. Initially I thought the Galaxy had made a mistake signing him, but apparently not. They've marketed him perfectly. People are flooding to see a slightly above average footballer with an incredible amount of name recognition. I've been a Manchester United fan my entire life, so I've followed his career from the start and to while he was a very talented player, he's nothing to get excited about. He's not flashy or willing to dribble through everyone, he's just really good at crossing and free kicks. I have no idea why he got so famous.
I've seen him play in person before, and I've probably watched him play 100 times on the television. He was barely a player worth getting excited about a decade ago, and he sure as hell isn't one now. (With that said McLaren is still an idiot for ever dropping him from the national team)
