Posh & Becks to Become American Idols

1/11/2007 3:24 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

As TMZ first reported in July, soccer stud David Beckham and his boney-licious wife, former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham, are moving to America and setting up digs in Los Angeles.

Beckham is leaving Spanish soccer team Real Madrid at the end of the season to join the Los Angeles Galaxy, a Major League Soccer team. Who knew we had pro soccer teams? The five-year deal could be worth a reported $200 million.

David is no stranger to Southern California, having already set up a local branch of his youth soccer camp, The David Beckham Academy. As for Posh, she can look forward to more shopping excursions with new BFF Katie Holmes.

While they're huge stars in Europe, Posh & Becks have not been able to mimic their media domination on our shores. Could this be an attempt by the supercouple to obtain that same level of fame stateside? We'll see!

Who cares? Soccer is not well-received in America and never will be. They have tried this before, bringing in huge soccer superstars to try and jump start soccer in the USA.......Remember Pele??? Soccer will never be anything more than a third rate team sporting event in the states. Hell, professional hockey is on it's last legs. Beckham...big deal, who cares? Spice girl wife.....no talent!!! Give me a break!

You are all ignorant of the effects bringing David Beckham will do to American Soccer. I've been a fan since his mid-field goal back in the 90's. 'Posh' is a silly and you all know it. If you had the chance to lay with her, you definitely would. Bringing Becks to MLS will bring more revenue into a league that you ignorant Americans don't even know exists. Creating a hype that will far surpass the NASL of the Pele and Beckenbauer days, this is what all of American soccer has waited for. A start.

Thank God! I'd rather see Posh and Becks in the tabloids than having to
look at those tramps Paris, Britney and "Ho"-han all the frickin' time!!! Beckham is a tremendous talent and is super hot to boot! I hope American soccer gets the attention that it deserves! I know I'll be paying attention.

Did anyone ever see their documentary on TV? Becks actually told Posh he liked her better when she was pregnant, because she carried a lot more weight on her! She seriously needs to stop doing whatever she is doing to stay that skinny - maybe Katie will help - she looks at least healthy, and somehow I don't think Tom would want her to be anorexic-like!

for those people who continue to say stupid things such as we dont want them here, and no one cares...i am pretty sure it is about the galaxy making more money then they do, also to bring more fans into the sport...he is a really great soccer player and so are most of the european players...bringing them here is to make the usa more involved in a great sport...like it is in european countries...and seriously the whole pick on victoria thing is a little bit ridiculous..can anyone say jealous much? people should really think about welcoming them instead of criticizing them so much!

Ugh. I hate them. They are so annoying. They love the attention. I just dont get why people think they are so hot. I know a lot better looking men, including my husband, and she isnt much to look at in the first place, other than to make fun of her outrageous and ridiclulous clothes.

$250 million!! You have to be crazy. No one is worth that kind of money for playing sports or even promoting the game. Who ever owns the LA Galaxy is really in LaLa Land.

I predict there will be some interest in seeing him play for about 2 mos. and then nobody will care. This overall won't increase American interest in soccer.

Who gives a rat's ass if they are coming to the USA? She is a washed up, plastic looking nobody and he kicks a ball around on the grass. It's a good thing he makes the money. How much could she have possibly made on one album? Does she ever smile? Who cares?

I think all ya'll americans are scared that this couple is going to come take over ouru land... well they will and its going to be awesome b/c they are the hottest couple EVER!! he's the s&!^ in soccer and the best look'n man on the face of the earth and she's more beautiful than any creation ever created! They have gorgeous kids and gorgeous life and more money than they know what to do with. Thats exactly what ya'll want so you can pry into their precious little lives. I just think ya'll don't like it b/c they are more powerful and beautiful than "Brangelina" is now and more than "Bennifer" was before... or more perfect than any other couple in American history. Deal with it people! This is awesome. The largest contract is sports history and its in a sport we don't even care about! EXCEPT IT!! You'll be eating out of the palms of their hands in no time!!
