David Beckham: Not set for Orient curtain-call

Former England skipper Beckham has announced he is hanging up his boots at the end of the season.

The 38-year-old's last game for Paris Saint-Germain, on May 26, will be against Ligue 1 side Lorient and not - as some fans seem to think - against League One Leyton Orient.

So the O's sent out a message on their official Twitter feed reading: "Already had a few phone calls but to clear things up Beckham's last game is against FC Lorient not us."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
