After Sir Alex Ferguson and Paul Scholes comes David Beckham. Three of the key figures in Manchester United's Treble-winning side of 1999 will retire at the weekend, age having at last caught up with them. While Ferguson and Scholes, still at United, will bid farewell at West Bromwich Albion, Beckham, at 38, will take his bow at Lorient in his tenth game for Paris St-Germain.

I'll remember him more for a) THAT free kick b) that goal from inside his own half and c) the way he matured incredibly fast, and moved on from all the negative press to be......a complete person. His transformation was astounding. And I will miss seeing him play
Mordern great. He may not have had the tricks to beat a man but he didn't need to because he could put that ball on a six pence. An icon a legend and a brilliant role model
