    Flintoff is a better batsman, bowler and fielder.

    IMO, Beckham isn't even a good footballer. Yeah, so he can take free kicks. Big whoop. Maybe it's just my Rugby League orientated brain missing stuff, but he seems a bit of a one trick pony to me.

    Given that Beckham's from east London, I don't think he has to try all that hard.....

    But it's Fred, by any reasonable comparison. Looks able to grow proper facial hair too, unlike Davina.....

    Oh, & Fred's bird is 10 times fitter too!

    We can debate about who would be a better sportsman over all.

    In cricket its Flintoff, in football its Beckham obviously.

    But how would they match up in some other sports? Basketball, Tennis, Ice hockey, rugby, billiards, chess, car racing and stuff?

    Also who would you say is more popular in cricket playing countries. Internationally Beckham is easily more popular if we consider all countries due to the wide reach of football.

    Perhaps Flintoff should be given a chance to partner Wayne Rooney up front - I'm sure he'd do better than Michael "I've forgotten how to run" Owen these days.

    Flintoff has mastered everything that has been required of him this summer - culminating in his exhibition of traditional English swing bowling this morning (to go with his previous mastery of defensive bowling, hit the deck attacking bowling and reverse swing bowling). Once he's mastered leg spin (surely a formality) I expect him to branch out with success into other areas.
