David Beckham back in Los Angeles

After an exasperating summer, David Beckham has one expectation for his first full season with the Los Angeles Galaxy. "To win something," he said as the Galaxy opened training for the Major League Soccer season. Los Angeles finished fifth in the six-team Western Conference last season and missed the playoffs.

"We can't afford to be in the position we were in, where we ended up chasing it," David Beckham said. "That's not good for the players or for a team. We've got to get it right from the first game and carry on right through the season."

The British star also experienced personal frustration. He arrived in Los Angeles in July with a sprained left ankle in his last game with Real Madrid, then sprained his right knee about six weeks later.

He played in just eight MLS and tournament games, made four starts and finished with one goal and three assists.
