As in is it going to go through ? If so yes I believe Shepherd has agreed to sell his shares which will be announced tomorrow with Shepherd staying as chairman and Ashley having more of a back seat role.
As to whether its a good idea well he's got more money and that's no bad thing in theory. Ive never actually hated Shepherd that much as he has always backed the manager but something did need to happen as there's problems throughout the club and we needed a full clear out an new ideas frankly. Hopefully Ashley has some spare cash to buy us a defence and a creative midfielder

The end of an era in Madrid.
Carlos has slowed down in recent years but in his prime there were not many better at left back.

Saw the England vs. Estonia Euro 2008 Qualifier.
All I have to say is, if Beckham shows the same hunger and improvements as he did against Brazil and Estonia, LA Galaxy and the MSL are getting their first elite footballer still in his prime, perhaps better than ever, in David Beckham.
Aside from his usual "inch perfect" deliveries, there were times when I thought he looked like a right sided Joe Cole with his new and improved abilities to evade defenders.

Totally agree. The crackin' goal against France was him in his prime!!!

I don't disagree.

On another subject. As a Barca fan, how would you feel if Eto'o were to be sold to Liverpool for a package that includes Xabi Alonso?

Beckham was also the best player in the friendly against Brazil. England generated zero offense through the other 9 outfield players during that game.
Just think how far back Madrid would be if Capello stuck to his guns about not playing him again.

well, being that eto'o has repeated said he was not leaving barcelona, and xabi just signed until 2012, i don't think too much about it. eto'o has always been crucial to barcas success. barca didn't win the league until eto'o came on board, and i think barca finished 3rd under ronaldinho's first year.
