Fans spot huge flaw in story of how David and Victoria Beckham met in Netflix documentary

Fans spot huge flaw in story of how David and Victoria Beckham met in Netflix documentary

Viewers of David Beckham's Netflix documentary think they have spotted a huge flaw in the story how David and Victoria met

Eagle-eyed viewers of Netflix's new David Beckham docu-series think they have spotted a huge flaw in the story of how David and Victoria met.

Directed by Fisher Stevens, Beckham is the four-part docu-series, which features never-before-seen footage, along with high profile moments throughout his life, both on and off the pitch.

The Beckham family discuss a wide range of topics, from falling out with Sir Alex Ferguson to his alleged affair years ago. You can take a look at the trailer below:

While fans of the former footballer have been soaking up the new series, others have suggested a slight plot-hole with regards to how David and Victoria first met in 1997 at Old Trafford.

So, footage from the first episode shows Victoria watching her future husband play for Manchester United.

When Posh is seen on the pitch at Old Trafford, the camera cuts to David scoring - at a totally different stadium.

The clip is actually from a match at Stamford Bridge in London, which took place weeks after.

Viewers are shown the no.7 warming up while he talks about the game that Victoria attended.


As expected, nothing is missed on social media these days, as one fan wrote: "The Beckham mini-series has a bit talking about Victoria watching David at Old Trafford before showing a goal he quite clearly scores at Stamford Bridge and I for one am livid.

"Heads must roll for this catastrophic continuity error!"

A second person added: "Old Trafford, that’s Chelsea is Becks a time traveller?"

"Victoria says she watches David play at Old Trafford, he clearly scores a goal at Stamford Bridge," argued a third.

"I mean, what are we to believe, that golden balls has a magic teleportation device. Ha ha, boy, I really hope somebody got fired for that blunder."

Elsewhere in the doc, one of the biggest talking points is the ex-England captain's alleged affair with Rebecca Loos.


Becks was in the middle of his first season at Real Madrid when his former assistant claimed she had slept with him on numerous occasions.

While Beckham denied anything had happened, the story went everywhere, with the world's media splashing it on their front page - ultimately putting his marriage under strain.

The famous couple both open up about how the alleged revelations pushed them to breaking point.

"It was the hardest period because it felt like the world was against us," the mother-of-four said in the documentary.

"Here’s the thing — we were against each other if I’m being completely honest.

“You know, up until Madrid sometimes it felt like us against everybody else but we were together, we were connected, we had each other.

“But when we were in Spain, it didn’t really feel like we had each other either.

“And that’s sad. I can’t even begin to tell you how hard it was and how it affected me. It was a nightmare.

“It was an absolute circus — and everyone loves it when the circus comes to town right? Unless you’re in it.”

The duo are married with four children: Brooklyn, 24, Romeo, 21, Cruz, 18, and Harper, 12.

Beckham is available to watch on Netflix now.
