Galliani said: The agreement is done and all that is missing are the signatures. Beckhams arrival is certain to happen, 100 percent. Beckham, 34, returned to LA Galaxy in the summer after a six- month loan spell. Going back for a second stint is seen as vital to his preparation for the World Cup in South Africa next year. The England star has won over doubting US fans this season -- he received a standing ovation when he was substituted late in the 2-0 win over San Jose Earthquakes which confirmed LA Galaxy as winners of the MLS Western Conference. millwalltoban Galatasaryfan MILLWALL have vowed to ban for life the supporter (above) who wore a Galatasaray shirt and appeared to make stabbing gestures during the Lions 2-1 win over Leeds. Two Leeds fans died before their Champions League clash with Galatasaray in 2000 and Millwall chief executive Andy Ambler said: We will try to identify him and if we do, he will be banned. Millwalls lions share: page 41 by harry lane by neal collinsARSENE WENGER today issued a harsh warning to his young Gunners, telling them you do not have the lux- ury of missed chances after letting a 2-0 lead slip against lowly West Ham. Arsenal were in total control at Upton Park yesterday following first-half goals from Robin van Persie and Wil- liam Gallas. But Carlton Cole pulled one back after 74 minutes when stand-in keeper Vito Mannone pushed a free-kick into the six-yard box. Then substitute Alessan- dro Diamanti netted an 84th-minute penalty after Alex Song was adjudged to have tripped England striker Cole. West Ham finished with 10 men when Scott Parker was shown a second yel- low card, but were not to be denied a much-needed point as England keeper Robert Green -- arguably at fault for Van Persies opener -- produced a fine reaction save from the Dutchmans bul- let header in stoppage time. While the draw moved Arsenal up to third on goal difference above north London rivals Tottenham, whom they host next Satur- day, a fifth straight league win would have seen them capitalise on Manchester Uniteds defeat at Liver- pool and narrow the gap on leaders Chelsea to three points, with a match in hand. Wenger fumed: It is very frustrating. It is, of course, a major missed opportunity. In our job, you do not have this luxury. You need to get points when you deserve to get points and sometimes when you dont deserve to get the points. We never got them when we deserved them -- and that means we have not made the maximum of what we should have done. But we have to keep the positives as we played well and are a strong team. We want to learn to finish these games off, which is basically the most important lesson of the day. We have a great chance of winning the title this year, but you cannot repeat this kind of performance we had and not come out with three points. While Wenger felt referee Chris Foy was generous with what proved to be the key decisions, the Arsenal manager called for his youngsters to be more clinical. He added: We complicated our game a little bit and had five or six chances in the second half, but we missed the final ball. That is what we have to learn. Given Mannones dis- appointing effort for Coles goal, Wenger n o w has to decide whether he needs to bring back Manuel Almunia as his No1 goalkeeper before Wednesdays Carling Cup clash against Liverpool at the Emir- ates Stadium, where he will field an inexperienced line-up. MANCHESTER UNITED manager Sir Alex Ferguson risks further action from the FA after slamming referee Andre Marriners performance at Anfield yesterday. Sir Alex -- already in trouble for his comments following Uniteds draw against Sunderland three weeks ago -- was furious after his sides 11-match unbeaten run came to a halt at Liverpool. Fergie fumed: It is a very difficult atmosphere here. There was a wounded animal aspect to the game. It is hard to handle for a referee. The most controversial decision was Jamie Carragher bringing down Michael Owen. He was clear through. The laws of the game were altered to prevent professional fouls of that nature and if Carragher goes off, he is their best player and their captain. It would have been a different game. And when Carrager went right over the top of the ball on Carrick, the ref was only six yards from it. It was a bad decision. Their fans were fantical, the referee was under pressure. With every decision it was the same. And booking Nemanja Vidic was the worst decision. Vidic was sent off for the third time in as many game against Liverpool but Ferguson insisted: Part of the challenge is to get over disappointments. Last season we lost at home 4-1 to Liverpool which was a travesty -- but we went on to win the League.
