    Huge name. Keeps proving people are wrong when they say he is finished. He'd still tear up this league.

    And a couple people happy to see him in the NE region. As long as he doesn't look like he's mailing it in.

    sell the farm.. win or lose we get to see a FIFA World Player of the year 2000 + 2001, there are maybe only 30 guys alive in the world who can claim that honor.

    we'd still be missing a striker who could finish 3 or 4 times out of 10. but if we had that and Figo.....MLS cup would be ours

    He's been rumoured to come to the MLS ever since I started reading about MLS. I just don't believe anything I read about Figo and Zidane any more.

    but this time its not a rumor, its a direct quote which mentions the U.S. (which obviously includes us as well)

    i dont believe hed come, but hed still dance around people at walking speed.

    then hed just score from just past half as to not spend too much energy.


    NE is his best bet. there is a massive Portuguese population there, although Im not sure if they have become americanized already.
    They really drill the pledge the allegiance down there

    I think it takes more than the pledge to kick the Portuguese futbol out those boys. NE is the frontrunner.

    Are you kidding? Figo at TFC - that is unbelievably preposterous! Can you honestly in your heart of hearts believe TFC/MLSE will spend any more serious money. They won't even pony up for a decent 'friendly', whether the fans want it or not. They can't even negotiate with the punters at city hall to get grass, or in other words, don't want to pay for it. But mark my words - the meeting will exist to discuss the ticket price increase next year. C'mon - in all honesty - give your heads a shake... I'm not admonishing anyone in this thread, I'm hopefully spreading a dose of reality. TFC will not spend big until the crowds (ticket sales) dwindle... Figo.....

    A friend of mine lived in Boston and she said that the Portuguese and Brazilian communities were huge there.

    Who are you admonishing if not the the people you wish to shake heads?

    Any and every time Figo is mentioned we'll talk about because we have the 2nd largest group of Portuguese on the continent (among other reasons like he's actually a good player). The first? NE area.

    So as long as Figo keeps talking you're gonna keep laughing.

    yeah i do

    one year of figo and the team falls apart the next year does me no good.

    not to mention we really don't need a midfielder, but a DP striker (or CB)

    There's no gaurantee of that happening. I think Beckham has taught a lesson that no team would like to repeat. They wouldn't empty the team to get him.

    I know in my heart of hearts that this can't happen, the Teacher's Pension depends on MLSE income and spending on Figo would cost...... its nice to dream though.... I mean this entire team/management/league is really a joke, busch league, and bringing Figo here wouldnt do much for the league's cred.. but who cares... I just wanna see him play in front of me.

    not just that, but lets say they decide to ship out RR and Sutton to make room for Figo......he comes, we win, he leaves.....are we not in essentially the same spot as now but with plus one championship???

    Let another team blow their dough on him and I'll watch his highlights.
    If the Revs get him thats great, we only play them once more this season after the transfer window opens.
    Last thing we need (literally) right now is another midfielder.

    It would just get everyone like yourself to the game instead of chuckling at me in my gear walking to the game past the Benfica, Porto and Sporting bars. That's no mean feat.
