    word has it that alexi lalas is looking at bringing Fatkhullo Fatkhuloev of the tajikistan u17 wc team. he's had such a big tournament and everyone knows the u17 wc is the breakout tournament for most world class players. this could be the best move made by the galaxy now moving in the direction of talented youth rather than old has been players. what do you guys think? good move? how do you think Fatkhullo Fatkhuloev will do in the mls?

    I would say it was an excellent move if the name, Alexi Lalas, wasn't involved....

    Good move. Central Asia is one of the untapped regions of the world.

    I'm loving this thread....
    Where did you get this info hairynippleman....??? This is news...I totally believe you...but its a bit wierd....
    LAG is notorious for not seeing young talent under their own noses... (Im talking about Yuri Movsesyan) let alone a seeing a 17 year old kid from half way round the world...

    Would he help sell tickets or generate interest when they go on their Asian tour? If so....there's Alexi's motivation.

    I think thats a bit of a stretch....Step right up Step right up and see David Beckham cross perfect balls to Tajiki Uber-kid Fat-Fat... no... I dont buy it...even in Asia....
    Its still wierd...I totally will cover this issue on Sunday on the Show....Its brilliant... but I wonder...arent there some awesome 17 year olds in LA that would be just as good??? (thats a big rhetorical question)

    theres tons of talent in this u17 world cup, i think all of the mls teams should be looking to fill there youth international slots with some of these players. i wonder if the mls has any scouts over there.

    There could be truth that Fatkhulloev could come to MLS. He scored the match-winner against the US last Monday.

    It's either the US is bad, or Tajikistan actually has some talent... hell, they got out of the group stage.

    I wonder how many of the inhabitants of Los Angeles know that Tajikistan exists.

    What?

    I'm just wondering.

    I wonder if Lalas knew it existed before last week.

    Drahnier....
    Unlike most European soccer players...that get thrown into a soccer academy at age 7 and know nothing about nothing except soccer... almost all American soccer players here went to University...including Lalas...
    I am positive he knows where Tajikistan is...
    Also...if California were its own country...it would be the 8th richest country in the world.... with its industry, business, agriculture etc etc... which means that we are a pretty smart bunch...its takes brains to run a superpower within a superpower... So... Most of us here in LA also know where Tajikistan is...
    Come on dude... break the Eurosnob stereotype...

    That can not possibly be true.

    I doubt most people in any city in the western world know where Tajikistan is.

    Does anyone have a link to a story about this or some other kind of confirmation that this is even real?

    Actually, he is most likely very correct about his comment. According to various reports and studies the geographic knowledge of US citizens is pretty poor.

    Unlikely. The original poster has started a bunch of threads on different forums pushing this guy. I don't know why. Some bizarre kind of trolling.
