    This was covered on another board. He is here for business with Adidas in terms of marketing, not MLS. Although I'd love to see him on our squad.

    So we'd have him and Reyna playing the same position??

    No, we'd have Reyna deep and Zizou upfield. But we'd have to have some serious workrate at the other two midfield spots. Neither of these guys is exactly going to cover acres of territory defensively.

    The man hasn't really played in the US. The man has a movie to promote that can easily be hyped that much more if he just even remotely graced the playing fields of MLS. THE MAN can do whatever the f#*$ he wants if he became an MLS player, it would be a media firestorm if he came out of retirement just to walk out and headbutt Joey Franchino on the nose. I for one would love it if he took time out to play one more season, even if it was for fun...

    not for at least five more years. Or more. When he's out of his prime.

    I was nice to Youri! I thought Youri was awesome! Though I did hear somewhere that Youri gave Zidane less than glowing reviews of his experience with Metros/Red Bulls.

    Re: Zidane in the City...right now

    I don't know why he would give us bad report as we let him go back home for a month in the middle of the season then gave him game off when we were fighting for playoff birth to do some diplomatic thing. Our coaches never gave him a hard time about anything or so it seemed. I could not see any team being any nicer to a guy than the Red Bulls/Metros were. I do not see him turnoing on us as he might be a coach/executive for red Bull one day , here or in Europe. I believe he would only give a positive one to Zidane or anyone else. We even brought his young little buddy Ikangu to our team though he never showed much.

    I hold no hope he'd sign but if he did, ZZ takes Youri's place and Claudio takes Amado's place. I'd say right away this is a much improved line-up from last year.

    I think the bad review (p.s. this was little more than an unsubstantiated rumor) came in '05, so prior to Red Bull and the other events you mention.

    Guys, I know this is a lot to swallow all on one day but,
    Santa? Not real...
    Zidane? Retired...
    Grab a box of Kleenex and have a good cry. You'll feel better in the morning.

    and for the record yes, I will be more than happy to eat the crow if I'm wrong on either front.

    Thierry: The World's Most Famous Arena? I do not see it, Zee. I really do not. Those Knicks suck anyway.
    Zidane: I check it out. If it sucks, I leave at halftime.

    I was at the Roma-Real game he "didn't really play" in @ Giants Stadium a few years ago. He "didn't really play" amazingly well in that game.

    And, I'm content that he's retired, just like I'm content that 1 Zidane thread is enough. Please guys, stop posting new threads where there is already one existing.

    Re: Zidane In NY, threads merged.

    Does anyone out there have the real scoop on this Zidane thing? I don't know why there is such a big huch,huch about these signings!

    Do you guys think RBNY in recent weeks made outlandish statements to the press to keep everyone of their trail with Zidane...whats the real deal here? Does anyone really know anything?

    I read this story about Zidane today in SI news, about what he maybe doing here in the United States...let me know your thoughts!
