I like Figo, I just... don't remember why lol...

As for Ronaldo, his name makes me think about Ronaldinho... which I dont like. Too cocky.

All and all, they are pretty lousy reasons so I would suggest you go with the one you prefer.

Figo is a has-been!

Got to go with the kid.

BTW: If you could make me a Ballack one for if (when) the Sens get booted out of the playoffs, that would be much appreciated.

HOW DARE YOU!!! Haha, Ronaldo is my favorite player, I just can't find a great pic of him in 2006 gear.

That 'kid' isn't exactly hot property right now. as much as i dislike the guy, he is a very talented footballer, but at least Figo has 'been' at some point, unlike Ronaldo, who was the face of the Suzuki Swift adverts over here (Oooohh, the Swift, the guy must be a legend for that sponsorship deal) for about 2 months, after that, Suzuki's advertisers removed any appearance of him from their tv adverts, which now make slightly less sense than they did before. Also, on previous occassions, when I've seen Figo miss a chance, he managed to avoid that 'My mum just took my toys away and said i have to eat all my vegetables' look I see Ronaldo give most saturday evenings.

Shabutie - he may be your favourite player (apologies for the insults in his direction, but he forces me to make them) but you gotta go with Figo on this one, surely. Unless you want me to make you a Pat Nevin or Neville Southall avatar. Thems were the days. Division 1 was still where all the players wanted to play, footballs weren't so perfect they ceased being perfect and when turning on the tv you could see the comforting sight of Eric Cantona kung-fu kicking that guy in the crowd no matter if you were watching the news, a sports show or a comedy show. Although that was also before the likes of Zola and Bergkamp appeared over here, but anyways...

You're being a little harsh. Ronaldo imo has really elevated his play in the last 2-3 months with Man utd. He used to be a pain to watch cuz, like Kovalev, he has all the potential in the world, but no motivation. In the past few months, he's shown more desire. I have no doubt that he'll be portugal's best this year.

Ronaldo was definitely Portugal's best at the Euro 2004 tournament.

I'm not saying his play hasn't elevated, on a few occassions over the past few months, he looked like a more mature player than i gave him credit for and at times he has looked like he is playing for a team and not for himself (as it sometimes looked like he used to). But i have a severe dislike for manchester united the team and a few of their players. Growing up in the north west here, you can't help but be bombarded with manchester united info. new sponsors, increasing the capacity at old trafford, one of their players has bought a new car, Alex Ferguson has a race horse (insert your favourite Ruud V.N joke here________), its all too much for a lot of people i know. Thankfully, Liverpool have drawn some attention away from them recently (although still not that comforting to this Everton fan) where as all we are known for is selling Wayne Rooney

Assuming he concentrates and works hard, I have no doubt that he will be one of the stars (at least as far as his individual skills are concerned) at the world cup and if he can help his team win then that will be a big boost for him and his development (Is he signed with Man U for next year - thought i heard rumours he may be on his way out at some point in the near future)

At least Man u did something right (in my mind) for once today and let Everton loan Tim howard for next season, been a fan of his for a few years. When i heard he was moving to england i was stoked, when i heard where he was going, i wasn't. At least now I can see him play with the Toffees and enjoy his play a bit more.

Eitherways, in the avatar poll, I still vote go go with Figo

I believe he signed a 4 year contract when he was 19, so it should expire in 2 years (might be wrong). I don't see Fergusson giving up on him though. I expect big things from him in the WC and even bigger things from him next season with Man U.

I vote for Ronaldo, even though he's been pretty invisible this season.
Personally, I'd like a Theo Walcott avatar
ARGH Eriksson

Either Sven is about to prove for once that he is so good at his job that he doesn't even need to know anything about the players in his team to make them win, or in his mind, all that he can hear is a little voice saying "haha, this will really screw them over. one last time." At least in the world cup he can't get away with making 13 substitutions a game. Should make a nice change.

Exactly. Bring only 4 strikers, namely two injured players who have two broken feet between them, one giant freak who can't score and a teenager who can't make his club's first team (yet). Great plan. Oh and don't forget to leave behind the English leading goalscorer this season (make sure he's not on stand-by either). England's best chance at a trophy in generations? I've already started praying.

Ottawa has one, so I don't see why not. You'd have to label it as OT: though.
