    And This :cool:

    Vela has been playing better than expected. And if he would get a chance at a better club i believe he would do the same. But Real Sociedad is giving him confidence and he should stay there for next season.

    I doubt he'll stay in Real Sociedad. I think Arsenal would be dumb to not want him and Vela can definitely use that as leverage to get them to sell him to a better club for a good chunk of change.

    Depending on when his contract with Arsenal expires, he may have a couple of options.

    1) Depending how many years he has left on his contract, they could extend the loan by a year. Not very likely at all but even less likely if he has less than 3 years remaining on his contract.

    2) Arsenal can agree to defer some of the transfer fee and split it up over 2 or more years so La Real wouldn't have to absorb the fee all at once. Again, I'm not sure how likely this is.

    3) Arsenal agrees to a sale at a reasonable price to Real Sociedad with a right of first refusal clause. Also they would probably insist on at least 20% (likely higher) of any future transfer fee in the event they don't buy him back and/or an appearance fee after a number of competitive matches (i.e. 2 million pounds after 100th club appearence)...


    If La Real is as broke as people make them out to be, then the latter really is the only way they have a shot at keeping him...

    This love-hate relationship he has with Chepo, I hope it continues, since I am sure it helps light the fire under his ass to display the talent we all know he has.

    Hopefully a Spanish team buys him. The Spanish league is much better suited for Mexicanos.

    10 goals 7 assists

    Only Messi,Ronaldo, and Vela have scored 10 goals or more, with 7 assists or more :)

    Vela has also contributed in 44% of Real Sociadads goals, that is tops in La Liga, Messi has accounted for 42% of Barcelonas Goals, and Ronaldo has accounted for 37% of Real Madrids goals.

    That sounds impressive, but lets not get crazy here.. if he scores 27 more goals we can compare him with the likes of Messi and R7..

    I mean, If i play for a shitty team that has only scored 1 goal all season, and i scored it, I account for 100% of my teams goals.. yay me..:rolleyes:

    I'm not saying he's better, obviously Messi and Ronaldo are in a league of their own.

    It's just an interesting little stat ;)

    i think it's more a reflection of how he's the focal point of the offense.

    it's nice to see him back on his feet, and i'm sure he appreciates the opportunity in donostia, but i wish he can move to a bigger club and perform like this on a bigger stage.

    Might be difficult given that a bigger club might want him as a back-up and not the focal point of their attack. But I don't see how he couldn't perform like this or even better since that club would basically be competing against the same opponents he is now and he would have a lot better players on his team.

    His only enemy is a manager not giving him a shot..... cause skill he has.

    That's not a real fair comparison. RM and Barca have scored way more goals than RS.

    Yea we'll see how much he really loves Real Sociedad when they can't afford to match offers he gets from richer clubs because as transfer season gets closer we're going to be seeing alot of reports/rumors of different teams showing interest in Vela.

    It's true that we can't directly compare vela to Ronaldo and messi. But I think looking at the percentage of goals of the total shows that vela is the MVP of real sociedad just like messi and Ronaldo.

    One could also say its unfair to compare Ronaldo and messi to vela because Ronaldo links up with özil, kaká, di Maria, benzema, and messi does it with iniesta xavi and alexi Sanchez while vela has less quality to play with
