I'm surprised that so many posters mentioned Omar Arellano. I knew he was shit years ago.
i too think it's a bit unfair to include reyna. he has done well while playing under chepo. he hasn't single handedly won any games, but he was brought in during the gold cup to kill off games which he did help with his passing. i think he still has a spot on chepo's team, though i don't think he'll ever start over gio.
For what it's worth, Reyna has been playing more than GIO so he should start over him in the NT right now.
This...players that are stricitly speed and offer nothing sensational in any other areas are garbo down the way.
Fair point but pretty well isn't really lighting it up is it?
I'm not old enough to make a real analysis on Galindo though. Only faintly remember him with la sele. But maybe that's the point? lol
I have a better memory of his league play.
Really just going off mi viejo on this one and interested in what some of the older bigsoqueros think about him.
just use wikipedia or some other internetz sites. thats how some other bsmx'rs around ur age do it.
any memories you have of him are him way past his prime.
I remember him, what I remember was he was brilliant and had a sublime touch and passing more than a deadly strike or flashy (see Venado) stuff. I think he did pretty well and I would not include anyone in the top 10 scoring list in this thread.
I did too.
I really thought he would be an important player for the 06 run, but he really was shit. I think his best game was that first game against guatemala.
Agreed, I remember watching his first game and he scored a goal where IIRC he hit with the outer part of his foot, and I recall thinking that is why we need him. he can score those goals, especially at a time when we had no scorers on the team.
Guille was the biggest choker the NT has had in the last 10 years
El pity Altamirano
^********, he looks like Cobi Jones in that pic.
Fernando Arce cuando jugaba para el Irapuato
Pedro Pineda, what happened to this guy?
Actually, that's a good one. I didn't watch the 1991 U20s (one of our underrated teams, only loss was an elimination match in extra time to host and eventual champs Portugal), but I remember where I was when I first heard Milan signed him. Man did I have high hopes.
edit-said inter originally
I'm playing FM12 and this kid named Victor Manon is lighting it up in U20 WC for me. What happened to him for reals? Also, what happened to Alberto Ramirez?
What time is the game? The guide is not listing it and telemundo's mobile site is useless.
