    I remember Mañon. He was the big guy who played for the U17 in a World Cup a few years ago, the one where we were eliminated by South Korea, IIRC. I wasn't too impressed by him. He wasn't even a starter for that team.

    Remember when he was rumored to go to Deportivo la Coruña? Then Atlas fans started hating him, sucked in Copa America (along with everyone else), and eventually was transferred to Tigres where he is a standout on the bench.

    Ya I remember going seeing him live against the Red bulls, and the fans went nuts when he was subbed in. He actually scored few minutes later. I thought he'd be on the gold cup roster, but just was never heard about again...

    I googled his name and he was the captain of the U-17 in the 2003 world cup in Finland, I remembered him but not his name, he was very good back then as a 17 year old, I also though he was gonna become something but in the end nothing maybe the fact that he was with Tecos hurt him, Jonathan Orozco was in that team according to FIFA.com I totally forgot about him being there.

    Dorados not the official name though, just their nickname, like Chivas and Aguilas del America are known with their nicknames even though the real name of Chivas is Club Deportivo Guadalajara. I don't understand how its gringofied if they have been using these names since before some of those NFL teams existed, at least in Chivas case. From the little I know the Dorado is a fish you can find all along the pacific coast, much like Pez Vela, Marlin, Atun and other fish so they have every right to use those names and it makes sense to use them. Unlike, say LA teams that are called Dodgers, Clippers and Lakers which have no relation to the town.

    There is a history of already using nicknames from the region with the beisbol leagues, tomateros, tequileros...And it sounds alot nicer than calling them Tilapias/Narcos/Chapos de Sinaloa:D

    Gabacho influence, I guess. They are the only ones who name their teams after animals.

    my issue with dorados is that they changed their name from Culiacan to Sinaloa, and I never criticized neither America or chivas, my issue is against teams like Patriotas de Cordova, Bravos de Nuevo Laredo and shit like that.

    So on an interview with Picante, Nery says he ask Aguirre not to take him to the WC in 2010 because he knew he was not fit or did not feel well enough to compete at that level. So perhaps now the truth comes along, Aguirre may have afterall been holding that last camp spot for nery. If you guys remember, he was going to call an X amount of players into camp (can't remember the number), but when the lsit came out it was one short. Well perhaps it was for Nery.

    Carillo admitted that he was 99% sure that they were going to call Nery for the WC before he declined.

    Most of the players mentioned here were young prospects that never quite panned out. Examples of this kind are to be expected. But, other players I found to be even greater disappointments because they seemed to have consolidated their places.

    You know, I think there are some serious parallels between Fernando Arce and Jaime Lozano, they were a bit older than most of the players mentioned in this thread and had both managed to establish themselves in the domestic league. Both of them were lighting it up for El Tri in eliminatorias and copas (Arce in the cycle for the 2010 WC, Lozano in 2006 WC cycle)-- I had serious hopes in both cases that they would make a move across the pond.

    Both of them seemed to peak too early and failed to even make the world cup squad, with little fanfare or controversy. They had precipitous drops in form and, despite having been key components of the national squad, were hardly missed.

    That, if you ask me, is more disappointing than a Villaluz, Pedro Pineda or other young up-and-comers that never managed to do squat.

    (Maybe you include Miguel Zepeda w/ Arce and Lozano as well, but he was considerably younger in the run-up to the 2002 WC)
