  1. What? Barrera actually made it on the field. Dos Santos and Hernandez to. Did I miss something?
    As for Vela I want to see him back at arsenal but I doubt that Wenger will give him minutes.
    When does Giovani’s contract expires?

    1. Crazy, huh?

      I think Vela could do well under Wenger’s management but as we’ve seen, he seems to do better in La Liga.

      Gio’s contract expires summer 2013, but he can buy out his contract this summer.

    1. Thanks for the link!

      I’ve seen a few stories pop up on a move for Fierro since last summer. I don’t think Vergara will let him go though. Fabian seems to be the next Chivas player up for sale. Plus, he’s mentioned that he wants his players to go the way of Chicharito…with a big bang so to speak. Also, he’d probably love to boast that Chivas products have made it to the big premier league teams: Chicharito(United), Davila(Chelsea), Vela(Arsenal…although he left very early in to his Chivas career).
