    The rumors are beginning to circulate, but where's the press??? If true, good luck Herc! You've always been a true professional in MLS.

    In this article directly from their official site, it's said that one of their reinforcements will be from another country. Still nothing concrete though...

    "Sánchez Solá, adelantó que buscaran un delantero, un medio y un defensa, uno de ellos será extranjero, además de que comentó que se le ha hecho la invitación al zaguero peruano Walter Vilchez, para que regrese al plantel, sin embargo no quiere."

    Re: Herculez Gomez to Puebla FC?

    Since my thread is linked here, I'll post that my thread came from seeing the post on the LA boards and the post in the winter transfer window thread in this forum. I've been searching the net off and on today and haven't found anything about this.

    American Herculez Gomez made his debut for Mexican club Puebla Sunday in its 2-1 loss to Monterrey in the InterLiga, Mexico's Copa Libertadores qualifying tournament. Despite the loss, Puebla won Group B with wins in its first two games and will join Monterrey, Club America and Estudiantes Tecos in Wednesday's closing doubleheader.

    He looked pretty good, too. I also hadn't realized Ruiz was doing so well for Puebla. When he came on for Gomez in the 2nd half, I looked up his record--he's apparently the leading scorer for Puebla.

    Should Herculez be called up for the farewell tour?

    Give him a run out?

    he won't play in the send-off series unless he's on the team. i know bradley as an 18 year old got garbage minutes in 2006 but arena brought him into the camp as an extra body for practice. anywho it's good to see him doing well south of the border.

    He's excellent technique on the shot and is a precision passer. He never established himself as a dominant or consistent force in MLS though. It'll be interesting to see what happens if he keeps it up in a better league than any other healthy striker save Altidore is playing.

    Bad news. Sanchez Sola, Puebla's manager, called it quits after the match. Club officials are hoping to speak to him Monday to see if he'll renege. But he's out as it stands now. Could be something to keep an eye on.

    I certainly hope the above does not apply to Herc. I doubt it does. He's has been their offensive firepower since he arrived. In the match I caught Herc playing all out, like he had something to prove. His game is suited perfectly for Mexico and I'm not surprised to see him playing well.

    It sucks that he didn't establish himself sooner.

    I could see him getting a run out in 2011-2012 for early WCQ and maybe a Gold Cup appearance. But unfortunately he will be too by the next WC:(
