    Well, you did say "vale v!irgas con Peru" whatever the hell that means which is completely untrue, Farfan has always performed for la sele. It's not his fault our defense sucks.

    Again, mentioning the WorldCup like if you won it or something. Lets make it crystal clear for you, how many world cups did it take for your player to be noticed by a big club? How many world cups did it take for Farfan or any of Peru's great players to be noticed by a top club? See the difference, some players talents need more convincing than others ;)

    Basically, you have to look a few layers deeper than that. Its comparing Ecuador to Peru, next door neighbors :p

    Fight it out :)

    There is no Equaridorian who can compare to Farfan or Pizarro as a matter of fact.

    Valencia is pretty good, but in the end I think Guerrero is going to turn out the better player

    Oh its not a fight, just some points with a hint of smack behind it. In the end, we all got PSV's back ;)

    97 was the last time you guys went to war?

    I for one don't think that Mendez is the kind of player you need to buy from South America. The potential is not high enough to warrant a transfer-fee. That's probally the reason why PSV didnt want to buy him. Like they didn't buy Tardelli and did buy Salcido, Farfan, Alex and Gomes

    also seeing the fact that mendez has some kind of hepatitis or sumthing....it was a risky move to get him to Eindhoven but it was a risk that has made all the difference in PSV's qualifying campaign both CL and their domestic league...and on another note...there is 1 ecuadorian who overshadows farfan and pizarro combined...his name is Alberto Spencer....arguably better than Pele

    Penarol and for Barcelona SC...Inter Milan wanted to buy him twice but Penarol blocked the deal from going through....he scored a hat trick against Pele's Santos back in the day, won the Libertadores 3 times, won the Intercontinental Cup twice beating Benfica and Real Madrid and is still the all time leading goal scorer of the Copa Libertadores with 54....he's been capped by ecuador and uruguay at the same time and was almost capped by the 1966 British world cup squad because his skills were so sick...the only thing which keeps him from mainstream notoriety is the fact that he never played in Europe and never went to a world cup....for this reason his legacy is shadowed by other players who are more famous but not necessarily more skilled

    First, I want to really kick Loraz for not doing his job as a moderator. This topic is about Edison Mendez, not Fartfan or any other Peru player.

    Second, to PaulNL, I don't know where you come from, but to come here and to say Fartfan is better than Mendez is just stupid on your part. And Guerrero better than Valencia? That is teh biggest joke I seen.

    Get the ******** outta here, while you still got an ounce of creditbility left, loozer! :cool:

    Loraz should, and tell his posters not to insult others. We were having a discussion, comparing Mendez and players. Noone was insulting anyone. Some people here get very defensive then offensive. Outsiders come here with relevant posts to Mendez, no need to get defensive. You wouldnt want to be treated like this in other forums, unless of course you bring that attitude.

    Mendez defenitly got way less potential then Farfan. Farfan is also a lot younger.

    Farfan ends up at Chelsea, Barca or Milan while Mendez becomes a usefull player for PSV

    I never said Guerrero is better then Valencia.

    So whats your point?? BTW, Farfan is also playing terrible this season. So if he keeps playing like this I don't think he will end up at Chelsea, Barca or Milan.

    Hehe, OK I bet he will not move to a big club if he keeps playing shit in the CL and the competition untill the season ends.
    A big club is a club who plays in the CL in a big competition...
    Ofcourse is Farfan a great player but you must admit he can much, much better then what he is showing us right now.

    Ok! Please Stop this Farfan - Mendez Comparison! We have come to the conclusion like 4 threads ago that they can't be compared since they play different positions and are different types of players!
    So there!
    Are they (Mendez and Farfan) going to play Copa?

    Now that one I cannot agree upon. cubillas was great, but Spencer did so much more.... Unfortunately, at that time, ecuador had not team to help him reach higher goals like Cubillas did.
