    Forgive my ignorance, but why no Bautista? I would include him just for the stunner he made against Boca in the Copa Libertadores. (BTW I was watching that game in Cancun, and thought the bar was coming down after that. Insanity.)

    Bofo Bautista is a club player he never panned out for El Tri. He had his chances and never really produced.


    I did forget Bravo though, he could be useful on the bench.

    Jesus Arellano?! The dude getting older and has been injured, what has he done as of late?

    GK Oswaldo Sanchez
    D Salvador Carmona
    D Ricardo Osorio
    D Rafa Marquez
    D Carlos Salcido
    D Gonzalo Pineda
    M Pavel Pardo
    M Zinha
    M Blanco
    F Ramon Morales
    F Omar Bravo


    Memo Ochoa
    Luis Perez
    Gerardo Torrado
    Alberto Medina
    Jaime Lozano
    Guille Franco (lets admit it, we need him)
    Kikin Fonseca
    Aaron Galindo
    Gringo Castro

    This would be the best, and still very possible team for the WC next year. I would even go as far as saying that Guille should play instead of Bravo, but we'll see. I would also opt that Gringo Castro plays instead of Cramona, but since he hasnt been called up, not likely to happen.

    About Guille playing in the WC: http://mediotiempo.com/pi/noticia.php?id_noticia=7445

    Even if healthy, he hasnt shown that he can regain the form that he had in WC 2002. When was the last time he stepped on the field with El Tri?

    I would definetely like to see Arellano back on the seleccion if hes healthy, at least for a couple of games to see if he still has it.

    The first round qualifiers. I remember he scored two goals against Trinidad at Trinidad.

    Hell, he even scored a goal to tie the Monterrey-Cruz Azul game 3-3 in the liguilla.

    I think he will be back to his regular self this tournament. He is just as old as Blanco but has always been in better shape.

    He never did anything on the National Team.
    He's still got two seasons to show some stuff though.

    like to see Bofo on the bench instead of Mario Mendez and Chato Rodriguez, Bofo has not recieved that many caps compared to those two playerys I mentioned and they haven't anything to impress me. Mario and Chato can't hold the ball was good as Bofo can.

    Another thing is the Zinha, good player but hes wasting the naturalized position where a Mexican born player could easily covered. We need a fw/striker that won't make you say " la va fallar" when going on a counterattack. Blanco is the only player that I don't need to worry when it comes to those situations. If Mexico is going to have a naturalized player, it should be a good solid foward with a good height. Guille Franco or Gaitan.


    My Line up

    GK Sanchez
    D-J.A.Castro
    D-Galindo
    DMarquez
    D.Salcido
    M.Pardo
    M.Pineda
    F.Blanco
    F.Borgetti
    F.R.Morales

    D-Pineda
    DM-Marquez
    LM-Morales
    OM-Blanco
    FW-Bravo
    FW-Borgetti

    there, no naturlizados, though i do really like how zinha plays, and wouldnt mind replacing him with morales in that line up.
