Exactly, that's why everybody get confused.
Same thing in the past, the first tournament was called torneo Invierno (winter) when its summer on here, and the second one was called torneo Verano (summer) when it was winter.

Anyway, sure is strange that there is no more mention of Omar Bravo. I don't think that he's on our list. Hell, I don't know. I hate this (not knowing) thing. It's all a guessing game hahaha. But truth be told, I hope he come here and plays with Depor.

dont get optimistic or pessimistic based on rumours surrounding deportivo.. Often, players who seemed to be very close, were completely denied any contact by Lendoiro.. he may come, may not, let us just wait and see.. there is no point in thinking that "he is not on our list", until it is denied by Lendoiro..

You need to be realistic. What we have is not enough

In my opinion we need a couple of better forwards (get rid of taborda and someone else), a starting central defender (replace Piscu), a better creative attacking midfielder, a decent right midfielder, and a future quality replacement for Sergio's central midfield position. hhhmmm that would be very expensive

Is Bravo better than Xisco, Bodipo, Adrian or Riki? I don't think so. If we want to improve our attack we need to sign a real world class goalscorer (and get rid of some strikers we already have - Ruben & Taborda and Adrian on loan?). Not Bravo and not Soldado please. They won't solve our problems.

I know that Omar Bravo would defintely take a small pay cut just to play in La liga. For a Mexican Player to come over is a really big deal. Their mentality is that they will be worth more once they prove themsleves over here. My only concern with Bravo is his height. But, even then he has still scored many headers in his career. I would have loved for Depor to have brought him 2-3 yrs ago. It would have ben perfect timing. If Depor is smart they will pay him no more than 2 Mil Euros yr.

That's the whole point, the sort of striker that could really improve things are way out of our reach, so let's just stick to what we have.

Well I do think he's better. Lets see we find ourselfs close to the bottom and how many goals have (4) strikers have. Add them up! I am not saying that Bravo is going to be the answer but you never know. Last year he was top scorer of the Mexican league. This year was not so good for him. The reason, well he was angry that Chivas didn't let him go to Spain with Guardado. Anyway your right when you say we need a world class striker. I do think that Bravo is a world class striker. This is the same old song, about thinking that Mexican players are not world class or that they can play in world class teams. HAHAHAHA thats funny. And I'm from the states and I know that any player in the MLS or FMF can play in any world class teams!
Tha USA and Mexican leagues play in South American Cups and they kickass.
Mexico has come out on the top 3 teams since sometime in the 90's. USA has not competed as much there but were kicking butt there too.
Just this last 2007 Mexico was third only behind Brasil champion, Argentina second and Mexico third Uruguay fouth.
Well anyway There is alot of players in Mexico that could do the job. There is alot of players from all over South America here that could be there. Mexico is the highest paying fubol in the Americas. One thing thats funny to me is that people think of someone short to be less or not good. Well history has said different. Yeah!

When will be able to afford a "World Class Player"?? We have mediocre strykers and we are getting mediocre results(how many goals???). A young team like Depor will only change with time. All we have to do now is stay aflote in primera until we get better. We do need better than mediocre strykers BTW. If not we will never progress or score goals, which win games. There has got to be a player out there that is cheap and better than average.

I agree, but conditionally. There are some Mexicans that are of World Class caliber. However, the mentallity of the Mexican athlete is not prepared to compete at that level because they are conditioned to think that Europe is where the best players are and go. So when they have the opportunity to get there, and do, they fail. They are not prepared for this type of competition. There are exceptions in the case of Rafa Marquez, Giovani Dos Santos, Pavel Pardo, Carlos Salcido etc. But, I think that attitude is now changing. They(Mexican Players) are getting used to the idea that it is possible to be succesful in Europe. The players mentioned before have helped a great deal in that. I think Bravo would do fine here. Just like Guardado will.
