  3. hopeless… that means he will miss next weekends encounter with Burnley. This kid is either injured or jet-lagged, it’s a shame, cause i would like to see him get a run of games at Arsenal!

  4. Hey! great! I love how he plays, he’ll do better + 1! so! I know he will try, have a nice flight.
    Carlos send you a big hug and kiss! ANA DE MEXICO!!

  5. im going to that game…its in the rose bowl in pasadena,california…a couple minutes from LA…hopefully vela plays cus when him and gio dos santos play on opposite sides they cause mayor trouble for any defense

  6. If I were Arsene Wenger I’d simply not let him go.

    No wonder he can’t break into the Arsenal fist team.

  7. VELA IS A GOOD PLAYER AFTER ALL. SINCE I LIVE IN PASADENA I WOULD HAVE THE CHANCE TO SEE HIM PLAY. IM SOO LOOKING FORWARD ON WATCHING MEXICO PLAY..GOOO VELA

  8. vela is great, and he is young, but it is the preporation of the world cup. I’m sure that vela will do great on that game on wed.

  9. this is the team that i want them to go the the world cup. Luna, Torrado, Guardado and Temo for their experience. the defence is great and i like Moreno, Vela, Gio, Chicharito because they are young and a great time to experience the world cup for better preporation for the next world cup. I also am hoping that Jonathan Dos, Santos Go to the world cup because he is so young and is playing for the best team in the world. Go Arsenal. i am so glade that Arsenal beat the stoke city.
