On the Brink: The Final Two

The end is upon us. Two teams remain in the relegation fight with just two weeks remaining. Chivas and Veracruz long ago excused themselves from this battle and recently mathematically confirmed their safety. Puebla has found themselves on the bottom for some time. Their fight can't be questioned; their quality is highly questionable. Puebla continue to drop chances for attainable points. With two games left, their fate is truly on a razor's edge.

The Away Goal Final

The grand finale of the Liga MX kicks off once again tonight with the defending champion Leon facing the Tuzos of Pachuca. This anticipated match-up pits two teams with a vastly different temperament. The obvious juxtaposition of the consistent force of Leon and the flamboyant wild-card of Pachuca make for a final of intrigue. Coming up with a clear picture of how these 180 minutes will play out is a near impossibility. This could go plenty of different ways.

A Family Affair: The Idiosyncratic Eight Liga MX Liguilla Teams

Family gatherings are special for many reasons. Time away from those you hold dear can be tough. The times when everyone can come together are some of our most treasured moments. It's also a time to remember that insanity abounds. The peculiarities of family know no bounds.

The Liguilla is in many ways a coming together of a diverse bunch. These eight characters now meet again to decide one victor. How exactly it is going to go down is anyone's guess, but it will surely be entertaining.

Burrito Wrap - 14th April

Copa Libertadores image
Two games left and the playoff race is as tight as ever while at the other end the relegation battle is concluded early. Welcome to the Burrito Wrap.
 
Plucky Atlante should fear for the future…
 
So, my prediction from a couple of weeks ago was wrong. Just as it seemed Atlante had hit an unlikely run of excellent form they suffered an end of season collapse and will now play in the Ascenso MX in the 2014-15 season.
 

The Best and Worst of Mexican Soccer 2013

It was a great year if you support Mexico's most popular club team. It was pretty terrible, otherwise. El Tri was an abomination. Club America were the most successful club team and then managed to parlay that into a national team coup d'état. It was ugly.

Yet, it's the time for reflection and glossing over the past twelve months in a holiday cookie-fueled haze. So without further ado, I give you the best and the worst of Mexican soccer 2013 ...

My Gut Feelings – Predictions of the Jornada 11

It’s this far in the Apertura 2013 and the jury is still out on who is the dominant candidate to win the Championship. Last week’s Jornada was a little slow and below average in my opinion but hey it’s a new week, it’s Friday and guess what that means? The beginning of brand new Football weekend! Let’s look at what we have here for this weekend and I will predict who will be the victor. Hopefully I do a better job than last week.
 
 
Morelia vs. Monterrey
 
Prediction: Morelia
 

My Gut feelings – Predictions of The Jornada 10

Yes, yes it’s the weekend that means the next Jornada is upon us. It's time to wipe those tears from the last week and focus on the Liga Bancomer MX.  Who’s going to take the points this week? Who’s going to rise in the Tabla General? We’ll I’m going to give my predictions for this week hopefully I’m right because… I love being right!




Querétaro vs. Atlante


Prediction: Club Queretaro         

Victor Manuel Vucetich - New Captain of the Tritanic

Don’t start playing "Nearer my god to thee" yet… for there is still a chance that Mexico can qualify to the 2014 FIFA World Cup. It might be in a very embarrassing manner but nobody really cares how you got there when you are there, just ask France or Uruguay. The fact of the matter is that Mexico has used up all their “last” chances. After this past FIFA match date saw two losses in a row including the “Aztecazo II”, they really cannot go for anything less than a victory and try not to have the “Aztecazo III” in the same year.
 

Trading Places: A Preview (of sorts) of the Apertura 2013 Season

If Mexican league fans learned anything this year, it’s that everything has a price. We are more than used to jerseys smattered with more sponsors than a race car. However this summer took it to another level. We saw a rash of clubs being scooped up by other cities for coveted top flight position and the league receiving a ridiculous branding stamp right over its recently christened name. 

Torta Tuesday, Week 3, Clausura 2013

Seven more red cards were shown in the third week of this season. I’m going to try to avoid writing too much about that because it’s becoming equal parts ridiculous and infuriating. Therefore, I am going to stick to the positives this week … as they were in abundance, too. This week’s torta is a tribute to everything Poblano. I raise up a Super Torta in Puebla’s honor.
