Mexico Reimagined

The Mexican national team is in trouble. They have chosen a path that is fraught with peril. This is not a road less traveled type of situation here. There will be no fringe benefits; this won't make them tougher. El Tri are headed down the path of the bad ending in a Choose Your Own Adventure book. It's going to get ugly, and unlike the reading of those literary relics, there are no re-dos. El Tri have made their bed ...

Concacaf Champions League: The Mexican Three

Now that the knockout rounds of the Concacaf Champions League are finally here, we get to see some intriguing Liga MX-MLS match-ups. For those unfamiliar with what these MLS teams are up against, here’s a brief look into the three Liga MX teams visiting the states for the first legs this week.



San Jose / Toluca

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.

Isn't there a cognitive dissonance involved in this? Well, my educated and well-versed reader you are very right. The tournament was awful for Mexico but it's too simple to just ignore the last five games we played this month. It's too easy to just make "Fuera Chepo" t-shirts and call it a day. It's too elementary to write Javier Aguirre another desperate letter.

Mexico's Forward for the Future

 

Finding positive signs on the horizon for the Mexican National team requires no investment of hope or exaggeration.  The recent successes of the U-17, U-20, and mostly U-23 Olympic squad point to a bright future. The emphasis on the youth ranks has contributed to a class of young Mexican players that not only possesses great skill but has also been instrumental at the club-level.   Diego Reyes and Hector Herrera have been locked down for summer transfers to Porto. Javier Aquino made the jump to Villareal in Spain. More are sure to follow.
