Sin Cenicienta

Obscured and ignored before ascending to great heights, the story is as old as time. The little one rises up against the odds and assumes a place among the elite.

In sports, we love the Cinderella story. It’s like pulling for the underdog, but so much more. To be a true Cinderella, it must be one that truly has no reason to aspire to greatness. Their victory should seem preposterous.  

Forward Thinking for Week Ten

Week ten presents plenty of interest in Liga MX. Nothing quite as fascinating as what’s been going on in the Ascenso, but still pretty good.

 

Look Out For This: El Clasico

On the Brink: Week 2-3

Two weeks have now passed in this season and no further clarity has come to the relegation race. The apparent weakest squads heading in to the season have displayed the opposite. The teams known for mental fragility have toughed-out wins. The script is flipped from one week to the next.

One consistency is present. Liga MX officiating will be heard. The relegation race is not fortunate enough to escape the grasp of dodgy officiating that infects the entirety of the league.  Two of our fearful foursome were directly impacted this week by some shady decisions from the arbitros.

Clausura 2015 Preview

After the long winter break, Mexican soccer is back! No longer will the scraps of minutes for Mexicans in Europe solely fill the void in our hearts. It's back and ... probably about the same as where we left it. Where we left it was with a complete debacle. The Apertura 2014 final was a mess but a significant mess. Club America took the reins alone at the top as the team with the most titles. We pick up with the usual mess of coaching swaps, massive player transfers and general changes of direction.

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.

The Power Shift

The past several years were marked by a changing of the guard. The usual powers of Mexican soccer slumped while others rose up to claim their coveted positions. That power shift, which seemed to be   potentially long-lasting, has faded away this season.

The Burrito Wrap is back – it’s tortilla time!

 

Puma’s Renaissance is a thing of beauty…

“Football, bloody hell”. The words of Alex Ferguson after Manchester United scored twice in stoppage time to beat Bayern Munich and win the 1999 European Cup. Whilst Puma’s turnaround in fortunes is not quite as dramatic as that famous night Barcelona, their current form is certainly as unpredictable as that remarkable game.
