On the Brink: Week 8-9

Relegation battles normally consist of the lesser teams in the league. The teams are generally struggling to scrap together any semblance of form or possible points. Mexico's system of relegation allows for some wiggle room with this situation. Mexican teams find themselves in relegation trouble more often from their past than their present. Three years can encompass a whole mess of crap play from crap players. All four of our relegation contenders have a recent past of something between mediocrity and pure swill.

The Burrito Wrap – 3rd March

Merry Go Round image
Spring is coming, and with it the conclusion of football seasons around the world. As we pass the half-way stage in this year’s Clausura we take the opportunity to look back at some of the biggest stories of the last nine weeks.


Financial Farce Hurting Image…


What do Queretaro, Chiapas and Atlas all have in common? Correct, they’ve all seen their club finances come under the microscope in 2014.

Higher Education and Jornada 4

When a league sends nearly half its teams into a playoff to determine its champion it's a little silly to get too worked up about any one match. With the away goal rule recently creeping its way in to the Liguilla, the only advantage to higher seeds is hosting the second leg and having the second tiebreaker in the first two rounds (so, basically nothing). Finish in the top eight and you have a chance.

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 ...

Postseason Postulations

The Liga MX Apertura season is coming to a close. One week remains to lock up positions for the always anxious, sometimes exciting, and never predictable Liguilla. With that should comes talk and speculation about the chances of each team and the failures of other. However, it would not be hyperbole to say that this season has had a bit of a stink attached.

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         

Liga MX Weekly Walkabout: Sept. 10, 2013

Torta Tuesday was slain and laid to waste six months ago. It has been stewing under the surface but is now finally arisen. Like a phoenix plowing up through the ashes, the Weekly Walkabout arrives to fill in the void. A different animal than when it left this earth, it does appear to be a stronger one(or at least one with more ridiculous comparisons to make).

The Tuneros of Chiapas

I find myself in a unique position. I’ve now been in attendance for two of Chiapas’s three matches this season. I state this fact in no sort of proud or boastful way, for this is clearly not something that can garner envious feelings. This feat puts me in company with at most a handful of people not employed by the team. The majority of this lucky group probably shares apellidos with the men on the field. Hence, I feel like I have a good understanding of the team at this point.
