Chivas always seems to take the spotlight in the show, this time in failure. We also discussed the Pumas disaster and heard from Lady Puma complaining to 3 players. We even discussed Non Soccer Related stuff like Beisbol, tacos, mean soccer coaches and more!
What a crazy night to podcast! We started streaming live as the CONMEBOL qualifying was finalizing and at halftime of the CONCACAF qualifying and what a night it was. Our panel was shocked and surprised to see goal after goal drop as Honduras came back to beat Mexico and Panama did the same vs Costa Rica. As a result the US are eliminated as they failed to beat T&T.
We had a surprise visit from Martin del Palacio and we talked about the future for Mexico in the World Cup. Also what this means for the US team.
Crazy night of soccer, fun discussion! Take a listen!
This episode we discuss the Televisa, Telemunco TV deals going on for Mexican National Team games. Potential corruption and under the table shenanigans is typical discussion. We even bring back the ChivasTV modem sound clips as one offer is streaming for Mexico transmissions.
Join us in another fun episode!
In what was going to be a short and quick episode, we ended up going 2.5 hours. We talked the earthquakes in Mexico and inspiring reaction from the Mexican people. We had a caller request via twitter to join the conversation. Joel joined and asked a question on youth development in the US. We discussed physical strength v ball skill and the ongoing question of if NFL/NBA players were to play soccer growing up instead, how would US soccer be.
We also discussed Cuauhtemoc’s visit to Futbol Picante!
We talk the El Tri qualifying for Russia 2018, as well as the possibility the US pulls a stunner and gets eliminated. We also discuss the possible scenarios for WC pods and Mexico’s group chances. We then discuss CopaMX, LigaMX and Mexican club action. We even went back in time and talked the good old naturalized player controversy, and Guille Franco. We also brought up Oswaldo Sanchez and reasons he may be Mexico’s cringiest player.
Martin del Palacio joins us on the show and gives some great insight into LigaMX, Osorio, El Tri and more. Martin writes for FIFA and MedioTiempo and is the author of the book, “El Entrevistador”. Much thanks to him for taking the time to come on the show!
A must listen!
