Then Chivas talk takes over, as they win in CopaMX. Drama on U-20 players is discussed and lots more. Check us out the audio on iTunes or your preferred podcasting app.
The latest Gentlemen’s Agreement has arrived. In this edition, CantinaMX Podcast host John Jagou, and FutMexNation Columnist Joel Aceves discuss the early success from unexpected sources. And the Gentlemen explain the Azteca myth and why it might be time to play elsewhere. As always, the Gentlemen recommend a fine sipping Tequila as an adequate enhancement to this column.
John Jagou: Joel, The LigaMX Clasura17 season is month old, and who would have guessed to see Pumas and Santos near the top of the table, joining last season’s table toppers, Xolos?
Joel Aceves: Yon, I am glad to see that the top three teams are being coached by Mexican’s and they are doing it without having had to break the piggy bank to build their squads. Of the three we can say Xolo’s is the least surprising. They finished last season in first place. At the other end we have the Apertura 2016 finalists Tigres and America having a difficult time as we had predicted.
Matias Almeyda is praying that he can do great things with Chivas, even though he is at a disadvantage as he is restricted to only use Mexican players. Others can bring in Argentinians, Brazilians, but not Chivas. We discuss the Chivas coach’s comments and much more on another episode of CantinaMX!
We go into some deep Chivas talk in this episode. They tied Rayados over the weekend even going down by 2 men. We also discuss the state and level of quality in CONCACAF, arguing that Mexico is on a up-peak and the rest are low and rising. We then finalized with some CopaMX talk and proposed rule changes to the sport.
Have a listen!
Time for another edition of the Gentlemen’s agreement. CantinaMX Podcast host John Jagou and futmexnation contributor Joel Aceves take another deep dive into the chasm of Mexican Soccer.
We believe a snifter of your finest sipping tequila will enhance the reading of this article.
Excellent show boys and girls! We are finally back in the LigaMX groove and we discussed the Pumas vs Chivas game that took place on Saturday. We also talked Chucky Lozano who scored 3 goals vs Leon. We ended the podcast talking a world cup with 48 teams and what that would look like. Check out the show!
We have a new champion after a very exciting LigaMX Final. During this episode of the CantinaMX podcast, we give our thoughts and we hear the multitude of excuses from our resident Wila fan. Plenty of laughs are had.
We proceed to discuss other LigaMX topics such as foreign coaches in Mexico, biggest 2016 moments as well as our outlook for 2017.
This is a post game episode of the podcast, as we talk about the 1st leg of the Tigres vs America LigaMX final.
There is also a wealth of Chivas ranting in this one.
This episode we discuss America vs Tigres in the big final. We argue chepo, again. LOL. We talk about why we are fans of the clubs we root for. I also give my opinion on the failure that is going to be LigaMX femenil.
Gullit tears are tears of joy!
