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!
We talk Chivas and a possible crisis as they lose bad to MTY and Jair gets nutmegged by a canterano. We also discuss America and almost all the clubs in the League. We also discus Leon as requested by Richard on our live chat. The great state of Guanajuato. Highly recommend a visit! Enjoy the episode!
This episode was bitter sweet. We started the show discussing the Rafa Marquez linking to the drug trafficking business. We purely speculate on what could have happened as Rafa proclaims his innocence.
We then discuss the Carlos Vela move to LAFC in 2018. Ramifications for the NT, LigaMX and even MLS.
Finally we discuss random topics to include LigaMX, the definition of fanboyism and more!
We gave the wheel a spin and a topic was decided. We discussed everything from LigaMX street cred, to Neymar money grabbing tactics. We dove into some LigaMX, CopaMX and even the absurd possibility that Almeyda could one day take over the Reigns of El Tri.
Thanks to our caller from Dallas and the many homies on the live chat!
Probably the best show we have had yet. The Mexico loss to Jamaica brought a lot of inside feelings to the forefront. The idea of Europe being overrated for Mexicans to play and doesn’t benefit the NT. Osorio not being able to solve the bunker. Not taking advantage of this “Golden Generation” that is getting older. Even predictions of Mexico failing to make it past group stage in Russia next year.
At end of podcast we also discuss LigaMX week 1.
A passionate episode! Enjoy!
