Ep. 90: CantinaMX Futbol Podcast – 90% Rotations free!

This episode we discussed the Juan Cambios Osorio controversial 8 man rotation and barely getting by New Zealand in Confed Cup. Panelists were critical of the Mexico coach, until one, Dan, came on to defend his boy. He did get by NZ and JCO was able to rest his players.

We talked about the upcoming Russia game, the changes in Russia about the GK chant and as well as the hypocrisy surrounded by it.

Hope you enjoy. Join us ever Thursday evening!

Ep. 89: CantinaMX Futbol Podcast – Mex v USMNT talk and upcoming Confeds Cup

Hola everyone! Welcome to another episode. We had Rigo once again, who attended the game vs. USMNT at Estadio Azteca. We talked JCO and his performance vs the US as well as Bruce Arena and his lack luster tactics of parking the bus. Not that JCO knew how to solve that bunkering tactic.

We talked upcoming Confederations Cup and implications for JCO depending on result. Possibilities of winning vs Portugal and I believe one panelist called CR7, papasito! Be sure to follow him and Alan Pulido on Instagram. 😀

Ep. 87: CantinaMX Futbol Podcast – Chivas are Champs! El Tri prepares!

We had a fun show right after Mexico beat Ireland in a preparatory friendly. We had special guest @rdotaye – ChivaHermano, member of @chivasdelnorte podcast and contributor to FMF State of mind. We discussed the #LigaMXeng Final, the Chivas performance, the Tigres sadness, the drama and controversy.

We also discussed El Tri and JCO’s journey and what is to be expected this summer.

Have a listen!

Mexico Depth a Concern, not a Priority

LOS ANGELES, CA. –If friendlies were measured by the result on the scoreboard, Mexico’s summer of soccer did not get off to the most favorable of starts.  Luckily for Juan Carlos Osorio and the rest of the Mexico squad, though, Mexico’s 2-1 loss to Croatia will serve as a much better barometer for what Mexico is than what Mexico aspires to be.

Aspiration:  to be a team that can go 20 players deep.

Reality:  Mexico is a team that only goes 14-15 deep.  The sooner Juan Carlos Osorio realizes that, the better Mexico’s summer of soccer will go.

Ep. 86: CantinaMX Futbol Podcast – Tigres v Chivas final, recap.

This was probably our best show! The post game of a final makes it easy, especially one this exciting. We talk the Chivas great 1st half, then the Tigres comeback. We had excellent phone calls from several Chivas fans, even one from Chivas del Norte podcast, as well as our regulars, Christian, Ismael, and others. The chat was hilarious, with contributors such as el Tio, Serg, and Soccer Nerds. This was a fun episode!
