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!
It is back for 2017! In this edition of the Gentlemen’s agreement CantinaMX Podcast host, John Jagou, and CantinaMX Barfly & Futmexnation.com contributor, Joel Aceves return from the Delphic Oracle to give their interpretation of what they heard from Pythia about what to expect in 2017.
And when we say Pythia, we mean Paquita, the local bartender.
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.
An exciting Weekend of Futbol has just passed and we discuss the events on a Monday late night podcast. It has also been announced that we have changed our name. This is now the CantinaMX Futbol Podcast. Let’s hope a bar fight don’t break out.
In this episode, we talk America win over Chivas. Tigres and Gignac, back in the groove. Sad flute time for Pumas. Much more!
A late night podcast after the CopaMX match up between Chivas and Club America. We talked about the great game that took place and argued some excuses the Americanista panelist brought up. We also talked cambiarayas and the weekend game with Pachuca beating Chivas.
We even chatted a bit about the NT and who Osorio should call up, the “same as always” players or the ones who are actually playing well right now!!
Some good talk once again. Ron made a controversial statement, as we talked Giovanni Dos Santos. He stated that MLS is better than 50% of the leagues in Europe. Think about how many leagues are actually in Europe. We just follow the top 5, but there are more.
We also talked America and it’s supposed identity of being a big club that buys talent, but not a “cantera” club, although it has had some good talent, such as Memo Ochoa come out of el nido.
We had Serge, our weekly caller, dial in and give some good insights. Don’t forget, we have a call-in number if you want to participate int he show.
Thanks for tuning in!
An episodes full of laughter and mockery of the spectacle that is Cruz Azul. We talked their loss to America after going up 3-0. Is it psychological, a curse, bad coaching or players who just stink? We discuss this phenomena. 😀
We also talk a bit about Giovanni possibly coming back and the quote Decio De Maria gave on the topic. We still hold fast that the FMF black listed Gio and that he did not reject the call up to Copa America. With his expressed interest to join the NT again, and Decio’s back tracking comments, hopefully we see him soon.
Lots to talk about with the Chivas 3-0 win over America. Chivas has high spirits, even Jorge Vergara is saying that they have the best team in Mexico and Pulido is rounding out the team greatness as he arrives this week in Guadalajara.
We talk America and Nacho Ambriz, who happened to explode on a journalist saying that if he doesn’t win a title this year, then he will resign. CopaMX may be his main avenue for fulfilling that statement.
We also talk how this affects the National team and Juan Carlos Osorio. Tune in vatos!
America loses 3-0 to Chivas in the Clasico Nacional. Chivas brings Alan Pulido to the Sacred Herd. Chivas is going to win it all right? LigaMX champs, CopaMX champs, then maybe a CCL or Libertadores? This is the super team in Mexico right now.
As far as America, well, they are in a crisis. Nacho Ambriz is getting upset with reporters, saying he will quit if he doesn’t get a title this year. Fans outside Coapa are protesting and yelling, “Fuera Ambriz”. America is going down hill right?
Calm down a second, big fella. Didn’t Chivas just lose a few weeks ago 4-0 to Xolos? Wasn’t America favored by many to win the Clasico Nacional because of their tremendous individual talent. All of a sudden all this changed? I don’t think so!
Let’s look at the Clasico Nacional. Chivas came out running like crazy, hustling to gain posession and go on the attack. Their movements worked out perfectly against America. Their passing was probably the best they have had all season. Everything worked out, every 50/50 ball, every deflection was in favor of Chivas. This game definitely went Chivas’ way, but would that always be the case. Are they now expected to win their next 5 games in a row? How long until they come back to reality, even with Pulido?
I would go as far to say, the Chivas win was a glitch in the Matrix. An Anomaly. America has the talent to do better, Chivas has been underperforming and supposedly doesn’t have any goal scoring strikers. People are surprised and worried that the National team has to now call the likes of Chivas striker, Saldivar. My question is, who would win in a 7 game series between Chivas and America. Sure that is far fetched, but in the NBA this is done to determine a true winner, that can not just win a fluke game, but endure a series of competitions.
If this were to take place, I would have to say that America wins a best of 7.
Point of this post is that we need to calm our britches. Be measured in our analysis of these results. There are still games to be played and lost or won.
I understand it is hard, when you have people like Vergara saying that Chivas is now rounding out to be the best team in Mexico. Calm down Jorge!
