We also talk US vs Mexico coming up. Good fun was had by all.
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!!
This episode we enjoyed the awesome tunes presented by Club America during halftime of the Xolos game. Their Centenario song was sung by Matute and was immediately classified by many as corny and lame. Then it was discovered that it was plagiarized from the Sevilla hymno. We had a good time echando carrilla.
We had some interesting callers with good questions and comments as we discussed Chivas in CopaMX and the superclassico matchup that is set for next week.
So next week’s show will be a post game show right after the Chivas vs America CopaMX semifinal game. Tune in!
We also discuss the Mexican National Team call up and each individual players. Yes, it is a molero, but there are some interesting players on the list, to include Orbelin Pineda and Jona Dos Santos.
We ended the show discussing players that we had high hopes for but ended up not panning out. Players such as Bofo Bautista, Jimmy Lozano, Pina Arellano and many more were mentioned.
We also talk a bit of America and who is going to be the new head coach.
We had one caller, Serg, and a lot more discussion.
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!
Here we are talking about some Pachuca youth system and their fantastic facilities, then the Americanista on the panel (aka Rony) comes in and interrupts the conversation. A big discussion ensues about if nice facilities are more beneficial than a bigger club such as Chivas or America but with perhaps lesser facilities. Some heated statements ensue.
It was a fun old time.
Ep. 41: Dos a Zero Futbol Podcast – ChivasTV fail, USMNT/Jurgen possession, Messi failure and Copa America.
A bloody good time on the Dos A Zero podcast mates. Ragging on ChivasTV streaming failure and high prices was fun. Guadalajara sound clips were in effect. We also had fun discussing Messi and his emotional retirement announcement, right after missing a penalty and losing the Copa America final. Next time he may want to take a few days to clear his mind and think about his decision. Emotional Messi is emotional.
We also talk about the USMNT/Jurgen’s response to Fernando Regino’s question on possession tactics. We have talked previously about the “cat and mouse” game of giving the opponent possession and luring them to bring lines forward, with the purpose of releasing a lethal counter attack. This is apparently not what Jurgen’s intention was, during the Copa. Everyone wants to have possession, and a great first touch. 😀
