Ep. 112: CantinaMX Futbol Podcast – New hope? TAS fine. Justice League of Nations!

This episode had some positivity coming from our panel based on the latest performance by #ElTriEng. JCO gets a break from criticism. Court of arbitration relieves certain fines for the BK chant. A Justice League of nations is set to begin next year, and finally Rayados can potentially get a doblete and win CopaMX and LigaMX cups. Mohamed to El Tri?

We even discussed the reason people wait for David Faitelson to tweet. 😀

Ep. 111: CantinaMX Futbol Podcast – In game Live podcast, #BELMEX

We got together to podcast during the Belgium v Mexico game and after a slow 1st half, the 2nd have and Chucky Lozano show took over. While we watched the game, we discussed the tactics, player positioning and JCO strategies. Rotations were part of the convo, as well as a load of other El Tri topics. We hope to do more in-game podcasts, so stay tuned!

Ep. 83: CantinaMX Futbol Podcast – Pelaez, Final Jornada talk and more!

We are back after a week break. We talk the Liguilla scenario and how tight the race is to get into the LigaMX cup tourney. We talked a potential Tigres double failure, Pachuca and Chucky flying high as CONCACAF Champion. We even talked how Atlas is making all the surprises by going into Liguilla near top of table.

We also talk Pelaez and the Club America situation, where he will end up and what is the future for the Club. It should be an exciting Final Jornada. Enjoy and thanks for listening.

Ep. 76: CantinaMX Futbol Podcast – Injuries, Cards, Refs and controversy!

This was a fun episode. We had phone lines open, a couple listeners called in. We discussed the recent injuries, hard tackles and deserved discipline. Can the violence be fixed, are refs doing a poor job in protecting the players?

All the while, in CopaMX action Toluca were given 3 red cards and Pablo Aguilar from America head butted a ref. Things are getting crazy.

We also take a rare look at Europe and the UEFA CL game between Barca and PSG. Historic comeback and blah, blah. 😀

Thanks for tuning in!

Ep. 63: CantinaMX Futbol Podcast – Liguilla Semis are set. Goats cry!

QEPDFirst: Thoughts and prayers go to all those who have passed in Brazil, their families, friends and all affected.

 

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!

Ep. 58: Dos a Zero Futbol Podcast – CopaMX: Chivas vs America

chuki
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!!

Ep. 47: Dos a Zero Futbol Podcast – Fracaso Mexicano 2.0

Screen Shot 2016-08-11 at 9.48.49 AMIn a day of supposed sadness from yet another failure by Mexico this summer, we join up for a post game podcast to discuss what occurred. We know no rustle, well, unless we start talking about LigaMX fashion demonstrated by head coaches such as Paco Palencia and Turko Mohamed. 😀

Anyway, we discuss indepth the Mexico loss to the Koreans, the Potro criticism, the Chucky failure/Ardido moment as well as a couple of bright spots.

We also took a few good calls and comments during the show. Thanks for all those who called in with comments and questions. Thanks to Tomas who brought some good insight.

Now, maybe we can distract ourselves with some LigaMX, until next week.

Cheers!

Ep. 46: Dos a Zero Futbol Podcast – Preview Mex vs Korea

We had a quick podcast this evening to discuss the Mexico vs Korea game. Will the loss of Oribe and Pizarro affect the team? Can they contain the speedy Koreans? This tournament has proved what we already know, that Mexico plays up/down to their competition. The pressure is definitely on for this game as elimination awaits if they lose or possibly even if they tie vs Korea. Many on our panel predicted that Mexico would rise to the occasion and our beloved host, said they would crash out.

Tune in for our post game show tonight at same time!

Gentlemen’s Agreement – Is Raul Jimenez up to the Challenge

gentlemenIn yet another edition of the Gentlemen’s agreement, the aforementioned swaddled some cognac, lit some cohibas, and dug in to a rather lackluster start to the Liga MX season, among other topics.  Pour yourself a cognac and join in the fun.

 

John Jagou:  Joel, Chivas TV made its regular season debut and it was not terrible, according to the 20 people that watched it. I am sure that Liga MX was thrilled that one of their marquee games of the season was so readily available. But it may not be such a bad thing, because the quality of play from the first two weeks across the league, as my high society Spanish friends would say, ha sido paupérrimo.  The fans have noticed as well.  Attendance has been well below average

 

Joel Aceves:  Yon, the poor start of the Apertura, with very few goals to boot, was to be expected given the early start of the season. Seems like many teams are still on pre-season form. My beloved Goats are even playing a friendly game against Arsenal this Thursday. That said, I was trying to track Chivas TV numbers but have been unsuccessful. I’ve only managed to find estimates. Those being that for every 1 Chiva fan watching the clubs stream in Mexico there will be 20 Americanistas watching their club on television. The reports talk about Chivas TV having 500,000 people watching their stream compared to 10 million for free T.V. The numbers for the Tshirt presentation were at 190k and that was free. We must also add that Chivas TV reported that 46% of the people that watched their match against Monterrey were Rayado fans. Then there are the numerous complaints about the streaming qualities with the image freezing and the delayed sound.

Not all is lost though. Chivas owner Jorge Vergara already saidt hat if Chivas makes the league final the match will be on television. However, I am guessing that if Chivas TV streaming doesn’t pick up, as they are already offering 2 games for 1 specials, if they make the playoffs, their games will be shown on Television. Read more
