Ep. 84: CantinaMX Futbol Podcast – Tigueres bringing it, Liguilla in effect!

We discuss the in progress Liguilla in this episode, highlighting the Tigres win over Rayados and how Dueñas is running on all cylinders as well as Gignac coming out of his shell! Just ignore his failed “dab” attempt. We also dive into Chivas and how they are not impressing, even though they have the excuse of some injuries. Finally we discuss Santos and how they are pretty much done, as well as Xolos and how they still have hope in the return leg in Tijuana!

Glad you could listen, stay tuned.

Mexican Coaches Making a Statement – Gentlemen’s Agreement

The latest Gentlemen’s Agreement has arrived.  In this edition, CantinaMX Podcast host John Jagou, and FutMexNation Columnist Joel Aceves discuss the early success from unexpected sources.  And the Gentlemen explain the Azteca myth and why it might be time to play elsewhere.  As always, the Gentlemen recommend a fine sipping Tequila as an adequate enhancement to this column.

 

John Jagou:  Joel, The LigaMX Clasura17 season is month old, and who would have guessed to see Pumas and Santos near the top of the table, joining last season’s table toppers, Xolos?

 

Joel Aceves:  Yon, I am glad to see that the top three teams are being coached by Mexican’s and they are doing it without having had to break the piggy bank to build their squads. Of the three we can say Xolo’s is the least surprising. They finished last season in first place. At the other end we have the Apertura 2016 finalists Tigres and America having a difficult time as we had predicted.

Ep. 67: CantinaMX Futbol Podcast – Happy New Year, podcast fun!

 New year, new podcast! Ok maybe not totally new, but we had a good time talking about the start of the LigaMX Clausura. We talk Moises and his new life at a poor Chiapas club. Pretty much every America player that has been transferred has not liked the way it was done.

We also gave predictions for both LigaMX and the National team with qualifiers and Confederations Cup. Join us every Wednesday night and listen live around 9pm Central time.

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. 57: Dos a Zero Futbol Podcast – New America Song is my jam!

screen-shot-2016-10-20-at-9-27-23-amThis 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!

Ep. 54: Dos a Zero Futbol Podcast – Club America’s identity and Sad Flute Santos

Marco FabianSome 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!
