This and more on this episode of the CantinaMX podcast!!
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. 😀
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!
Another great discussion yesterday, about the Mexican national team and it’s up coming game in Belgium. We talked Mexican players going to MLS, including whether Chicharito will go to LA or Chivas. We discussed if an athlete should drink or do things that could impede their abilities as a player. Then went into some WC history and reminiscing.
What a crazy night to podcast! We started streaming live as the CONMEBOL qualifying was finalizing and at halftime of the CONCACAF qualifying and what a night it was. Our panel was shocked and surprised to see goal after goal drop as Honduras came back to beat Mexico and Panama did the same vs Costa Rica. As a result the US are eliminated as they failed to beat T&T.
We had a surprise visit from Martin del Palacio and we talked about the future for Mexico in the World Cup. Also what this means for the US team.
Crazy night of soccer, fun discussion! Take a listen!
In what was going to be a short and quick episode, we ended up going 2.5 hours. We talked the earthquakes in Mexico and inspiring reaction from the Mexican people. We had a caller request via twitter to join the conversation. Joel joined and asked a question on youth development in the US. We discussed physical strength v ball skill and the ongoing question of if NFL/NBA players were to play soccer growing up instead, how would US soccer be.
We also discussed Cuauhtemoc’s visit to Futbol Picante!
We talk the El Tri qualifying for Russia 2018, as well as the possibility the US pulls a stunner and gets eliminated. We also discuss the possible scenarios for WC pods and Mexico’s group chances. We then discuss CopaMX, LigaMX and Mexican club action. We even went back in time and talked the good old naturalized player controversy, and Guille Franco. We also brought up Oswaldo Sanchez and reasons he may be Mexico’s cringiest player.
We talk Chivas and a possible crisis as they lose bad to MTY and Jair gets nutmegged by a canterano. We also discuss America and almost all the clubs in the League. We also discus Leon as requested by Richard on our live chat. The great state of Guanajuato. Highly recommend a visit! Enjoy the episode!
