Ep. 89: CantinaMX Futbol Podcast – Mex v USMNT talk and upcoming Confeds Cup

Hola everyone! Welcome to another episode. We had Rigo once again, who attended the game vs. USMNT at Estadio Azteca. We talked JCO and his performance vs the US as well as Bruce Arena and his lack luster tactics of parking the bus. Not that JCO knew how to solve that bunkering tactic.

We talked upcoming Confederations Cup and implications for JCO depending on result. Possibilities of winning vs Portugal and I believe one panelist called CR7, papasito! Be sure to follow him and Alan Pulido on Instagram. 😀

Mexico Depth a Concern, not a Priority

LOS ANGELES, CA. –If friendlies were measured by the result on the scoreboard, Mexico’s summer of soccer did not get off to the most favorable of starts.  Luckily for Juan Carlos Osorio and the rest of the Mexico squad, though, Mexico’s 2-1 loss to Croatia will serve as a much better barometer for what Mexico is than what Mexico aspires to be.

Aspiration:  to be a team that can go 20 players deep.

Reality:  Mexico is a team that only goes 14-15 deep.  The sooner Juan Carlos Osorio realizes that, the better Mexico’s summer of soccer will go.

Ep. 81: CantinaMX Futbol Podcast – Sold out for some lentil beans!

Decio De Maria stretching his hand out only to be ignored. LOL. We had a short podcast this time. We did talk the joint US, Mexico, Canada bid for 2026 World Cup bid.

We talked if Mexico got hosed. How Canada is really happy to even go to a World Cup and more. 😀

Ep. 79: CantinaMX Futbol Podcast – El Tri gets 6 points vs CR and T&T!

Have a listen!

Ep. 78: CantinaMX Futbol Podcast – Mexico vs Costa Rica preview and LigaMX talk!

This episode, we talk the upcoming Mexico world cup qualifier with Los Ticos in El Azteca. Main highlights: Mexico is treating this as an away game. Mexico should play cat and mouse game by conceding possession to counteract the inevitable Tico bunker. Azteca need not be an option with mostly Euro based call ups.

We also discuss the last LigaMX week, where Chivas continues to impress and win over members of our panel. Lavolpe even got some love and I mentioned that they should keep him and resign over the summer. Pelaez or whoever got rid of Sambu and Oswaldo Martinez should be questioned for not bringing back equivalent talented players.

Enjoy the show!

Ep. 75: CantinaMX Futbol Podcast – Special Guest Steve Graff!

This episode we had another guest, Steve Graff! He joined us for the entire discussion as we had loads of fun talking LigaMX. We discussed the Veracruz/Tigres/Tuca sanctions and basically how corruption continues. We talked the Chivas meltdown and how Jaguares continue to play up to their competition. We also discussed the Cruz Azul loss to America. Steve mentioned he is an America fan so we played his special Aguila theme song. Ron was tearing up for his Wilas as well. We also discussed the U-20 Mexican team who loses to US but still beats El Salvador to qualify for the U-20 World Cup.

Thanks for listening!

Ep. 74: CantinaMX Futbol Podcast – Special Guest Jason Marquitz!

Another show, another special guest. Jason Marquitz aka @soccermexicana joined us to talk Cruz Azul and his history following the club. We talked about their current woes as well as those of Club America. Sad times, but we had some good discussion.

We had good participation in the live chat as well. Thanks to all those that participated. One topic of discussion that came up was the personal rumors and speculation of Chicharito and his break up with Lucia Villalon. I attacked Cheech, while others defended San Chicha! We also discussed Tuca’s behavior and out of line statements during the Veracruz fiasco. I was hating on all fronts and the chat group labeled our show “Primer Impacto” like. 🙂

Ep. 72: CantinaMX Futbol Podcast – Live Chat: Mexico v Iceland

LAS VEGAS, NV. We had a live chat episode this week. We chatted as we watched the Mexico v Iceland friendly. In a “molero” of games, Mexico had good possession throughout. Chucky played with ganas, Orbelin impressed, Gio was out of shape and Pulido scored the game winner.

We also had fellow panelists, Joel and Juan, onsite and they called in to report their thoughts on the game.

Twas a fun episode!
