Podcasting solo, Yo mero, @beto_atx took quick half hour to talk about the latest Mexican Soccer news. I give my takes on the recent LA Times article of Mexican American soccer youth, Chucky in UCL, Tigres winning molero cup, the upcoming Jornada 10 and random Twitter comments.
The gents, once again, gather around the Cantina and discuss the Mexico friendly in San Antonio and some of the odd occurrences, like Gio’s best offseason ever, Alanis starting for Mexico but not even playing for Chivas, and more! We have some good sound clips from Juan Carlos Osorio disagreeing with the Gio hate.
We also get schooled on the recent #TuzoGate controversy, by Ronaldo. Interesting happenings going on in Pachuca. You will want to tune into this one!
We also discuss some Chivas crisis/drama news and other random topics.
Tomorrow evening the Mexican national team will take on Senegal in Miami, Florida. The players called up for both Mexico and Senegal, are not be 1st string National team players. No Chicharito, No Andres Guardado. We do get to see some young and up and coming players. The two goal scorers vs Honduras Jurgen Damm will be there but Javier Aguino, will not due to injury.
Some good young players will get to show their worth. Chucky Lozano, Carlos Salcedo, Erick Gutierrez and others will get a chance. So while many say that a visit to the Mall will be among one of the highlights of this visit to Miami, some of these players will be fighting to impress. They will be looking to show Osorio that they can “aprovech” their opportunity with El Tri and deserve a future call up in a more critical game.
There will be haters, however. Many call this game a waste of time. They question the Marlin’s Park promotion, as one in particular has pictures of 1st team players such as Chicharito, Guardado and Oribe. It is hard to think that Mexicans will go to the stadium to watch this game not knowing that it is not a FIFA date and these players will not actually be there. Futbol passion is strong, however, so the fan showing may still be solid. However, I am not sure how big a Mexican community exists in the Miami area.
The epic hater award for this particular game, goes to the great Carlos Albert. Formerly from Futbol Picante, he gives his take on the FMF and the use of the national team. He calls it straight up prostituting the National Team, for financial benefits. The FMF being the Pimp daddy counting the dollars after the players attract the fans.
Have a listen to his take, and sorry for the vertical video. 😀
