Tom Harrison joins to discuss where the league is halfway through its season.
The guys are back for episode 2 of the Chivas Del Norte podcast after a tough game versus Chiapas. But don’t worry, they talk about happier times as well. Thanks for all the feedback so far on this project.
I already wrote about Mexico’s 2012 Olympic gold but this piece will focus from a different angle. More specifically, from a jersey angle. Going into the Olympics, it was known Mexico was not going to be able to wear their Adidas kits but rather Atletica. This was due to Atletica having a deal to outfit all of Mexico’s Olympic athletes. Naturally, I had low expectations.
When I first started this blog, it was mostly to write about El Tri and Mexicans in Europe. I was getting up early every weekend to watch dodgy streams of Mexicans Abroad that were usually riddled with pop ups, it felt good to put it to use. It was a fun learning process and my first stab at blogging about futbol. Me and some friends even started podcasting about Mexican soccer. It eventually led to me writing over at FMF State of Mind, SB Nation’s Mexican Soccer blog. As a result, this blog has kinda gone without new content for a while. The last post was just after we ushered in 2016, some were probably still hung over from New Year’s Day celebrations. So what will I be posting on here?
I’m going to use this site to post soccer related stuff that isn’t really suited for FMF State of Mind. Think more like me finding a kit from a club in the 6th tier of German football that I am trying to order or me devouring the latest Football Manager or a book review of something I am (finally) reading. Hopefully you find some cool stuff here. Now excuse me while I go re-watch Mexico beat Brazil in the 2012 Gold Medal Game.
With the transfer window opening up for much of the world, its time to see which Mexicans should be looking for new addresses. Here is my list of 4 players who should really push for a move, whether its a loan or permanent transfer. For once, this list will not include Chicharito, who has found a home at Bayer Leverkusen. Let’s see who is on my list…
Rafa, Bryan, and Raul breakdown the crazy LigaMX final, the dealings at the Clausura Draft, Europeos, and some guy named Little Pea.
Episode 8 is here and features a guest, Rafael Diaz from MexicanFut/FMF State of Mind. We spend the first segment of the podcast trying to figure out what is going at Chivas and how they can improve going forward. The bulk of the podcast is spent on Mexico’s upcoming World Cup Qualifying with listener questions at the end.
Here is Joshua Picazo’s preview of World Cup Qualifying for Mexico:
Have you recovered from October’s wild “CONCACAF Cup” yet? We hope,
as the 2018 World Cup qualifying group stage will begin this Friday. Mexico start off their WCQ against El Salvador in the Azteca. Although the 2014 World Cup is probably still fresh on the minds of many El Tri fans, the next chapter is ready to be written with some familiar faces as well as newer ones.
