El Principito droppin’ dimes in La Liga


A Key Pass is defined as a pass that leads to a shot on goal by a teammate. In this post, I am trying to lead the reader to some good soccer content. There is so much going on that it is easy to miss. I hope to do these a few times a week. I will gladly take any suggestions if you find something cool online, send it my way. Whether its a nice kit from an obscure team or a golazo in a random college soccer game.




Mexicans Abroad

  • Everton fired their coach.  It might be odd to place this under “Mexicans Abroad” but Everton were after Raul Jimenez this Summer. Benfica’s price tag was too high and Raul is stuck
  • Junior Maleck keeps scoring goals.  He is now up to 7 goals in 10 games with Porto. He is currently on loan but there is a buy option. This is the 3rd time Porto has taken on a young Mexican on loan with a buy option. The Portuguese giants bought the first two ( Raul Gudino and Omar Govea) and chances are they will buy this one.
  • West Ham appear to be sticking with Bilic but he is definitely on a short leash. Chicharito has 3 goals in 9 games for the Hammers with his last goal coming a month ago.


Around The World

  • FIFA and FIFPro  named their World 11 and it is heavy on Barca/Real Madrid players. It also marks the 11 straight year Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi are in the World 11. Oh, CR7 also won Men’s Player of the Year. Bofo was probably a close runner up…

  • Aviles Hurtado was up for Goal of the Year but lost to Olivier Giroud and his scorpion kick golazo.

  • Guardado’s vote for POTY: Ronaldo, Messi, & Buffon. Osorio’s vote: Ronaldo, Vidal, & Marcelo.
  • AC Milan and Adidas have terminated their partnership. This current deal started in 1998 and has seen plenty of classic kits. My money is on the big offer from Nike but they will officially announce a new deal in the coming months.


What to Watch 

  • There are 4 Copa MX games tonight: Morelia/Xolos, Toluca/Atlante, America/Cruz Azil, and Leon/Queretaro.
  • The World Series starts tonight: Dodgers vs Astros. You can watch the game or just follow @TheStrayGoat as he will live tweet his feelings.
