Oh no, it’s a güero!

October 14th, 2010 | By: Richard | 20 Comments

Hello, my name is Richard and I will be the new blogger for the Mexican League here on the Offside.
If you came here looking for the in-depth knowledge provided by the previous blogger….sorry. I’m just a gabacho (if you don’t know what that word means, you soon will). I’m pretty sure the last blogger was Mexican and probably has forgotten more about this league than I will ever learn, but I’m going to try anyway. I hope you won’t judge me too harshly (especially my horrible Spanish)! Any and all input from Mexican fans is more than welcome.
Since this is an English-language blog, I intend to use it to try to educate other folks like me who have an interest in Mexican football, but might be intimidated by a lack of Spanish language skill. So if you don’t know your azulcremas from your rebaño sagrado, and you watch matches on Univision with the sound off because the only word you understand is ‘Goooooooooooooooooooool!’, I am here to help.
I will be thoroughly profiling every league team so you can choose a favorite. I will talk about all the players you should know past and present. Perhaps most importantly, I will take every opportunity I get to make fun of Chivas and their fans.
Only joking about that last bit…I am crazy for Club America, but until the Offside overlords let me have my own Aguilas blog, I will remain as objective as possible about a certain team from Guadalajara.

Apertura Mexican League | Week

By: Albert | Comments 30 Comments

Ok, I’m back from vacation, events and a break. Please excuse the absense. Lastnight Estudiantes played San Luis, as they attempted to get their first win of the season. The game showcased some horrific goalkeeping by Estudiantes keeper, Cristian Martinez. Estudiantes played well enough, however to get the win 3-2. Ramon Morales shows he is still [...]

Mexicans to Retirement League?

By: Albert | Comments 12 Comments

More news on transfers. Rafa Marquez may be heading to New York Redbulls. He is not totally a bad player or geezer yet. He did probably play his last world cup, however. You never know though. He does still have some quality playing left in him, so if he does go to NY, they will get [...]

By: Albert | Comments 11 Comments

You probably don’t care about this tournament, but it is the start of some Mexican Club action. Pumas came out and lost 1-0 to NE Revolution.
Morelia beat Chicago Fire, 5-1 Some really bad play in the Chicago Fire game. Check out the highlights and try to figure out what was going on there. Rust?

WC is over: Player Transfers

By: Albert | Comments 27 Comments

So there are some rumors and near deals. The biggest names that popped up after the WC were Pablo Barrera and Efrain Juarez. Pablo Barrera is looking like he will be at West Ham United in England. This is good news for the daring, and darting attacking midfielder from Pumas. His size may be an issue, [...]

Mexican League Players in South Africa

By: Albert | Comments 14 Comments

Mexico is in the World Cup in South Africa and tied in their opener against the WC host 1-1. It was a bad game for Mexico, yet typical. Counter attack goal. Missed opportunities. Greater possession. Anyway, this post is to analyze the Mexican players that do not play in Europe, but in the Liga Mexicana. First lets [...]

Late Update: Toluca Champ, 2010 Draft, World Cup

By: Albert | Comments 1 Comment

Better late than never. Zinha and Toluca took the Liguilla championship. Both games ended up in ties, but the final went to penalties and Toluca took it. Maybe a lame way to win, but Toluca was convincing. In the penalties, Vuoso, Carlos Morales and Fernando Arce failed Santos and let the championship slip their fingers. Later [...]

Liguilla Continues

By: Albert | Comments 3 Comments

Some exciting Football last night as the Mexican League Playoffs continue. Pachuca took on a good Toluca team and got the 2-2 tie. A bad call most likely voided a Toluca goal by Antonio Naelson Zinha, who cut past Pachuca defender Mustafa, but was tripped up with no one between Zinha and the goal keeper. [...]

America and Chivas draw 0-0

[caption id="attachment_327" align="aligncenter" width="600" caption="Mediotiempo.com photo credit"][/caption]
There's little to say about this game except that it did not live up to the hype of a "Clasico." That goat in the picture? Pretty much the most exciting thing about the game.
I admit, I almost fell asleep several times.

Tigres 1, Chivas 1; Waterlogged

[caption id="attachment_324" align="aligncenter" width="600" caption="Flooded pitch...Credit Mexsport"][/caption]
The ball was scheduled to roll on Saturday night, but torrential rains prevented the game from taking place. The ball couldn't bounce on the waterlogged pitch, and the game was moved to midday Sunday.

Chivas 0, Jaguares 3; Mauled by the visitors

[caption id="attachment_321" align="aligncenter" width="600" caption="Mediotiempo.com Picture"][/caption]Ouch. That one hurt. On paper it looked like Chivas could get back on track against Jaguares. But of course, that was bad to assume. And you know what happens when you assume.

In a non-too difficult game, Chivas beat Estudiantes 3-0.
As opposed to the game against Pumas, the new Omnilife stadium was filled to the brim with supporters. It was "fan day" at the stadium and tickets were going for only 20 pesos.

Chivas Voodoo

Again, I have to apologize for leaving this blog for a few weeks. School started up again, and with that, all activities.

But I'll try to better. I really will try.

Anyways, most are aware that Chivas have not been doing well. They score .5 goals every game, so that ...
