The referee strike in Liga MX is over, meaning that games are back on. Per Jon Arnold of Goal.com, the league announced Monday that it was going to suspend Toluca’s Eric Triviero and América’s Pablo Aguilar for a full year,…

Tedski’s Week in Review

I just wanted to gather up all the little things I haven’t written about this week and wrap it into one post. It’s a lazy way to blog, but eh? Welcome to How Flair is Punished’s version of a clip…

Liga MX on TV

One thing I noticed when I was looking these up this week is how many discrepancies there are between TV schedules and the league schedule. KUVE listed Saturday’s game as between León and América, but Univision Deportes (a sister broadcaster!)…

Monday Morning Center Back

The most fascinating game I saw this weekend was the Clasíco Nacional, but I gotta list some others. By the way, my rule is that I list the home team second. That’s except when I decide not to. Wednesday Chelsea…

Liga MX on TV

I thought this would be a good week to start a regular post telling y’all about where to watch Liga MX games on TV. Well, because of the Papal visit, a lot of scheduling real estate is taken by coverage.…

Chivas v Pachuca: Thoughts

Before we get into what I saw on the field, I want to talk a bit about what I saw in the stands. Chivas supporters were dominant at Chase Field on Sunday afternoon. There was even a Chivas slogan up…

Monday Morning Center Back

After a hiatus, we return with the weekly feature featuring shallow, I mean succinct, analysis of some of this weekend’s matches. Friday Arizona Wildcats 4 (Haley Silverberg 11′, Paige Crouch 30′, Hannah Stevens 49′, Hayley Estopare 72′) – Northern Arizona…

Monday Morning Center Back

Yes, it’s been a while since I’ve done this feature. What? Do you want to take it outside? Thursday FK Kukësi – KP Legia Warszawa Match Abandoned Things started off badly for this Europa League third round qualifier when local…

Monday Morning Center Back

It’s late Monday morning, but still Monday morning… Saturday Wisła Kraków 1 (Jankowski 42′) – Jagiellonia Białystok 2 (Tuszynski 87′, Pawlowski 90′) Two last minute goals gave Jaga a temporary spot in second place, but wins by Legia and Lech…

Monday Morning Center Back

Did I not post all week? I’m slipping. Sorry. Saturday Harpo’s FC 2 (Campbell 60′, Wheeler 70′) – Kansas City Athetics 0 You know how people say about the Open Cup, “You could have a beer league team make it…

Monday Morning Center Back

Here is what you’ve been waiting for: my totally unexhaustive wrap up of things this weekend, complete with the shortest highlight reel ever. Friday Colorado Springs Switchbacks 5 (Gonzales 12′, Vercollone 25′, 90′ pk, Robinson 42′, Maybin 88′ – Real…

Monday Morning Center Back

Yep…here is my weekly take on the past 72 hours or so of selected matches. Saturday New England Revolution 2 (Agudelo 18′, Nguyen 53′ pk) – Colorado Rapids 0 New England won despite not dominating possession by playing long ball,…

Goat of the Week: Robbie Rogers

I could have picked one of two goal keepers for this week’s goat, neither one of which was from MLS. San Diego Flash goalkeeper James Stroud let in four in a US Open Cup qualifier before getting ejected for handling…

Jon Arnold Explains Relegation

As you know, I, like many discerning fans of Mexican fútbol, have been hoping for Chivas to get relegated. In an article in Soccer Gods, one-time Arizonan Jon Arnold explains that it is actually the other team from Guadalajara that…

The Worst Result of this Weekend

I chatted with one of the visiting reporters on Saturday and somehow Leones Negroes came up (alright, I brought them up). The consensus between the two of us was that it is an easy team to dislike and kind of…
