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…

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

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

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

Restoring my weekly round-up of games I found interesting this weekend, by no means an exhaustive list. Saturday WKS Zawisza Bydgoszcz 1 (Barišić 33′) – KKS Lech Poznań 0 Zawisza has had a horrible season despite winning the super cup…

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…

Despite their standing in the table, I’m still holding out hope that Chivas will be relegated.

Unacceptable

Oh yeah, that

Major League Soccer Soccer dot com has a “What Ever Happened To…” piece on Claudio Suarez. In it he talks about his disappointment that Chivas USA, where he played during a forgotten period where they were actually pretty good, will…

A Culture Change?

Ricardo la Volpe got fired by CD Guadalajara for “inappropriate behavior” towards a female employee. Really? This is Chivas we are talking about? This is a team that has a squadron of women on the sidelines that makes the Dallas…

Tedski’s Weekend Wrap-up, Week 2

Okay, I’m including midweek CCL games, so sue me. A couple of these have two sentence summaries. I’m stretching things. Tuesday San Jose Earthquakes 1 (Gordon 90’+) – Deportivo Toluca FC 1 (Nava 67′) Apparently, Alan Gordon only needed seventeen…

Chivas USA (or is it LA FC?) Update

To reiterate the big news: Jorge Vergara has sold Chivas USA to Major League Soccer, ostensibly so he can concentrate on running CD Guadalajara into the ground bringing CD Guadalajara back to their winning ways. Of course, the Goat Parade…

Yep, it’s Chivas. Sort of.
