Liga MX to Save My Mental Health

It has been one week since the painful Mexico elimination from the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Like a gullible woman who tells herself that her cheating boyfriend will be faithful this time around, I believed that Mexico would reach the quarterfinals of a World Cup (and maybe even beyond). And like this hypothetical women, I was left heartbroken, and hating myself for believing.

The World Finally Sees What I See

Mexico completed its standard World Cup participation in Brazil, a Round of 16 exit. They played quality football and made the masses believe that it was possible to surpass the norm, and right at the moment of truth fail to come up with the result.

Some might say that the standard participation was great based on the terrible year ‘El Tri’ had in 2013. But to be honest, another Round of 16 exit to me is another four years thrown away. It really doesn’t matter how well you play if you cannot get the result you need.

The Five Under-the-Radar Facets of Mexico's World Cup

Getting off to a strong start in this World Cup was always a possibility for El Tri - just not one that seemed very likely. I dare not rehash the tales of woe that constituted the qualifying campaign or the statistics on the numbers of managers that were in place. I will just say that Mexico have turned it on when it was most needed.

World Cup Predictions

At long last , it's finally here. Years of preparation and endless debate over starting elevens had led us to the brink. Whether Mexico stands on the precipice of a disastrous fall, a glorious run of victories, or the usual round of 16 exit we don't really know.

Although, we do have some ideas. We polled some of our favorite writers with knowledge of El Tri to give us their thoughts ...

Friendly Choices

June is coming. A trip to Brazil and the pressure of the world's biggest tournament will also come in quick succession for the Mexican National Team. Like an impending storm, the World Cup won't wait for El Tri to be ready.

The Away Goal Final

The grand finale of the Liga MX kicks off once again tonight with the defending champion Leon facing the Tuzos of Pachuca. This anticipated match-up pits two teams with a vastly different temperament. The obvious juxtaposition of the consistent force of Leon and the flamboyant wild-card of Pachuca make for a final of intrigue. Coming up with a clear picture of how these 180 minutes will play out is a near impossibility. This could go plenty of different ways.
