The Burrito Wrap

It’s time to kick back, eat a tortilla and drink a cerveza as we wrap up some of the week’s top stories.


VAUNTED VELA OUT OF WORLD CUP


Carlos Vela, the enigma of the Mexican national team, has now finally put an end to months of speculation by ruling himself out of Brazil this summer. I don’t know why Vela isn’t prepared to return, nor do I care.

The Burrito Wrap

Empty Stadium Picture

It’s Monday and ‘The Burrito Wrap’ is back with another warm tortilla stuffed full of the week’s talking points.

This week we take an in-depth look at Liga MX’s attendances, before touching on El Tri’s squad and concluding with a word about football kits.

Higher Education and Jornada 4

When a league sends nearly half its teams into a playoff to determine its champion it's a little silly to get too worked up about any one match. With the away goal rule recently creeping its way in to the Liguilla, the only advantage to higher seeds is hosting the second leg and having the second tiebreaker in the first two rounds (so, basically nothing). Finish in the top eight and you have a chance.

As part of a new feature on Soccer Mexicana we look back at some of this week’s top stories away from results on the pitch. These delectable morsels are wrapped up in a metaphorical warm tortilla every week for your consumption. Buen provecho.

The Best and Worst of Mexican Soccer 2013

It was a great year if you support Mexico's most popular club team. It was pretty terrible, otherwise. El Tri was an abomination. Club America were the most successful club team and then managed to parlay that into a national team coup d'état. It was ugly.

Yet, it's the time for reflection and glossing over the past twelve months in a holiday cookie-fueled haze. So without further ado, I give you the best and the worst of Mexican soccer 2013 ...

Sympathy for the Devils

It wasn't meant to be like this. I sat down with the intention of writing the masterpiece of semifinal previews. It was meant to be insightful and full of interesting tidbits on these two intriguing match-ups. It was going to be great.

Postseason Postulations

The Liga MX Apertura season is coming to a close. One week remains to lock up positions for the always anxious, sometimes exciting, and never predictable Liguilla. With that should comes talk and speculation about the chances of each team and the failures of other. However, it would not be hyperbole to say that this season has had a bit of a stink attached.

An Unpredicted Win

Last Friday, I had my predictions as to who would win the games for the Jornada 11. In the opener, I was convinced that Monarcas would have taken the three points easily from Monterrey. For me, Monterrey was a team that was lost and had no idea on how to function. Monterrey head coach Jose Guadalupe Cruz had it in for all of us and gave us a great surprise on Friday with a 3-1 victory over Monarcas.

My Gut Feelings – Predictions of the Jornada 11

It’s this far in the Apertura 2013 and the jury is still out on who is the dominant candidate to win the Championship. Last week’s Jornada was a little slow and below average in my opinion but hey it’s a new week, it’s Friday and guess what that means? The beginning of brand new Football weekend! Let’s look at what we have here for this weekend and I will predict who will be the victor. Hopefully I do a better job than last week.
 
 
Morelia vs. Monterrey
 
Prediction: Morelia
