América vs. Universidad Católica

The truth is this game couldn't come at a better time, we just fired our coach. :rolleyes: I had hope that someone like "Ruso" Brailovski would bring back the mistique that this club had in the days he played unfortunately we played worse that before when Tena was the coah.

Now the team is under the command of Rubén Omar Romano and I can only hope that the team starts off this Libertadores with "el pie derecho". We're missing Ochoa, Silva (these first two are starters) along with Inigo and Esqueda; all of them are concentrated with the U-23.

I don't think he can tell them much in one day before the match on Wednesday, but hopefully they grow some melons and start sweating the shirt *cough*Richard Nunez, Rodrigo Lopez*cough*. They're not the only two but unfortunately they're the strikers we brough to score goals but they just haven't done much, nothing really.

The game is at the Azteca so I hope the fans come out in masses with eager to see what this new coach has to offer.

Dios, bendice a Romano!!

River Plate 2 - 1 América

I'd like to say going into the game I was neutral seeing that two of my teams would be facing each other, but as the game went on I was praying we held on to the 1-1 tie. Needless to say our defenders once again fncked it up (Villa and Sanchez).

What I do feel was unfortunate was the players declaring the ref "stole" the game once again, but there was nothing that would make me think that way. We need to stop blaming refs and recognizing we still don't have to team to finish these type of games.

All 4 teams in the group have 3 points.... (:/)

São Paulo FC (bra) 2 x 1 Audax Italiano (chi)
Fluminense (bra) 6 x 0 Arsenal (arg)
Danubio (uru) 1 x 2 Estudiantes LP (arg)

Sad for Audax, who's start winnin' at 63' with a great goal of Carlos "Cabecita de Piña" Villanueva, who's called like a "crá" by the Fox Sports relator... But may be appears Adriano "El Emperador del Gol" and kill all the italics hopes... in just 2 minutes give the victory to Sao Paulo... Last year thats teams played and the result was 2x2, but on this session Audax don't have the same players an it's noted... The lose the great goalkeeper Loco Peric... But all the responsability is of the Coach, who's rewind the team lines after the first score...

sorry "audita", it's the life...

What was the problem with Seba Dominguez, ronni?
Entrevistado en el aeropuerto capitalino antes de viajar a la ciudad de Monterrey, el doctor Joaquín Ledesma, informó que en los estudios que se le hicieron al defensa argentino Domínguez, éste resultó con una distensión muscular en el abductor izquierdo y estará fuera de circulación por espacio de tres semanas, al tiempo que negó una versión que apuntaba a que haya llegado lesionado.

Luckly we get Rodrigo Íñigo (central defender) back this week and we won't have to worry too much about improvising players like Oscar Rojas and Armando Sanchez as "centrales" when both manage different positions.

CF América 3 - 1 U. de San Martín

Dead last in the Mexican League and first place (by goal differential) in the Libertadores group stage. :mexican:


Senior Squad
I think Boca, Estudiantes and San Pablo...maybe San Lorenzo if they get past the first round...

And River, we have to improve in our away games...

América 4 - 3 River Plate. OMFG :rockman:

The game goes immediately into one of my most memorable ones not only because of who was playing but because the 18th (last place) team in Mexico beat the 1st place team in Argentina...85,000+ souls won't ever forget what they saw live either.

My candidates:
1. Fluminense
2. São Paulo
3. LDU Quito (my darkhorse)


Fan Favourite
Fluminense are started well but they're running out of gas soon, trust me. São Paulo are much better candidates.

Atlas 3 - 1 Mierda Jrs.

You guys see what I tell you? Atlas is almost into the 2nd round with 10 points atop their group (3).

Chivas on the other hand has get results today vs. Santos or their out. Last night Estadio Jalisco got a visit from Maradona, today they get a visit from O Rey. Tell me if players from either team (Atlas/Chivas) need more motivation than those particular viewers.

El Diablo Rojo

Starting XI
My candidates are:
-LDU Quito
-Fluminense FC


Anyway, let's see tonight if Boca can make to the Round of 16. Fortunately the true disgrace, Arsenal, is out.:cool:

At least for me there are two surprises and they are Colo Colo and Chivas not making it through the 2nd phase, but it's not like I'm crying over the fact. (H)

CF América is thinking of signing a few 2-3 players to see if we can better our chances advancing in the Libertadores, honestly I don't think they can help much but we'll see.

I think these will be VERY interesting matches...

San Lorenzo vs. River Plate
Nacional vs. São Paulo

...and of course the game vs. CR Cidade de Deus is of my personal interest.
