    As a Fan.... Season 2, Episode #19: World Cup qualifiers, MLS and Liga MX playoffs

    And so we got to the end of the International breaks for the 2021 calendar year with some more teams getting their ticket to Qatar 2022 (winter), some usual teams confirmed not going (Ivory Coast) and some other big ones that need a confederation playoff (Portugal, Italy).


    This last international break gave us CONCACAF games that made history and change the table. These are the US vs Mexico, Jamaica vs US, Canada vs. Mexico; that now made Canada the best TEAM of the qualifiers and only undefeated team in the region.


    Finally we dive into the MLS and Liga MX playoffs and how these will look like for the end of the 2021 season….. and yes!!!!! PUMAS made in to the first round and plays an out-of-form Toluca

    As a Fan.... Season 2, Episode #16: The Newcastle Episode or The Money episode

    FIFA22 is here people!!! And I have created a character to play in career mode



    We talk about the Liverpool vs. Manchester City game that was a thrilling game and so far the EPL game of the season. This also brought in a domino effect that saw the biggest clubs in other league losing. All of Bayern Munich, PSG, Real Madrid and Barcelona lose their games.


    Talking about Barcelona financial outcome from their CEO press conference.


    We are in International Break. IN CONMEBOL Brazil is 3-points away from qualification, CONCACAF US hosts Jamaica, Canada goes to Azteca to play Octagonal Leaders Mexico. In Europe, this week we saw the UEFA Nations League Semi-Finals between Belgium vs France, and Italy vs Spain.


    The news of the season is that Newcastle United FC has now been acquired by the Saudi Arabia Public Investment Fund, and now the clubs financial backing is 13 times more than the previous big club (Manchester City). Lots of discussions and talks in this episode about this.


    We have another fan email. Our fan asks us if there could be a mid-level team to break the deadlock from the big clubs and win the League or qualify to Champions League.

    As a Fan.... Season 2, Episode #15: This is Sheriff’s world; CONCACAF updated league; and finding another team.

    Let’s start talking the new CONCACAF Champions League format for 2023.
    This new format will increase from 16 to 27 teams to qualify for competition. It will also create two new Qualifier Cups to give teams in Caribbean and Central American countries more chances to compete in the biggest club competition in this area. It also gives Canadian teams, not in MLS, a chance to participate. But also half of the 27 teams are from LigaMX and MLS automatic spots.


    What a week!!! Shocker games with upsets, goals overload in some games, BIG teams loosing, big players showing up, and overall a good Champions League week.

    We have another fan email. Our fan asks us about the Bi-Annual World Cup and reasons why that is, or is not, happening. Their second question is about a World Champions League Tournament and it would make sense.


    Finally another of our listeners, Alex, reached out to help them find a team.

Jaime and Dan’s enthusiasm for soccer is genuine, and every week they get me pumped about the goings-on in all of the major leagues! Plus, they have really good taste in beer.
