Seven is a strange number, supposedly the Earth was built in seven days, it’s the number Raúl played with at Real Madrid and the number Ronaldo couldn’t wait to grab once Raúl exited Real Madrid… it’s the number Ghiggia played with for Uruguay, seven is the amount of goals Germany scored on Brazil during the 2014 World Cup and on June 20th, seven will be the number of years LCB […]
The Copa America Centenario begins tonight for Uruguay, when Uruguay face Mexico at the University of Phoenix. I’m not sure if it’s the same cheesy Online University where people get their bullshit online degrees, so they can say they finished their schooling and what have you, should I maybe look into it some more? Nah fuck it, who cares! Anyway I have to confess, I haven’t been watching any of […]
Barcelona won La Liga yesterday and Luis Suárez captured the elusive but most rewarding Pichichi (top goal-scorer) title. I’m not really one for statistics and I could be wrong but Suárez becomes only the third Uruguayan to capture the Pichichi after current Manya manager Jorge Da Silva did it in the early 80’s and Diego Forlán did it with Atlético Madrid last decade.
Just when we thought we saw the last of El Equipo De Memoria, the EDM is back, re-configured and re-imagined for 2016. The EDM arrives just in time to partake in another tournament.

Its that time of the year when there’s not much happening and I gotta go away for awhile. Yeah… I know, but that’s the kind of guy I have to be.
Ya lo anticipamos y aquí lo tienen, reaparece el LCB podcast. En esta fecha tocamos varios temas, los dos últimos partidos de eliminatorias de la Celeste. Al demorar la grabación de este episodio, el caso Suárez-Fonseca pone en entredicho la honradez de los involucrados, también hablamos del escándalo internacional llamado “Panama Papers”. Concluimos el audio hablando de Peñarol y su nuevo estadio. El que quiera escuchar cómo manejamos los temas, […]
The last time the World saw Luis Suárez was in the 2014 World Cup, which was held in Brazil (in case anyone forgot that)… that Suárez would make his “official” return against Brazil in Brazil of all places shouldn’t go unnoticed. Suárez returned, scored and almost gave Uruguay the victory, but I was more impressed by El Maestro’s reshuffling of the coconuts in the second half, the insertion of Tata […]
We all knew going into these next Qualifier matches that Diego Godín and Mono Pereira wouldn’t be available for the first match against Brazil. And we all knew Martín Cáceres wouldn’t be available at all for the next two matches. So with three-thirds of Uruguay’s defensive back-line missing in action, change was expected. However in the span of just 2 days, change turned into a cold sweat nightmare, the Uruguayan […]
