Conjetura, análisis, pura estupidez – estos son los ingredientes que conforman un Podcast adecuado. Por supuesto miramos el partido de Argentina y el partido de Paraguay y formamos nuestra propia opinión.

Estamos contentos de que Uruguay esté en segundo lugar y de que Valverde tuviera un debut sensacional, pero también pensamos que Torreira debería ser convocado. OK, estás aquí para escuchar y no para leer, nos comprometimos a no exceder la barrera de los 30 minutos así que no hay excusas aquí, nos encontramos después del partido de Bolivia.
 
Saludos,

After all the crap that Cavani has gone through the last couple of days and seeing veterans liek Dugarry and Forlan throwing their support behind Cavani, it just had to put some more perspective into Neymar’s move. Everybody says Neymar left Barcelona to get out of Messi’s shadow, but his numbers were not even good enough for second best. Suarez’ numbers were better than Neymar’s (data from whoscored) in the years they shared the change room: – Suarez 2014/15 23 goals 17 assists = involved in 40 goals 2015/16 48 goals 19 assists = involved in 67 goals 2016/17 32… Read more »

GolTV mentioned us on TV today, so if you watch the English Language Broadcast of today’s Clasico, immediately after the handball that was called on Rogel, we got a shout-out –––– so we got that going!

LCB in da’ house!

New initial squad release for upcoming October qualifiers! Includes Ricca and Bentancur, as well as young crack Maxi Gomez at Celta Vigo. I like it. Let’s see if Tabarez actually uses any of these players.

Looks like OWT finally got over his call-up constipation. Now he calling up everybody…and damn “el proceso” because last time I checked Maxi Gomez was never part of it. And still including Arevalo to play 10 minutes at the end of the game, I guess.

@433 –– don’t want to float conspiracy theories for no reason, but it could be once Uy is qualified he retires, all these call-ups seem dictated by AUF needs, not so much his call-up policy (players needing to be around 26 years of age, incubated in Europe for 3 plus seasons and part of his proceso). Or maybe he’s realized his team was old as shit. BTW what’s the rule is he calls up a player BUT doesn’t use him in an actual game (Diego Polenta or Gaston Pereiro to name a few)… can they still play for another NT… Read more »

@433 – my bad, Rodrigo Romano suggested Maxi Rodriguez… had the wrong Maxi.

@Y That’s right. I’ve heard that after qualification he will change sports to Nordic Walking. They have a World Cup every year AND no big distances to conquer. Not to mention he excels in this sport himself.

This boy maxi Gomez will be something big. He has a great eye for goal. The next big striker. Poor start from celta but he is second to the goals top chart,4 goals in 5 matches .

Guy’s he looks to be giving some younger guys a chance when he didn’t before.

I’m going to be fair and say I think it’s because the younger guys are doing what they need to do. They are playing well in big teams week in and out. Some starting some subs but I’d suggest all of them are in the first 12 players in their clubs. Maybe before that wasn’t the case?

jkmj

Or perhaps he’s willing to take some risks now that we are so close to qualification…hope he discovers the younger guys make a better team anyways.

Dutchfan

@ Kanga “Maybe before that wasn’t the case?” Well, that’s not fair to all that neglected players way better than some selected ones. I agree with Y, the apparent new selection policy is maybe a sign of someone behind the scenes gradually taking over. Wouldn’t be bad, because, really, there are big distances in Russia.

Wondering if anyone from the blog will be at the Bolivia match. I’m looking into being there and would be happy to meet up to talk about the team in person.

I’m interested in how hard it is for a foreigner to get tickets to a game like that… I live in South Africa and have been to Uruguay only once, but it is my dream to see La Celeste at the Centenario. While it’s not possible for me to come to the Bolivia game, I will go there one day!

Enjoy the game!

@FaFa
Now’s the best time to go, tickets are being sold with a 25% discount ––––– but before you go, just remember the Costa Rica match in 2009, the match with Jordan in 2013…. if you go that’s a big commitment.

FourThreeThree

I must be getting old but that Costa Rica game in Montevideo now feels more magical than it probably was, with el Loco scoring. Maybe it was the almost 8 years of pent up emotion.

@Yorugua
Ticket bought.

Doubt that Tabarez steps down after these next 2 matches. But it wouldn’t be surprising if Coito forms part of the coaching staff heading into Russia due to his experiences with the younger players. But, can’t talk about Russia yet until the team qualifies.
Personally, Coito gets the DT nod after Tabarez retires. There’s no reason for anyone else to coach the team outside of Coito. He knows all these kids and they all play for him and the vets respect him for his consistency at U-17 and U-20.

Bentancur starting for Juve against Barcelona tonight!!

Lazaro
Member

He was not terrible, but it’s hard to judge when your team has so few touches. Interestingly, Juve, with 11 men behind the ball, played like Uruguay does against most teams, so it was good practice for whenever he makes the national team. But my preferred midfield is still: Torreira (Arevalo Rios replacement), Vecino next to him (Ruso Perez replacement), Valverde (eventual 10, Lodeiro/Nacho/O’Neill replacement), and I still like Pato Sanchez on the right, but maybe Betancur or Laxalt eventually takes his place.

Am listening to the podcast now for the first time — it’s great! My dad and cousins are all in Uru so we only really talk via Whatsapp, and it’s nice to hear those same conversations on the pod. Muy bien, chicos! This is the best article I’ve seen about the math: https://www.ovaciondigital.com.uy/futbol/matematicamente-rusia.html Everyone knows that Uru will find a way to make us suffer, probably involving a loss to Ven, bad results elsewhere, and then an early goal from Bolivia in the last game. Someone terrible like Cebolla will score at the end to save us, which will be… Read more »

I was hanging for this over weekend but decided to leave it for the trip home tonight (in 2 hrs)

Should be a good one! Thanks guys.

@Nico – I think you’re piss’d because we avoided your usual topics: Laterales and “What’s your Starting XI” haha…. I hate those topics, I hate those topics and did I tell you? I hate those topics!

– the only guest I would want to bring on is your father, he’s an interesting dude, has some war stories to share!

Aguante nuestro Podcast mediocre! jajaja….

@KC – all kidding aside these Podcasts are made with love, from the song selections (which are usually tied to the the games we just saw) to Jules’ off the cuff humor (which for me is the best thing this Podcast has going) and Nico’s beating a topic to death ––– Nico knows futbol, he’s the star of our Podcast, I’m more like the guy who doesn’t want to be there (joking) … we’re aiming to do a 15 minute version, when we can get our shit together, then we can churn out more episodes, but our schedules aren’t helpful.

Keep them up guys. I assure you they are appreciated.

And yeah, song was great, I didn’t skip it. If anything I was left wishing someone would put that to goals in all our away wins/draws this campaign.

BTW; great podcast again guys

Thanx –

My advice for all listeners is to fast-forward the song, the plan was to get only 30 seconds of the song but Audacity (editing program I use) was more useless than Arevalo-Rios.

Are all was good once, just like audacity. 🙂

Bloody auto correct!

Arevalo was good once… Ah shit you know what I meant.

Yorugua
Admin

@KC – Arevalo-Rios was definitely THE MAN! 2010 thru 2012, but now he’s a caricature, sorta like Forlan (2012 thru 2014) but worse. He needs to retire himself, there isn’t a player to salvage anymore, I don’t think he’s even good enough anymore for even the Uruguayan league –– how he got a spot on Racing is beyond me!

KangaCeleste

Y, Arevalo was a big reason we finished 4th at these world cup and won La Copa.

But I agree his time in the team is done.

However to show I’m not suggesting everyone go I do see a spot on the bench for mono, cebolla and Tata. They are guys still can provide something but arevalo just slows us down too much.

Don’t mock my mate but I think if there is a winner between Peru argies we cannot finish outside top 5. Yes assuming we don’t blow 10 goal difference.
