2017 has presented us with the first thing to moan and discuss about. Oscar Washington Tabarez has given us “los futbolistas reservados del exterior” in other and more simpler words; “The call-up list of players” for the upcoming World Cup Qualifying matches against Brazil and Peru. Even though this is the first call-up list we can still do what we love doing which is questioning some of Tabarez’s decisions. […]
Uruguay is on the verge of winning the Sudamericano Sub20! La Celeste has grown into the tournament nicely, with good football, good defensive performances, and some good ol’ garra charrua (Most notably against Brazil). The main objective is already complete! Qualification to the U20 World Cup in South Korea later this year. This is our sixth consecutive qualification and adds onto the proof that this “proceso” which once started back […]

Teams in South America field; youth sides comprised of players under the age of 20 fighting for qualification to the Under-20 World Cup and the championship itself. It’s basically the Copa America for […]
Feliz Año Nuevo, esperamos que todos ustedes estén disfrutando de 2017. Este es nuestro sexto podcast. Discutimos los premios LCB y Peñarol.
2016 May of been a year to forget because of many uninspiring events that occurred in our world but none the less, here I present to you, the return of the good ol’ La Celeste Blog Awards. These awards used to be owned by the now retired blog legend Yorugua who is now sitting back and enjoying the retired life. So yes, this will be the first Yorugua-less LCB Awards […]
I’m mad and I’m not Mad… If I were to perform a quick analysis, I’d say we wasted our chances of scoring. But I prefer to have a broader approach; let’s see why. Even if we did qualify for the World Cup, we wouldn’t have many chances of winning it because we’re restricting ourselves from greatness. I won’t get into the “anti soccer” bandwagon. I’m mad because I don’t like […]
Another round of World Cup qualifying has passed us by. This time things were not as smooth for Uruguay. Uruguay just failed to get going despite getting the three points at home to Ecuador and then managing to sink to a 3-1 loss away to Chile. Traces of poor concentration and poor play could be traced back to the Ecuador game. Uruguay beat Ecuador in the Centenario yes, but […]
Si hiciera un análisis muy puntual, diría que malogramos las chances de gol. Pero prefiero ir hacia lo macro, veamos mejor por qué aun clasificando al mundial, tendríamos pocas oportunidades de ganarlo y nos estamos auto-limitando. No me subo al carro del anti-fútbol.
