    Not sure but it sure as hell seems like it.

    My criticisms of LigaMX are 99.9% because their business practices and sporting practices are holding our NT back. I get its not the responsibility of the league to improve or help the NT but we don't have the mechanism to hold them accountable to improve the NT if we defend them and say solo en Mexico...

    But keep on thinking that those of us criticizing FMF/LigaMX are criticizing just because we're Euro Lovers.

    News flash: Some of us believe that FMF have the resources to bring us to the next level internationally but are hindered by their clout that puts profits above all else.

    Keep mocking the critics as anti-LigaMX tho.

    I love Liverpool FC and Chicago Bears but neither means dick to me because our NT is my first and only love... Like Kristen...

    That means I will criticize anyone or anything who I think is holding it back... And anyone who is paying attention knows FMF is as much a cause for its failures as it is responsible for its successes...
    All of that DNNQNLIGAmX nonsense are peeps who put clubs and league before NT...

    No. Some FAs can make profit while helping NT. Mexico hasn't figured out how...

    Here's the kicker. Some FAs have leadership that is independent of league structure. Call this a form of separation of powers...

    FMF power is derived by club owners... there is no check or balance of power unlike English or German FA. Sure, they're still capable of corruption as we see with Saudi takeover of Newcastle United but the structure still has some checks and balances. Comparatively FMF has none and even if they did, would they enforce?

    This reply is the definition of complacency.

    The game changes and don't act like we haven't been fortunate to get to round of 16 on some occasions. 2006 and 2018 are great examples...

    Either way, we have the resources to do better. I think we should be doing better. if Turkey can make one Semifinal not on their home soil, we should make the QFs more than twice ever given the resources FMF has...

    As far as sudamerica and libertadores, some of that is down to shitty CONMEBOL refs. Pumas basically beat Boca Juniors but CONMEBOLAS cheated...

    But whose fault is it that we don't even participate in those tournaments now?

    LigaMX should be in Libertadores and Sudamerica every year but now they're not. Who is responsible?

    I read an article a month or so ago, the article made it seem Mexico was really looking seriously at joining conmebol but concacaf stopped it by going to fifa crooks and telling them to stop it or they lose out on all this concacaf votes. The problem is Mexico brings the money to concacaf but concacaf holds the power with the tons of votes it owns due to all this Caribbean countries. The discussion was Mexico also take US with them and take 2 of concacaf wc spots.

    Had an below-par performance and will miss the next game for yellow card accumulation. Was subbed at halftime probably because of his yellow and to give the other guy some more time because he'll be starting the next CL match.

    He got subbed because he was not playing his best game, was close to a red card and Ajax needed an attacking change because they had to score twice.

  25. Who's your attacking midfielder atm?
    Guti is playing very well as a defensive oriented midfielder at PSV, his defensive stats are far better than those of van Ginkel, who was the captain, but he also has a far more forwards oriented play than van Ginkel.
    So with Guti and Alvarez in the middle you need a true AM.
