Amerijuana: Rubio Rubin @ Xolos
what salary was MLS trying to lowball him with?
I don't doubt that Tijuana offered him more money (and probably flexibility) but LOL at idea of MLS "lowballing" a guy who just washed out of Norway.
*Washed out of the Netherlands due to injury
I wasn't even counting that. But the injury was a while ago and he's had two other shots since then, one of which was in a league generally considered to be worse than MLS. I'm not giving up on Rubio as a player but his leverage is pretty weak.
He needs to find a position to excel at. Utrecht never knew where to play him and he just hasn't developed a positional specialty. Being just an generic attacker isn't going to do it.
Edit: On the plus side, I'm optimistic because Corona made it work as an in-between player in LigaMX
Rubin one out in Tijuana: Rubio at Xolos
It's gotta be this. Got. To. Be.
More power to the guy, getting paid for staying in really good shape and not having to do some 9-5 job. Pretty sweet gig if you can get.
Bornstein has 81 LMX appearances in the three calendar years since joining Querétaro. He's mostly been a regular starter since making that move.
@bungadiri, could we get the title updated to this one? Thanks!
I'm all for puns but what if the guy visits his thread here (been known to happen) and sees his name being abused...uh...handled...********!...whatevered in this this indelicate manner? Are we worried about that?
Yeah, that's a good point. I'll leave it up to you, fearless leader. I liked the "Amerijuana" one too, FWIW.
Rubin won out in Tijuana: Rubio at Xolos
(and let the double entendre be our private joke.)
Now that just might be too puntastic to let go by. I like it.
On the bench in Concacaf Champions League.
On in the 53rd min
Rubin is wearing the #35 shirt
Is TJ *literally* the closest abroad you could be?
2 mins after being subbed in, there was a power outage in the stadium.
Played the last 37 mins. He played as a left winger and did alright but looked rusty. He had a nice pass from the left wing to a player in front of the box, who's shot was saved by Motagua's keeper. He got a yellow in the last minute for diving.
who were they playing?
Motagua in Honduras.
Motagua of Honduras at the H-E-B Park in Edinburg, Texas, in the CONCACAF Champions League.
Gotta be some maps geeks on here. Great question though... 4 miles from Xolos stadium to the border. There’s gotta be several lower level teams on border towns, and maybe in Vancouver but I doubt their stadium closer than that.
Funny topic though.
