Tijuana Xolos Copa MX AP 17 Week 4 Recap: Xolos Get Second Consecutive Unimpressive 1-1 Draw in Puebla

August 15, 2017

The Tijuana Xolos have been out of town for 10 days as the border city side has played three consecutive games away from home. Oddly enough all three games ended 1-1. The first was a Copa MX game in Cancun against Atlante, then came two games against Puebla at the Estadio Cuauhtémoc. One was a game in the fourth week of the Liga MX, while the game played this Tuesday…

Tijuana Xolos: Is Milton Caraglio the Missing Piece to the Puzzle?

August 14, 2017

The Tijuana Xolos are currently suffering in their rebuilding phase with new manager Eduardo Coudet. The border city side only has a point in the Liga MX Apertura 2017 after four weeks of play in the competition. The team is trying to re-surge this season after losing some key pieces in the off-season, like Miguel Herrera, Aviles Hurtado, Guido Rodriguez, and Milton Caraglio.  The departure of Milton Caraglio was the…


Tijuana Xolos: Early Assessment of Damian Musto

August 13, 2017

The Tijuana Xolos only have one point and one goal in this Apertura 2017 and the problems are evident on each component of the team. Losing key players this off-season, and controversial manager Miguel Herrera, is where all the problems seem to stem from. “El Piojo” did not leave alone to Club America, which is the problem. The Mexican manager took defensive midfielder Guido Rodriguez with him. The Argentine midfielder…


Friday’s Game is a Must-Win for the Tijuana Xolos

August 10, 2017

It’s been a tough start to the 2017 Apertura tournament for the Tijuana Xolos. After an off-season of high-profile transfers (specially from South America) and a new coach introduced, a lot of fans and media members were hoping for a successful tournament. Well that hasn’t been the case so far. I still believe that this team has what it takes to turn things around, but they will need to get…

Tijuana Xolos Copa MX AP 17 Week 2 Recap: Xolos Finally Win & Score Under Eduardo Coudet

August 2, 2017

The Tijuana Xolos started up their Copa MX campaign this Tuesday, August 1 at the Estadio Caliente against Puebla. Before this game, the Xolos had lost two consecutive games in the Liga MX competition and had not scored in those two games. There had not even been a glimpse of the “dynamic, intense, offensive” style that “El Chacho” Coudet had promised going into the season. All of this changed entirely…


Tijuana Xolos: Where is the “Dynamic, Intense, Offensive Style” Eduardo Coudet Promised?

July 31, 2017

Club Tijuana is off to a nightmarish start to the Liga MX Apertura 2017 with two consecutive losses to start the new season. The opening game of the new tournament was a disappointing 2-0 loss against Cruz Azul at home, then the recent 1-0 loss against Necaxa away from home was not much better and arguably worse. Before the new season had started, there was speculation surrounding the team after…

This Wednesday the United States defeated Jamaica 2-1 in the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup final with a late goal by Seattle Sounders Striker Jordan Morris. While the MLS player led the United States to glory, there were some Liga MX players on Bruce Arena’s roster, including Club Tijuana’s own Paul Arriola and Joe Corona. Unfortunately, Corona stayed on the bench for the entire 90 minutes of the final, but Arriola…


Tijuana Xolos: Matias Pisano Deserves a Chance to be in the Starting 11

July 25, 2017

Club Tijuana began its Apertura 2017 campaign with a lackluster 2-0 loss against Cruz Azul at the Estadio Caliente. The team clearly needs some modifications in players or in formation to improve this week and fight for the three points against Necaxa away from home. One of the more disappointing players on the pitch was right-midfielder Mauricio Cuero. The Colombian winger looked nonexistent in his 61 minutes of play, not…

July 13, 2017

On Monday night, I had the pleasure of interviewing the voice of the Tijuana Xolos in English, Nate Abaurrea. I was curious to know how Nate fell in love with “the beautiful game” of soccer. In this profile, our readers will find out how a Northern California native has become a regional soccer voice. We talked about many topics, some of which will not be featured in this piece, but…
