Federación Mexicana de Fútbol.


Federación Mexicana de Fútbol.

The Mexican football federation was founded in 1927. It is part of the Caribbean, North and Central America confederation (CONCACAF) which is a member of FIFA.

Football was introduced in Mexico at the end of the 19th century by groups of English men that were working on mines. In 1900 the first team appeared in Pachuca.

The first championship was in 1902 and most of the teams were composed of English men.

In the 1920’s the first Mexican team emerged.

The first national team was formed in 1923 and the first official participation was in Amsterdam at the 1928 Olympics. Spain beat Mexico 7 to 1.

The first professional league started in 1943.

The most recent scandal the Mexican team has been a part of is the kick of their karate master manager (former Atletico de Madrid manager).

There is so much corruption in the Mexican Football federation. I heard players are paying their agents, who in return bribe some of the heads in the Federation so player can be add to the national team selection list. Is that true?

Joel Rojo has discovered the General Forums. God help us.Joel Rojo has discovered the General Forums. God help us.

It's hard to say what exactly, if anything, is happening, but many serious reporters (and many quacks and attention whores) report that our football is managed by the agents.

More exactly: Our football is managed by the directors of the teams in our top flight: Primera División. This is public and well known, with the biggest media corporation owning at any given time two or three of the eighteen teams. The second biggest media also owns one or two teams, the exact ammounts depending on relegation, negotiations, and the like.

So you have a small group of people, say 18, one for every team on the top flight. Some don't really matter, as they represent newcoming or minor teams, so you end up with a few less, say, 12 people. Of these twelve, some represent the same corporations, so you end up with about 8. Align this handful of guys in a couple of power groups, which are in cahoots anyway (Cahoots, I tell you!) and you start to get an idea of how things work around here.

But, not really, because there are a couple other dudes who actually have more influence. The agents, which are referred here to as the Promotores.

But not any promotor has this degree of influence, if any. There are only two with real power: Guillermo Lara, and mostly, Carlos Hurtado.

This couple of guys run our football like the fucking mafia. It's been reported that they have their hands in as much as 80% of the transfers, including those of managers, and get slices of the transfer fees ranging from 10% to even 40%!

How do they get away with this? Because they don't just represent people, there promotores often OWN them. They will appoint a manager to a team, and tell them which players they are going to get. Famous cases are those of Manuel Lapuente and Luis Fernando Tena, and how it leaked to the press that for years or decades Carlos Hurtado ran Cruz Azul, a huge team here in Mexico, and almost managed to run it into the ground. He did the same for América, Tigres, and others.

They don't just get you jobs either. They can keep you from them. Lara, the other famous promotor, has been keeping a famous and talented coach, Tomas Boy, out of work for years, because Boy fired one of Lara's players.

So a couple of promotores, and a couple of owners/directives of teams run every aspect of our football. Scheduling, the kind of tournament we will have (a simple league? a league with a little tournament at the end? maybe you want to have a couple of teams that didn't get in to play anyway, you name it and you have it!), who plays in the national side.

Even the head of the Federation is appointed by this people. It's mind boggling.

In short: A couple of dudes decide everything according to their own interests, and then appoint federatives, players, managers, and even press members to suit their needs. Next thing you know, Mexico's place in the South Africa world cup is severely compromised and everyone's going apeshit.

This certainly does not sound true at all. All the players currently on the national team are there because they earned it. There is no players nor have I seen players during my existence who did not deserve to be in the Mexican national team. One exception would be Rafael "Chiquis" Garcia who went to 2006 world cup because he was banging Ricardo Lavolpes daughter. That was quite frankly pathetic, he took him instead of Cuahutemoc Blanco or Jaime Lozano. Though Lavolpe hated Blanco and vice versa so I guess Lavolpe got the last laugh.

Anyways. Our National team right now that is going to the World Cup has the speed and counter attacking that I haven't seen in a long time. We got Andres Guardado from Deportivo La Coruna who plays winger, or side midfielder. He has pretty decent pace, and dribbling as well as a hell of a shot. We got the speed of Giovanni dos Santos and Carlos Vela up front. Although they aren't no Walcotts in terms of speed, they offer quite a different pace then what we had in 06. Let me not forget, Alberto Medina, who is also pretty quick and likes to take on defenders and do feints and what not.

We got a young center forward who is just a fox in the box by the name of Javier Hernandez. Behind him we have the playmaking talent of Cuahutemoc Blanco and Adolfo Bautista. Both of these guys offer experience (especially Blanco) and have the ability to put pause in the game and dish out dangerous passes.

I see a problem in our center midfielders though, and defensive midefielders. We got Torrado but he has never cut it for me. Jonathan dos Santos is not cut out for it either just yet. Same goes for Adrian Aldrete and well Israel Castro I have never seen anything special in him.

As for our defense, I think we have a pretty solid defensive line. Marquez is always a solid bet in leading the defense. We got Efrain Juarez who I have no doubt in my mind will go play in europe sooner or later. This guy is young, has speed, condition, skill, and heart. He is better than Salcido or any side back on the list. Hector Moreno from AZ Alkmaar is also very good in the middle as a center back. I am not quite convinced by people like Jorge Torres Nilo, Maza Rodriguez, or Paul Aguilar though. Osorio is a good right back so I am glad he made the list, he deserves a spot.

As for our goalkeepers, I am quite dissapointed that Jose de Jesus Corona is not on the list. Hes always been the best for me, above Ochoa or anyone. Of the current 3 selected I think Michel needs to be the starter.

Speaking of goalkeepers, I recentley went to Latin America (Dominican Repupublic to exact) and the majority of the football they showed was Mexican, However all they seemed to show was highlights of Guillemo Ochoa making mistakes and generally taking the piss.

Wussup with that?

Ochoa is horrible, I don't know how he is considered to be one of the top goalkeepers in the league. America CF fanboys think of him like a god, he doesn't deserve to be a starter to be honest. Like I mentioned, of the ones selected Michel needs to be starting, would of liked to see JJ Corona on the list, he is so underrated. Heck, Oswaldo Sanchez from 06 world cup deserves to be there instead of Ochoa or Perez. Managers have their favorites though, and they will stick with em.

And what can I say of replays of ochoa messing up being shown in dominican republic, if its one of their local tv stations doing it then well its pretty safe to say it has something to do with their hate towards Mexico. This hate goes beyond sports though, mostly everyone if not everyone in South and Central America hate Mexico as a whole. Its just how it is and has always been, they both fear us a bit and hate us at the same time. Argentinians hate us the most, they view the Mexican people as inferior because they (Argentinians) have more european blood. I would say the only countries in South America that do like Mexico would be Brazil and Paraguay and maybe Uruguay.

Thursday June3 2010 Pre-World Cup friendly
Mexico 2 - 1 Italy

Mexico played really good, they worked the Italians all day long. What I found interesting is that despite the subs, Mexico still played at the same pace and the subs got right into the rhythm.

Unfortunately, the ever existing problem of set pieces got Italy's goal. I don't get it whats so fuking hard about defending set pieces? I understand we Mexicans are not the tallest of races but for god sakes put some freaking balls in it! Ponganse verga!

We could of scored 2 more goals easily but Chicharito Hernandez missed one oh so horribly and Barrera could of scored one as well but doubted and opted for a bad option.
