Gameday News in Short

My tweet of the day:

Too many teams either lost or drawed this weekend. (I'm lookin' at you, MU) Manchester United v/s Tottenham ended in a 0-0 draw, despite a certain coach's claim about decimating MU, scoring loads of goals, etc. etc. The usual favorites in La Liga Mexicana were beaten by teams that would never have dreamed of scoring against the likes of Santos Laguna, Toluca, Monterrey, and Cruz Azul. Well, OK, Pumas beating Santos Laguna wasn't that surprising. I mentioned in one of my earlier, ultra-long posts (the one with the in-depth analysis of La Liga Mexicana's Clausura 2011, predictions, etc.) that Pumas have been improving nicely and that UNAM is a serious contender. Santos Laguna, Monterrey, and Cruz Azul are all great teams, but, like all great teams, they suffer from an all-too-common problem: adjusting strategies to fit the other team's game plan. If you were watching the Atlante v/s Cruz Azul match yesterday, you probably noticed that Atlante changed their game plan three times throughout the game. Three times. (editor's note: their new coach formerly trained Estudiantes Tecos) E. Meza's style was too conservative, and in the end, flexibility gets the upper hand. The game ended in a 3-0 score (if you've read this far, you already know who won). While Monterrey's 3-2 loss to the Estudiantes was a tad less dramatic, it was still upsetting to see the team that won Apertura 2010 hand over 3 points. Another team that lost: Club America.
In other news, Wolverhampton nearly beat out another Premier League favorite, Man. City, but were stopped in their trackes when City won 4-3. I know. Close call, right?

Now on to the Barca game. Toodles!
