Hey [MENTION=3255]Javi[/MENTION] and anyone else who might watch Mexican League soccer: So I work at a middle school that has a ton of Mexican kids and they're constantly playing footy during recess. Eventually I decided I had to start watching the Mexican League so I'd have something to talk with them about and, possibly, a better way to understand their background as footballers (I'm hoping to eventually start working as a soccer coach part time at the middle school and maybe at the high school that we feed into). Well, I've watched a couple games: I saw America/Monterrey a few weeks ago and part of the Tigres game last week. From that experience, a few questions: a) Where the hell does a player like Hernandez come from in that league? The games I've seen have had minimal pressing, players with tons of time on the ball, and, as a result, lots of fancy dribbling, lovely goals, and high degrees of creativity. I don't enjoy it as much as the Prem b/c I think it's a lot easier to do those things when you have all the time that they seem to have, but it's still fun. But it doesn't seem like the kind of league that would produce a player like Hernandez. Did he come out of nowhere or do they occasionally produce players like him and I just haven't seen it yet? (That said, a player like GDS makes a TON of sense to me after watching the Mexican League a few times. He'd tear that league apart.) b) What are your favorite clubs to watch? Of America, Monterrey, and Tigres I've most enjoyed America, but I still haven't watched Cruz, Pumas, or Chivas. c) Who are the top players in the league currently? d) Anything else I should know? I'm an American fan whose mostly watched MLS, internationals, the Prem, and the Champions League in the three years I've been following the game. So from that background, what things will be most surprising to me with the Mexican League?
