Questions! Answers! Rec league soccer?
If you haven’t had a chance to check out my video preview, you can watch it here. If you’ve already done that, let’s get to the questions!
@cesarhfutbol Do you play Sunday league soccer and if you do what position do you play? You seem to me like a Xavi-esk type of player.

I did for a few years but stopped once I made the move out here to San Diego. I wish I was a Xavi, but I was more of a high-pressing right wing-back. Imagine Paul Aguilar, but 10x slower and terrible at crossing. Also, always avoiding headers.
I was a central midfielder for a bit growing up, but that was when I actually played everyday and had a great touch on the ball. Any remnants of those talents are long gone now haha.

I’m sure it’s a tempting offer, and I wouldn’t blame him for wanting to make the move, but I can’t see him leaving Europe just yet. Jonathan is doing an excellent job with Villarreal and still has plenty of time to make the leap to the United States later.
There’s also a small chance that Villarreal can make a late push for a Champions League spot, and even if the team stayed in the Europa League position, he needs to recognize that staying out there is good for his national team career.

This is probably going to be a disappointing answer, but I think that it’s going to end in a draw.
A few weeks ago, I would have said that Monterrey is the favorite here but Tigres have recently been racking up points and goals. I think it’ll be a fun match, but one that ends in a 1-1 or 2-2 scoreline.
@cesarhfutbol Top players to watch for on concacaf u17 championship

To be honest, I don’t know much about those players. I’ve heard of the three Xolos players, but that’s about it! I’ll be keeping a close eye on those results though.
For those who want to know the schedule for CONCACAF’s U17 Championship, you can find it here.

I like Edson as more of a member of the backline. I’ve been impressed with him in that RCB position for America and think he is one of the key reasons why the team has done very well in defense during the past few weeks.
I got a chance to watch him play in the 0-0 draw with Tijuana earlier this month. Had a great time watching Diego Lainez, but I can see why there is plenty of hype surrounding Alvarez.
@cesarhfutbol what european league do you think liga mx should follow as an example? premier league,la liga,bundesliga,eredivisie,ligue 1?
— Maestro Barragan (@Boywhogoeswest) April 20, 2017
Plenty of things would need to change before Liga MX begins resembling any of those leagues, but in a dream world where I could decide what the model would be, I would say that Liga MX should follow the Bundesliga. Then again, I can only imagine that plenty of Mexican club owners would then do some weird stuff to avoid the 50+1 rule like RB Leipzig.
@cesarhfutbol are you doing ask cesar this week? I have a question. Why the hell didn't Murillo receive a red for breaking Pizzaro's nose?!
— escéptico terecito (@3umenides) April 20, 2017
It was a nasty clash between the two, but I don’t think there was anything malicious from Murillo, think he was going for the ball. That said, the ref should have considered a yellow for that poorly-timed header.
— Mariano Villa (@marianovillajr) April 20, 2017
I don’t think so, it doesn’t seem like there is a big push from the Chinese Super League to pick up Liga MX players. At least not yet. Who knows what may happen if Liga MX continues to grab more attention from outside of Mexico…
