What's behind Tijuana spending over 10m euros btw? rich owners?

Antonio Margarito funding it out of his back pocket?


Lex Immers - Pace & power. Holland's #1 box to box player

Feyenoord forum - the place to talk about this phenomenon

Ronald Koeman "Oranje kan Immers goed gebruiken"

Fred Rutten "Feyenoord heeft Immers nodig"

Van Marwijk over Lex Immers: 'Stille kracht van Feyenoord'

John de Wolf “Dat is nou precies de aanjager, het ’etterbakkie’ in het veld dat Feyenoord in dit soort wedstrijden nodig heeft"

Interesting backstory behind that club. The "owner" is the son of the former mayor of Tijuana. Everyone and their mother knows that the bankroll for the club comes from the dad, Jorge Hank Rohn, a billionaire.

Hank Rohn, whose own father was a former mayor of Mexico City, has had some shady dealings and incidents in his past. The most notorious being his chief bodyguard being convicted of the murder of a Tijuana journalist that had criticized Hank Rohn for his drug cartel connections.

Many of my neighbors are professionals in Tijuana that run their businesses there but live on the USA side for the simple reason that it is safer for their families as they are perceived to have money. They hate Hank Rohn.

All that being aside, the Xolos (the shortened nick of the club) need to step it up this next term to stay in the top flight. Thus the spending spree. I didn't get a chance to go to any games this last term due to my travel schedule but I hope to get to one this next term. Getting there is just a few minutes, coming back can be at least 30 min up to a couple of hours because of US Customs and Immigration.

Interesting, as I'd never heard of them before.

Poor season also for America despite the big money signing of Benitez in the summer. Looked a handy player at Birmingham but never found his scoring boots there. Then again, no one ever scores many for an Alex McCleish side.

America has had problems with consistency. They have a few dynamic young players on their rolls like Angel Reyna and Diego Reyes but their mid is lacking. Supposedly, they have put almost everyone on the block for sale. I'll have to check the transfer wire to see who is going where and who America get for this next term.

Wanted Santos to win, but think the ref screwed them over or made it almost impossible for them last game.

Tecos or Atlas for relegation? Hope Atlas can stay up. One of the best team introducing young talent.

Rodriguez, aka "Chiquidracula", is one of those guys that likes to take the stage himself. I just don't understand it.

Right now, the local team here, Xolos, is making some moves to stay up and for selfish reasons I hope they do so I can see top-division locally. That means, of course, that one of the more established teams will have to be relegated.

I heard they are playing Argentina in Rutherford, NJ in July as well. If they are, it's pretty f*cking awesome.

Excellent Homie.....

Xolos grab all three points last weekend on a last minute goal from Gandolfi. With Tecos and Atlas both losing, Xolos are up on both in the relegation table.

Xolos play Chivas today. Man, if the Xolos beat them it would be frickin sweet. Not all Chivas fans are insufferable....but a significant minority are and it would be nice to get all three points on their back.....at their stadium.

Xolos up 1-0 at HT.

Carlos Fierro, the 17-yr old bronze ball winner from this last U17 WC started for Chivas. This kid is impressive. First, he is really, really fast. Second, this kid can pass with a blindfold on. For a 17-yr old, he is also showing remarkably good hold-up play with his back to the goal. Making kid mistakes but barring injury, this kid is going places.

Xolos win 2-0 and creat space for survival in the top flight of Mexican football.
