"The Borg-Effect" - Well friends, after Friday’s exhibition let’s go at it again, shall we? We are in trouble this coach is calling a few new players but the constant “Borg-effect” (for the Star Trek aficionados) remains…
What is the Borg-effect? The Borg as you may know was a strange civilization consisting of various living beings, mostly humans, that [...] http://ow.ly/2OWUx4

Operation Clean Face - New names, new faces… do we actually need a list to find out who will be playing in Uruguay’s upcoming friendly matches against Saudi Arabia and Oman? Please refrain from laughing but yes, apparently, we do need a list to sort this out; a whole bunch of names, some new, some not, were added to [...] http://ow.ly/2OkV1a

The Icing on the Cake - I hope Luis’ comeback won’t mean that one of the younger players, such as Rolán or De Arrascaeta, won’t be summoned. If we take into account their ages, I’m not sure who will be more influential in the next World Cup. The World Cup we should have won was this one in Brazil, which we [...] http://ow.ly/2NOPpr

Just in time for Cornflakes - Every now and then when I get the chance, I check out Mundo Deportivo’s APP to see what’s going on with the World of Luis Suárez – Through them and then Marca, I found out Suárez will be allowed to represent Uruguay and play against Saudi Arabia and Oman. Huh did I miss something? Wasn’t [...] http://ow.ly/2NCfcU

TENDENCY TO CHANGE - JORGE SEÑORANS • Tuesday, May 16th, 2006, Tabárez realizes he has no players to complete the substitutes’ bench in time for a friendly match with the U.S. team. Problems are just adding up: Fabián Canobbio, Diego López and Guillermo Rodríguez arrive to Madrid but cannot leave the Spanish capital due to issues with their visas. Lugano’s club does not allow him to go. And as if all this wasn’t enough, it is [...] http://ow.ly/2NuNK2

Behold, the Golden Calf! - Uruguay will play the final leg of their Asian Tour in the Land of the Morning Calm. Uruguay’s Friday morning 2-0 win over Japan went over well with everyone, well mostly everyone. On paper Uruguay got the job done, the “juveniles” all but De Arrascaeta got some game time action, Corujo played, Aguirregaray played, Rolán [...] http://ow.ly/2N5WPC

Land of Buddha Welcomes New Celeste - New faces, some exclusions, a bit of drama surrounding OWT’s extension were added to the Sky-Blue “guiso” that will make the rounds before Uruguay faces Japan this Friday. We had hopes of seeing Peñarol’s wunderkind, Jonathan Rodriguez but alas he will not be playing, at least Danubio’s Camilo Mayada and the playmaker named after a [...] http://ow.ly/2MKNYd

Los principios de Barcelona - Esto es un email que se le envió a nuestro administrador que está aprendido a jugar fútbol creo que hay cosas que el resto podrá disfrutar también, enjoy! Barcelona pasa la pelota sin curva así el compañero puede pasarla de primera sin que la pelota tome rumbos raros, ellos juegan casi siempre a uno [...] http://ow.ly/2MIvTx

Yorugua's Intervista - Sort of strange to post a piece that involves an interview with myself, which is why I named this post, “Yorugua’s Intervista” (after the film by Federico Fellini).  Para cortar el mambo, questions were asked, responses were given… well sort of   • Nico: Quien es Yorugua y Que significa para lacelesteblog? Un pelotudo con [...] http://ow.ly/2MH885

How do Uruguayan clubs build competitive teams? - Today, I saw Nacional again embarrass itself by being completely outplayed in the Teresa Herrera tournament that’s taking place in La Coruña. They lost 0-3 vs. Deportivo La Coruña (a game that could have easily ended 0-6), and then convincingly lost to a superior Sporting Lisbon side 0-2 a day later. Yet, it’s hard to [...] http://ow.ly/2Lyt3k
