Monterrey clicking into gear in Liga MX

After a poor start, Monterrey are rounding into form in the second half of the Liga MX Clausura.
After a poor start, Monterrey are rounding into form in the second half of the Liga MX Clausura.

In this week's installment of the Liga MX fan rant, I have decided to discuss two squads with two very different outcomes in their recent matches: Puebla and Monterrey. While Los Rayados have slowly started to pick up their form, La Franja have struggled and is looking like the most likely candidate to be relegated at the end of this season.

Let's take a quick look at these two teams and their highs -- and lows -- in the Clausura:

It's about time, Monterrey.

The thing about Los Rayados...

Carlos Barra pays price for Monterrey's lacklustre Clausura campaign

Carlos Barra has been relieved of his duties as manager of Liga MX's Monterrey.

Carlos Barra, the 46-year-old Mexican manager of Monterrey, has been sacked. After almost a year at the helm of the club, the manager was officially let go by ownership after winning just one game with Monterrey this Clausura.

The poor form that Los Rayados have had is nothing new, and extends back to last year's Apertura. Monterrey only claimed two victories in their last 11 league and playoff games for the team last year and scored just twice in the four playoff matches.

With an underwhelming...

Monterrey part ways with Carlos Barra

Carlos Barra was let go by Liga MX club Monterrey after a little more than a year as manager.

A press release on Liga MX club Monterrey's official website announced that the team are parting ways with manager Carlos Barra and his staff.

Barra has been in charge at Monterrey for a little over a year. The 2014 Apertura campaign ended in the Liguilla semifinals for Monterrey, but the team struggled to score in the playoffs and sputtered out against America losing 3-0 on aggregate without scoring a goal.

Despite bringing in some notable signings this winter -- Colombians Edwin Cardona, Alexander...

Five things to watch as the Liga MX Liguilla goes down to the wire

Luis Mendoza and Club America have all but booked their ticket to the Liguilla final following their first leg triumph in Monterrey.
Club America's Luis Mendoza shields the ball from Candido Ramirez of Monterrey during the first leg of their Liga MX Liguilla match.

Four squads are now left in the Liga MX Liguilla competition, but only two will emerge from the playoff battles this weekend.

Tigres and Toluca seem to have equal chances of making it into the finals after they held each other to a scoreless 0-0 draw during the first leg of the Liguilla semifinals. Toluca will now head to Monterrey and attempt to beat Tigres for the first time since March of this year.

As for Club America, the squad is in the driver's seat for the final. Unless Monterrey can pull...

Three Points: America in command after easy win vs. Monterrey

Luis Mendoza and Club America have all but booked their ticket to the Liguilla final following their first leg triumph in Monterrey.
Luis Mendoza scored a brace for Club America as they cruised to a 3-0 win in the first leg of their semifinal tie with Monterrey.

With a dominating 3-0 win over Monterrey, Club America rendered the second leg of this Liga MX semifinals to little more than a formality. It's very difficult to imagine how the Rayados could possibly climb out of the aggregate hole, especially since they seemed so befuddled about how to cope with the Aguilas in the first place. Given that a double yellow card to Hiram Mier left Monterrey with 10 men from the 35th minute on, it's surprising that Club America didn't score more, especially given the...
