Ep. 84: CantinaMX Futbol Podcast – Tigueres bringing it, Liguilla in effect!

We discuss the in progress Liguilla in this episode, highlighting the Tigres win over Rayados and how Dueñas is running on all cylinders as well as Gignac coming out of his shell! Just ignore his failed “dab” attempt. We also dive into Chivas and how they are not impressing, even though they have the excuse of some injuries. Finally we discuss Santos and how they are pretty much done, as well as Xolos and how they still have hope in the return leg in Tijuana!

Glad you could listen, stay tuned.

The latest Gentlemen’s Agreement has arrived.  In this edition, CantinaMX Podcast host John Jagou, and FutMexNation Columnist Joel Aceves discuss the early success from unexpected sources.  And the Gentlemen explain the Azteca myth and why it might be time to play elsewhere.  As always, the Gentlemen recommend a fine sipping Tequila as an adequate enhancement to this column.

At the other end we have the Apertura 2016 finalists Tigres and America having a difficult time as we had predicted.
