Episode 24: Vélez’s title, the relegation run-in… and Martín Palermo’s retirement

15 Jun

In the 24th episode of Hand Of Pod, Sam, Dan and Dan discuss Vélez’s title win on Sunday, and offer their commiserations to Lanús. Sam gives an impromptu history lesson about Alumni, the first side to dominate the Argentine top flight, English Dan tells us about an amazing comeback from Godoy Cruz away to Racing, and we take a look at the weekend to come, when five games will be played at the same time due to the relegation situation. There’s praise for Godoy’s Mariano Donda and Huracán’s Javier Cámpora, and we end by looking at Martín Palermo’s highly, um, moving farewell to La Bombonera.

    Should point out that at the end I say those matches are on Sunday 3pm, but they are of course SATURDAY 3pm! Be sure not to miss River’s darkest hour.
