Episode 45: Boca Juniors’ title win, more melodrama at River and romantic tales from the Copa

9 Dec

The forty-fifth episode of Hand Of Pod is introduced by Queens Park Rangers star Alejandro Faurlín, and sees Sam, Seba and English Dan reflecting on Boca Juniors’ title win – the media bias, the key players, the impressive record and more. We reflect on Racing’s failure to satisfactorily challenge them, Teo Gutiérrez’s chances of getting a transfer to Europe, the political machinations behind the postponement of San Lorenzo v Tigre and the challenges awaiting Tigre during the coming Clausura. There’s an aside on the stupidity of the three different tables used in Argentina to decide the title, continental qualification and relegation, and we also talk about River Plate’s ‘hilarious’ weekend loss to Boca Unidos and subsequent midweek recovery in the Copa Argentina. We finish with a fairytale story from the Copa, about the president of fourth division Atlético Policial, who on Wednesday beat Nacional B (second division) leaders Instituto 4-1.

There are no predictions from Mystic Dan this week, as he’s buggered off to Hong Kong for a holiday. You can still click here to subscribe to us through iTunes, though.
