Episode 355: Boca go top of the Superliga, and Maradona begins with a loss

In this week’s Hand Of Pod, Sam, English Dan and Andrés look back on a Superliga weekend which saw Diego Maradona begin life as Gimnasia boss with defeat to Racing. A San Lorenzo slip up gave Boca Juniors the chance to go top – which they took – and Huracán bafflingly decided to defend high up the pitch against River Plate, in spite of there now being plentiful evidence to suggest that’s absolutely the last thing you should do against them.

Episode 354: Argentina beat Mexico. Again.

In this week’s Hand Of Pod, Sam, English Dan and Andrés look back on one forgettable and one rather more memorable friendly for Argentina, and consider the positives from both – namely Lautaro Martínez continuing to flourish up front, and that midfield suddenly looking rather more impressive than it did this time last year.

Episode 353: Boca frustrate River in the superclásico, and Gimnasia unveil Maradona

This week on Hand Of Pod, Sam, English Dan and Andrés look back on a superclásico in which Boca Juniors weren’t giving anything away against River Plate, and consider how and why the astonishing news came about – just an hour or so before we started recording – that Diego Maradona has been named manager of Gimnasia La Plata. There’s also a bit of national team talk.
