Episode 349: San Lorenzo win again, River thrash Lanús, and more

This week, Sam and Andrés look back on the second week of action in the 2019–20 Superliga, which saw Arsenal and San Lorenzo both pick up their second wins in as many league games, while River Plate and Boca Juniors also both won, and Independiente aren’t too happy with CONMEBOL. We also take a look at Argentines in the European transfer window, particularly those who’ve been linked with English clubs as the English window closed.

Episode 346: reviewing the Copa América, and setting the stage for the new season

In the three hundred and forty-sixth episode of Hand Of Pod, Sam and Andrés meet to discuss the last bits of the Copa América – particularly relating to Argentina’s campaign, and their third-place playoff win over Chile and Lionel Messi’s bizarre sending off for getting in the way of Gary Medel’s shoulders. We also lay the groundwork for the 2019–20 domestic season, with news of the structure of the top two divisions, and a name change for the latter.
