In the seventh episode of Hand Of Pod, we welcome a new member to the team. Seba García, the creator of the very excellent Mundo Albiceleste, joins us for the first time as a regular fourth contributor to the podcast. Zombie is also present, and he’s not pleased at all at the performance of the kids in the Sudamericano Sub 20. We discuss the upcoming Racing vs Boca Juniors clásico, which will be without both key playmakers. Giovanni Moreno’s injury had just started filtering through when we recorded, and it emerged afterwards that Juan Román Riquelme also won’t be able to play. Mystic Dan has had another go at divining the upcoming results, after only getting four out of ten last week. His predictions are below the ‘Continue reading’ line, but to listen to the pod, just click ‘play’. And don’t forget, if you want to you can subscribe on iTunes.
Also a plug for last week’s Gib Football Show, a Copa Libertadores preview special featuring Sam along with a few other experts on South American football.
You can find each of us on Twitter too! Sam Kelly is @HEGS_com; Seba García is @MundoAlbicelest; Australian Dan (Colasimone) is @ArgentinaFW, and English Dan (Edwards) is @DanEdwardsGoal.
Mystic Dan’s second round predictions:
River vs Huracán
Argentinos vs Independiente
Vélez vs All Boys
Racing vs Boca
Godoy Cruz vs San Lorenzo
Gimnasia vs Olimpo
Banfield vs Colón
Quilmes vs Estudiantes
Newell’s vs Lanús
Arsenal vs Tigre
Teams in bold are going to win. If neither side is in bold, Dan’s predicting a draw.

Great job as always and the addition of Seba is wonderful. However, I could do without having to hear Sam licking and slurping on barbecued ribs, or whatever that was that he was slavering over.
Actually they were medialunas, and crisps, Johnny. The crisps I’m guilty for as I bought them myself, but the medialunas are Seba’s fault. He bought them and then forced me to eat them. Forced, I tell you.
Great job as always.
Just starting to open my mind to the goings-on in South American football (and lose interest in the EPL, Spain etc) the blogs, podcasts etc are all a wonderful starting point.

Thanks Frank! Hope you continue to enjoy the pod, and it’s nice to know we’ve got at least one listener in Australia who isn’t a member of Aussie Dan’s extended family (or my own brother, who’s working and travelling there).
