Hand Of Pod Episode 8: Tevez vs Batista

24 Feb

In the eighth episode of Hand Of Pod, Sam, Dan, Dan and Seba examine the recent (and ongoing) feud between Carlos Tevez and Argentina’s national manager Sergio Batista – and AFA President Julio Grondona. They also look back on an interesting clásico clash between Racing and Boca Juniors in Avellaneda, and look forward to the coming weekend’s matches, including a big derby clash between River Plate and Independiente. And Sam’s got confirmation of a controversial rumour from late last year that was discussed in a 2010 episode of the show.

      None at all, Johnny, he prefers harder stuff. And in the soon-to-be-released ninth episode, if you listen carefully, you’ll hear him destroying a slipper in the background.
