Episode 11: Argentine club ownership, racism, & Agüero’s national team issues

In the eleventh episode of Hand Of Pod, Sam, Seba and English Dan discuss the last decade or so of Racing Club’s history, and what it says about club ownership issues in Argentina. They also tackle the thorny issue of racism in the country’s stadia, and talk about some of the possible reasons for Sergio Agüero being overlooked again by national team manager Sergio Batista. Aussie Dan, a.k.a. Mystic Dan, is off getting drunk in Mendoza this week, but managed to put down his wine glass for long enough to send us his predictions for the coming weekend.
