Episode 12: death at the match

In the twelfth episode of Hand Of Pod, Sam, English Dan and Seba welcome back Australian Dan from his sojourn around Mendiza and Córdoba. There’s a big discussion on the main issue of the weekend, the death of San Lorenzo fan Ramón Aramayo at the apparent hands of the police force, and we talk about some of the issues surrounding security in Argentine stadia. As well as this, there’s talk of four disallowed goals last weekend in the league, Boca Juniors’ ongoing crisis, and the Argentine representatives in the Copa Libertadores de América.

Mystic Dan’s predictions for round 7
Argentinos vs Quilmes
Estudiantes vs All Boys
Huracán vs Gimnasia
Olimpo vs San Lorenzo
Lanús vs Racing
River vs Newell’s
Tigre vs Godoy Cruz
Vélez vs Arsenal
Independiente vs Banfield
Colón vs Boca

As ever, a team in bold are Dan’s prediction for a win, and if neither side is bold is because he thinks it’ll be a draw.

Their manager Héctor Rivoira resigned today (the second manager they’ve lost this season, the first being Reinaldo Merlo). Why on earth the thought entered my head that they were pushing for promotion I’m not sure. I don’t watch a lot of Nacional B, but I certainly knew they’d started badly and had a generally slow season…
