Episode 25: the River Plate relegation playoff special

22 Jun

There’s only one topic for this week’s Hand Of Pod, and we make no apologies for that. Dan, Dan, Seba and River fan Sam try to make some sense of what none of us quite thought would come to pass: the news that River Plate endured the worst day in their 110-year history on Saturday, and will have to play the playoff against Belgrano de Córdoba to avoid relegation. Who’s to blame? And how do the playoffs work? There’s also praise for a magnificent afternoon’s league action on Saturday, and Sam has a rant at Twitter. It’s all cathartic.

There’s no Mystic Dan this week, but next week will see the ‘Clausura as it would look had his predictions all come true’ presented to the world. Oh, and if you’ve not already subscribed to us on iTunes, here’s where you need to click.

    Huracán v GELP…. football’s equivalent of a cage fight. To swing your fist around like John Wayne in a bar fight *right* in front of the referee is the stupidest thing I’ve ever seen.

    (Huracan v GELP, 38 mins)…. The next sending off will be crucial 😉
