Episode 32: Sabella’s start as Argentina manager, Mohamed out at Independiente and more

In the thirty-second episode of Hand Of Pod, Sam, Dan, Seba and Dan have plenty to get their teeth stuck into. Alejandro Sabella’s first two matches as Argentina boss are incisively dissected, and the conclusion is cautious optimism. Moving to the domestic side of things, the role of Independiente’s barra brava in ousting now ex-manager Antonio Mohamed is considered (since we recorded, Ramón Díaz has emerged as the favourite to take over), as is Gio Moreno’s long-awaited return from injury for Racing. There’s an update on how Nacional B is treating River Plate, and Seba goes a bit doolally at the end and starts making some funny noises, including an impersonation of River striker Fernando Cavenaghi. Enjoy.

  1. I just discovered your pod and it’s right on time. I can no longer watch Futbol de Primera in the US and I’m hankering for some Argentinian football coverage in English. I love it.
    One suggestion: Please, please, please get a few more (and better) mics instead of sliding around the one mic to capture the experts voices.
