Episode 33: Argentina v Brazil mini-preview, Ramón Díaz comes in at Independiente & more

The thirty-third episode of Hand Of Pod goes online just before the first leg of the double-header between Argentina’s and Brazil’s ‘domestic international’ teams, and Sam, Dan and Dan look at what Alejandro Sabella might reveal in these matches. We also speculate on how well former Oxford United boss Ramón Díaz will do in charge of Independiente, discuss bearded footballers (inspired by Diego Villar of Godoy Cruz) and give a thoroughly well-considered zoological discussion of the upcoming clash between joint-top of the table sides Lanús and Boca Juniors. The stupidity of Racing’s Colombian players in their goal celebrations is criticised, and we liken Racing to a herd of wildebeest. If the producers of the Discovery Channel are listening this week, do get in touch.
