Episode 40: Boca’s huge title lead, police violence in Rosario, and our opinion of John Terry

Hand Of Pod turns 40 episodes old this week, and once again we’re discussing violence (at Newell’s Old Boys’ weekend match) and the threat of it (at Boca Juniors). From the latter, we seamlessly segue into talking about Boca Juniors’ huge lead in the Torneo Apertura, which has now stretched to nine points with just eighteen to play for. Some of that is because Racing are endeavouring to become the first ever side to go unbeaten through a league campaign whilst being really, really rubbish, and Diego Simeone, their manager, comes in for criticism for that. We field questions on Arsenal de Sarandí’s Copa Sudamericana chances, Javier Pastore’s future importance to the national team, and whether Juan Román Riquelme will marry one of our listeners. Sam also gives his opinion on John Terry, who we’re assuming isn’t a regular listener.
