Episode 55: Crisis in Avellaneda, Dybala the wunderkid, and a live Q&A session

The fifty-fifth episode of Hand Of Pod sees Sam, Dan, Seba and Dan meet again to discuss yet more crisis in the business of Avellaneda’s two giant clubs, Racing and Independiente, as well as how Newell’s Old Boys and Estudiantes were the big winners of last weekend. We run the rule over another great performance for second division starlet Paulo Dybala, talk about the ‘Law of The Ex’, one of the Argentine football media’s favourite curses, and when all appears to be heading towards a most disorganised conclusion, answer some listeners’ questions tweeted during the podcast. This is revolutionary stuff, right here. Also, Mystic Dan’s being even dafter than usual this week, and has actually tried to predict exact scorelines for the eight round of the Clausura.

As ever, you’ll find Mystic Dan’s predictions – scorelines and all – listed below. And click here to subscribe to us on iTunes. We beg you.
