Episode 69 of Hand Of Pod sees Sam, Australian Dan and Joel joined by Christian, a Brazilian who exudes a quiet academic authority over the podcast. He’s writing a thesis on us. Sort of. We discuss our various holidays briefly, before diving into what we can remember (and mis-remember) of the last couple of weeks, including Juan Román Riquelme’s decision to leave Boca Juniors, River Plate’s excellent transfer market moves so far, Maxi Rodríguez’s return to Newell’s Old Boys and a rather inexpert guide to Córdoba’s football culture (you can tell we live in Buenos Aires). All this and much more!
