Episode 105: Meltdown at Argentinos Juniors, no-one wants the title, & previewing Boca v Newell’s

Sam and English Dan are joined by Santiago for this week’s Hand Of Pod, in which we begin with a discussion of an astonishing couple of days at Argentinos Juniors, including manager Ricardo Caruso Lombardi losing his rag on live TV (hardly for the first time, it’s true) and much more. We also talk about the top three all failing to win in the Torneo Final at the weekend, Independiente edging closer to an unlikely survival, and promotions for Rosario Central (back to the Primera) and Talleres de Córdoba (back to B Nacional), before previewing the mini-series of games that Newell’s Old Boys and Boca Juniors will play in the next few days. Listeners’ questions include European transfer targets and Buenos Aires’ most dangerous stadia.
