Episode 114: Teo Gutiérrez’s never-ending transfer saga, Argentinos leading the way & more

We’re only three rounds into the season, but all the same it’s a little bizarre to be looking at a league table and seeing Argentinos Juniors on top of it. In the hundred and fourteenth episode of Hand Of Pod, Santiago sings the praises of their manager Ricardo Caruso Lombardi, Sam continues to get exasperated by River Plate’s eternal struggles to get Teo Gutiérrez registered to play, and Joel is the usual voice of calm reason. We also consider Boca Juniors’ and Estudiantes de La Plata’s improvement, why Rosario Central haven’t yet lived up to the promise of the opening weekend, and how much trouble Luis Zubeldía is in at Racing, as well as Gerardo Martino’s barely acceptable start as Barcelona manager. Listeners’ questions include whether Lionel Messi really needs to win a World Cup before he’ll be considered better than Diego Maradona.
