Episode 116: Racing & Independiente’s new management, Argentinos’ fine start and much more

The hundred-and-sixteenth episode of Hand Of Pod sees Sam welcome German/Swiss/Chinese Dan (who is actually English) to his living room, as well as Andrés Bruckner, who makes his HOP debut. Also appearing is Sam’s brother William, who’s in town for a couple of months. Topics up for discussion are Racing and Independiente’s new managers – both have been announced since we last recorded – Argentinos Juniors’ fine start to the season, River Plate’s continuing awfulness, Estudiantes’ renaissance, and the various Copa Sudamericana ties (as this episode is uploaded, River and San Lorenzo are approaching half time in the second leg of theirs). The uploading of this episode was delayed by Jewish new year festivities – Sam’s girlfriend is Jewish – so a belated Shana Tová to all our Jewish listeners!
