Episode 134: The title race takes shape, Argentina’s draw in Romania & a lower division chat

In the hundred-and-thirty-fourth episode of Hand Of Pod, Sam is joined by Peter, English Dan and Andrés, as well as Gustavo Malamud, an Atlanta fan. We discuss another double round of matches – we’re a third of the way through the Torneo Final already – in which it was a decent week for Colón and Newell’s Old Boys among others, a poor one for Racing (obviously) and Arsenal, and a more mixed one for other sides, including the two giants River Plate and Boca Juniors. We consider where the Argentine national side are in relation to where they’d like to be ahead of the World Cup, Gustavo gives us a primer on the Primera B – that’s the THIRD division – and we reveal what this season’s English Premier League relegation battle would look like if the Football Association decided to adopt the Argentine relegation system (many thanks to Tim Venables for that!).

Mystic Sam’s seventh round predictions are below. Don’t forget, you can subscribe to us on iTunes here – and starting this week, Android and iOS users can also subscribe on Stitcher. You’ll find our page here. And please, if you like us, leave a review on either service!
