Episode 140: Managers making foolish declarations & Argentine Libertadores hopes

Episode 140 of Hand Of Pod sees Sam, English Dan, Andrés and Peter welcome not one but two special guests – Jonathan Wilson returns to HOP and Rupert Fryer finally makes his long-awaited debut. We discuss Ramón Díaz and Ricardo Caruso Lombardi embarrassing themselves to varying degrees, two managerial changes, as Newell’s Old Boys and more surprisingly, Arsenal de Sarandí both changed bosses, consider the title race and the relegation battle and ask how Argentine sides will do in the Copa Libertadores – four of Argentina’s five representatives are in the knockout stage, with only Newell’s failing to get out of their group. We also look at whether Fernando Gago’s injury is really bad news for either Boca Juniors or Argentina, and have a bit of a laugh at Racing, who’ve been rubbish again lately.
