Episode 211: previewing the 2016 Primera División championship

Hand Of Pod is back for 2016, and Sam is joined by Andrés, Fede and Fran to preview another transitional championship, confusing format, stupid non-existent clásicos and all! We run the rule over which sides had good summers, which had indifferent ones and which had bad ones – where do some of the recent big hitters need to improve after disappointing last year, and who apart from Rosario Central are best placed to break the Big Five, who were resurgent in 2015? As well as this we’ve a change to the Mystical segment of HOP for this year – we want you to send in your predictions, and each week one lucky listener will get to try and beat the score set by Sam on this opening weekend. Can’t be that hard, can it…?
