Episode 213: Boca, Newell’s and Vélez find their feet as others stumble

Episode 213 of Hand Of Pod sees Sam and English Dan look back on two rounds of fixtures during which Boca Juniors almost lost a manager but ultimately kept him, and found their first win of the new year thanks to a goal from Carlos Tevez. As well as Boca, Newell’s Old Boys and Vélez Sarsfield also both look rather better now than they did a couple of weeks ago, which makes Boca v Newell’s a particularly interesting fixture this weekend. Newell’s revival came in the form of a 5-0 tonking of Racing days after being played off the pitch by Central in the clásico rosarino, and Central are one of four clubs who’ve recorded three wins out of three (Aldosivi have a chance to do the same, but haven’t done yet because Huracán’s last two matches were postponed). This episode is later in the week than normal, but join us again next week, when we’ll be back to our normal schedule.
