Episode 215: Boca Juniors change managers ahead of superclásico and more

3 Mar

The two hundred and fifteenth episode of Hand Of Pod is a bumper one, as we’ve got a major talking point this week. Sam, Andrés and Boca Juniors fans Fede and Fran discuss Boca’s decision on Monday to sack Rodolfo Arruabarrena and replace him on Tuesday with Guillermo Barros Schelotto as manager. Is this the change in direction the club needs? Can the new manager handle Carlos Tevez’s influence on team affairs without upsetting anyone? And most importantly, with a Copa Libertadores game against Racing tonight (Thursday) and a visit to River Plate on Sunday, how quick an impact can GBS have? Aside from Boca, we also look back on a weekend which saw yet another great performance from Rosario Central, a second consecutive clean sheet for River and more impressive stuff from Atlético Tucumán.
