Episode 386: No longer a prisoner. RIP Diego Maradona

If you’re listening to this podcast in the week it comes out, you know what it’s about. On Wednesday 25th November 2020, Diego Maradona died. In this week’s HOP Sam, English Dan, Santi, Tony, Andrés and Seba put aside talk about recent matches for an extended talk about the life, career and impact of a player who captured the popular imagination like few – if any – others both at home and around the world. Diego Maradona, QEPD.

Episode 385: Argentina pick up four points, and a Copa de la Liga roundup

In this week’s HOP, Sam, English Dan, Santi, Andrés and (for the first few minutes, before he gets cut off) Tony look back on a World Cup qualifying double header which again saw Argentina look a bit iffy at home but impress away, before reviewing the latest round of Copa de la Liga Profesional de Fútbol action.

Episode 384: the tenth anniversary episode

At the end of this week, HOP turns ten years old, and we’re celebrating with a bumper episode. Sam, English Dan, Tony, Andrés and Santi review the recent action from the Copa Sudamericana and Copa de la Liga Profesional de Fútbol, consider the thorny issue of how clubs should deal with players awaiting trial in a country with a legal system which moves as slowly as Argentina’s and bid farewell to Fernando Gago, who announced his retirement shortly before we recorded. We also look forward to Argentina’s upcoming World Cup qualifying double header and look back on our favourite memories of Argentine football (and the podcast) over the last decade.

Episode 383: Argentine football is BACK!

It’s been a long, long lockdown here in Buenos Aires, but last weekend Argentine domestic football finally returned, and in this week’s episode Sam, English Dan, Tony, Andrés and Santi look back on the first weekend of the Copa de la Liga Profesional de Fútbol, a mini-tournament for the top flight clubs which will keep us entertained (after a fashion) for the next couple of months. We also discuss the Copa Sudamericana and the national team.
