Episode 445: the 2022 World Cup preview episode

This week Sam, English Dan and Andrés run the rule over Argentina’s World Cup squad and their chances. We’ve sprinkled a little bit of club football talk in as well, but mostly it’s a bumper chat about Argentina and just how little Sam knows about any of the other teams involved.

Episode 441: Two more wins for Argentina, and reviewing the Copa Argentina quarter-finals

This week Sam and English Dan look back on Atlético Tucumán once again rising to the challenge of maintaining their league leadership, wonder which players have made a case for inclusion in Lionel Scaloni’s World Cup squad during Argentina’s 3–0 wins over Honduras and Jamaica, and review the Copa Argentina quarter-finals, which we didn’t want to turn into just talking about River and Boca’s matches … but which did anyway because those two matches were really good and the other two frankly weren’t.

Episode 440: Atlético Tucumán still lead, and previewing Argentina’s friendlies

This week, Sam and Andrés are joined by English Dan, who’s back from holiday. We fill him in on what he’s missed – including several changes of leadership in the league, even though Atlético Tucumán currently lead the title race just as they did when he left. We also give a preview of Argentina’s chances in their friendlies in the United States against Honduras and Jamaica (we’re sticking our necks out and predicting two victories).

Episode 438: A goal from 70 metres and a new home stadium for Argentina?

This week, Sam, English Dan and Andrés look back at last weekend’s matches – which included a 4–0 win with two golazos included for league leaders Atlético Tucumán – and ask how much sense it really makes for the AFA to (reportedly) be considering remodelling Mar Del Plata’s Estadio José María Minella to use as a home ground for the national team.

Episode 434: a busy week in the Liga Profesional

It’s only been a week since our last episode, but this week felt particular packed, with plenty of stuff to discuss both on and off the pitch in the league and Tigre being shocked in the Copa Argentina by Deportivo Madryn, as well as a Copa América Femenina update. Sam, English Dan and Andrés talk you through it all.

Episode 433: Tevez gets his first wins as a manager and Argentinos lead the way

This week, Sam, English Dan and Andrés look back on almost two full rounds of action that included Carlos Tevez’s Rosario Central winning the clásico rosarino against Newell’s Old Boys, and reflect on a top five that currently includes exactly no teams we’d have predicted would be in the top five after nine matches. We also ask whether Rodrigo De Paul’s place in Argentina’s World Cup squad could be endangered by his divorce proceedings, and because that apparently isn’t quite WTF enough, we discuss the news that Maxi López is (one of) the new owner(s) of Birmingham City?!

Episode 429: Messi passes Pelé and Puskás, and the Liga Profesional 2022 begins

This week Sam, English Dan, Santi and Andrés look back on the opening weekend of the 2022 Liga Profesional and Racing’s shocking (but not really that shocking, perhaps) Copa Argentina exit against Agropecuario Argentino. We also talk about Santi’s experience last week at Wembley for Argentina v Italy and look back on Argentina’s 5–0 win over Estonia, in which Lionel Messi scored all five goals, going past Ferenc Puskás in the all-time international goals list and Pelé in the all-time goals in official matches list in the process.

Episode 428: Argentina batter Italy, and the long domestic break is finally over

This week, Sam and English Dan look back on South American champions Argentina playing European champions Italy off the Wembley pitch on Wednesday night in the revived Artemio Franchi trophy match, look at the last sixteen draws of the Copas Libertadores and Sudamericana, and celebrate the fact that the long Argentine winter break is over after all of twelve days since the Copa de la Liga ended, because the Liga Profesional started a few hours before this episode was uploaded!

Episode 422: reviewing the clásicos and previewing the CONMEBOL WCQ Royal Rumble

This week, Sam and English Dan review the weekend of clásicos, which saw away wins for … well, quite a lot of teams actually, including Boca Juniors over River Plate and Racing over Independiente. We then switch our attention to Thursday night’s upcoming CONMEBOL WORLD CUP QUALIFYING FIGHT TO THE DEATH which, erm, actually probably won’t finalise things, but Uruguay v Peru should be tremendously entertaining for the neutral all the same.

Episode 420: Scaloni trolls Europe

In this week’s episode Sam, English Dan, Santi and Andrés are back in the same room. We look back on last weekend’s Copa de la Liga action, with Estudiantes dropping points for the first time. It’s hard not to admire Lionel Scaloni trolling Italy and (especially) Spain by calling up a plethora of dual nationals for Argentina’s final two World Cup qualifiers, too.
