Episode 76: Australian Dan says good bye… and some stuff about the national side & league

The seventy-sixth episode of Hand Of Pod is a sad affair, being as it is Australian Dan’s final appearance as a full HOP-er.

There’s a full weekend of league games in Argentina as well, and we look back on the last round which included a draw for River Plate seemingly in spite of their manager, a hat-trick from a potential Next Big Thing at Racing, an enormous number of red cards, and no shortage of goals. Enjoy.

As usual, Mystic Dan’s predictions can be read below. And don’t forget, we’re on iTunes here, and Twitter here.
