Episode 350: Panamerican Games success and Daniele De Rossi’s Boca debut

Three hundred and fifty! How did we get this far? In this week’s Hand Of Pod, Sam, English Dan and Andrés look back on silver for the women and gold for the boys representing Argentina in the Panamerican Games football tournaments, and consider the narrative of Daniele De Rossi scoring on his Boca Juniors debut and then watching from the bench, having been subbed, as his teammates went out of the Copa Argentina in a shootout against Almagro.

Episode 349: San Lorenzo win again, River thrash Lanús, and more

This week, Sam and Andrés look back on the second week of action in the 2019–20 Superliga, which saw Arsenal and San Lorenzo both pick up their second wins in as many league games, while River Plate and Boca Juniors also both won, and Independiente aren’t too happy with CONMEBOL. We also take a look at Argentines in the European transfer window, particularly those who’ve been linked with English clubs as the English window closed.

Episode 341: Tigre win their first trophy, and plenty of international talk

In the three hundred and forty-first episode of Hand Of Pod, Sam, English Dan and Andrés look back on Tigre’s first ever major trophy win, after the Victoria club got their own back on the Argentine top flight by winning the first ever Copa Superliga, and in so doing taking a place in the group stage of next year’s Copa Libertadores, by beating Boca Juniors 2-0. We also preview the Women’s World Cup and Copa América (a bit), and pick over the bones of Argentina’s elimination at the hands of Mali in the U-20 World Cup.

In the three hundred and fortieth episode of Hand Of Pod, Sam, English Dan and Andrés discuss the semi-final seconds legs of the Copa Superliga, and look forward to Sunday’s final between Tigre and Boca Juniors.

Episode 339: Tigre eviscerate Atlético, Argentinos and Boca bore us

In the three hundred and thirty-ninth episode of Hand Of Pod, Sam is joined by English Dan and Andrés to discuss the first legs of the Copa Superliga, which saw Tigre all but book their place in the final … only for CONMEBOL to bafflingly announce a couple of days later that even if they win the cup, they won’t be allowed in to next year’s Copa Libertadores. We also have the Copa América final squad to run the rule over, and plenty more besides.

Episode 338: we wanted to preview the Copa Superliga semis, but well … you’ll see.

In the three hundred and thirty-eighth episode of Hand Of Pod, Sam, English Dan and Andrés discuss three quarters of the Copa Superliga quarter-finals … but not three quarters in that way; three quarters in the other way. Two of the ties conclude after this episode goes online, so previewing the semi-finals is tricky, but we are able to look at Argentina’s preliminary squad lists for the Women’s World Cup and the men’s Copa América, among other things.

Episode 337: Warming up for the Copa Superliga quarter-finals

In the three hundred and thirty-seventh episode of Hand Of Pod, Sam and Andrés look back on an action-packed weekend of Copa Superliga action which saw River Plate eviscerate Aldosivi, Boca Juniors breeze past Godoy Cruz on a sodden Bombonera pitch, and a hilarious – if distinctly amateur-hour – kit mixup at San Lorenzo v Argentinos Juniors, among plenty more. We also look forward to a weekend which contains the first legs of the quarter-finals and a last-weekend title decider in the women’s Primera, as River Plate host UAI Urquiza on the final day knowing one team will emerge from the match as champions.
