Episode 250: What’s wrong with Argentina, and how to fix it, with Jonathan Wilson

30 Mar

This week’s episode of Hand Of Pod sees Sam, English Dan, Andrés and Tony joined by the man who literally wrote the book on Argentine football, because Jonathan Wilson’s in town just for our two hundred and fiftieth episode (okay, not just for that). We have two awful performances from the Argentine national team to discuss – a win over Chile and a defeat away to Bolivia – as well as Lionel Messi’s suspension for saying some naughty words to a linesman, Edgardo Bauza’s future job security now the AFA (hours before we began recording) finally has a new president and board of directors, and a nearly full round of Primera División matches, since the summer delay meant the AFA is obliged to play through the international break in order to catch up the season a bit in terms of how far it ought to have progressed by now. Enjoy.
