Episode 436: Vélez are the last Argentines standing in the Libertadores

This week Sam, English Dan, Andrés and Tony are visited by listener Tommy to discuss a week of action that’s seen Atlético Tucumán remain top of the table with an unlikely chasing pack, and Vélez Sarsfield emerge as the only Argentine (and indeed non-Brazilian) semifinalists in this year’s Copa Libertadores, after they beat Talleres pretty comfortably over two legs and Estudiantes got hit by the mother of all sucker punches from Athletico Paranaense.

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 432: Racing claim the clásico; Newell’s remain top

This week, Sam and English Dan look back on last week’s league games, including a whole load of 3–2s and a 1–0 win for Racing over Independiente, consider the main runners in the title race and more bad results for River Plate and Boca Juniors. The title is already out of date, because thanks to a 1–0 win over Aldosivi on Friday night, at the time of uploading this episode Atlético Tucumán(!) were top of the league.
