Episode 378: CONMEBOL strongarm the AFA

In this week’s HOP, Sam, English Dan, Andrés and Santi discuss CONMEBOL’s recent strongarming of the AFA – and, perhaps, the Argentine government – into opening football in Argentina before they wanted to, with the rather sudden announcement that the Copas Libertadores and Sudamericana will be kicking off again later in the year.

Episode 377: the lockdown update

HOP is back! This week, Sam, Tony and English Dan give you an update on the discussions that have been had in Argentine football – and what’s happened quarantine-wise in Argentina as a whole – in the two months and a bit since we last recorded. We also answer a couple of listeners’ questions. The plan now is to record about once every two weeks until football returns, but we’re not really any the wiser yet about when that will be.

In this week’s Hand Of Pod, Sam, Andrés and Tony look back on the drama of Boca Juniors’ title win, as the Xeneize pipped River Plate on the last day to win their third Argentine championship in four seasons. We also looked at the other drama from the weekend just gone … which was almost none, because continental spots and relegation won’t be decided until the end of the Copa Superliga group stage (if indeed that goes the distance). We also discuss the current situation regarding next season’s league system for the top flight.
