Episode 332: ¡Racing campeón!

In the three-hundred-and-thirty-second episode of Hand Of Pod, Sam, English Dan and Andrés look back on a weekend of Superliga action which saw Racing crowned champions of Argentina in spite of late goals for both Tigre and Defensa y Justicia. They also look at what’s left in the final weekend of the campaign coming up: the relegation battle, the race to finish in the Copa Sudamericana spots, and whether Boca Junors can leapfrog Defensa to claim second place.

Episode 331: trying to ignore the negatives, but there are just so many of them

In the three-hundred-and-thirty-first episode of Hand Of Pod, Sam, Andrés and English Dan look back on two woeful friendly performances by Lionel Scaloni’s Argentina – a second-ever defeat to Venezuela and a narrow win over Morocco – which did absolutely nothing to breed optimism ahead of the Copa América. We also preview the last two weeks of the Superliga season, with the title run-in and the Copa Sudamericana qualification battle taking centre stage.

Episode 330: reviewing everything in the league, and previewing the internationals

In the three hundred and thirtieth episode of Hand Of Pod, Sam, Andrés and English Dan meet to discuss a weekend of Superliga action which saw the title race and relegation battle become abruptly less tense with two games to go – although the only thing confirmed so far is San Martín de Tucumán’s relegation – and to preview the international friendlies of the next few days, which see Lionel Messi return as Argentina face Venezuela and Morocco.

Episode 328: Racing’s league lead remains at 3 points, and Scaloni welcomes Messi back for Argentina

The three-hundred-and-twenty-eighth episode of Hand Of Pod sees Sam joined by Andrés and English Dan to review a weekend on which the gap at the top remained at three points, with Racing and Defensa y Justicia the only realistic title hopefuls (and likely to be the only ones with even a mathematical chance by the end of the coming round). We also look back on Tuesday’s Copa Libertadores matches involving Argentine sides, and consider Lionel Scaloni’s Argentina squad – which was named after the pod was recorded, but which as expected marks the return of Lionel Messi to international football.

Episode 326: Still neck and neck at the top, and previewing the Avellaneda clásico

In the three hundred and twenty sixth episode of Hand Of Pod, Sam, English Dan and Andrés discuss an interesting weekend of action which saw Tigre win their first game under Néstor Gorosito, and victories for both of the top two (Racing and Defensa y Justicia), who remain neck and neck with six games to go and that tantalising clash between them in the Cilindro on the final weekend. River were held and Boca Juniors won and then lost, and we announce the lucky winner of the six-month free Fanatiz subscription prize draw.
