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.

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 329: the title race tightens, and details of the 2020 Copa América

In episode three hundred and twenty-nine of Hand Of Pod, Sam, English Dan and Andrés discuss the title and relegation battles in the Superliga, which have both tightened up considerably with three matches to go, and look at the interesting decision by CONMEBOL to award hosting of the 2020 Copa América (yes, there will be a 2020 Copa América) to Argentina and Colombia.

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.
