Episode 86: Rising stars, crowd policing issues and an emotional return for San Lorenzo

This week’s Hand Of Pod is the eighty-sixth episode, and as Seba rightly points out early on, eighty-six is an important number for Argentine football, not least for being the year which saw the event from which we take our name. Sam, Joel and Seba discuss an ever-tightening title race, a thrilling showing from Racing’s young forward trio, more crowd trouble at Independiente and at the Santa Fe derby over the weekend, before explaining why San Lorenzo’s move back to their historic home of Boedo has repercussions far beyond football in Argentine society. As if all this wasn’t thrilling enough, we have a bit of a chat about River Plate’s latest financial results. It’s gripping stuff.
