Episode 281: Talleres go second, Boca win again and Ribas can’t stop scoring

Episode 281 of Hand Of Pod sees Sam and Andrés look back on a weekend of action which saw Talleres leapfrog San Lorenzo to go second – albeit having played a game more – and Boca Juniors maintain the distance at the top of the Superliga with a nervy win over Temperley. There were a couple of high-scoring games to look back on as well, and Sebastián Ribas’ red-hot scoring form continued with another goal for Patronato.

Episode 280: the top two draw; Scocco’s solo brilliance, and Lautaro Martínez’s hat trick

Episode 280 of Hand Of Pod sees Sam and Andrés discuss an entertaining round of Superliga action which saw the gap at the top remain at six points, thanks to second place San Lorenzo’s 1-1 draw with league leaders Boca Juniors. Talleres went third with a fortuitous win over Temperley, and we also look at headline-grabbing solo performances for River Plate and Racing – namely Ignacio Scocco’s brace, including a spectacular second, for River, and Lautaro Martínez’s first senior hat trick for Racing.

Episode 244: Boca impress again, Independiente get a win and previewing the Superclásico

The two hundred and forty-fourth episode of Hand Of Pod sees Sam and Peter meet to discuss Independiente’s first win in a while, against River Plate’s reserve side, and look into some of the struggles Gabriel Milito faces as manager. We have praise for Boca Juniors after an impressive win over Racing, ask whether Estudiantes’ grip on first place is slipping, and look at Banfield’s remarkable upturn in form, as a week after beating the league leaders they’ve now claimed a win over second placed Newell’s Old Boys. All this, and some pre-superclásico thoughts too, as River Plate prepare to host Boca Juniors this Sunday. Enjoy!

Episode 105: Meltdown at Argentinos Juniors, no-one wants the title, & previewing Boca v Newell’s

Sam and English Dan are joined by Santiago for this week’s Hand Of Pod, in which we begin with a discussion of an astonishing couple of days at Argentinos Juniors, including manager Ricardo Caruso Lombardi losing his rag on live TV (hardly for the first time, it’s true) and much more. We also talk about the top three all failing to win in the Torneo Final at the weekend, Independiente edging closer to an unlikely survival, and promotions for Rosario Central (back to the Primera) and Talleres de Córdoba (back to B Nacional), before previewing the mini-series of games that Newell’s Old Boys and Boca Juniors will play in the next few days. Listeners’ questions include European transfer targets and Buenos Aires’ most dangerous stadia.
