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

8 Dec

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

23 May

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.
