Hand Of Pod
About This Show
Argentine football expert Sam Kelly, with the help of various friends including freelancer Dan Edwards, World Soccer's Joel Richards and a bunch of very knowledgeable real-life Argentines you won't have heard of, guide you through the minefield of one of the world's most competitive and longest-running leagues. We normally get a bit tipsy whilst recording, so quality may vary.

Episode 261: Reviewing Sampaoli's start for Argentina, and gearing up for the title run-in
In the two hundred and sixty-first episode of Hand Of Pod, Sam and Andrés look back on Jorge Sampaoli's first two matches as Argentina manager, which ended in two victories, seven goals scored and none conceded - although one was a lot closer as a contest than the other. We also cast our eyes forwards towards his competitive debut at the end of August, where they'll be no margin for error. As well as this, we've a title run-in to consider, with this weekend's matches followed almost immediately by a round in midweek; by the time we next record, Boca Juniors could very well be champions.
Rated 5 out of
Unravelling Argentinan football.
In a living room somewhere in Beunos Aires, Sam Kelly & friends gather & discuss Football Argentina. This is not a slick James Richardson pod, this one comes with barking dogs & sirens - and is the better for it. Politics, Ultras & complicated league formats with a splash of humour, a dash of sarcasm & a glass of fermet - Magic!
