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 249: Previewing Argentina v Chile, and some league talk
6 days ago
The two hundred and forty-ninth episode of Hand Of Pod sees Sam and Andrés discuss a week of domestic action which saw Boca Juniors lose for the first time since the opening weekend, San Lorenzo also defeated and an Ignacio Scocco hat trick for Newell's Old Boys (surprisingly, his first) put the top of the title race back to how it was two weeks ago. River Plate impressed away to Lanús on Tuesday, and there's plenty more to talk about besides. Not least, Argentina's World Cup qualifying clash at home to Chile on Thursday evening, which we preview, and whether Mauro Icardi should maybe be in the squad given he appears incapable of entering a pitch without scoring at least one goal these days.
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!
