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 246: Rounding up the last weekend of 2016 action
Dec 21 16
The two hundred and forty-sixth episode of Hand Of Pod is the last one of the year. Sam, Andrés and English Dan round up the last week of Primera action this year, which included two good results for River Plate (who claimed the Copa Argentina last week), another big win for Boca Juniors, who thus end the year at the top of the table, more dropped points for Estudiantes and plenty of other talking points, including a number of emotional farewells to players and various managers either resigning or being fired. As well as all this, there's also time to take a brief look at the current situation regarding TV rights for next year - which is currently up in the air. You'll be hearing from us again at the end of the summer break - if you're celebrating over the next week or two, enjoy!

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!
