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 273: Lessons to learn for Jorge Sampaoli after two uninspiring friendlies
3 days ago
The seventh anniversary episode of Hand Of Pod sees Sam and Andrés get together for a chat about two friendlies which brought more problems to light than reason for optimism for the Argentine national team. A 1-0 win over Russia on Saturday was rather dull, and a 4-2 defeat to Nigeria on Tuesday has set alarm bells ringing well and truly regarding what the best tactics and formation are, and whether certain players ought to still be playing for Argentina at all. We also have a quick look over the Copa Argentina semi-finals, which resulted in a River Plate v Atlético Tucumán final, and discuss the FIFAGate fallout after Alejandro Burzaco's first two days of testimony in New York.

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!
