Episode 89: Grondona out, various players in & Riquelme still going nowhere

Hand Of Pod is back, and Sam, Joel and English Dan welcome 2013 with a nice laid-back chat about nothing in particular. There’s just the news that one of the most powerful men in world football will leave his charge of the AFA in 2015, a bunch of (admittedly often tiresome) transfer gossip from the summer and various other issues to mop up, including the ongoing saga of where (or whether) Juan Román Riquelme will be playing his football this year; could it be Tigre, now that they’re in the group stages of the Copa Libertadores for the first time? We discuss River Plate’s and Boca Juniors’ pre-seasons, as well as those of the other big boys, confusing goings-on surrounding Ricky Centurión’s transfer from Racing to Anzhi Makhachkala in Russia, Argentina’s latest Under-20 failure, and a lot more. It’s good to be back.
