What I hate about Argentina’s Torneos de Verano

This week’s opinion piece for The Bubble was a tricky one to start writing, because there’s nothing much happening in Argentine football this week. Nothing, that is, apart from transfer sagas and the over-hyped, overblown Torneos de Verano, the summer championships. So I decided to expand on just why I wish these pre-season friendlies could be treated with a little more sense of their real importance. You can read the piece here.
