Bundesliga MD12 – Schalke pass up diminished Dortmund on their way to second place

The past two months have been a whirlwind of woe for BVB – a story we’ve all heard much about. It’s now fair to say they’ve been nearly as good for S04 as they were bad for Dortmund as the Royal Blues slide past the Schwarzgelben on the Bundesliga table.

Matt and Abel talk through the divergent fortunes of those two grand Fussball clubs, as well as explore the weirdness on show in Borussia Mönchengladbach’s 4-2 win in Berlin. Bayern’s win over Augsburg (a game that’s the subject of Abel’s latest ‘Anatomy of a Goal’ on Patreon this week) gets a mention – in fact, they have at least a little to say about the whole match day. Huzzah!

UCL/UEL MD4 & Bundesliga MD11 Preview – Klassiker weekend finds Bayern ready to bully Dortmund

It’s happened. FC Bayern München have wrested top spot in the Bundesliga away from Borussia Dortmund, and the Schwarzgelben need to snap out of their funk fast on Saturday to keep from falling further behind.

Matt and Abel run through the big stories coming out of European competition this week, talk over what Werder Bremen’s next move might be in finding a new coach, and find time to give their quick-takes on each of the games coming up on MD11. We’ll be back with our regularly scheduled programming early next week to talk about the Klasskier fallout and much more. Produced by Aidan Rantoul.
