Talking Fussball Extra – Wednesday Madness and Match Day 29 Preview

Wednesday saw Bayern München lose the first leg of the Champions League quarter finals against Porto after three massive blunders by the Bavarians defence. Back in Germany HSV made headlines for appointing their fourth coach of the season and BVB coach Jürgen Klopp announced that he’d leave Dortmund at the end of the season.

Archie Rhind-Tutt and Nik Wildhagen take a closer look at all the story lines emerging on that crucial day for German football. The two of them talk about Jürgen Klopp’s legacy at Dortmund and HSV chances of avoiding the drop, before they dive into the mess Bayern got themselves into in the Champions League.

In part 2 we’re taking a closer look at all the upcoming action on match day 29.

And if that wasn’t enough, we are giving away 10 copies of Ronald Reng’s new book “Match days: The hidden story of the Bundesliga”. So sit back, pour yourself a cup/glass of coffee/tea/beer/beverage of your choice, and enjoy!

Talking Fussball Extra – Match Day 19 review and Match Day 20 preview

Matt Hermann rounds up BT Sport’s Archie Rhind-Tutt and the Bundesliga fanatic’s Niklas Wildhagen to take a closer look at all the action from mid-week and to look ahead to the next match day.

The boys get into several issues from match day 19: Were Hertha right to sack Jos Luhukay? What are the reasons behind Werder’s marvellous upswing in form under their new coach Viktor Skripnik? Should referees send Pep Guardiola to the stands when he strays too far from the code of conduct? For a fan’s view of the troubles at Borussia Dortmund, Sandra Goldschmidt joins Matt to talk about the atmosphere on the Südtribüne during BVB’s loss at home to Augsburg. In the last segment, we take a look ahead to match day 20, complete with another edition of our beloved Tippspiel.
