Talking Fussball – Hertha, Eintracht rise as it’s BVB’s turn to stumble

‘Full to bursting’ is how you could describe this one. MD12 left us wanting to dig in to 3rd- and 4th-placed Hertha BSC and Eintracht Frankfurt’s continued strong seasons, especially after the latter knocked off mighty BVB on the weekend. We also discuss the slumping Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Mönchengladbach, hoping to diagnose what’s keeping them under the weather. (In Leverkusen’s most recent case – the hand of Javi/God…) We also get another instalment of TF Pet Team Search, as well as an update from the People’s Republic of St. Pauli with a Millernton Kompakt. If that didn’t sound like enough already, Nik Wildhagen gets out the passenger side door, rounds the car and gets into the driver’s seat. Matt Hermann does the vice-versa version. A zesty little twist! Produced by Aidan Rantoul.

P.s. The winners of the new Uli Hesse will shortly be drawn and will be announced on next week’s show!
