Talking Fussball – Sweden National Team preview with Axel Falk

So have you had a bit of time to digest Germany’s opening loss to Mexico? You’d better get there, because die Mannschaft‘s next challenge is coming around the corner.

To prepare for that, we present an extended chat with Axel Falk on Sweden’s national team. He’s the Germany correspondent for SvenskaFans, a lifelong supporter of the Blågult, and a great conversation partner for understanding the culture that surrounds this team in transition that will try like hell to keep their advantage over Germany on Saturday. Produced by Aidan Rantoul. Enjoy!

Talking Fussball Extra – Honigstein on Das Reboot + 2015/16 MD9 Preview

This week Matt Hermann sits down for an extended interview with Raphael Honigstein on his new book Das Reboot: How German Football Reinvented Itself and Conquered the World. They also talk about Jürgen Klopp’s future at Liverpool and Janet Jackson (for good measure).

Nik Wildhagen, meanwhile, went to Cologne to track down our long lost panelist Archie Rhind Tutt for a Match Day 9 preview. They also dig into the sensation that is Stefan Effenberg’s taking the reins at SC Paderborn and 1. FC Köln’s good start, which Archie has had the chance to witness up close.
