Bundesliga MD23 – A fireside chat about Monday Night Fussball, Wolfsburg and HSV with Stephan Uersfeld

Bundesliga fans were ROCKED by a punishing new schedule this week…one which meant they had to travel to a stadium or tune in their TV sets (shudder) on a Monday!!! Luckily, those who survived the indignity have lived to tell a tale of a helluva match between Eintracht Frankfurt and RB Leipzig.

Matt catches up with Stephan Uersfeld of ESPN to talk through the weekday special, the coaching move Wolfsburg made this week, and HSV’s dim prospects of staying in the top flight. This little baby produced by Aidan Rantoul is all conducted in a most genteel style in the Kaminbar of a swank hotel, and therefore best enjoyed with a snifter of your finest by the fireside. Enjoy!

Bundesliga MD19 – Bayern breakaway continues as rivals falter

It’s that time of year again. The one where Bundesliga watchers go into idle lamentation mode, worried about FC Bayern München running away with the league again.

Listen in as Matt sits down with Kit Holden in his Berlin study for a highbrow discussion of Bayern’s ultra-dominance, Dortmund’s search for a new point to their spear now that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang looks set to leave, and much much more. Produced by Aidan Rantoul.

Talking Fussball – MD2 Review and Syria’s number one Werder Bremen fan

Talking Fussball is really pretty pleased with the result it got this week while wrapping up Bundesliga match day 2.

Matt Hermann brought podcast all-star Terry Duffelen back into the line-up and handed a debut to New Jersey’s Abel Meszaros. The man known as @BundesPL on Twitter played a blinder, even as he had to come off during the second half water break. Nik Wildhagen then made a huge impact in a cameo appearance interviewing the man behind Werder Bremen’s fan club in war-struck Syria, Akel Alkubeh (@Akel_SVW).

Enjoy, and see you next week!
