In the life of every football club, there comes a time to take stock. When the short-term trend is not going your way, it might be best to do nothing at all.

On this episode, Matt Hermann and Terry Duffelen take apart those moves, look at the five remaining Bundesliga sides in Europe’s knock-out stage draws, and run through the best of the action on MD14.
And after a drum roll…(helpfully provided by our producer Aidan Rantoul)…we announce the winners of our Bayern: Creating a Global Superclub book give-away contest!
