Have you missed us? We’ve missed you, so Matt is here with a flash update after Wolfsburg wrapped up the Bundesliga season by topping Holstein Kiel in the relegation playoff. Tune in to find out when we’ll be recording a season-in-review, as well as what we have planned for the World Cup!
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!
Talking Fussball Extra is back…loud and clear everybody! Matt Hermann and Nik Wildhagen cover all the German football news that’s fit to pod, and run through what’s to come on Match Day 26.
And hey remember SC Freiburg? The plucky southwesterners led by a wild-eyed cyclist who nearly made the Champions League and then went tumbling out of the league? Well, they still play soccer on a professional basis in the 2. Bundesliga. Nik went to see them, he spoke to SCF superfan Chris Walker (@SCF_UK), and the proof is in the middle of our broadcast. Enjoy!
