Talking Fussball Extra – Wolfsburg stun Real + MD29 Preview

Don’t even try and tell us you had an actual iota of an inkling that Wolfsburg had a chance to beat Real Madrid, as well as keep the Spaniards from scoring an away goal. Just don’t. That’s pretty much the standpoint from which we begin this week’s Talking Fussball Extra. One of wonder.

After reflecting on the miracle of Wolfsburg, we move on to discuss Bayern’s tight encounter with Benfica, Team Marktwert’s attempts to get their hands on more cash, Hertha Berlin’s attempt to think about maybe building a proper football stadium, and 1. FC Köln Sporting Director Jörg Schmadtke’s chewing gum issues. A full preview of Bundesliga Match Day 29 follows.

[And if you think you hear a wee crackle begin to seep into Matt’s track at some point, you’re not hearing things. Ain’t no fixing it in post, unfortunately.]
