Talking Fussball Extra – Gent v Wolfsburg, MD22 Preview

Just in time to mull over the Bundesliga’s lone UEFA Champions League encounter (but too early, unfortunately, to take in all those Europa League ties), Talking Fussball Extra returns for another breezy hour of football discussion.

This week Matt Hermann and Nik Wildhagen are joined by Kirsten Schlewitz, veteran writer and editor at a string of online outlets and now one of the founders behind the exciting estrogen-fueled venture known as Unusual Efforts. It’s a football site and publication that’s entirely run by women, it’s coming soon, and you should pay attention – it’s almost certain to turn up new ideas and perspectives. (And I suspect you’ve read enough soccer writing by dudes for two lifetimes, no?)

We take in Wolfsburg’s emphatic-then-stuttering away win, Kevin Prince Boateng’s tell-all memoir, and all the coming action on Bundesliga Match Day 22.
