TF Extra - Could what happened to Bury in England happen in Germany? A deep dive into football finance, fan culture and German society (bonus Patreon sample podcast)

We've got something special for you all today - a look behind the Patreon curtain! Here's an episode of Talking Fussball Extra, Nik Wildhagen and Terry Duffelen's podcast that takes a wider view of the German football scene and appears every few weeks on our Patreon feed. This week they dig into some of the thorniest issues facing football in Germany and elsewhere. What do the fates of English clubs Bury and Bolton mean for the future of football finance in Germany? How much pressure is the sustained success of the Bundesliga's "plastic" clubs (RB Leipzig, Hoffenheim, Wolfsburg, Leverkusen) putting on the rest of the league to "modernize" their financial models? And how do clubs in areas with high support for far-right parties keep their supporters groups from becoming megaphones for hate? Nik and Terry nab one of the best possible guests on these topics: Felix Tamsut of Deutsche Welle, a leading voice in international coverage of German Football fan culture. Listen in as this thoughtful trio deliver a must-listen episode. If you like it, head on over to our Patreon page and sign up!
