      Season review – Tuchel turfed out after DFB Cup triumph, Brooks joins wolfpack, a look back at BVB’s 1997 UCL win


      A dangerously large helping of Talking Fussball this week! Matt and Abel planned to convene to give out superlatives for the 2016-17 Bundesliga season…and somehow got sidetracked by the axe that fell on Thomas Tuchel at BVB, as well as John Brooks’ record-smashing move from Hertha to Wolfsburg. Strong takes on both of these moves, folks.

      In the middle of all this, BVB London President Benjamin McFadyean stops by to reminisce about a little something that happened 20...

      Wolfsburg’s engine fails in Hamburg, Aubameyang takes the cannon on MD34


      The Bundesliga crossed the finish line this past weekend with plenty of thrills. Dortmund’s top marksman helped them out-duel Hoffenheim  for third place; Cologne’s late kick earned them a Europa League group stage place at Hertha’s expense; HSV eventually found the legs to avoid finishing 16th and condemn the Wolves to a potentially tense Lower Saxony derby.

      Matt Hermann and Abel Meszaros take most of this on board in virtual space; what they don’t...

      Talking Fussball – Bayern top Bulls in thriller, Ingolstadt bow out on MD33


      When two very good teams face off with little at stake, sometimes it’s a snoozer…and sometimes you better stand back, because the fireworks are about to go off. The fuse was definitely lit when FC Bayern München traveled to RB Leipzig on MD33.

      Matt Hermann meets up with Kit Holden (MailOnline, Tagesspiegel) to talk about the big Bavarian comeback, the dogfight over 3rd place between BVB and Hoffenheim, the latest edition of HSV’s annual relegation passion play,...

      Talking Fussball – “Disintegration” by Thomas Tuchel & The BVB


      We’d all heard the rumors. Aki Watzke and Thomas Tuchel don’t like each other much. Some players have bristled at the young coach’s public dressing-downs. Turns out they were all true, and Dortmund and TT look headed for splitsville.

      Nik Wildhagen picked up the vacationing Matt Hermann’s slack this week, hosting the pod and prodding Abel Meszaros for his take on the bad blood at BVB as well as the rest of the goings on on the antepenultimate Bundesliga match...

      Talking Fussball – Bayern make it an even five…and it’s not enough; Hamburg and Leverkusen fading fast


      It’s fair to say MD31 was owned by FC Bayern München. The Rekordmeister added another Bundesliga title to their collection, and we here at Talking Fussball felt it was time to sink our teeth into Carlo’s cadre.

      The one and only Susie Schaaf (Bayern Central, Bundesliga Fanatic, Rekordmeister Podcast) beams in from Florida, and boy does she share her views on Bayern with Matt. The pair also take on the present crap-itude of Bayer Leverkusen; European dark horses...

      Talking Fussball – Top and bottom teams drop points on MD30 to maintain suspense with four games left


      Another match day down and still now clarity. Bayern drew at home to Mainz and have not yet won the league; RB Leipzig drew auf Schalke and can still be overtaken into second; Hoffenheim’s draw in Cologne guarantees them at least Europa League football but we’re gonna go out on a limb and say that’s not actually the tournament they’re shooting for.

      Matt is back at the helm to talk about the matchday that was with Abel, as well as to dish on the dining...

      Talking Fussball – Hoffenheim and Nagelsmann edge towards history, relegation battle takes another twist


      In a season rife with inconsistency, two surprise packages have taken the Bundesliga by storm with their dynamic attacking football and, while Leipzig have already clinched a top-four finish, Hoffenheim aren’t likely to be too far behind them!

      With just five games left in the 2016/17 campaign there is still plenty to be decided in Germany’s top flight. On Matchday 29 all the teams vying for European qualification had a weekend to forget, while the sides battling the...

      Talking Fussball – Bayern crush BVB in der Klassiker ahead of key week in Europe, Ingolstadt claw toward safety


      Remember November, when Dortmund bested Bayern, kicking off what we thought might be a real title race this season? Yeah, us neither, at least after watching the Bavarians steamroll BVB on Saturday night. Germany’s two giants will have to move on from the result right away, however – both are in Champions League quarterfinals this week.

      Matt and returning podcaster Nik Wildhagen offer their takes on the duopoly’s doings this week, as well as what’s been...

      Talking Fussball – Hoffenheim humble Bayern, Bremen stay white-hot on MD27


      It’s not every week we can talk about FC Bayern München getting outplayed in the Bundesliga. In fact it’s almost no weeks at all, but as the Rekordmeister get ready for der Klassiker against Borussia Dortmund, they kinda lost the plot against Hoffenheim.

      Matt and long lost podcaster Alex Chaffer get stuck into that storyline, as well as the one about Werder Bremen being born again as a good soccer team on the pod. We also give out some listener-question-inspired...

      Talking Fussball – Goals, goals, goals and a teen-age rap video tribute on MD26


      35 goals in the Bundesliga this weekend – one for just about everybody except Cologne’s Anthony Modeste. All he got was a hip-hop video tribute from a youthful Frenchman called MKN, which you should definitely watch.

      Matt and Abel take on the reasons for Mainz’s recent drop into the thick of the relegation fight, as well as Schalke’s chances to sneak into Europe after all. They also wax lyrical about hat tricks from Thomas Delaney and Mario Gomez, and the...
