      Bundesliga MD4 – Dortmund re-take the summit, VAR stokes controversy


      So much ground for James Thorogood and Alex Chaffer to cover this week!

      Just when we thought Hannover 96 might make it through the match day as the top dog in the Bundesliga, BVB came along and scythed through Cologne in Sunday’s final match to put that storyline to bed. Stefan Buczko (ESPN, Yellow Wall Podcast) stops by to talk a bit of Schwarz-Gelben fussball – an interview that Patreon supporters will hear a lot more of.

      The big weekend of VAR-induced...

      Bundesliga MD3 – Bayern IN CRISIS after falling to the Hoff, Cologne smelling sour


      Where else could we start this week? Bayern LOSE a game and it’s only MD3! Hoffenheim were a bit too crafty for the defending champs on Saturday night, Robert Lewandowski spoke candidly to Spiegel about his concerns for the club’s future, and all hell breaks loose.

      Matt and Abel are all over that hell from minute one, moving on to Bibiana Steinhaus’ historic Sunday in Berlin, Cologne’s continued funk, and Domenico Tedesco’s thus-far-winning gamble on...

      International Break – Germany Edge Closer and Your Questions Answered


      No Bundesliga this past weekend – ugh. But just when you get that feeling that you’re walking through the wilderness, who should appear but a familiar and trusted guide…it’s James Thorogood! He and Bent Muehue convene in Cologne to talk Die Mannschaft, who are nearly home and dry after two wins in World Cup Qualifying this week.

      The show is rounded out by discussions suggested by our Patreon subscribers, who came through for us with some provocative topics....

      Bundesliga MD2 – Hamburg and Hanover Spark Northern Renaissance


      Sometimes it takes a season for predictions to come back and bite you; other times it’s just a matter of weeks. The supposedly lowly Hamburger SV and Hannover 96 are both off to a flying start, making Talking Fussball scratch its collective head.

      This week Matt is joined by Abel and Terry for a Bundesliga roundtable, covering the doings on MD2 as well as transfer news, like BVB’s turning Ousmane Dembele into Andriy Yarmolenko and at least 75 million euros. We’ve...

      Bundesliga MD1 – Dortmund and Schalke shine, Leckie is unleashed


      The starting gun has been fired on another season in the Bundesliga, and some teams looked more ready on their marks than others. Dortmund looked great, riding Mario Götze and Christian Pulisic’s midfield mastery to a big win in Wolfsburg; Schalke’s canny countering game was too much for last year’s bridesmaids RBL; Mathew Leckie made his presence felt in Berlin as he broke his dry spell in a BIG way with a brace against Stuttgart.

      You’ll hear about all this ...

      We’re so damn close now – the Bundesliga kicks off on Friday and Talking Fussball is ready to lay it on the line and tell you how we think the league will shake out.

      2017-18 Bundesliga Preview – Players with plenty to prove


      We’re one week closer to the start of the Bundesliga season! Bayern got the better of Dortmund in the DFL Supercup thanks to superstar goalkeeper Sven Ulreich, but lost front office guru Michael Reschke to Stuttgart that same wekeend.

      Talking Fussball gets into the personnel evaluation spirit themselves this week, as Matt and Abel run through some of the players who may have the biggest impact on the coming season. What does James have to offer Bayern? Can Jhon Cordoba fill...

      Bundesliga / NBA extravaganza!


      With Bundesliga teams still kicking around in friendlies of questionable consequence, Talking Fussball makes its return in full goofball mode. After chewing over Bayern’s appointment of a new Sporting Director and the potential dawn of a new big-spending era for Hannover 96, Matt and Abel get down to business. And by ‘business’ they mean solving the ancient riddle of: Which teams from the National Basketball Association should be twinned with which Bundesliga...

      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 discuss g...
