      Bundesliga MD8 – RB Leipzig win instant classic in Dortmund, Hertha #takeaknee


      Who can forget where they were when Leipzig went to the Westfalenstadion and knocked off BVB? It’s only been a few days, but it already feels like this attacking display will live on for some time yet in the discerning Bundesliga fan’s memory.

      Matt and Abel do their best to do the game justice on this week’s podcast, as well as dig deeper into the justice theme with Hertha BSC. The capital club positioned themselves as the Bundesliga’s leading proponents of...

      World Cup 2018 Qualifiers – Bundesliga stars in action at the business end


      Usually when they take away our Bundesliga for the week, we kick and scream – this week, it wasn’t so bad. International action served up plenty of drama as qualifying for World Cup 2018 came to a close. Matt and Abel talk over many of the best storylines, including Germany’s record-setting run to Russia, Turkey’s blackout at home to Iceland, and the exploits of a certain BVB wonder boy in Orlando.

      The episode is rounded out with some Jupp-Heynckes-to-Bayern...

      Bundesliga MD7 – BVB riding high into international break as Bayern make a change


      It’s time for another Länderspielpause everybody – a good chance to take stock of a league that looks increasingly competitive. Dortmund are still scything through the league, but Bayern, Hoffenheim and Leipzig are keeping them honest.

      Funny that, in that Bayern are IN CRISIS, as we all know. At the time James Thorogood and Alex Chaffer recorded, Jupp Heynckes was not yet in the frame to take over for the remainer of the season…but he surely seems to be now. The ...

      European Blues – Bayern lead the way as Bundesliga sides fail and fail and fail


      Hoo boy. Six teams in Europe, six losers. Bayern drop Carlo Ancelotti like he’s a bag of bologna sandwiches left outside on a hot day. Plenty of bad news to go around, and to tell the truth we didn’t know the half of it at recording time!

      Matt Hermann caught up with his Berlin-based chum Stephan Uersfeld (ESPNFC) for some Bundesliga soul-searching just about an hour before the axe fell on Carlo’s neck, and before the Europa League trio wet-farted their way to a...

      Bundesliga MD4 – Dortmund keep hold on the summit, VAR stokes controversy


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

      Just when it seemed 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...

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 ...
