TF Extra Aufstieg Edition - Braunschweig reborn, St. Pauli forlorn and Heidenheim's sideline stalwart

Sailing into the international break, we've learned a few things. Reports of Eintrcht Braunschweig's imminent demise were premature, FC St. Pauli have well and truly hit the skids, and Frank Schmidt might well remain coach at FC Heidenheim until 2037. Plenty more going on, of course - Nik, Jasmine, and Maik take you through all the big stories from the 2. Bundesliga and the lower leagues here on the Aufstieg edition.

Talking Fussball Direct MD7 wrap - Bayern tumble down to FIFTH after loss in Augsburg, BVB boss Revierderby

Forgive us if we're feeling woozy. It's been twelve years since FC Bayern München got off to a start this poor, and more than 20 since they went four games without a win. It's a lot to take in, especially with a Revierderby on the docket, as well as a supremely confident performance from table-toppers 1. FC Union Berlin. Borussia Dortmund: A History in Black and Yellow author Terry Duffelen returns to the pod to talk through all the action from Match Day 7. Learn more about your ad choices...



Talking Fussball Patreon taster - How a derby win over HSV helped FC St. Pauli become the club we know today

We're offering up something a bit special today - a small taste of what you'll find over on our Patreon page! Our resident Bundesliga history buff Nik Wildhagen has curated another season of Historic Matchday Moments, a series of shorts about some of the biggest happenings in German top flight history, doled out week by week...



TF Direct MD6 wrap - Union alone at the top after Bayern draw for the third week running

They said it was a one-team league. If it was, at the moment that one team would be 1. FC Union Berlin, the low-budget side from the capital that's been getting high-end results all season. (With FC Bayern München slightly adrift, someone has to take up the mantle.) This week Matt welcomes a new guest, Jake Payne of the 50 Plus Döner show, to talk over the unfamiliar order at the top, the triumphant return of Marco Rose, and a string of puzzling VAR decisions.

TF Extra Aufstieg Edition - Nürnberg go through changes things up, Heidenheim remain exactly the same, and Hannover's coming moment of truth

Once again, it's only been two weeks since our last peek into the non-elite levels of the German football pyramid, and there's more than enough to talk about. 1. FC Nürnberg lost their assistant coach (Bastian Schweinsteiger's brother Tobias) to VfL Osnabrück, Frank Schmidt and Heidenheim keep hanging around the upper reaches of the table, and Hannover 96 look like they've turned a corner...but have some challenging fixtures ahead. Listen in as Nik, Jasmine and Maik break it all down...



Talking Fussball Direct MD5 wrap - Bayern's draw in Köpenick means Freiburg rule the roost heading into UEFA competition season

Another week, another Bayern draw and lo and behold - we've got a new team at the top! SC Freiburg (of all clubs) are now sitting pretty after a gritty comeback win in Leverkusen and a stout defensive display from Union Berlin. Borussia Dortmund's win meant they passed up the Bavarians too, so we've got quite a logjam in the upper reaches of the table. Matt sits down with the delightful Eva-Lotta Bohle (2...



TF Extra Deep Dive - Never a dull moment for Bremen fans as Werder serve up thrills galore in their Bundesliga return

If you like attacking football and loads of goals at both ends, you need to be watching Werder Bremen. The venerable northern German club have played just four games since coming back to the 1. Bundesliga, and in those games the back of the net has been tickled no less than twenty times - ten for and ten against. The club's return to the top flight has given us plenty to talk about - it's up to Nik and Jasmine (each of whom have a strong connection to the club) to do the talking...



Talking Fussball Direct MD4 wrap - Sommer's saves stymie Bayern, Leipzig and Leverkusen finally pick up wins

Boy did we ever praise Bayern to the skies last week after they put the hurt on a Bundesliga opponent for the second time in three games! But this past weekend, on the fourth match day, Borussia Mönchengladbach came to the Allianz - and if you know your recent history, that means trouble for the Rekordmeister. This time, the trouble was named Yann Sommer, who stonewalled Bayern into a 1-1 draw...



TF Extra Aufstieg Edition - Chaos in Hamburg, bad banners in Rostock, Bielefeld spiralling

The 2. Bundesliga season is just five games old but there's already plenty of drama - Hamburger Sport-Verein basically melted down on the pitch last week, Arminia Bielefeld fired their coach, and Hansa Rostock fans showed their true colors when FC St. Pauli fans came to town. Nik, Jasmine, and Maik have all that and more, as well as lots of news from the lower leagues as well. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit

Talking Fussball Direct MD3 wrap - Bayern ball out in Bochum, and Farke has the foals in fine form

The evidence is getting overwhelming - FC Bayern München are too good for the Bundesliga. We've had ten long years of dominance, but this particular Bayern might be better than ever. With a gaudy +14 goal difference after just three games, what other conclusion can we come to? Matt brings on Ronan Murphy of to talk about what makes them so good, as well as to chat about Borussia Mönchengladbach's strong start, Dortmund's legendary late loss, and much more...
