Talking Fussball Euro 2020 (in 2021) special - A look at France, Germany's first (and biggest) test in the Group of Death, with Andy Brassell
It's been an eventful first few days here in Euro 2020 (in 2021)-land. Viewers around the world were reminded just what a piffle the whole affair is compared to a person's life and well-being, a host of players (and even whole countries) have scored their first European Championship goals, and Germany are about to get off the mark against World Cup holders France. Matt Hermann rang up his old friend (and friend of the pod) Andy Brassell to talk about Les Bleus' preparations, how coach Didier Deschamps might set them up to play, and what he and the Football Ramble gang have planned for their daily coverage of the tournament.
Talking Fussball Euro 2020 (in 2021) preview
Ready for the Euros? Matt and Nik just about are, so they thought it was time to get together and get their heads around what's at stake for Bundesliga fans. Can Jogi Löw turn the narrative and go out on a high with a good performance from the Nationalmannschaft? What Bundesliga stars on other teams are likely to make a big impression on the tournament? And why does everybody have to criss-cross the continent on airplanes when there's still a pandemic on again?
Talking Fussball Look Back - Our end of season awards, NBA style
We're skipping the Best XI, and going further than naming a player of the season. The Bundesliga is done for the summer and Matt and Marie have been watching a lot of basketball, so they thought why not give out awards in the spirit of the NBA.
What Eintracht player is our Most Improved Player? What speedy winger took home our Rookie of the Year? And is there even a question who was the MVP? Listen in and find out...
Talking Fussball MD34 wrap - Lewy leaves it late to reach the promised land as Bremen are cast out
Matt, Reiss and Nik had to give Bayern's Polish striking icon his due to open the show after surpassing Gerd Müller's seemingly unbreakable record, but let's be honest - Werder going down is a big deal too. What once was a club who regularly competed for titles has turned, over the past decade, into husk of its former self. Nik's naturally got a lot to say about that, so Matt makes sure to give him time to say his piece. Look on the bright side though - Reiss is also here to sell us on what looks to be an intriguing 2. Bundesliga next year.
TF Fantasy MD34 preview - One more week for fantasy points... and relegation drama
What a season it's been. Record-setting exploits from FC Bayern München and Robert Lewandowski; overachievement from the likes of VfL Wolfsburg, 1. FC Union Berlin and VfB Stuttgart; deep despair for fans of FC Schalke 04. There's one more shot at redemption, not only for the three sides still in relegation trouble (including Flo's beloved Werder Bremen) but also for every fantasy manager who's just points away from their goal. Listen in for tips on how to get there from JT and Flo!
Talking Fussball MD33 wrap - Lewandowski makes history as BVB savors a dream week
Did you ever expect anybody to hit that 40-goal mark again? The one that had stood for 50 YEARS? We weren't convinced it would even happen, but Robert Lewandowski didn't get the message. He drew level with Gerd Müller's mark with a game to spare on Match Day 33 and, well, that's kind of a big deal. Matt and Terry come together to praise the peerless Pole, suss out how Dortmund managed to save their season over the last month, and discuss the continued relentless churn of the Bundesliga coaching carousel.
