Talking Fussball MD4 wrap - Getting ready for Europe and chatting Union Berlin w/ Kit Holden
What with the UEFA Champions League and Europa League getting started this week, perhaps we shouldn't have been surprised to see a bit of a low-wattage weekend.
Four 1-1 draws and only one team scoring more than two goals made for a few less fireworks, but didn't dent our enthusiasm for this week's guest. Matt sat down with his old pal Kit Holden, who's been working the Union beat for Berlin's Tagesspiegel newspaper. He's got lots to say about the Köpenickers' solid start, as well as ideas about which German sides have the best chances to put a real dent into European competition this season.
In the middle of the show, Nik Wildhagen talks to Christian Woop, who's just completed a study on how the German press cover RB Leipzig - hear more of that interview on our Patreon page!
