    The Rise of Kai-walker

    The Rise of Kai-walker

    In this episode, Musa and Ryan, still in slight disbelief that the Bundesliga is actually back, assess the second weekend of games since the restart. They wonder at the rise of Kai Havertz, praise Julian Brandt and Alphonso Davies, the promising signs for Hertha and Augsburg and the worrying ones for Schalke. Also, there's a lot of Star Wars and whether or not fan noise should be used to cover up the echo of empty stadiums, before playing out with People in Control.
