Episode 4: Is Bayern Back on Track?

Before the chat about the Mainz match begins, Susie apologizes for putting a jinx on Manuel Neuer in Episode 3. The discussion moves to the match, but more importantly talks about Joshua Kimmich on the ascendant and Franck Ribery’s declining role.

Next, we take a break from the men and move to the women as Jolle breaks down some huge preseason changes for the Frauen and how the team has looked over their first two matches. The ladies also discuss some national team business as the DFB side just narrowly beat the Czech Republic 1:0.

Back to the men, and the Schalke match, which turned out to be a little more complicated than the breezy victory over Mainz. Man of the match James Rodriguez rightly features here, before the trio discusses which Schalke player got owned more on the day.

The last segment answers some listener questions as Bettina, Chris and Susie rate Bayern’s centerbacks, rate Carlo Ancelotti as a coach and talk about how to improve FCBs defense.

Episode 5 will come after the PSG Champions League showdown, and perhaps some very strong opinions will shift. Well, we’ll see.

Thank you, as always, for tuning in. Mia san mia.

Episode 4: Is Bayern Back on Track?

Episode 3: FC Hollywood is back

We were so sorry not to be able to provide you with a podcast last week, but host, Susie Schaaf, was bunkering down for Hurricane Irma. She got out of the storm relatively unscathed, so we were able to bring you a surprisingly great episode. On short notice.

Susie is joined by Christopher Ramm to chat about the Hoffenheim loss, the Anderlecht win (that felt anything but) and the general attitude in the club.

All things are not rosy at Bayern currently, and the pair opine– whether right or wrong– on formations, on player attitudes, and whether Carlo Ancelotti sees through the season. (And maybe a bit about Julian Nagelsmann…)

Let us know you you feel! We love to hear what you think!
