Episode 18 – Mainz and Paderborn

Susie and MSR’s Chris talk about those two matches, plus a bit about future coaching decisions and just what is going on with the Bundesliga these days.

Mainz is first as Chris explains their midfield press and how it made life difficult for Bayern initially while Susie questions using a ‘B” side here and bringing out all the guns for the Paderborn game.

Sandro Wagner’s first start is worth a mention, but the pair first segue off to chat about the ever-evolving news on who Bayern Munich’s next trainer will be.

A very tidy 6-0 victory to reach the semi finals of the DFB Pokal competition is on deck as Susie and Chris discuss what went so much better for FCB here than against Mainz 05.

The podcast closes out with a couple of quite important topics: 1) As the team comes to full fitness, who will be starting week in and week out? 2) What the heck is wrong with the Bundesliga this season? Why can’t anyone even attempt to catch up to Bayern at this point?

Thank you, as always, for tuning in! We’ll catch up with you after a very tasty Schalke match! Mia san mia.

Episode 5: The Eyebrow

Host Susie Schaaf is joined by French Football Weekly and IBWM editor Jeremy Smith, as well as Mia San Rot’s very own Tobi, to chat about the Wolfsburg draw and the PSG loss.

Was there anything else you wanted to discuss? Ha!

Behind those two matches lurks the elephant in the room as we say “Arrivederci!” to Carlos Ancelotti and his rather brief tenure at Bayern Munich.

The Wolfsburg draw is regrettably glanced over as the team had their minds solely on Paris and the calamity there and the next day. After discussing PSG, the trio get down to the Ancelotti firing. Who’s the interim coach? Are Bayern going to hire Thomas Tuchel? What does this mean for the hope of Julian Nagelsmann?

As always, thank you for listening. Mia san mia.
