But before they dug into those two topics, Susie and Maurice chat about how they came by their Bayern fandoms, the possibility of an alternate World Cup tournament and Robert Lewandowski’s new hair don’t.
Finally getting into the good stuff, the pair discuss the highly entertaining Dortmund – Bayern match and why it wasn’t the tactical masterclass we’re used to seeing from these two sides when they match up.
The 1:3 score would end up being flattering for an FCB side that managed to be clinical when it counted, and the excellent performances of Kimmich, Ulreich, Coman, Alaba, Suele and Robben get mentioned as well as a superior match from Pulisic.
Moving on to the Nationalelf, Maurice introduces the 58 men that might have a shot at traveling to Russia next summer as he and Susie try to pare down that list to a workable 26-man practice squad and a final 23-man roster (all the while keeping in mind that Jogi Loew is going to do exactly what Jogi Loew does).
They close out the episode briefly discussing the World Cup pots and ideal and not-so-ideal draws that Germany might face. We are happy to be getting back to club football, though, and will be back with you after the Augsburg match. Thank you, as always, for listening! Mia san mia.

The rumour mill is still open as Renato Sanches might yet be on his way out, but Thomas Mueller’s public comments about his particular skill-set — and Carlo Ancelotti’s ambivalence towards it — dominate the second half of the podcast.
Everyone’s least favourite international break is upon us as questions about James Rodriguez’ call up for Colombia are addressed, before the trio top it all off with their Champions League Group B predictions. (Everyone, root for Jan to be right!)

FC Bayern wins the last away game of the season. The German champion defeated the runner-up from Leipzig, with Arjen Robben earning the man of the match award.

Thus far we had only two winners of our player of the month award: Thiago and Robert Lewandowski. In April it is time to honour someone new: Mats Hummels.
