Episode 57 - FCB:VfB ... 2:2 and undefeated yet...winless?!
In this episode, Matt and Travis break down the huge draw on the road at Bayern as well as the reintroduction of what VfB fans all know and love ... MORE DRAMA!
In Part One, we celebrate the fact that VfB is undefeated versus one of the best teams on the planet in 2022 ... while acknowledging that VfB is one of this season's two remaining winless Bundesliga clubs. Huh. Despite the confusion, we ponder how damaging a potential YouTube channel would be, celebrate the fitness of Ata and Serhou, congratulate Bayern on making history while also surviving Chris Führich's "devastating" foul on Kimmich, before wondering where we are going to place the sure-to-be constructed new statue of Serhou Guirassy!
In a brief Part Two, we take a peek at our final match before the international break, a home game versus Champions League participant Eintracht Frankfurt.
In Part Three, we dive into territory we are completely unqualified to discuss, the recent news that management has brought in three former VfB'ers to work with - or for - Alex Wehrle and Sven Mislintat. Before doing so, though, we throw out some thoughts to Sasa, the recently departed players who left on loan, and look forward to the Pokal match versus Bielefeld. After hoping VfB wins the Pokal before we pass away, we try - try! - to break down the recent news that Wehrle is adding Lahm, Khedira, and old friend Christian Gentner to the management team ... without letting Sven know he was adding Lahm, Khedira, and old friend Christian Gentner to the management time. Huh? After most likely making the news more confusing than before, we both agree on one thing - there's a difference between good and bad communication, but at least VfB seems to be really good at one of them! We wrap up Part Three answering some questions regarding the big SGE match this weekend, Silas' form, whether the team on the pitch has momentum on their side, and offer up three true VfB legends to help advise the club!
