In episode 64, Travis, Matt, and Hannes attempt to break down the most recent match, the thrilling last minute cramp-inducing victory over our Swabian rivals!


Or are they?!


In Part One, Travis and Matt discuss the win over FC Augsburg and touch on the impressive home supporters, VfB setting (unfortunate) league records, the play of Dan-Axel versus Luca, VAR's ruling on the Sosa non-handball, the backheel pass of super-sub Tiago, and finally Waldy Anton quite literally giving every inch of his being to the club.


In Part Two, we revisit the derby question as we recruit Hannes for another segment of "Help from Hannes" as he tries to explain just that, was this match a derby? He goes on to discuss the difference between derbies and rivalries and why it's just oh so hard to root against clubs like Freiburg ... even though we'll do our best to try!


In Part Three, Headlines and Questions are pondered, and since it's been a (thankfully) quiet week, Matt and Travis focus on listener questions regarding the current state of the coaching staff and some potentially key players and for the first time ever (politely) disagree with a listener! The disagreements don't stop there as Travis disagrees with Matt regarding Wimmer, Matt disagrees with a listener regarding Luca, and Luca and Dan-Axel probably disagree with two untalented fools like Travis and Matt talking about them in any form or fashion.


In Part Four, the upcoming matches versus 'Gladbach and Hertha are previewed, with Matt and Travis trying to figure out what is stronger - a foal or a crocodile - before shrugging their shoulders and agreeing with Hannes ... because who really knows?!


All that plus the bad editing and poor sound quality you've all come to love!
