Episode 70 - VfB:M05 and TSG:VfB ... and carrots or currants?!
In this episode, Matt joins to chat up the two final matches of the first half of the season ... that took place in what is actually the second half of the season.
Anyway, we start off with some shout outs to the OFC winners of the week in TippSpiel, Bundesliga Fantasy, and our very own Twitter predictions before diving into matchday #16 and #17, two matches that were almost identical in terms of lineups, mistakes, tactical changes, and, sadly, results. In doing so a new drinking game is discussed while breakdowns of the winners and not-so-winners of the first 17 matches are noted, with commentary regarding Silas' struggles, Anton at Right Back, Ito as the new Sosa, the officials hating Stuttgart, Sehrou's finishing, Ahamada's mishaps, Wohlgemuth's warnings, Bruno's desire, the passion of the supporters, the hope that Perea brings, and, of course, a shirtless Dino.
In Part Two, the rumors surrounding Tibidi's departure and Josuha Guilavogui's possible arrival brought up with Matt bringing a rather positive spin to the potential expensive arrival of Wolfsburg's former #6.
Part Three, usually the Question and Answer period, turns into more of a listener lament session as Matt makes a case to be the new VfB president while the guys do try to figure out what the difference between Rino's results and Bruno's results are turning out to be and come to the conclusion that ... well ... yeah.
Episode 70 wraps up with a rather bleak look at the upcoming match at Leipzig before Matt saves the day with a brief ray of positivity ... before Travis brings the whole thing crashing back down again.
And if that's not enough for you, the guys give cookie baking tips on the difference between adding carrots or currants to family cookies.
Yep, this episode is JUST AS GOOD as that cookie sounds!
