VfB Stuttgart Americana
Episode 76 - VfB:FCB ... 1:2 and Sven's Talking Bruno!
In this episode, Travis, Ted, and Jeff try to do the impossible - get positive about VfB!
In the introduction, Travis welcomes back super tech-savvy co-host Jeff before moving on to Part One, some OFC Shout Outs that include celebrating ... Travis. Whee!
In Part Two, Ted and Travis take on the task of trying to break down what turned out to be a narrow loss at home to the perennial power that is Bayern. The lineup, Anton versus Davies, Silas' struggles, Bredlow's first mishap, Bruno's subs, and the frustrating nature of the club to play up to great opponents but down to poorer ones are all discussed. Not wanting to dwell on the negative, the guys end the segment by taking a look at the mess at the bottom of the table which ... well ... that's kind of negative, too, isn't it?
In Part Three, News & Headlines, the fellas react to Sven's first public comments since his split from VfB and focus on one point in particular - is Bruno the right coach for this particular squad? And special thanks to @Danny1893 and BILD's @philmaisel for helping with translation!
Part Four is a preview of the match on the road (oh gawd) versus a Champion's League team (oh gawd) that has only two losses at home since October (oh, come on). We'll let you guess how this segment ends!
Questions are asked and answers are given in Part Five as Jeff takes over the hosting abilities while the final segment of episode 76 consists of Jeff (who may or may not even know he's a co-host) giving his predictions on matchday 24 before ending the pod by praising ... a completely different team and a completely different podcast.
And we make an ill-fated "proof is in the pudding" reference. Yikes.

OFC Man of the Match
Congrats first time MOTM winner Juan Perea, who not only edged out teammate Hiroki in a narrow vote, but scored his first goal as well. We're sure THIS honor is even MORE significant than that maiden goal!
