Episode 81 - VfB:BVB ... 3:3 and what just happened?!
In this episode Matt and Travis spend waaaaaay too much time talking about one match ... but what a match to talk about, eh?!
Part One starts with some shout outs to OFC members, Gary Preston, and yet another VfB record that we somehow tie to Matt's ice hockey career.
Part Two is a long-winded break down of what turned out to be the match of the weekend, VfB's improbable comeback against supposed title contenders BVB. The fellas wax poetic about how black and yellow were actually perfect opponents for the white and red, the play of Dan-Axel, Dino's double yellow, Hoeneß's half-time speech, VAR ruining Sehrou's day, the impact of Josha and Enzo, super subs Tanguy and Silas, and the amazing - once again - home support.
In Part Three, the big News and Headlines of the day are pondered as thanks are thrown out to the DFL for moving around the relegation playoff dates in case VfB makes it to the Pokal final while more eyebrows are raised at some of Alex Wehrle's question answering ability... or lack thereof. Speaking of questions, some great ones are tossed around, including thoughts on the team's mentality, what has the new manager changed that's led to this successful run, could Silas' goal be the momentum shift to change his season, and just how good is the man of the hour, Josha Vagnoman.
Episode 81 wraps up with a look at the upcoming road match versus the Mighty Flaming Pineapples, otherwise known as FC Augsburg, where the boys in the brustring haven't enjoyed too many away wins. But that doesn't stop Matt and Travis from being overly optimistic anyway!
