In this episode, we cover the recent match, say goodbye to a fellow American, look to the future, and invite a new guest who gives us a ray of hope in these otherwise bleak times ... even if he didn't know he was actually that hopeful!

In Part One, Matt and Travis break down the home loss to FCU and rue bad officiating, bad play, bad finishing, bad historical records, and just downright bad luck.

In Part Two, a loooooooooooooong and somber good bye to 1015 day manager Pellegrino Matarazzo dominates the airwaves as Matt and Travis react to the timing, the emotions, and the apparent "inevitability" of the dismissal of the only manager this podcast as ever known. In the end, after a walk down memory lane of some of their favorite Rino memories, from the opening win versus Heidenheim to the final curtain call of Mata facing the Curve, both fellas ponder what they'd like to see in a new club boss and shockingly nominate themselves to take over!

In Part Three, predictions are made even though no one knows who is in charge of the team, and both are hopeful that the boys can turn things around starting at home against both DSC and Bochum and old friend Philipp Förster.

In Part Four, special guest Hannes, who was quite literally born into the VfB, joins the podcast for the first time ever, giving some insight into why so many of us are so attached to Rino and Sven despite some results that have kept the club winless to start the season. Despite the losses, though, Hannes provides some much needed positivity to keep the brustring faithful looking forward to some positive results come matchday!
