The only English language pod devoted to Werder Bremen

Episode 12 - Torlos, Lost Loves, and Son of Tatsachenentscheidung!

October 22, 2013

This week Patrick is joined by friend of the show, Stephen Reygate (check his stuff out at http://www.papierkugel.org/)

The two recap what was a tepid 0-0 draw with SC Freiburg this past weekend and look to find the positives before looking ahead to next weekend's visit to Bizarro Werder --I'm sorry, Wolfsburg.

Other topics discussed:

- With Peterson out, who scores the goals? Were we even scoring that many to begin with?
- Mielitz remains successful in his attempt to appear competent
- Progress! We can feel reasonably confident of keeping a clean sheet (in some matches)
- The Pitfalls of nostalgia for former players (paging, Mesut Ozil)
- Stephen attempts to give Patrick some optimism regarding Werder's trip to Wolfsburg
- Phantom Goals and Phantom Instant-Replay in Bundesliga Stadia (or: a great difference in the manner Germans and Americans view professional sports matches)

Hey, its nine games into the season and things could be going much worse...life is good.
