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.
