Talking Fussball MD16 wrap - Bayern has the last laugh as title rivals fall flat

Episode Summary

Nik Wildhagen welcomes Rick Joshua back on the show to tackle all the stories from Bundesliga Match Day 16.

Episode Notes

Yes, we know it's January already but honestly we had to wait until now to crown FC Bayern München Herbstmeister. That peculiar title ('autumn champion') usually goes to the side in the lead going into the winter break, but this season's odd calendar means the designation was up for grabs until this weekend. What happened? Well, Bayern won and all the rest of the teams in the top four lost and the Bavarians claim the crown. That turn of events naturally makes this week's guest pundit Rick Joshua pleased - he and Nik talk about the title race slipping away, as well as the tarnish on Union's big win, the last minute drama in Stuttgart, and the swaggering return of Luka Jovic. Reiss' rescue this week: Bremen's battling win to get a leg up on the rest of the back of the pack.
