We're so damn close now - the Bundesliga kicks off on Friday and Talking Fussball is ready to lay it on the line and tell you how we think the league will shake out. Matt Hermann and Nik Wildhagen are on duty this week - they hit up some of the bigger goings on in the DFB Pokal as well as give their thoughts on the Dembele Affair as well. Produced by Aidan Rantoul. As a treat, we have a taste of Ian Joy of FOX Sports on to share his thoughts on the new season, as well as how the German game is developing in the US market. To hear all of his thoughts, however, you'll have to sign up and subscribe to our new Patreon feed - Check it to find out how we plan to put your support to good use in bringing you even more top-quality content!
