Talking Fussball is the longest-running podcast about German football in English. If you love the Bundesliga, you’ve come to the right podcast.

Bundesliga MD4 - Dortmund keep hold on the summit, VAR stokes controversy

So much ground for James Thorogood and Alex Chaffer to cover this week! Just when it seemed Hannover 96 might make it through the match day as the top dog in the Bundesliga, BVB came along and scythed through Cologne in Sunday's final match to put that storyline to bed. Stefan Buczko (ESPN, Yellow Wall Podcast) stops by to talk a bit of Schwarz-Gelben fussball - an interview that Patreon supporters will hear a lot more of.

The big weekend of VAR-induced controversies (Koen Casteels' knockout knee to Christian Gentner's head, Cologne's whistle-stickler protest) comes in for plenty of discussion, along with some Bundesliga Fantasy talk and a full MD4 round-up, including goals and players of the week.

This week's English Week means we'll be back on Thursday to cover MD5...but you'll have to be a supporter to get it, so get on over to Patreon and sign up!
