Soccerlens Podcast – The Bundesliga, Klinsmann and sex at the Bernabeu!


On the eighth episode of the Soccerlens Podcast, Stephen Darwin is joined by the Guardian’s German expert and native Bavarian Raphael Honigstein to discuss German football and the Bundesliga.

The show will be looking specifically at the worst ever Autumn Champions, German WAGS, Jurgen Klinsmann and sex at the Bernabeu (although unrelated might we hastily add!)

Among the points of discussion raised with Raphael Honigstein were:

  • Hamburg, Bremen and the UEFA Cup semi-final
  • The demise of Bayern Munich this season
  • Hillsborough and safe standing German stadiums
  • The Bundesliga as the ultimate fan experience
  • Nives Celcius and German WAGS
  • Plus more on top of that!

  1. Hi guys, hope you enjoy the show. Just wanted to point out that during the podcast I state that Germany did well at World Cup 2006 narrowly losing to Italy in the final.

    Obviously that wasn’t the case and despite having a fantastic tournament and finishing third, I thought I better cover my tracks before being shot down!

  2. loving it. Rafa’s always good for a quick punchline.

    ‘I’m sure Ashley won’t mind’ and ‘that’s about the only action he’ll ever see at the Bernabeu’ are my two favs from this one.
