Sound of Football Podcast 373 - Postcard from Dusseldorf


In this special podcast, the Sound Of Football team leave the studio to take a trip to the beautiful city of Dusseldorf in Germany (twinned with Reading). Join them as they get caught up in the excitement and energy of an unfancied Fortuna, safe from relegation and playing with freedom, taking on Europa League chasing Werder Bremen in front of 52,500 fans in the Merkur Spiel Arena.

The following day we take in some Oberliga action (level five of German football) and watch TuRU Dusseldorf take on Union Nettetal. There we're joined by long time friend of the show Jon Hartley making a very welcome third guest appearance on the podcast.

If you listen right to the very end, we've included for you (if you speak German) one of the TuRU head coach's answers in his post-match press conference. Yes that's right, non-league clubs in Germany give post match press conferences in their club houses.

For more information on the podcast and links related to the subjects discussed, check out the Show Notes on our blog.
