For the new Bundesliga season, BundesPremierLeague is rolling out a new feature: a podcast called Ten minute Bundesliga previews that you can find on Soundcloud as well.
The basic idea and the reason for the podcast is to give a quick summary of each team before the new Bundesliga season starts in late August. If you missed the transfer window, tuned out soccer for the summer, and\or were too busy watching the Olympics or the Euros to keep up with your club’s events, this is your chance to catch up. While the episodes and the previews are aiming to introduce the Bundesliga to a larger English-speaking audience, there will be more than enough content for die-hard fans to get a couple of nuggets for the upcoming season. I mean don’t you wanna impress your friends before the Bundesliga kicks off?
The format is as follows: we will start by briefly discussing the club’s background and history, moving on to last season’s performance. That is followed by some offseason transfers and finally we give a preview of next year, ending with a season prediction, with a number indicative of their predicted finish in the 16\17 season.
We find FC Augsburg at number 14. Their list of coaching prodigies (Tuchel, Nagelsmann and Weinzierl) is impressive, and the Bavarian side are always capable of putting together a surprising run of games. Playmaker “Air Caiuby” aka the man Marouane Fellaini wishes to be has grown into a borderline Bundesliga star, and Icelandic striker Alfred Finnbogason banged in some timely goals down the stretch last season. While FCA don’t play the most exciting brand of football, they take and allow loads of shots, play lots of wild 3-3 type of draws and they even have one of the best and coolest goalies in Marwin Hitz. How did their offseason pan out and what kind of a 16\17 season can we expect from Augsburg? Listen and find out in our Ten Minute Preview below!
If you liked what you heard you can follow us on Soundcloud and of course feel free to share it on any and all social media!
Thanks and stay tuned for more Ten Minute Bundesliga Previews to be posted in the next couple of days as the Bundesliga gets underway in less than a week.
