The episode title is the penultimate line of our club hymn in Spanish. Given the subject matter, it felt most apt. Wir werden ewig leben. We will live forever.
Wilson, Bas, Mark, & Kyle are finally joined by Cherrie for this episode of Mattuschka's Right Peg.
We talk about the 2-1 defeat in Wolfsburg and look ahead to our historic first Champions League game in the club's history away to record champions Real Madrid.
We end the podcast talking about a man that meant so much to Union and the Unioner among many others. Matti Michalke passed away on August 18th after a serious illness. A memorial service for Matti was held at the Stadion An der Alten Försterei last Sunday. Bas shares his thoughts from the service and gives us a glimpse into the impact Matti had in his incredible life.
Bas' book 'Abnormaal Gewoon – Een Nederlander Verklaart Union Berlin' (Abnormally Normal - A Dutchman Explains Union Berlin) is out now. If you happen to understand Dutch, or know anyone who does, the book is available here.
