Musa and Ryan open the mailbag for the first time this year! Before that, they touch on this week’s Copa Libertadores semifinals, which saw Palmeiras and Santos progress to an all-Brazilian final (4:20), Holstein Kiel’s win on penalties against Bayern in the DFB Pokal (5:49), and Mauricio Pochettino’s first trophy as a manager (13:02). They then answer questions on Stadio behind the scenes (14:04), including what happens when they go for a break, how they watch football, and what sweet goods Musa is currently favoring (23:10). They also discuss how tactical rigidity and attacking jazz can coexist (24:50), whether managerial sackings are down due to clubs being more cautious during the pandemic (30:18), what’s next for Thomas Tuchel (35:21), ideal signings for their clubs during this window (39:34), and some of the best live football moments they have experienced (41:53).
