Stuttgart's promotion from 2. Bundesliga last season was secured in the final knockings of the season, but there is little danger of them returning to the second tier after a blisteringly entertaining Hinrunde in this season's Bundesliga.

Joe is joined by Berlin-based journalist, OneFootball and Arseblog's finest, Lewis Ambrose. They discuss Stuttgart's background, it's fruitful record with young players and of course the Sporting Director who has headed up the club's charge back to prominence: Sven Mislintat, formerly of Borussia Dortmund and briefly Arsenal.
