Any Germans on here hockey fans? I prefer the NHL, but the playoff games of the DEL are quite spectacular to see. Currently watching Düsseldorf vs. Hamburg, and it's a fantastic game! 4:3!

I'm a Phoenix Coyotes fan, but I don't really watch I just keep track on my phone.

I wouldn't watch the Coyotes either

 

I watched some of the German hockey games when I was there (I remember watching Ingolstadt VS Koeln at least), actually pretty exciting stuff! Obviously nowhere near what I am used to quality-wise, but the pace was high enough, and the entertainment value was great.... the goaltending was better than expected, too.

I don't think that Bayern's extreme dominance will last that long. Schweinsteiger is 30, Lahm, Robben Ribery all 31. And Leverkusen and Wolfsburg on their way up. BVB will come back stronger as well. A well run club, surely? Perhaps even Gladbach and Werder can continue to improve and challenge FCB in the medium time frame.

 

 

When a person who never cared about football declares that the game is meaningless, she is just plainly and obviously right. When a person who has cared about football for many years does the same, it is heartbreaking. You can only pray that she is wrong

 

:P

 

I think probably every generation claims that football has lost its innocence as it becomes of age. Each with some right (some probably even more than this). Perhaps is the coming of age also a part of it. I too, find myself in general caring  less and less, but I believe there will still be nights when I go to bed absurdly elated or infuriated by the happenings on some green foreign field. And I do think that Bremen's turnaround embodies some of the virtues that are still occasionally there in professional football.

Not to mention Xabi Alonso's age.... and to think that they just gave away the best midfielder in the world at age 25....

I HOPE you're wrong, but surely there's somebody who looks promising on the U-20's or somewhere for Bayern.

Tell me about it. I had a dreadful footie weekend. Almost identical situations at my beloved clubs. A failed shot at the Champions League spots after a bitter defeat by the fourth, at home. I couldn't believe it and was sooo pissed off. I forced myself to watch the decent classico game for the sake of seeing football in positive light to end the weekend.

 

 

For some reason I had to get this off my chest again :lol:

I guess what I mean is that as long as the genuine passion for a club and the game is there - football is not dead - in fact it's pretty much alive and awesome!

Perhaps the break this weekend has one good point.  Not only for BVB and Schalke where many of the Kids from the Harten school are fans, but I gather some of the Leverkusen fans who work for Bayer were on the plane.  At the moment everything else is of no importance!

Still trying to figure out how everyone gets their team's logo under the profile picture... What do you do to get it? Is there a catch?

You just enter your favorite club in the "Team you support" thingy and it should show up automatically, unless the Admins didn't implement your club's logo yet.

At my gym there are several people who will loudly sing along with the shitty trance-pop they play there.

 

And then there's me mumbling they should shut the fuck up.

The music at the gym is on very loud, so it's hard to ignore either way.

Together with some friends I'm planning to bring along a friend for a football match in Germany. Purely because of geography, we'll go to either Schalke or Dortmund (God forbid). I haven't looked into this in a while, so could the Schalke and Dortmund people here give me an indication of what a ticket costs on average?

Under "Tageskarten" you can see the prices for a single matchday ticket.
