What a matchday! After the disappointing mid-week result against Monaco in the Champions League, Bayer Leverkusen have announced their domestic intentions (by way of 21 fouls) with a convincing 2-0 victory over Borussia Dortmund. Good friend Stefan Buczko joins Patrick and Eric after losing a bet involving, of all things(!), FC Scheiss…err, Schalke. It’s always a pleasure having him on, especially on days when Stefan can’t gloat :-). We go into detail about Saturday’s match, and basically ignore what happened against Monaco on Tuesday – the less said the better. Drink this one in, it’s a lot of fun!
Here we go! Have a listen before the CL match starts! Aliya and Eric talk FSV Mainz and Champions League. So much goodness…the leader of Russia’s biggest Bayer04 fan club weighs in, and we explore it all! This is the best thing you can listen to prior to the Monaco match. Which we will win 2-0!
Danger! Danger! Danger! It’s another episode of the Neverkusen podcast and the crew sits down this week with special guest and massive Leverkusen fan Luca in part one to discuss the AMAZEBALLS weekend match against HSV (hahahaha), and in part two we talk to Finland football expert Kyle about that hattrick hero who has captured our hearts, Joel “Danger” Pohjanpalo. With four goals in 30 minutes, it shouldn’t be too long before those bastards at Bayern are sniffing around him…dicks.
It’s the end of the international break! Praise Jeebus! Time to get back to the only team that matters, Bayer 04 Leverkusen. In episode 123, Eric is joined by Bayer fan Andreas Odendahl in Germany, and the two discuss the transfer saga of the past couple of weeks. What once looked like a team deeper than a Chicago-style pizza is now, well…not quite as deep, I guess. Naturally, that has led to some questions, such as why get rid of so many center-backs, who can also play in the defensive midfield? What’s our relationship to FSV Mainz? How good is Hakan? Can we #trustinboldt? Eric and Andreas tackle these questions (and more!) in a transfer-themed episode you’re guaranteed to love!*

The 2016/2017 Bundesliga season is upon us, ladies and gents, and Bayer Leverkusen are eyeing another top-4 finish. One of the teams standing in their way is Borussia Moenchengladbach, who have adopted a very similar approach to Bayer during the offseason and added depth to their team at almost every position. Having tuned up with a resounding victory in the CL qualification playoff, BMG caught Bayer unlucky on Saturday and took the three points. The Neverkusen Crew talk to Manuel Breuer from the Vollraute Abroad podcast about the match, the Champions League, the DFB Pokal, and beer. THANK GOD BAYER FUSSBALL IS BACK!
The 2016/2017 season is almost upon us and the Neverkusen Crew is back with beer, balls, and Bayer. In part one, the Crew dissect this exciting and formidable team that Jonas Boldt and Rudi Voeller have put together, focusing on specific players and predicting what an ideal Bayer lineup would look like (spoiler: there is no ideal lineup…they’re all excellent). In part two, football friend and OFC die-hard, Markus Horn from Blog Rot & Weiss, joins us to discuss how the season has started for the team. It’s been too long since we’ve had a Kickers Offenbach update, so grab a beer, kick back, and let your thoughts turn yet again to football.
Deutscher Trizemeister, deutscher Trizemeister, deutscher Trizemeister, SVB!!! The boys from Bayer 04 Leverkusen finish the season in 3rd place, which has to be considered a huge success considering some of the low points we went through this season. Patrick, Tom, and Eric sit down for a quick recap of the FCI match and talk about their players of the season and what we can hope for (expect!) next year. It’s been a helluva season…up and down…ultimately rewarding. To the team that drives us crazy and with whom we can’t live without…we love you, Bayer 04 Leverkusen!!
Oleeee, oleeee, oleee, oleee…der SVB! Six wins in a row, a tight grip on third place, and our destiny in our own hands. That is Bayer 04 Leverkusen right now. Patrick, Tom, and Eric (miss you, Frieda!) get together after way too much time apart to discuss the match against Schalke with an eye to the last three matches. The feeling right now is euphoria, so enjoy it while it lasts, Bayer fans!
The Neverkusen Crew are back to lake a rather painful look back at the last couple of weeks. Tom and Eric are joined by old friend Kevin Scheuren, who definitely uses the opportunity to get some stuff that’s been building up off his chest. This time it’s Rudi and Roger who are on the receiving end of the Wutrede, and it’s not a bad look for them. We also say our goodbyes to long-time stadium announcer, Klaus Schenkmann, who is calling it a day at the end of the season. He will be greatly missed as the voice of the team, and we wish him all the best going forward in everything he does! S V B !
