The gang are back to take down three matches in 30 minutes by looking back at the games against K*ln, Bayern, and Frankfurt and assessing the pretty favorable results under Hannes Wolf.

Neverkusen Podcast 161

What a rollercoaster of a week for Bayer Leverkusen, and you can certainly hear the confusion and disbelief (unfassbar!) in Eric’s, Jase’s and Frankie’s voices. It gets so bad, at one point Jase combines Demirbay and Bellarabi into an entirely new player! And we still criticize him! This one comes in just under a snappy …

“Fackin’ pish” might be the way to describe Saturday’s match, but this episode of the Neverkusen Podcast is anything but!
