Neverkusen Fussball Manager + Awards 2011/12

The season 2011/12 is coming to an end which will hopefully see the Werkself landing 5th place and with that the direct qualification to the Europa League (Eurovision) group stage.

It’s time therefore to gather your thoughts on the present season and to plan the next one.

We would like to incorporate your ideas and feedback into our next (21st) episode. Here is what we want to know from our loyal listeners:

1. Be a Neverkusen Manager for a day (Edition 2011/12)

Current squad situation:
GKs: Bernd Leno,René Adler,David Yelldell,Fabian Giefer
DFs: Daniel Schwaab,Manuel Friedrich,Ömer Toprak,Bastian Oczipka, Michal Kadlec,Vedran Corluka,Danny da Costa,Gonzalo Castro, Philipp Wollscheid
MFs: Stefan Reinartz,Simon Rolfes,Lars Bender,Michael Ballack,Renato Augusto,Michael Ortega,Tranquillo Barnetta,Sidney Sam,Karim Bellarabi,André Schürrle, Hajime Hosogai
CFs: Stefan Kießling,Eren Derdiyok,Samed Yesil

Who would you kick out and bring in? Keep it realistic and remember that it should add up roughly to the same (25 players).  We assuming for now that only Adler and Ballack are leaving and Wollscheid and Hosogai are joining us for sure.  If you want to keep Corluka (8 million euros purchase option) or/and Michael Ortega (5 million euros purchase option), don’t go too mad with the rest of your signings or balance it out with fruitful sales.  Loan players who you can order back to the BayArena are: Jens Hegeler, Thanos Petsos, Lucas and Zvonko Pamic

Rudi Völler and Wolfgang Holzhäuser need also to take a decision on the coaching position.  Should Sami Hyypiä and Sascha Lewandowski stay on or who would be a realistic and good option for us next season?
