After a demoralizing defeat to FSV Mainz, the Neverkusen Crew take a much needed vacation by traveling to India on holiday. Well, only one of us traveled there, but the other three are living vicariously through her. Frieda briefly joins Tom, Patrick and Eric from Mumbai with her impressions of the the country, before the three lads return to the football to talk about the loss. In part two, we look at a busy week of Bayer news including Ballack’s testimonial (he’s not dead, Eric), the U19 team’s possible CL participation, and some team contracts. The pod is just long enough to drink three beers to. Enjoy!
