Neverkusen Podcast #35

The Neverkusen Crew is back with an exciting podcast conclusion to the 2012/2013 Hinrunde, and we’ve brought along some special friends as guests.  To help us cover the last two competitive matches of 2012, Bayer Leverkusen’s stadium announcer, Klaus Schenkmann (@KlausSchenkmann) was kind enough to join us and give us a glimpse into his relationship with the team and his thoughts on the team’s performances.  Beginning with the El Plastico (trademark pending) against VfL Wolfsburg, to the more satisfying final Bundesliga day victory against Hamburg SV, Klaus shares some great insight into the individual players who make up our beloved SVB.  In Part II, we are joined by Michal Zachodny (@polishscout), the man who knows seemingly everything about every Polish player playing in Europe and beyond.  Michal talks in great detail about SVB’s most recent signing, Arkadiusz Milik, and even teaches Eric how to properly pronounce Milik’s name.  Finally, at the very end of the pod, we announce the winners to our holiday Bayer Leverkusen Trivia Contest (hint…the contest may have been rigged).  We wish all of our listeners a lovely holiday and a most wonderful  2013!!  SVB!!

Special thanks to @fannyheather for recording the chant that introduces the pod!!

Bayer Leverkusen Holiday Trivial Pursuit

The Neverkusen Crew is happy to present its first ever Winter Break Trivia Special, and we hope that you guys want to take part.  This is how it’s going to go down…if you are reading this, then you’ve been sent here by our account on Twitter.  Each day from today until Sunday, we will be tweeting one or two trivia questions related to Bayer Leverkusen, the current squad and its more historical players and moments.  We will also post the questions on our website so that you can go back and answer any ones that you might have missed.

At the end of the week, we will gather the results and declare a winner to the competition.  But in traditional Leverkusen fashion, the winner won’t be the person who answers the most questions correctly.  Rather, the fan who comes in second place (Vize-Fan) will be eligible for a small prize that will be sent by post to you from the Neverkusen Crew.  The “winner” will be the fan who answers the second most questions correctly, and in the event of a tie, we will select the second place respondent who answered, of course, more slowly. The winner will be announced on episode 35 of the Neverkusen Podcast next week. Spice up your holiday season with gift worthy of second place!

You can send us your answers to the questions in a couple of ways:

1) DM on Twitter – if you follow us and we don’t follow you, let us know.  Any fan who wants to play Bayer Leverkusen trivia is someone we want to follow, so make sure to get in touch with our Twitter account: @Neverkusenpod so you can DM us.  You can certainly send us the answer over the traditional Twitter “reply,” but keep in mind thhat others will see your answer.

2) Email – If you want to answer in more than 140 characters, you can send us your email responses to:

3) Website – you can also respond at this website, where we’ll have the questions posted for the duration of the week.  Just go to our Send Us A Question section on the website and fill in your details along with your answer.
