Bayer Leverkusen Trivia Question #1


What year did Leverkusen win their only DFB Pokal, against whom, what was the score, and who scored?

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.

Thanks for taking part in this competition and good luck to everyone!!  -Neverkusen Crew

Neverkusen Podcast #34

Well, it was bound to happen at some point. Fresh off of a disappointing 2-3 loss to Hanover 96, the Neverkusen Crew are nevertheless in decent spirits because Bayer Leverkusen are still sitting pretty in second place just ahead of those DAB-drinking bumble bees from Dortmund. Patrick, Tom, and Eric (but without Frieda, who really exists, you have to believe us!) discuss the recent setback, the A-Jugend demolition of Rosenborg Trondheim, and Bayer General Manager, Wolfgang Holzhaeuser’s, thoughts on stripping fans of their clothes to see what they could be hiding (hint: the perv is for it). Join us! You can do no less (you literally can’t)!

Neverkusen Podcast #33

We’re #2! We’re #2!! We’re #2!!! The Neverkusen Crew is back from an almost month-long hiatus with a power-packed, star-studded, freshly-shaved episode (33) of the Neverkusen Podcast. While we were away, Bayer04 has climbed up the proverbial ladder to second place, and now every team (besides those douche bags from Bavaria) is looking up at our bottoms as we assume our rightful place at the right hand of whomever is going to win the salad plate. Remember, people, 2nd place is the new 1st place! Fuckin’ stoked!

Neverkusen Podcast #31

These English weeks are killers! The Neverkusen Podcast is back with episode 31, an ambitious look at 3 matches and 3 victories from the last 7 days. The Crew reviews the Europa League tie against Rapid Vienna, the historic super-upset at the Allianz Arena, and the bloody trench battle against Arminia Bielefeld, all the while drinking up the victorious atmosphere and the copious quantities of alt bier. Bayer Leverkusen is on a roll…your chance to jump on the bandwagon without looking like a loser is growing smaller!

Neverkusen Podcast #30

Hello, hello, hello and welcome to the 30th episode of the Neverkusen Podcast. This week we break down the match against FSV Mainz and their psycho GK, Christian Wetklo, discuss the loss of Bayer Leverkusen’s current sponsor, update you on the new fan initiative to increase home advantage at the BayArena, and try not to soil our pants at the prospect of playing Bayern Munich next week. In between all of that, Tom is helped with his English, Stefan Kiessling’s new daughter receives waaay too much attention, and beer is consumed. Just another week at Neverkusen headquarters….thanks for joining us!

Neverkusen Podcast #29

On episode 29 of the Neverkusen Podcast, the crew welcomes back two old friends – Neverkusen Crew OG, Frieda, and VfB Stuttgart super-fan, @Jens1893. In part one, Frieda shares her experiences traveling to Norway in order to watch Bayer Leverkusen’s most recent EL match against Ruusenbuurg Truundheiuum, and also leaves a bleeding FC Koeln fan lying in the street. In part two, fresh on the heels of Bruno Labbadia’s Wutrede, Jens provides one of his own against a trainer that Leverkusen fans remember all too well. Even Hamburg fans can join in with Leverkusen fans to say, “We are all Stuttgart.” Best of luck to you, Jens, we hope your wish comes true soon!

Neverkusen Podcast #28

Two consecutive victories in the Bundesliga find the Neverkusen Crew in great spirits and high on life (and BayArena Dutch grass). Patrick, Tom and Eric discuss the wins against Augsburg and Greuther Fuerth, and toast our Capitano, Michael Ballack, as well as Sidney Sam (although he really should know better). Our favorite Brazilian, Renato Augusto, gets the once-over from the Crew, and we also look forward to the upcoming matches against EL opponent Roseborg Trondheim and Bundesliga rival VfB Stuttgart. And we discuss a subject near and dear to Tom’s heart, more standing places in the BayArena. Thanks for listening!
