We’re back! Only three games into the season #lazy. We’re joined (for the second pod in a row!) by Ryan to talk about Bayer’s match against Hoffenheim. Not the best result, but maybe not the worst…whatever the hell that means. This pod came out about a week later than intended, but enjoy it before the next match!
Coming at you with a short but loaded podcast to discuss two of Bayer Leverkusen’s most recent signings, Kerem Demirbay and Nadiem Amiri. Lots of excitement around both of these former Hoffenheim players, one the most expensive signing, the other a steal at any price! Ryan, a loyal fan of the Sinsheim team, talks to Eric about what Bayer Leverkusen can expect from their new additions. Have a beer and have a listen.
Holy shit, we did a thing! The Neverkusen Crew, minus Patrick plus one baby, looks back at a really surprising season that resulted in a CL spot. Markus, one of our earliest guests ever (episode 19!!) is welcomed back to give us the low-down on the charity drive that he initiated at the beginning of the season…such an awesome idea! We got beer, we got babies, and we got Bayer…the killer Bs. What more do you want?
Leverkusen went into this week’s match with a snowball’s chance in Hannover, but that turns out to be a pretty good chance, actually. In a match to rival any other in terms of extreme conditions, Bayer were able to overcome a second-half comeback by H96 to squeeze out a victory in a blizzard. Our good friend Ansgar joins us to discuss Sunday’s match, consider the virtues of DollBall (are there any?), and marvel at the most ridiculous shot on goal of the year. That sound you hear is Genki Haraguchi still cursing his luck…oh, and there’s a little extra about Doll at the very end, so listen past the outro music.
Have we got a massive episode for you this week! Fresh off of a convincing victory against Fortuna Duesseldorf and looking ahead to Krasnodar and Dortmund, the Neverkusen Crew is joined by three friends in this two-part episode. In part one, Fortuna fan and overall excellent user of the Twitter platform, Thorsten Schaar, talks to Eric about Sunday’s match and the shining light that is Friedhelm “PeaceHelmet” Funkel. In part two, Andreas and Anna drop by to look ahead to the Europa League match and to talk all things Bayer Leverkusen. This two-parter is a long one, so you better put some beer in the fridge…
Bayer Leverkusen have scored 11-3 goals in the last three Bundesliga matches, and if we can overlook that debacle against Heidenheim then everything looks rosy! It’s certainly the case that our match against FSV Mainz has only increased Peter Bosz’s cult of personality, but we’re ok with it if these results continue. We’re thrilled to have podcaster extraordinaire Conor Garrett on in this episode to dissect the Mainz match – pressure him into continuing the DrierPackPod, people!! Grab a pint while we grab points and enjoy!
Oh, snap! Two podcasts in two weeks! It’s almost like we’re trying to take this podcasting thing more seriously! Well, this week we have a close look at the WOB/LEV match from Saturday…a happy result, but still a few questions. Like, does any Bayer fan value Kevin Volland at all? Or is it #freealario? Joining us to discuss the match is Tom in England, who’s been a WOB fan for the last decade, and our old friend Marco in Freiburg. Grab a beer, grab a snack, close your eyes, and settle back.
Well, it’s been too long, as they say, but the Neverkusen Crew is back (minus 1) to tickle your eardrums with the dulcet sounds of our Bayer love….wow, it really has been too long! This week Frieda, Patrick and Eric welcome second-time guest Ali back to the podcast to take a quick (like, really fast) look at the Hinrunde before considering what lies ahead. The match against BMG is considered in the scope of Peter Bosz’s signing, and Patrick tells us how much weight he’s put on in a year of marriage. This was a lot of fun…we’ll be back for next week’s match against WOB. Enjoy!
