Neverkusen Podcast 142

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!

Bayer’s 40th season in the Bundesliga has started much like its last several seasons. A less than convincing preseason, a squeaker in their first Pokal match, and a deserved loss to the horsies in Moenchengladbach after an abysmal second half of something you can’t really call football. And to show our support, the Neverkusen crew recorded a pod with some shoddy equipment (sorry about the sound), only fielded three (miss ya, Pat), and then let Kirsten Schlewitz from the @UnusualEfforts website/podcast run roughshod (not really, of course!). She kills it…all without coffee! We’ll try to improve the sound quality for the next pod – thanks for your patience!

It’s been an up and down start to the Rueckrunde, and Sunday’s match against Schalke was one of those down moments. Thankfully, we’ve got some friends to help us break down the match and Eric welcomes Ali to help argue the case for Leverkusen, while Jack from the FC Schalke 04 Pod stops by to rub the match in our faces (in a kindly fashion). In a battle between two young, hot-commodity coaches Tedesco took this round with some good coaching and gutty performances by his team. Leverkusen, while controlling much of the match, didn’t threaten much, and this time HH might have gotten his tactics wrong. All this and more inside this week’s episode!

Ouch…Berlin put the herthan Bayer over the weekend. Fortunately, Tom and Eric don’t spend too much time talking about that match and focus instead on the Pokal quarterfinal (Eric kept saying semifinal) victory over Werder Bremen. Joining us to discuss this match is Patrick from Radio Free Weser (@RFWPod on Twitter) – this time, for the first time, as the losing party *fist pump* Patrick is a great sport in part 1, and in part 2 Eric and Tom briefly discuss some of the previous four matches, answer some listener questions, and sorta look ahead to the Pokal semifinal against Bayern. Jam-packed episode, kids, so tuck in!

It’s the Rueckrunde, girls and boys, and it certainly started out exactly like the Hinrunde! Dammit! Bayern is a cut above, that can’t be argued, but there’s plenty to discuss for Bayer Leverkusen going forward. Tom, Patrick and Eric hit up Ali (A_AliB04) to discuss this mostly forgettable game.
It’s a great chat and we’re just so happy the ball is rolling again! Staerke Bayer!

Neverkusen Podcast 137

Double your fun with the most recent episode of the Neverkusen Podcast, in which Tom and Eric talk to friend of the pod, @Kristaldo1907, about the Bayer Leverkusen/FC Augsburg match. It wasn’t the prettiest of matches, but the conversation around the game and the individual players is pretty sparkling…if we do say so ourselves. Six matches undefeated, but a lot to work on over the next two weeks! Keep at it, Heiko!

Neverkusen Podcast 136

Frieda and Eric continue the short, sharp shocks of pods with this 30-minute beauty looking back at the match against K*ln. Bayer Leverkusen can once again stake the claim that they are indeed Die Macht am Rhein and undefeated in five matches! We hit the Pokal match against Berlin a little as well, and talk choreos at the beginning. Lots of good stuff in a small package! Enjoy!

Neverkusen Podcast 135

Wow! What a lovely Saturday in Moenchengladbach! We can’t let a 5-1 scoreline go unnoticed, so Patrick and Eric got together for a bite-sized review of the match. We don’t go much into the analysis (do we ever?) but we gloat, laugh, and are genuinely surprised by the result. Hopefully this is a step in a positive direction and the first of at least three consecutive victories :-).

Neverkusen Podcast 134

Back with a South American flair (or flare), the Neverkusen Crew of Patrick and Eric catch up with Bayer Leverkusen and talk transfers and Schalke in part one. There is a distinct sense of optimism in the camp, which is a nice change from the past several months. Exciting young players like Leon Bailey and Lucas Alario are making immediate impact on the team and making those around them that much better. In part two, Eric is joined by Tomas Incze, a Bayer Leverkusen and River Plate fan, who is well-placed to talk more about the transfer of Lucas Alario and the impact he can make on the team. 1 goal and 1 assist in his first match is certainly a good start! Enjoy the pod!

Neverkusen Podcast 133

Hooooooly shit, it’s been a long time since we rapped at you, but we hope this makes up for lost time. Super Bayer fan Edgar Avalos joins Frieda, Tom, and Eric for a rollicking good time to discuss Bayer’s off-season and the DFB Pokal match. Lord knows where our boys will land this season, but who cares? Our fans are the best in the world! And that’s what it’s all about.
