    Yepp, but only the non-alcoholic beer because alcoholic beverages werent allowed and this for a good reason.
    Very tensed atmosphere, especially between Ultra groups and people who wanted the change.
    Had some nasty dispute with them myself, very provoking looks and speeches :rolleyes:
    Dang, its time to grow up for these black dressed Ultra kids......

    Yeah, I think its a step into the right direction, PackerFan71. Roundabout 80 % voted for a change but in fact nothing has changed so far because we need another vote with more than 75 % in summer when an extraordinary meeting will take place to make the final decision.
    Sometimes democracy is a long and stressful process ;)
    The HSV plus concept that I support would allow to bring in strategic partners but no (profit orientied) investors. This is a very important difference !
    I think I explained it before, strategic partners can buy shares up to 24.9 % of the outsourced HSV Professional Football AG (plc) that will be controlled by HSV e.V.
    Bayern Munich is organized that way for example.
    Unfortunately the second application for postal or online vote failed with only 73,7 %, I think that would have helped tremendously to bring through HSV Plus in Summer but thats democracy too. ;)

    I'm quite satisfied which the results though there is still a long way to go until we will have a modern and contemporary structure.
    Most of us got goose bumps when our '83 heroes Horst Hrubesch, Dietmar Jakobs or Thomas von Heesen entered the room to support the HSV Plus initiative. :tup:
    And yes, all of my free drink voucher were needed during the 11 hour meeting without any fresh air and daylight :rolleyes:
    But I refused to eat my free pea soup, better not when sitting in a room with thousands of people..... :D

    Winter break is over, Bundesliga starts with an interesting game between Gladbach and Bayern.
    Bayern might need some time to find their rhythm, good chance for Gladbach to grab some points.
    Hamburg plays Schalke at home, Im excited to see if Ola John, the new Dutch player, can help us immediately.

    I have a friend who played for Eintracht Braunschweig's youth team. Instead of turning pro with them he went to the New York Cosmos of the NASL... (actually played with Beckenbauer). He is still close to their presidium though. Out of solidarity I will be hoping they beat the drop.

    I'm looking forward to Der Cluberers and Hoppenheim. Most everyone in Oberfranken hates Hoppenheim, so a FCN victory will be great.

    Hoppenheim? You must have beer on your mind. Have you ever heard that Buddy Hackett routine where he talks about the Filipino salad guy who says "P" for "F" and "F" for "P"?

    Sure is nice to have the Bundesliga back! Gladbach didn't put up too much of a fight even though there was no Ribery, Martinez, Mandzukic, or Schweinsteiger. Robben didn't come in until the 79th minute.

    Meaning it was sold out, or they have a stadium ban for opposing teams?

    Bamberg's main rival, Schweinfurt, when they play in Schweinfurt, they won't allow Bamberg fans in purple to buy a ticket. They even stop them at the train station. It happened to me. It's like I was a criminal or something.

    Ahhh, perhaps you don't know. Even Germans in Oberfranken refer to the plastic Hoffenheim team as "Hoppenheim" as an insult.

    But the 2.Liga is still a couple weeks away from re-starting.

    The Foals looked terrible.

    Completely sold out, Bundesbiers. Its a small stadium with only 25.000 seats and I think they sold many season tickets after being promoted to 1. Bundesliga. There are no stadium bans in the Bundesliga, 10 % of the tickets are reserved for away fans anyway.

    Thats right :tup: Its because of their "owner", or better "patron", Dietmar Hopp, billionaire and co-founder of SAP.

    Well there's a first. Not only was their not any extra time at the end of the first half of the Freiburg-Leverkusen game, the ref blew the halftime whistle at the 44:54 mark, 6 seconds before 45 full minutes.

    Really surprised to see a Bundesliga thread here! Became a fan of Dortmund years ago when I was playing FIFA as a kid. Their logo had my initials and I thought it was neat and that's what got me started :laugh:. My great grandparents came from Rostock to North America after World War II, the club team from there isn't very good so I never heard much about them, but my Opa did follow them.

    It's been a really disappointing season so far. The whole Lewandowski saga and the injuries. We might not even make it into the CL at the rate things are going.

    Welcome, and hope you'll post here. There's some good peeps here and some of us aren't even Packer fans. :D

    FC Hansa Rostock (YUCK... HOARK)! haha. Well, they are languishing in the 3.Liga, and if they stay there its fine by me. :p

    Welcome from the sole Bayern fan on here so far. :whistling: These guys from Germany, the UK and Scotland know a lot more about world football than me. (I grew up here in the states but I have connections and family in Germany. Thus, not as steeped in world football, because the U.S. is still lagging behind the rest of the world in that area.) So I learn a lot from these guys. They can even tell you where to find good beer! :tup:
