I'm new here

Beitrag von panicfc » 26.07.2014 05:45

Well I've been following the Bundesliga for 20+ years.

Tried to find a team to support for quite a while, have stumbled along the way.

Finally, thought that my original team, from the days of "Soccer Made in Germany" on Public Television, that the team name that I thought was a piece of fiction, Borussia Mönchengladbach, will be my team.

Saw them play in 2007, Kasey Keller was in goal. HSV beat them 1-0 and the club was doomed. Now I'm originally from New Orleans, my favorite NFL team is the Saints, so I'm good with the struggle. So for the past few years I have followed from afar.

Then last season I was on another forum and made a few Fohlen friends, one of them sent me a pair of shorts, a practice shirt and a practice jacket. That was it, my first gear from a club. Deal was done. I guess I'm easily swayed.

Anyway, I just wanted to stop by and check things out on this forum.

I may have been here back in 2007 before my trip, but it accepted my name and now I'm starting this thread.

Hoping for a great season (i'm going to get Fohlen tv too).

Welcome Eddie to the Fohlenforum.
Good to have you here, hope the registration process wasn't too hard on you. :kopfball:

Thanks everyone.

Well I wasn't confirmed after relegation, I was still searching, but I found myself back to Gladbach.

The weird part is I don't normally like teams that wear green, heck I didn't like wearing the color, but now I like it.

Looks like the team looked pretty good against FC Twente.

Why didn't Twente allow fans to travel? Seems odd. Not like Feyenoord's "Legion of Doom".

From my understanding it wasn't the clubs decision but Enschede city council's/mayor's call. Stupid :nein:
The goals the lads scored, though, were first class. :daumenhoch:

Need to see the highlights ;)

I thought it was the mayor's/city council's move as well. Just seemed very strange.

Hey,welcome . Nice to have another English speaker on here. I think you'll find everyone friendly and welcoming. And, their English is usually better than mine. Check out bundesliga.de it you can find out which TV station shoes the BuLi in the US. Last season here in Wales I sometimes saw Borussia three times in a row live through bt sport.

Bundi has been on Goltv for the past few years. But that is only available on the SPanish channels, an additional $13. Bein Sport is on the normal sports channels for another $13.

Since my current work schedule is a mess, I'm going to get Fohlen TV and see how that goes.

Nice to read you :) Well, if you need help in translating stuff, feel free to ask me, I'd be glad to be of service. Or have you already embarked on the arduous journey of studying German yourself?

Thank you for the offer.

Thanks to Chrome's translation capabilities, I usually do pretty well. I tried to learn German a few years back, just enough to get around.

You're welcome. And great that you already did learn some German. After all, it can come pretty handy if one is interested in a German football club :mrgreen:

Frankly, I always admire people who try to tackle the German language as it can be quite a hassle with weird things like modal particles and nasty stuff like all the conjugations etc XD

I will happily take the point today.

Glad to see Kramer and Johnson in action.

Sad to see Hrgota and Raffael miss their chances.

Hey,

Just dropping by. Season is going pretty well. Hopefully we can start boosting the goals, but at least 2 goals the last two games is a start.

Hey Eddie,
despite the fact I didn't see a real good 90 mins. performance in months most results are pretty pleasing. Last nights Pokal win beeing no exception.
Would have fancied a couple more goals over all, but hey, not complaining.
Very happy in fact. :daumenhoch:
