  1. Football as Hobby

      Sorry for late reply. We've tried a few times to arrange something in Braunschweig but not much interest, it clashed with my German classes too. I would like to play regularly and I know a few others would would be interested. Are you on the Braunschweig English Speakers FB page? Worth also asking there.
  2. Ausländer deciding on football club support

    I ‘follow’ Eintracht Braunschweig (mainly as I live here and for the first time in my life, I live within easy reach of a stadium, 10 mins on the tram for home games).   Ok, so they’re in 3. Bundesliga currently (having nearly dropped into the Regionalliga last season) and the standard is probably slightly above that of League 1 in England (and I’ve watched a fair few AFC Wimbledon games to be able to make that comparison).   Eintracht also mirror my team in England to a fashion. Both have history, but success in recent years has been somewhat lacking. I’m rapidly coming to the realisation that Newcastle won’t win anything in my lifetime.   That said I enjoy groundhopping, been to Leverkusen, Hamburg SV, Wolfsburg, and the Olympiastadion to watch games over the last season or so. Hoping to add a few more this season. Olympiastadion isn’t the best for watching in my opinion, I'm not a fan of stadia with running tracks - also applies to Eintracht Stadion - but both games I've been to at the Olympiastadion have been belters (2-2 and 2-3!)  
  3. Freak accidents

      I now work in an industry where 'test before touch' is an oft repeated maxim. If only I knew that back then...
  4. Freak accidents

    Not sure if this counts as a freak 'accident', I once put my hand through a glass window. Long story short - I had a job when I was a student in a pub. It was an old building dating from the 16th century, the glazing whilst not that old was of a particular vintage too (none of that new fangled double glazing).   Finishing a Saturday night shift, thought it would be a good prank to knock on the staff room window, where my two colleagues were taking a smoke break. Once my colleagues looked outside, I'd pretend to be a zombie or similar and scare them (it was night time, ok!)   Plan worked perfectly fine until my 'knock' on the window resulted in my hand going through said window. It worked to scare my colleagues at least as they were suddenly showered in glass, followed by me running inside with my previously white uniform shirt now blood red. Cut my hand to ribbons, I now sport various small scars from where small bits of glass embedded into my hand.
  5. Fantasy Premier League 2019/20

    "Hi"   That time of year already?! Assuming you mean the official one and not the Sun newspaper one?   (thats two of us then. I reckon I could add a mate here - Arsenal fan, sorry - who'd be interested too)
