English speaking/UK based FC Köln Fans

Hi,


Firstly apologies for my lack of German, I will be attempting to learn the language!


My name is Stephen and in September 2016 I visited Köln from London to see the city and to see Eff Zeh. It was there were I fell in love with the club and since that match with RB Leipzig, I've followed Eff Zeh from afar and was delighted to see the club finish in the Europa League places last season. I'm looking forward to coming back to the wonderful city of Köln and to watch Eff Zeh again this season and I would love to do an away game as well.


I wanted to start a thread on here for English speaking/UK based Eff Zeh fans to discuss the club and the goings on in the Bundesliga.

Hi Stephen,

your first lesson. RB Leipzig is called Bullenpisse!

Enjoy the time.

It's actually called Red Bullshit Leipzig. So!

@Stephen, cheers and welcome aboard.

Hello Stephen,

welcome!

It's great to observe that attending only one game can have such an impact on others. Not surprising, but great ;)

In case of any advice needed, do not hesitate to hit any of us via personal message or just ask here right away.
Some of us are crazy nutheads, but most are also very eager to help.

Do you have an favourite player? Will you try to attend one of our European games?

Cheers!

Thank you. I will be sure to message if I need anything.


It shocked me to, I never expected to fall in love with Köln when I visited but the club and the whole day (the people we met, the atmosphere, the whole experience) just caught my attention.


Favourite player? I like Yuya Osaka, Leo Bittencourt and Marcel Riise. I'd love to come to a European game in Germany but I'm not sure I will make it. Hopefully there's a chance to play an English side!

I'm sitting here in a boring room
it's just another rainy sunday afternoon
i'm wasting my time, i got nothing to do
i'm hanging around, i'm waiting for you
but nothing ever happens, and i wonder
I'm driving around in my car
i'm driving too fast, i'm driving too far

i'd like to change my point of view
i feel so lonely, i'm waiting for you
but nothing ever happens, and i wonder
I wonder how, i wonder why
yesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky
and all that i can see is just a yellow lemon tree





Kennste?

Of course! But not too early. For me it's absolutely clear that our FC will reach the final. The only question left is: which english team will be our opponent.  ;)

The Final would be amazing, I'm sure I could get to Lyon! Which English team? Hopefully a trip to Arsenal at some point, I only work twenty-five minutes away.

That would be great, indeed. As they say: One can but dream.  :fc:

Hi Stephen!

Ever been to the Zeitgeist Pub in Kennington? Great place to watch Effzeh games and catch up with other Effzeh supporters. At times we were up to 20 Cologne lads each week.

As Diva pointed out there's a UK supporters club that regularly come over to games and stand in the Südkurve. Funnily enough the two main members fell in love with the club while we were still shite, but I guess it just makes us more relatable to them as they're a Sunderland and a Barrow fan. I myself am English, follow England when possible (I've got a FC Köln cross of St. George that I then take to games), but that'll be less next season with FC in Europe. Anyhow it's always good to hear that people from other parts of the world fall for our glorious club. Enjoy the ride mate.

So Stephen,

Are you British? That would explain your fairly accented English.

That's what we are all hoping for. Hopefully in London. Since my cousin lives in Harrow I'd have no trouble with accomodation or anything. Also, still have some balance left on my oyster card :D

@Heinzchen, "Zeitgeist Pub in Kennington" thanks for the tip. Will check it out next time.

There is also a british Fan-Club named FC-Fans UK. I met them at our awaygame in Frankfurt. Nice people. We had some beers together and they gave me some fanclub-stickers for my fc-collection.
