Guys quickest but nearly cheapest way to Hoff ?

Not keen on a 3 hour train depending on flight times and flight duration.

I get back from Cyprus the Sunday night.

Might look at Lyon instead ?

Everyone raves about Germany and the Germans and I'm keen to go

You tell quite a lot of shit jokes, but now you're trying to explain them?

Not an expert on the area but my guess is you'll enjoy yourself regardless unless there's some unusual event. My experience in Germany has always been positive. Good review about the stadium as well here:

https://footballtripper.com/rhein-necka ... offenheim/

Away fans are housed within the north-east corner of the stadium within blocks H1, H2, G1 and G2, and thanks to the single-tiered stand design it can really rock when full.

Whether its due to the use of rail seating which permits standing or just the fact that the single-terrace is typically larger than normal is unknown, but one thing for sure is that the facilities at Hoffenheim’s stadium are really conducive to a great atmosphere for both sets of fans.

That's a newsnow feed where headlines come up and I post the strange ones. You know newsnow - the site you claimed nobody used and you got ridiculed?

Tell us more about the real issues facing the club, it's always so interesting.

So far:

We don't score enough goals
The players don't love the city
Kdb thinks he's David Beckham

You're a right one LookNidge :lol:

Haha all you did was bitch and moan about pep from the minute he walked in in pre-season.

And these "issues" we apparently have are complete horseshite.

You wouldn't be the sharpest tool in the shed, would you Nigel?

German Beer is Chemical free, Germany's alright by me.. German tarts are Wunderschön - courtesy of Mark Knopfler .

Germany is probably the most inexpensive , but fine location in Europe for good food , wine , Beer etc. You wont get ripped off .

Hoffenheim is small, rural and quiet , Plenty to see in Frankfurt , Heidelberg ,Mannheim and even Karsruhe , at a push Stuttgart to the south .


Lovely country and lovely people from my experience, same with Austria.


Austria is a fucking shit hole.


Each to their own, I love the place and have been many times.

Admittedly i've only ever stayed a week/10 days at a time skiing but i love Austria (been 8 times or so) and kind of thought of the locals as mild mannered version of the Germans! The french on the other hand are complete & utter cunts it's just a shame they have some of the better ski resorts in Europe

I think the CL draw could help us in the league. Tough games for our opponents and relatively straight-forward games for us (at least in theory).

Vorsprung durch Pep.

The Austrians combine the worst character traits of the German with the worst of the Italians.
