  • Wednesday night is party time!

    Unser Kinobesuch endete ohne Kino, dafür aber mit edlen Speisen und Getränken. Der deutsche Sommer ist auch endlich zurück. Was will man mehr?

  • Meine Damen und Herren!

    Bauprojekte gehen in Deutschland und besonders in Leverkusen scheinbar traditionell nur im Schneckentempo voran. Aber langsamer Fortschritt ist natürlich besser als gar keiner. Daher möchte ich einige aktuelle Fotos der Bahnstadt Opladen mit euch teilen. Es gibt auch schon eine Campusbrücke, jetzt fehlt nur noch der Campus selbst. Helmut Kohl versprach einst schon blühende Landschaften. Und der schwarze Riese sollte recht behalten: das Unkraut auf den Baustellen, es blüht!

  • 2018 FIFA World Cup

    Ladies and gentlemen!

    Last night, a highly entertaining 2018 FIFA World Cup concluded with a dramatic final between France and Croatia in Moscow. France deserved the title with a 4-2 victory over their opponents. Russia was a great host thanks to its colourful people. Several national teams such as Croatia but also Sweden, Russia and Japan surprised very positively. Numerous star players like Croatia's Luka Modric, Belgium's Kevin De Bruyne and France's Kylian Mbappé had the best tournaments of their lives. On the other side, there were also a few disappointments. Germany was particularly underwhelming and no African team survived the group stage. Germany's Thomas Müller was completely invisible, Brazil's Neymar frustrated us with unsportsmanlike behavior and France's Giroud was definitely the worst player of the World Cup Champions. The discussions regarding the photographs of Mesut Özil and Ilkay Gündogan with Turkish President Erdogan were unnecessary, nasty and distracting as they still continue as we speak. You can find a list of my favorite players and teams below. Leave a comment if you like. In a little bit less than four years and a half, I will analyze the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar right here on my blog!

     

    Golden Glove: Kasper Schmeichel (Denmark)

    Silver Glove: Thibaut Courtois (Belgium)

    Bronze Glove: Guillermo Ochoa (Mexico)

     

    Golden Ball: Luka Modric (Croatia)

    Silver Ball: Kevin De Bruyne (Belgium)

    Bronze Ball: Kylian Mbappé (France)

     

    Biggest surprise of the tournament: Croatia's national team

    Biggest deception of the tournament: Germany's national team

     

    Dream Team of the 2018 FIFA World Cup:

    Schmeichel

    Fernandes - Umtiti - Vida - Augustinsson

    Kanté - De Bruyne

    Mbappé - Modric - Cheryshev

    Kane

     

    P.S.: Take a look at the following FIFA commercial that attempts to promote fair play. In the second scene, a woman loses a BLUE bag in a bar. A man runs after her and gives her a RED bag. He changed the bag and cheated the poor woman! What does this tell us about FIFA? You got it!
