I simply don't understand how a player like Ballack could be leaving a top European side for a rival side. Surely this guy has no Leverkusen heart or am I mistaken. Is there no rivalry between these two clubs and are all other German clubs then just "nusery clubs" to Bayern?

and is Jardel going to Hertha?
Frings to Leverkusen?

Just add your own rumour and discuss!!!

Bayern can offer him more titles, they always play for the CL and the Bundesliga, something Bayer just did this year.

Frings will join Dortmund and I don't think Jardel will go to Hertha...

Maybe it´s just me, but such a thing like a "Leverkusen-heart", as you call it, simply doesn´t exist.
I can´t think of any reason to support that team apart from liking successful clubs or having a soft spot for Aspirin. ;)
So why should a player care about L'kusen´s colors.

It´s Jose Edmilson from Olympique Lyon!

Jose Edmilson - Lyon

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Position: Defender
Birthplace: Brazil
Signed from: Sao Paulo


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Edmilson had been capped once by Brazil when he signed for Lyon just prior to the Champions' League deadline in August 2000.

Lyon coach Bernard Lacombe opted for the £7 million Edmilson after looking at various Brazilian centre backs – Joao Carlos from Corinthians, Claudio Cacapa from Atletico Mineiro and Emerson from Portuguesa. He arrived from Sao Paolo after previously playing for Jau.

Edmilson had looked set to join English Premieship side Arsenal, but the move collapsed at the last moment when the UK Home Office ruled that he had not played in a high enough percentage of internationals to be granted a work permit.

Edmilson, who like many Brazilian players, is a man with a strong faith, was an unmitigated success in his first year in France. He helped the team win the League Cup in 2001 - their first trophy in 28 years. They also finished second in the league and narrowly missed out on the Champions' League quarter-finals after hammering eventual winners Bayern Munich 3-0 at the Stade Gerland.

He also ironically scored a last-minute equaliser in the Champions' Leagu against Arsenal at Highbury in March 2001.

He was targeted by a number of clubs - including Barcelona - but insisted he would stay at Lyon for as long as God wanted him to.





He Says: "Off the pitch, I am Jesus. It fills my life. I pray, I watch religious videos and listen to religious music in my car. God blessed me. He is blessing the club (Lyon), too. I have a mission here. When everyone asks me if I am going to leave or stay, I reply that God will decide. I will stay as long as God wants me to."
- on his religious faith, July 2001.

"The first time I was picked for Brazil, I cried with joy. I was very proud. That also happened to me in 2000 when I lifted the Sao Paulo Champions' Cup. I was captain of the team, too. It was one of the most emotional moments of my career. The Cup was so heavy it took three of us to lift it."
- on his emotional side, July 2001.

"It was the first goal I scored with my head for the club. In the changing room, I said to myself that God had blessed me. I jumped higher than Vieira. I thank the Lord for that goal."
- after scoring a last minute equaliser at Arsenal in the Champions' League, March 2001.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And I don´t think Amoroso will go back, simply because Dortmund will not let him go!

Bayern can offer him more titles
i know what club i'd rather be playing for in the CL and Bundesliga this year...leverkusen, so Bayern Munichs dominance doesnt look like its always going to be the case
..it bugs me when two teams go at it for the league and at the end of it an interval player swaps sides...being a barca fan wwith the Figo issue and all

I can understand this disussion. Leverkusen is a small, small team, but if their players disappear the board has new solutions This club is very,very smart. However they need a replacemant for Ballack which I have have heard that they have got too. Ballack is not a normal player. I would say ,very unnmormal. People say Bayer 04 has got no fans except for gloryhunters who see them close to winning bundesliga and CL. Let us ask the Koln fc people, are you near? I am with them now matter what. I do like today's players. However, I am not as stupid as to believe that we will keep them forever. I have been to Bay arena, what can I say ? Small team, but still with a lot of soul and good policy, though. The policy is mostly buying young unknown players. They are being bought cheap and sold expensive. Can we copy that (we are Lazio)? One thing is that it is cheaper, but mostly it is good players too. Winning the league ( no matter if they lose the CL and the BL it is a great achievement for them) is one thing, but there is sucess, sucess, sucess. That goes for no matter how it ends. At least I hope Bundesliga is won for Bayer 04.

Sorry for my [email protected] english :)...what did you mean with this question?

Btw, surely also Leverkusen has their "true" fans, I don't want to deny that. And with Callmund & Co. they maybe also have the best management in the whole league. But across the fans of other german teams, they will never reach the reputation of teams like Köln, Mönchengladbach, etc.

TORSTEN FRINGS

After turning down approaches from Hertha Berlin and Arsenal, Frings declared during the winter break that Dortmund were his favoured destination, a predictable assertion given that the Ruhr club were said to be offering him £1.7million a year.

Even so, it is by no means certain that he is bound for Dortmund. Bayer Leverkusen are also in the hunt, seeing Frings as a replacement for Bayern Munich-bound Michael Ballack, while Bremen are insisting he sees out his contract, which runs until summer 2003.

But will Werder really be prepared to pass on an expected £5m fee?

I hope the deal goes through with Borussia Dortmund :)
has anyone else heard news on where the defensive midfielder is heading..?

Barely can remember having written that. I guess I meant you that are fans of 1. FC Koln. And I was asking if there are anybody close to reading this. Apparently you read it. Isn't Schalke 04 the team with the best fans, and Callmund (I guess it is Dortmund). I have no idea about how good the Koln fans are. But as they are close to being relegated (or are you already relegated) it sounds weird. No offence, though. For the die hard fans it must be impossible coping with eachother, but i am not that great fan of Bayer so I can tolerate a Koln fan.

Well, I think I'm also not such a die hard fan, who even denies to speak to a fan of the "biggest enemy" of his own team. Hard to say which fans are the best - I think you can only say which teams have the most. Last season I saw a statistic of how many supporters go to away matches of their club - I think Schalke - Bayern - Köln - Dortmund - Kaiserslautern - Hamburg was the ranking (I hope I didn't forget a team..). This season Dortmund might have some more then cologne, and maybe Mönchengladbach has entered the Top 5. Leverkusen is near the bottom of that league, fighting againt Wolfsburg.
And yes, Köln is relegated already...if Lev would have won at Nürnberg, there still would be a chance :)
