wolfsburg football club record and performances

VFL Wolfsburg are normally known to be one hit wonders since they came out of nowhere to clinch a Bundesliga title which caused a wave of shock not only in Germany but globally. The club has never been known to be big performers and their record suggests that as well.

The highest point for Wolfsburg football club came within the 2008-2009 season when they performed exceptionally well and won the Bundesliga title beating sides of the caliber of Bayern Munich, Bayer Leverkeusen and other big boys of German football. Having won the Bundesliga title many of us would have thought the club would have done really well in other national tournaments if not in Europe but in reality even that picture is gloomy. In DFB-Pokal which is also at times known as the German national cup, VFL Wolfsburg football club have only been runners up once in the 1994-1995 season.

Over the years, the club has won a few amateur tournaments though such is not a performance associated with a club that has been the champions of Germany. In the midst of all this, one thing is very positive, VFL Wolsburg have been performing exceptionally well within the youth circuit in the recent years which only testifies that the club has a really bright future ahead.

Apart from winning the ‘South West Cup’, a trophy in which the reserve players take part, eight times, Mainz 05 FC do not have any notable achievements to write home about.

The most important achievement for the club is that in the recent years even though have faced relegation from the top flight division regularly, they have often bounced backed and are trying to draw in investors who could change the fate of this club by investing big money in the infrastructure and players.

Mainz 05 Football club have however had a good start to the 21st century not only because they have been constantly playing with the big boys but also because in the German national cup called DFB-Pokal they finished as semi finalists in 2009. More so, in 2005, due to their fair play they won a ticket to play in the UEFA Cup. With the club still struggling on many fronts, it’s fans and hard working players are trying to make sure that the club works towards populating it’s trophy cabinet soon.

Playing their home games in Stadion am Bruchweg with a capacity of over twenty thousand, FSV Mainz 05 FC play in their usual home kit colored red and white. The club did not get a chance to play top flight football for a very long time since they mostly played in the German second division and mostly finished middle of the table. Eventually under the inspirational managerial leadership of Jurgen Klopp, FSV Mainz 05 won a ticket to the German Bundesliga in 2004. The very same season, they received a ticket to the UEFA Cup under the fair play rule eventually losing out to the subsequent champions Sevilla football club.

The club has since then been facing constant relegations only to return back to the top flight but there seems to be a lack of consistency which is frustrating for the owners and the fans. However, the current season has been very promising and the club is well away from the relegation zone which in itself would be a major victory for them.

German football: Karlsruher SC football club

Ever since Karlsruher SC football club was formed, it relied heavily on one thing and that was passion. It is the same love and passion for the game that has taken the club to levels which make them a respectable name not only in German but European football.

Under their previous name of Phoenix Karlsruhe, the club won it’s first and only German championship in 1909. They also have had the honor of winning the German Cup back to back in 1955 and 1956. They did not prove to be lucky at two different occasions where by they made it to the final of the German Cup but ended up on the losing side in 1960 and 1996. Success at the European level came when Karlsruher SC football club won the inter toto cup in 1996 and had also had the opportunity to play in the Semifinal of the UEFA Cup in 1994. They have also been a part of the UEFA on two other occasions as well but ended up crashing out in the third rounds of the tournament.

All this success for this 2nd division club would not have been possible without some inspirational players that really helped in lifting the façade of the team and taking it to the next level. A few notable names that deserve a mention here would have to be, Adrian Knup, Mehmet Scholl, Andre Cristea, David Regis and Oliver Kreuzer.
