FC Koln football club is one of the most successful clubs in Germany. Although they have not had an exceptional record within Europe but certainly back at home their record is worth applauding.

Not only have they been champions of Germany on three occasions in 1962, 1964 and 1978, they have also been runners up on seven different occasions. DFB-Pokal seems to be one of the most favorite hunting grounds for this mammoth German club, they have bagged the title four times but have been runners up on six different occasions. Undoubtedly, one of the highest points that FC Koln has achieved within it’s history is the runners up medal that received in the 1986 UEFA Cup in which they played supremely and became a genuine force to reckon with in Europe.

There have been some very famous names that have been associated with FC Koln football club over the years and of the most famous is the German star that one recall’s from the 2006 World Cup in Germany, Lukas Podolski. He is been one of the most consistent and ruthless strikers who have played the game and FC Koln have been lucky to have had him for a long time although he briefly played his football at Bayern Munich FC. Thomas Cichon is a defender who represented the club for almost a decade and served them in some of the club’s toughest times. Other players of note include Petit, Martin Lanig and Fabrice Ehret.

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.

Hoffenheim fotoball club

1899 Hoffenheim football club have certainly become a force to reckon with in German football since their amazing run in the past decade or so. They have moved up the ladder and have climbed up from playing in 5th division just in 2000 to now playing in the Bundesliga and eyeing a spot in Europe.

Although the club has come under heavy criticism from various corners of the press, it has also been seen negatively by other clubs and their fans since they believe that 1899 Hoffenheim FC is just in the Bundesliga because of large money invested in it and does not have a proper history or even a fan base. In the midst of all the pressures, the club has still performed well and won a few regional trophies along with their ascent from the 5th division to the top division courtesy hard work and enthusiasm of it’s players.

1899 Hoffenheim football club certainly isn’t known for big named football players but since it is playing in the top division now, days aren’t far off when it too would have big names in the world of football on it’s pay roll since money doesn’t seem to be an issue. However a few notable players that play for the club or who have previously played for them are Felx Luz, Francisco Copado, Timo Hildebrand etc.

VFL Bochum football club's performance

VFL Bochum football club have been one of those rare lower division clubs in Germany who had performances which have not only given them national recognition but also European recognition as well.

VFL Bochum football club have featured in the final the German national cup also known as the DFB-Pokal twice but were fortunate to miss out on the winners medal. The played the final once in 1968 and then again in 1988. The club has also won the German second division title 3 times and have been promoted to the German Bundesliga 6 times. The memorable moments for the club were definitely in the 1997 and 2004 seasons where they did not only play in the Bundesliga but also qualified for the UEFA Cup. On more than a few occasions strikers for VFL Bochum FC have been in the list of the top scorers in the Bundesliga as well.

Had it not been for a group of extra ordinary and hard working players, the mid level club would not have been able to enjoy relatively good success at all. Players like Stefan Kuntz, who proved pivotal in the 1985-86 season in the Bundesliga where he ended up scoring 22 goals for the club and in recent times Thomas Christiansen in 2002-2003 where he was the top scorer in the Bundesliga. Theofanis Gekas was another great servant for the club where by he scored 20 goal in the 2006-2007 season.
