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.

Hertha BSC is a club not only with a rich and colorful history but also has a number of accolades to justify them. Having had a roller coaster ride up until the early 1990s, it wasn’t until a large sum of money was invested in the youth team, that the club truly showed some exciting potential not only in Germany but in European competitions as well.

Prior to the Bundesliga, Hertha BSC Football Club was a phenomenal side which had a strong presence in every national competition and although they played the final of the German league for 6 consecutive years they only ended up winning the trophy twice in 1930 and 1931.To the club’s credit, they have also won the German second division competition once back in 1990 and have dozens of other regional trophies as well. The club have stood runners-up in the DFB-Pokal (German national cup) thrice but have never had a chance to lift the beautiful trophy. Hertha BSC have also been the winners of the European Inter-toto Cup 4 times which is also a great achievement.

All this success would never have been possible without a group of extraordinary players that played for the club through out it’s history. Pal Dardai is one such name and a player who has served the club for over a decade now with most caps for any player for them. He has played in a number of positions for Hertha BSC but has mainly played as a defensive midfielder. Michael Preetz represented this incredible German club for over 7 years in which he scored prolifically in which he scored a total of 93 goals. Other notable names who have played for Hertha BSC FC would have to include Dick Van Burik, Christian Fielder, Arne Friedrich and the list goes on and on.

One thing is for sure, that with the investment being put into the club to secure excellent talent, the day is not far when Hertha BSC fc would be rubbing shoulders right next to European giants like Bayern Munich FC, Manchester United and Barcelona football club.

German football club: Hannover 96 football club

A club with over 100 years in existence, Hannover 96 football club is a well established name in German football. However, with regular financial woes coming back to haunt them, the club does not have a lot of trophies on display in the cabinet.

The club has never featured regularly in top flight football and has been relegated a handful of times into 2nd and times even 3rd division. Hannover 96 FC have only managed a top 10 finish in the German Bundesliga once when they ended up 8th in 2007-08 season.

Prior to the start of the Bundesliga, Hannover 96 football club won their first German club nation championship in 1938 and repeated the feat again 1954. Although they have managed to win a few trophies of lower stature through out their history but their most defining and memorable moment would have to be the German Cup that they won in 1992.  During this cup they developed a reputation of giant killers when they brought down clubs who were then playing top flight football. Hannover 96 FC turned out to be the first lower division side to lift the coveted trophy.

More trophies are promised with the club’s owners investing not only in new talent but drawing in good names in management to help them in achieving their first German Bundesliga title.

German football: Cottbus football club

Cottbus football club is a young football club and although has quickly raised through the ranks and played in the Bundesliga with the big boys but have yet to win any honors which are worth a mention.

The Cottbus football club has only won the German under 17 youth championship back in 2004 otherwise the senior team is most of the times struggling to maintain a spot in the Bundesliga. On a number of occasions Cottbus FC have been found battling relegation and have been demoted regularly from where they seem to bounce back often only for short stints though.

Although, they were playing third division football not so long ago, it was a group of hardworking footballers that really led from the front and helped the club in tasting some national level football. One such player that holds a special place in the Cottbus club’s history is Vasile Miriuta who stayed with the club between1998-2002 and helped the club in achieving promotion to the top tier football league. There are a few other players that have played an important role in the clubs history and that are Tomislav Piplica, Antun Laback and Marco Kurth, just to name a few big names.
