Haven't been here for a while, but I'm amazed to read that there are so many Lions fans in UK & Ireland. Do you have a website? I found only sites related to the "British & Irish Lions" which seems to be a rugby team.

By the way, I'm a German Lions fan and there are about 5 more at nfl-talk.net (the largest NFL forum in German language).


Hi,
We don't have a website at the moment and do most of our Communication through the www.nfl.com uk forum,we are still growing and at present it doesn't make sense to set up a seperate website .
My wife and I are just back from Germany as we were in Augsburg,Nurnberg,Bamberg,Munchen,love the Country,people and Weissbier.We follow Bundesliga Football,my wife likes Bayern Munchen and I love FC St Pauli as we were in Furth for the game they won that secured their passage to Bundesliga 1 :D

Great to hear the Lions family is growing in Europe.

Kind Regards

On my last visit to America, I saw that there is a fast-food chain named wienerschnitzel, but strangely enough they didn't offer any schnitzel at all. :-k

If you should ever visit the Wiesbaden area, make sure to have one at "Der Waldgeist" - they offer the largest schnitzels I have ever seen.

Billy if you are ever in the Saginaw Valley area (Bay City, Saginaw, etc.) I know of two places that have schnitzel. In Frankenmuth the Bavarian Inn have Weiner Schinitzel (veal) and Jaeger Schnitsel (pork). I am not a big fan of the restaurant personally but the schnitzel, sauerbraten and brats are pretty good.

My other suggestion is a small restaurant in Bay City, on the East side of the Saginaw River, called the Atrium. I believe it is On Water St. about 2 blocks west of Washington Ave. (main N-S strip on East side of river) between Vetrans and Liberty Bridges. It is attached to a bar called the Stein House which has a nice beer selection. The atmosphere and service are not great but the schnitzel and red gabbage or sauerkraut is pretty good. I think you can order off the Atrium menu in the Stein House which has, IMO, a better atmoshpere.

Billy, go to Jacoby's in Detroit. It's the best German food around! You can get all sorts of schnitzel at Jacoby's.

Thanks all,

But, I am in the middle of the state. Kind of far to go to get a schnitzle. But, if I am ever in the area.

I'm also from Europe, though I'm not sure how many of you guys here are familiar with Serbia. It's been through quite a few changes in recent history. :D

Ish sprechen zie kein Deutch. = I speak a little German. ( just enough to order a schnitzle and a beer ).

Mind you, it's been just about 3 decades since I was over there. So, I am rusty on my German.

Bundesliga = Bundes is a common base word for, ( well basically ), German National. I think, but, I can't remember which: the German Army or the German Police are called the Bundesphere. Liga = League

Bayern = I think that is a term for Bavaria Munchen= Munich Munich is located in Bavaria

I am not sure what FC stands for. St Pauli is the name of the team I think.

Furth is another town in Germany.

FC = Football Club. Just need to remember that Europeans call soccer football. :)

And yes, St. Pauli is the name of the team.

LOL. It's also a poor layout on the plate. It looks like something that someone with worms has already eaten and thrown back up. LOL :puke:

I don't know what that sauce is. I always got a sandwich when I ordered a schnitzel.
