Tut mir leid, aber ich spreche nur ein bisschen Deutsch. Für jetzt, diese website ist nur auf Englisch.

Previous updates

Third Division no more!!!

31st May 2009: After some unbelievable luck heading into the final games, Fortuna left themselves needing to better Paderborn and Unterhaching's results on the final day of the season last Saturday to ensure promotion. Despite looking shaky at times, and Bremen reserves hitting the bar, Fortuna held on to an early lead (from a lucky cross-shot goal from Marco Christ) to clinch a one-nil victory in front of over 50,000 fans.

The gallery page for the Bremen II game has been uploaded with pictures of the game, the celebrations afterwards and the presentation the following day. Now all we need to do is await next season's fixture list...

10th May 2009: The business end of the season is here, and after the unglaublich 5-5 draw at Braunschweig today, it's a shoot-out between Fortuna, Paderborn and Unterhaching for the second promotion place and the play-off spot in third, with us sitting as outsiders at the moment.

You can probably tell I wasn't in Braunschweig by virtue of this update, but we were over for last week's win against Dynamo Dresden, and took in the reserves trip to Bonn the following day - photos for both are now online.

I've also added some links to the Links page, including some live-ticker feeds, in case the f95.de site isn't working (like today!) and the MaXxed forums (thanks to Tancred!).

We're travelling back over (en masse) for the final league game at home to Werder Bremen II, and hopefully for the play-offs, if it comes to that. Bear in mind the play-off dates could change (from 28th & 31st May) if Gladbach also finish in a play-off position in Bundesliga 1.

Cheers, Paul

16th March 2009: We're back! No excuses - I've just been slack - but, in the meantime, we've been to four games, so check out photos from the home games against Bayern II, Aalen and Stuttgarter Kickers, plus the trip to Union Berlin.

There's been some other changes too: About This Site now goes some way to explaining why Paul is a Fortuna fan, and all of the previous updates have now been swept onto their own page here.

And I promise to update more frequently in future too - honest!

30th September 2008: Okay, it's been a while, but that's partly the fault of getting across to four games already. It's been a mixed start for Fortuna, with a rude awakening at home to relegated Paderborn (1-4), but a couple of good away wins (including the 4-0 demolition of Burghausen) have provided a springboard. Also included in this update are photos from the 0-0 draw at home to Unterhaching and a few from the exceptionally lucky away win in Aue.

We've got trips planned for the Bayern II and Aalen home matches, as well as Union Berlin away, all before Christmas. After then, it's anyone's guess given how shaky the economy is right now...

28th June 2008: So close yet so far! At least we've a new nationwide league to look forward to next season, but the bad news is that we're still as far from the Bundesliga as we were a year ago! AnywayI know it's been a while, but photos from the home wins against RW Oberhausen, BVB Reserves and Babelsberg have now been added. The only other thing to add today ahead of the Euro 2008 final is...

Viel Glück Deutschland!

8 March 2008: Photos from the great home wins against Wuppertal and Cottbus Reserves are now online.

20 January 2008: No fewer than 4 galleries have now been added (covering Braunschweig and Union Berlin at home, plus Magdeburg and RWE away). And as an apology for not updating for so long, and partially due to a request from Andy in Australia, we can also bring you a range of Fortuna-themed wallpapers to download and customise your PC with.

28 November 2007: An update is coming soon - honest! Pressure of work (and Scotland games) have kept me away from most Fortuna games, but photos from the Magdeburg and Braunschweig games are coming soon (as well as the Union Berlin home and Essen away matches).

30 August 2007: Another away game, another away game, this time in Cottbus. Spitzenreiter, Spitzenreiter...

12 August 2007: What a start to the season? The draw with Essen aside, two away games have brought maximum points, despite conceding (and saving) two penalties and having a player sent off in both games! What's more, both wins have reversed long-standing trends (first opening day win in 13 years; first away win in Wuppertal for 34 years!). We were lucky enough to visit both Union Berlin and Wuppertal - whisper it, but things are looking good...

23 June 2007: A little late, but pics from the Kiel defeat and the final game against Gladbach are now up. Coming soon: a review of the season (not good!), and more updates.

29 April 2007: Pics from a pair of defeats to Berlin teams are now online, as Fortuna's bad run continues.

20 March 2007: Photos from Magdeburg and the home defeat to Wuppertal now online. Next planned game: Hertha on Easter Saturday.

7 March 2007: An epic game with Dresden and a very strange day, with a lot of publicity generated for this website thanks to a Fortuna Aktuelle article and a pitchside interview - all thanks to a mix-up over a match ticket (I'll explain in a few weeks)! Anyway, many thanks to everyone who's taken the time to email, and maybe I'll see some of you at Magdeburg or the WSV home game?

Jan/Feb 2007: The website may have taken a breather, but I've somehow managed to clock up no less than 7 games before the winter break and one immediately afterwards. See the scores on the Matches page or check out the photos.

August 2006: Welcome to F95.co.uk, a brand-new (and still work in progress!) unofficial website for English-speaking fans of Fortuna Düsseldorf. This is in no way connected to the excellent (but German-only) site at www.F95.de

Over the coming weeks and months we hope to grow the site by bringing you info on the club and their opponents, photos and reports of games we've been to, travel tips and any other useful info that we can provide.
