joeyt Posted April 19, 2009 Share Posted April 19, 2009 A German football club will refund the tickets of 600 fans in an unusual apology for a "pitiful performance" that ended in a 4-0 loss at Schalke. Energie Cottbus supporters travelled some 610km (380 miles) to Gelsenkirchen on Friday only to see their team suffer the sixth loss in seven games. The club made the offer in a web statement headed "Sorry, Energie Fans!" Cottbus are second from bottom of the Bundesliga table and in danger of being relegated at the end of the season. "By refunding the cost of admission for their supporters, the red and whites would like to apologise for the pitiful performance which they displayed at the Veltins Arena," the statement read. "We lost at Schalke, but we were very timid against our opponents," Cottbus manager Steffen Heidrich was quoted as saying. Schalke's win put the team back into contention for a place in the Uefa Cup. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/8006621.stm Sounds scarily like us Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
