Mixing Martinis in K-Town

Posted: July 2, 2011 in 1.FCK, Bundesliga, Transfers

While the ink has tried on Gil Vermouth's signing, the same cannot be said for Itay Shechter, who is still squabbling with the Israel FA.

Who doesn’t like a classic martini, shaken or stirred, gin or vodka? That’s precisely what followers of 1.FC Kaiserslautern are thinking as the Bundesliga club prepares for the 2011/12 season. Cocktails instead of traditional Palatine wine or local beer might be the way to go this year as the FCK front-office recently signed Israeli National Football team midfielder Gil Vermouth and are in heavy negotiations with  Itay Schechter, Israel striker extraordinaire. Of course, Vermouth (the fortified wine) is critical to a classic martini, and the FCK faithful hope the new player by the same name will be just as key to the ‘Rote Teufel’ (red devils). The Israel Football blog refers to Vermouth as a ‘poor man’s Andres Iniesta’ with a great eye for assists, and we are equally excited about what the 25-year-old can achieve over the next four years in K-Town.

While the new season is 5 weeks away and the summer transfer deadline extends through August (closes August 31), signings like Vermouth should encourage FCK fans everywhere. Stay tuned for our 1. FCK season preview to be posted on the Bundesliga Fanatic blog later this month.

We leave you with some Vermouth highlights …
