K'Lautern just won their last German Cup game against Energie Cottbus on 11/6/02. The final score was 1-0, though Klose was not the scorer for FCK. The next German Cup game will be on December 4th, 2002, in which FCK will play at home against 2nd Bundesliga team SC Freiburg. The last time FCK won the cup was in 1996. Let's hope they are the champions this year!!
Here were the results for the latest rounds of the Bundesliga (since the game against Leverkusen):

Round 10: (11/13/02) FCK 0:2 Bochum
Round 11: (11/02/02) FCK 2:2 Rostock
Round 12: (11/9/02) FCK 0:1 Hannover

The round 10 game was made up after it was initially delayed because of bad weather.

Klose currently has 3 goals in the Bundesliga (leading scorers: Elber with 10 goals for Bayern and Christiansen with 10 for Bochum).

The next game will be tommorow (11/17/02) away at Werder Bremen. FCK needs to win against Bremen to stay second-to-last on the Bundesliga table (they currently have 7 points).

Financially-troubled 1. FC Kaiserslautern have been given a massive boost by a collection of German banks who have agreed to lend the Bundesliga side $20m euros.
The generous loan effectively cancels out the Red Devils' 17.8m overdraft and will also help finance the rennovation of the Fritz-Walter stadium in time for the 2006 World Cup.

In the 9th round of the Bundesliga, FCK has lost an away game to Bayer Leverkusen (1:0). The only scorer of the game was Thomas Bradric of Bayer in the 19th minute. It is not surprising, because K'Lautern has not won a match between the two since the 1995 season. The best result has been a tie, and Bayer has won the last eight games in a row. It is still disappointing for us fans, however, because K'Lautern remains second to last on the Bundesliga table--since Cottbus also lost their game today, they are still in last place. FCK has won only ONE game this season out of a possible nine. They have six points to show for their efforts, dismal compared with the leader, Bayern Munchen, which have 22 points. Klose, meanwhile, has scored only three goals so far. Last season, his tally was sixteen. Let's all of us hope that FCK does better next week, when they go up against Bochum at home. (FCK has a 4-0-2 record against them--much better than with Bayer.)

It's official: 1. FC Kaiserslautern has sold the transfer rights of our Miro. Rumors have been circulating, but the news was made official a few days ago. With this agreement, should Klose transfer before his contract with K'Lautern is over, the lottery company Lotto Rheinland-Pflaz will recieve all of his transfer fees--up to 6.25 million euros. In exchange, K'Lautern has received a 5 million euro loan to bail them out during their current financial trouble, though they are still 13 million euros in debt. Not to worry, fans...Klose has not been affected at all financially, and he will still earn his (very) high salary even if he transfers to Roma or Bayern.

10/16/2002. Debt-ridden Bundesliga side 1. FC Kaiserslautern have found an unusual way of relieving their current financial plight by selling the transfer rights to their star player Miroslav Klose to the regional lottery council for the Rheinland - Lotto Rheinland-Pfalz GmbH - in exchange for a €5m loan

"Lotto Rheinland-Pfalz has helped us in the most difficult time of the club's history and we're more than grateful for that," beamed Lautern chairman Rene Jaeggi, who still finds his club a reported €13m in debt.

Under the unique agreement, the lottery would receive the transfer fee of Klose, 24, is to be sold before his contract expires in 2005. Lottery manager Hans-Peter Schossler explained, however, that the arrangement was only made as a security measure and concluded: "I hope Klose remains with Kaiserslautern for a long time."}
