Kick Off Sportspub A sports pub more Leipzig than Red Bull

In summertime, when the sun shines, Lune Larsen sits outside by the tables.

He follows you with his eyes when you walk by on that bike lane that everyone who is not a local mistakes for a sidewalk. But Larsen is not the attraction. The attraction is Football, the kick and rush from the English division, and the dong-sound in your ears. This is the right place to be nostalgic and to believe that football can still be saved.

That's what fans do, those fans that gather here to watch Norwich, West Bromwich, Sheffield Wednesday and Nottingham Forest. Of course, most people would rather see Liverpool, Chelsea and the newest billionaire-club, but this is a place where people still dream about the game that can knock regimes over and make people shut up.

Behind the bar, Flemming pours you a beer that tastes of pilsner and maybe scowls a bit angrily, just like that cranky Hobbit guy. In the background, loud Odensean suburb lingo mixes with songs from White Hart Lane. It's Saturday. There's plenty of time.

Kick Off is a comfortable and nice place.
