| Bananenflanken -
'Banana-crosses' basically. The term was started when legendary full-back Manfred Kaltz started whipping in
his crosses with so much curve they looked like bananas. The Bananenflanken normally ended up on the head
of the 'header-beast', Horst Hrubesch, and then in the back of the net, a combination that would serve
their club, Hamburg, extremely well.
| Notbremse -
The professional foul.
