You have to give 1. FC Köln credit. The club may be enduring a torrid time in the Bundesliga, but they clearly haven’t lose their sense of humour.
Over the weekend, the Bundesliga outfit slumped to their fourth straight defeat of the new season, a 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Borussia Dortmund.
It’s a terrible return for any club, but particularly one that finished fifth in the league last season.
Köln are doing so badly, that they’re starting to wonder if their performances aren’t some form of punishment from a higher power.
After the loss to Dortmund, the club posted the following to their official Twitter account:

Kudos to them for managing to see the funny side, but the fact remains that any side that has conceded 12 goals while scoring just one has a serious problem.
@God has yet to reply to the tweet, so Köln supporters probably shouldn’t put too much hope in receiving a solution to their woes from above.
