Neue Zürcher Zeitung

From 1995 until 2006 I was a regular contributor to the sports pages of the Neue Zürcher Zeitung (aka NZZ), Switzerland’s oldest (first published 12 January 1780) and most respected newspaper (that reputation got a little dent recently, but that’s another story…).
Well, as the NZZ appears in German, my articles for the paper were in German as well. I have attached two articles below, giving you headline and lead in English – if you click on the link you’ll get to the article in German.
If you are interested in reading more than just these two articles, please go to the relevant German page on this website – you’ll find it by clicking on this link.
