Shame we couldn't find the third, but hey ho. Need to cut out these stupid mistakes at the back and show a bit more urgency in attack and we'll be ok. Fair play to WBA they defended valiantly at the end.
Sensational performance and result that. We rode our luck a little bit at times, but overall defended well and put bodies on the line when we needed to. And Hladky saved any blushes with a couple of good save and takes. Burgess especially good at the heart of defence today.
But it was all about us on the ball and making things happen again. The only criticism is that we really should have had one or two more goals given the positions we got in, especially after we went 2 up. The subs worked to freshen things up. The game plan was spot on; we looked like the home side with ‘boro visiting and trying to keep the score down.
Anyone here been to Hamburg in the winter? We’re looking for a 4-5 day break after Xmas, somewhere we can get to in a day on the train. Ideally with the chance of snow/‘proper’ cold winter weather. Stockholm would be our first choice, as we knowing it well, but it’s too far. Hamburg is probably the limit of where we can reach in a day.
Other options would be the obvious Paris, Amsterdam, Bruges, maybe Lille. Cologne would be doable, possibly Berlin too. Hamburg seems nice though with the Xmas markets. Just wondered if anyone could recommend and/or have any tips/suggestions.
