Weird thing is I don't even think the follow up is that bad. Obviously stupid for getting involved but it didn't look like a second yellow to me. Looked soft. Maybe they both said something terrible but it looked like they were both booked for lightly touching each other's heads.

Bochum vs Hamburg on BT tonight. Last time I watched them I thought both the Hamburg centre backs were really composed and looked very confident on the ball. 

Van Drongelen is 21 and looks a really good prospect, Letschert is the "senior" (26) of the two and is out of contract in the summer (hint,hint). Now that I've said this watch them both have absolute shockers.

I really can’t see why they’d go from Hamburg with 50k+ in attendances, a huge and brilliant city and promotion battles to go to a mid table championship team. I think they are going up this year 🙂 but I suppose weirder things have happened.

I visited Hamburg on a work training trip and the company put me up in a Hotel right at the top end of the Reeperbahn.

I can't say I was much interested in the culture of Hamburg at the time (beyond the football teams nearby, I got myself a St. Pauli shirt before I left). But I did leave the hotel early evening one day and go for a walk down the Reeperbahn. I got approached a few times before I started to figure out what was going on. I went to cross the road and walk back up the other side before going back to the hotel and had my fears confirmed. A genuine McDonalds sat in the middle of 2 sex shops and McDonalds wasn't busier than either of them.

I can't see it myself either, maybe my envy of their centre half options is clouding my judgement.
Although that said if they fail in getting promoted once again (They just missed out last year), I can certainly see some of their players either being pick up by bigger clubs or wanting a new challenge.
Also Hamburg have an average attendance of just under 50k 😉, so they would definitely prefer the 20k of the Riverside (for a bit of peace and quiet).

Grant Leadbitter has been given compassionate leave by Sunderland, Phil Parkinson has confirmed. The former Boro skipper was absent from the Sunderland squad that travelled to Portsmouth for a League One fixture at the weekend.

Sunderland boss Parkinson, speaking at his pre-match press conference at the Academy of Light today, revealed that the 34-year-old needed some time away from the game. He said: “Grant has got some personal issues at the moment and is going to have a few weeks away from the club.

It is said in the early 90's you had to walk the centre of the Reeperbahn for fear of being dragged in by the larger african ladies on show, so a friend tells me !!!

Reeperbahn isn't the worst though. You'll need to walk through Herbertstrasse 😉

    • We have an official Fifa Esports player now! he's currently guided us into the last 8 of the Ultimate Quaran Team tournament being run.   He has beaten Huddersfield, Walsall, Central Coast Mariners & VVV Venlo so far.
    • The Irish health department released this graph today showing the effects of social distancing and lockdown. It's interesting as (if accurate, and I have no reason to think otherwise) Ireland should be looking at about 15000 cases today but we are currently just shy of 3000 cases. Looks like we are flattening the curve here before we've hit critical saturation of the hospitals.       
    • A new study by from Imperial College London estimates that up to 2.7% of the UK population may have been infected so far - that's about 1.8m people if it's correct.  It's a statistical model though so you have to keep that in mind.  Also says that between 20,000 and 120,000 lives might have been saved across the 11 European countries they were looking at thanks to the measures put in place so far 👍
    • A quick addition to this interesting question, probably for the older supporters in part 1, but everyone who has travelled to support in part 2. part 1 when answering the original question I found that our time at the Riverside has been filled with great goals but when thinking about it I found that the goals that made me most exhilarated and hyper in my celebrations nearly all came at Ayresome Park, now I’m old enough to have been an active supporter over the 2 grounds but I do believe the sheer joy and communal togetherness of a Boro goal at Ayresome beats that at the Riverside. part 2 I also chose a goal scored away from home too, and I was wondering if anyone felt that goals scored at home or away brought out different feelings of joy and excitement. For me, I’ve been on many a thankless away trip but there is something genuinely special when you score away from home, whether it be a Bernie Tap in or a Karambeu missile like he did at Valley Parade, there all special but an away goal is like a good pint that comes with a chaser imo. You can never count on them but when they come everyone of them is welcome.
