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 😉

    • The issue with Round being asked to be DoF then when he got up here for talks, being offered Assistant Manager, anyone know what happened? Was the DoF role never on the table, mixed communication or what?! Seems so odd but gives a glimmer of hope than we might try and fill that role in the summer. 
    • give your head a shake man FFS.....
    • Bielsa is employing undercover spies again!, I did wonder why derby started crumbling again. 
    • Have to start the same team surely, even thought Johnson looked slightly better than the last 2 games in that last one. In terms of a prediction, Warnocks got 2 victory's and 2 losses so far....time for his first draw with us I think, ill go 1-1 Spence power driver late on rescuing a point for us. 
    • I don't think Warnock will have any effect on our scouting or recruitment. Pulis certainly didn't and yet he was publicly declaring himself as tasked with not wasting Gibson's money, it was just as shoddy under his tenureship as it's ever been in recent years. Warnock will recruit players for his style of play and we'll be left with them when he goes. If we're going to play the way he wants us to play, we should go for that in the long-term, not for just some short-term 'rebuild' that we have to rebuild again in a year's time.
