Borussia Dortmund’s dominating victory over Gladbach was, of course, a tribute to the players, fans and T. Tuchel. That being said, I’m prepared to say it was also a result of the positive energy coming from Wirtshaus on La Brea.
As to the match: Super toll! All that defensive weakness we were hearing about didn’t turn up. Papa and Matts were completely in charge. Ilkay and Weigl took over the midfield. The Miki/Marco/Auba show look like they’re for real. Plus two goals from Miki. For those of you worried about the new Roman: can’t say, but if he’s as untested as this for the rest of the season, I’ll be very happy.
Thanks to Ben, Björn and the staff at Wirtshaus; Tom and Oscar from the Bayern LA Fan Club; and, most important because they showed up: Aleida, Maria, Armen, (Russell, great bartender), Bill, Steven, Brooke and Matthias. Finally, Oscar took the photos because his red jersey would have clashed 🙂
