This will be a good one. 9:30am allows for a little sleep in, and breakfast at the Cock’n Bull can’t be beat. Will Auba score the hat trick? Will Reus continue his torrid form? Will Shinji score again?
With Gladbach destroying Bayern, the day was already started on a happy note. Most of us had been up early to watch and we were revved up for Wolfsburg. But how would the team react? Five starters out with the flu. Wolfsburg undefeated at home for 29 matches. Optimism was hard to come by.
Still, our bad luck streak seemed to continue: from the crossbar hit on Ilkay’s free kick right up to a soft penalty call at the 90th minute. It felt like things could not go our way until a completely “against the run of play” pass from Miki to Shiji in the last minute. The curse of the away jerseys is broken!
Thanks to everyone who turned up. Our biggest turnout yet in Santa Monica. See you all next week for Frankfurt.
