Daily Hamburger: Winning De Ligt

Basking in the glow of a long overdue first league win of the season, The Daily Hamburger is back to shed new light on old news…

  • Sunday’s win in Bilbao
  • Bayern Bother?
  • Old UI vs New UI
  • The Best Midfielder in Serie B

Three Points in the San Mames

Hamburg recorded their first win of the season, at the fifth time of asking, with a comfortable 2-1 victory against Athletic Club in Bilbao.

Abel Hernandez scored after two minutes, justifying his selection ahead of Mathieu Valbuena, and Man of the Match Artiz Aduriz made up for his 14th minute penalty miss with what proved to be the winner from substitute Valbuena’s precision pass.
In truth, it could have been 5-0 after half an hour, such was der Dino’s superiority.

De Ligt at the End of the Tunnel

Last week we proudly announced the loan signing of Bayern Munich starlet Enes Unal for our upcoming Youth Cup campaign. 
Young Enes responded so well to training with a proper manager that he was going to be on the bench for the Athletic match. 
But Bavarian spies reported back to Bayern boss ruts, who soon put a stop to that, claiming that he made a mistake and wanted Unal for his own Youth Cup challenge, after all.

‘To be fair to ruts, he did offer Dominic Solanke in exchange, but with Vinicius Junior, joining Antonio Vutov and Richario Zivkovic in attack, I felt we needed a better balance for the side,’ droned der Dino coach Marsden.

‘I’m a bit worried about ruts.

He announced he would step down at the start of the season, and the players are playing like they know it.

He got drunk before the game on Saturday and forgot what team he picked.

Then, he’s moaning this morning about only having ten of the world’s best players, when last week he had ten of the world’s best players!’

The week culminated with the stunning acquisition of teenage centre back Mattijs de Ligt from Arsenal.

Young de Ligt is likely to feature in League and Cup games with the first team squad, as well as the Youth Cup.

Out With the Old

Talking of teenagers, Manager Marsden made a schoolboy error last week.

Sick of the intrusive, stupid and unwanted attention of SM’s new ‘improved’ page-swallowing privacy notice, and slow unresponsive new UI, he switched back to using the old UI.

Put a bid in like everyone else for Portuguese starlet Ramario Baro, went to make a cup of milky tea, and sat back flicking through some of his favourite magazines, waiting for his bid to be accepted, and the lottery of the actual signing to be completed.

He even went to the trouble of off-loading the best midfielder in Serie B, just in case.

Then, Bam! It hit him. The old UI free agent maximum transfer bug!

Gaston Brugman

It was with great sadness that Hamburg had to say goodbye to the Best Midfielder in Serie B at the weekend.
We wish Gaston all the best and hope that he can find a new club in Top 100, soon, as we are sure he has a great future, and potential to improve.
