First trophy of many! My MOTM- Chris Samba, their was only really one Star performer today and that was Congo international Chris Samba, Samba was a rock at the back again preventing any of the Hertha attack of having any threats to goal. He also bagged us the first goal with a mounting header past the stranded keeper.
Player most disappointed in- McKirdy, McKirdy countlessly gave the ball away and couldn't put a tackle in to save his life however he is only young and at least we came out with a winning performance!
The game- Germany is to easy for us, Hertha only had one decent shot all game where Steer just tipped it over the bar. Samba opened the scoring from a corner ball where he mounted over the Hertha defender and thumped it into the bottom corner. Whelan looked decent intercepting several plays and dispatching the ball out wide like he's supposed to do. After that Gabby was sent threw on goal where he fairly barged the defender out the way to tap it around the goalkeeper and fire it into the empty net. Gabby was sent threw on goal once again by Amavi but the keeper read what he was going do. Full time 2-0 and even though no one wanted to lift it its another trophy to are expanding cabinet, I'm hoping we can add one more to it this season :) I understand they didn't want the cup especially Gabby as its basically means nothing but a trophy is a trophy at the end if the day.
