Still not a bad return, I’m surprised we haven’t dicked it up yet. Away to Livingston this afternoon though.

If a chap was buying a Hertha hoodie, with a Berlin district on it, which would be the correct one? I'm thinking Brandenberg. Turbine Potsdam don't seem to have hoodies.

Well, we aren't part of Berlin here, so no wonder you don't find anything. Brandenburg (not -berg) is the State that surrounds Berlin. Also, Brandenburg an der Havel (B'Burg-upon-Havel) is a midsized (pop, 71,000) city within the State of Brandenburg. Read all about it here.

If it's a Hertha hoodie you want, I suggest you select Spandau as your burrough, because
1 - It's the Burrough Arneb grew up in
2 - It was the largest Berlin burrough in the British Zone when Arnebburg was under Allied occupation (that is, until 3 Oct., 1990)
3 - It was the place where you Brits and the other three kept that Hess arsehole prisoner until he did what you should have done 40 years earlier.
4 - Spandau is five years olde than Berlin (first document containing the name in 1232, Berlin, 1237 AD)
5 - Spandau ROCKS, not only with the Ballet. Seriously, it does. We have a citadel, we the church where Brandenburg converted to Protestantism, we have the most beautiful Havel riverside, we have the BMW motorcycle plant, we're fucking AWESOME.

If it's Potsdam you're after, they don't sell hoodies but you can get the T-shirt.

Since I live in Babelsberg (what could have become the German Cinecitta, if not Hollywood, without the fucking Nazi scum), you might have a look at SV Babelsberg 03, our local 4th-Leaguer. They are a staunchly independent left-wing club, with a proud pedigree of opposition during GDR times. Theey are clearing out their shop, so great gear competitively priced.

Ok, Spandau it is. I know a few people who were BAOR so spent time there as well. I don't really wear t-shirts, alas. Nulldrei seem like a team worth supporting. I suspect a "Nazis raus!" t-shirt might be misunderstood here though.

Oh , definitely. They have a family-like atmosphere, I even supported them when I watched them play the Hertha farm team once. They host the anti-racist football tournament every spring, Son I still has the T shirt from his football days. On the downside, they would definitely ruin our count, so I left them out.

Some Deasachs 1 - 0 Ross County

We had somebody sent off for two bullshit bookings, which didn’t help, but it was the kind of opponent we need to beat if we’d like to avoid relegation.

Played 11, won 6, draw 3, lost 2.

I know the team from seeing the result, but I don’t get the rhyming slang reference?

Ah.... I don’t think that expression gained much traction up in these parts.

It’s an international weekend and I can’t say I have any interest in it. Half our eligible players have no interest in playing so I don’t see why I should be interested even though they could do ok. If Lianachan has no objections I think we should ignore Scotland’s results. Die Mannschaft are of course still counted.

Oh yes, btw.
Germany 1 - 1 Spain; nice first hour, then too passive, and a super-late equalizer due to an experienced player making a hyperstupid offside mistake.

It's in that obscure Nations League competition, so it counts.

Played 13, won 7, drawn 4, lost 2

I haven't been able to support Scotland since it voted not to be a country in 2014, so no problems here.

Hertha are away to Braunschweig (freshly promoted to League 2) in the first Cup round tonight. In style, their newly acquired goalie fucked up the first time after one minute, miscalculating a free kick. The parade continued when one of our defenders scored an own goal ten minutes later.

We have since equlized, but HbwH (Hertha being, well, Hertha), I have a very gloomy about this.

Fürth away to a really small amateur club, Meinerzhagen (God, I don't even know where that is). Sho-sh-shoululd be easy, but FbwF, it probably won't be.

3-2 for Braunschweig shortly before half time. Stupid penalty, goalie saves it, but deflects it into the box where the forward takes rebounds and says thank you.
