Nightmare performance. Reo-coker or the fonz my men of the match. Just shows we need a stronger squad at this level. Hamburg played well so not all bad. Oh yea, and we already qualified! Bring on january!

At the end of the day our 1st can battle with the best of them. We threw 2 games and still qualified, we could/should of topped a difficult group had we risked our 1st teamers.

hamburg are an excellent team, almost all full international players. could've been worse, at least we got the goal back! even our full squad might've lost. not worth knackering em out since we're through.

Fully support a reserve line up - except we should have Cuellar and Davies in the middle to provide, along with Shorey and Young, somewhere near a first choice defence as a platform for a better result. If they were more solid, the rest of the performance was not that bad and would have had a better edge to it, with a much closer result. As it was we should hve got back to 3-2 if Cokey had not missed a sitter. I hope we will put a stronger team out in March - otherwise what is the point of qualifying- it is meant to e what we were striving for all last season. Bary Bannan did OK.

That was embarrasing. as soon as it went to 3-0, I turned the tv off. Knight is absolutely dreadful, there was interview the other day where he says he is waiting for his chance to get back in the first team, on this evidence we will be seling him.

Sidwell was quality, in the first half they weren't giving us more than a second on the ball. By the time the second half had started, none of their players wanted to go anywhere near Sidders as he had scared them off with his tough tackling. We lost to 2 good goals although there were defensive mistakes before hand and Brad junior looked about 4 foot tall in the goal. Bananaman is a full Villan at last, along with "The Fonz" these were the 2 positives to be taken from the game. Our U18s would murder our reserves on this showing.

I fully understand and support the reserve line up considering we are already through .As for having to face better teams now in the next round,So what?If you want to win these cups you have to beat the top teams anyway .Having said that had I spent the money and traveled to Germany I would have been a bit *****ed off as the team that played still could of of done a lot better. I don`t blame o`neill,These players are saying they want to be in the first team,They get a chance and then do that. Oh well we are 4th in the prem and into the next round in europe,Embarrassing yes doom and gloom no.

I'm just happy that we are finally in a position where there is a much bigger (positive) picture than just one game. Dissapointing result but by no means the end of the world.
