Of course, having fun in the stadium is different from playing in front of empty stands, but somehow I had been looking forward to this afternoon for days, because matches against Gladbach have always been tough in recent years. And the conclusion of the afternoon is simply: The Werkself is still on the road to success, the deficits and the points gap to the top 4 are eliminated after the weak first half and the last 7 games can finally put the Bavarian where he belongs.
Even though our substitution bench was mega-strong again today, our coach only changed twice. This brings for the next games at home against the Autostadt and in Breisgau all possibilities to smell good. I am firmly convinced that the width of the squad will be a noticeable plus in the next few weeks. So now it's time to enjoy the evening and continue playing next week as we did on Monday on the Weser and today on the Lower Rhine. So it is still fun to watch the Werkself, even if the fun is different than usual.
