HSV Stinks and Is the Worst Team in the LeagueBy: ryan_s | February 26th, 2013
Hamburg crumbled like a burger before being cooked – raw and mushily off the plate of Hannover, and splattered on the ground forming the face of Rene Adler.
That being said, the scoreline (5-1) was WAY worse than it needed to be. Mostly, because it could have been like 6-3 or 7-4 or something like that, if not for some poor finishing by both teams combined with some really terrific saves from Zieler.
Obviously the defense had an awful game, and Rajkovic couldn’t mark to save his life, but man did Rene Adler have a real stinker. He’s entitled to one, I guess, but this was really a bad one, and I don’t just mean a bad one in comparison to his otherwise stellar season.
The offense played pretty well, especially Van der Vaart and Badelj, but the goals didn’t hit the back of the net, and with the defense and goalkeeper the way they were, this created a really sloppy scoreline. But, with any sort of maturation progress, sometimes you need to fall on your ass to know how to get up.
