Sometimes football is rubbish. Today was one of those days! BVB were frustrating from start to finish. They failed to capitalize when they created good chances, there were too many defensive errors, and they just didn’t seem to be able to get over the line. For Koln’s part, they did a good job of making the most of BVB’s mistakes, and they defended well, making life hard for their opponents. But it’s still one of those games that is so frustrating because it feels like Dortmund could have done more. Perhaps worst of all was the fact that BVB appeared to concede two similar goals, both silly mistakes. Once happens. Twice is dumb.

I’m sure we’ll spend some time dissecting what happened today, but I hope we don’t lose our minds like we usually do when Dortmund lose. I think there’s plenty to be mad about, but the season isn’t over. It is a knock, rather than a fatal blow.

Unfortunately, we’ve still got to vote for Man of the Match, even if it would be hilariously salty if we only ran these polls when we win. It would be a little pathetic to whinge and moan every rare occasion that something doesn’t go our way... Right?

Anyway, the game was so frustrating that I had a hard time coming up with four players to nominate. I’m sure some will have complaints that so and so got nominated, but then who else would get your vote? It was just a little lackluster.
