3 games in 7 days for FBTG. We start off with Hertha BSC hosting Eintracht Frankfurt at the Olympiastadion on Wednesday the 2nd (having managed to bag tickets in the Ostkurve). The following day will see us at St. Andrews in Birmingham with Hull City, the game pulled forward two days for TV reasons. But the final game is the biggest; the 5th round FA Cup replay back at the KC Stadium against our newest nemesis.
See you on the terrace.
