The trip everyone's been looking forward to ... a visit to Hamburg for the final tour match. Andreas Mayer is disappointed to be ruled out of the match but is looking forward to meeting up with old friends at the club where he spent three happy years. For the travelling band of fans it's a chance to sample the delights (!) of the nearby Reeperbahn which is literally a goal kick away from the Millerntorstadion.Only four thousand fans turn up due to Germany's Confederation Cup clash with Brazil being televised live but they create a great atmosphere in the compact little stadium.
Unfortunately the football doesn't match as the Dons struggle in the heat going down to a second half header from Marcus Marin to end the tour on a losing note.Being in Hamburg the media posse feel obliged to take in the sights and Charlie Allan and I go for a walk to see the Star Club where the Beatles played back in the sixties.

Later we think we've been mistaken for celebrities as some very nice looking young ladies rush to us as we're walking along .... couldn't quite understand what they were saying but I think they wanted us to pay to be seen with them"" Later, Graeme Bryce from the News of the World is determined to eat a hamburger in the city which gave that delicacy its name so we stop at a pavement cafe where Graeme asks for a "Bitburger" thinking that to be German for some sort of burger. Turns out it's a beer! Great hilarity all round.
