This is ubelievble, we totally outplayed you and even with 10 men we were better. Brann honestly look like a mid-table Croatian team. We looked like the home team during the whole game, Brann playing Bunker at home ...wtf? But we have ourselves to blame we made in to difficult when attacking, and was very uneffective infront of goal. Schildenfeld's misstake (penatlty/ red card) was decisive for the outcome of the game.

This really sucks as Dinamo totally owned the game vs Basel aswell, it will be difficult to go thru now but I think we can take points from HSV and Rennes aswell, we usually play even better against stronger sides... but I'm allmost certain in wont be enough.

Yeah we suck defensively but we haven't played a match in 3 weeks either, and our season ended over a month ago. In addition take the injuries to two very important players in CB Sigurdsson and striker Winters, also midfielder Jaiteh, and losing former Monaco-player El Fakiri to yellow cards. We are in the middle of a transition period aswell, we have already lost our and Norway's captain Andresen, others are on their way out and we are still waiting for reinforcements towards next season. I wouldn't go throwing bricks in a glass house if I were you, looking at the table a mid table team in Croatia wouldn't have a chance in hell of beating you. We did, while playing poorly to boot.

But wrong thread.

Please don't tell me you didn't see the dominance? And the techical advantage of our players? We totally outplayed you! I was really suprised to see Brann this weak (first time I see you though), this is how a Croatian league match look for us. But like I said we only have ourselves to blame, just like we had against Basel. Sometimes football is unfair...Congrats on the victory though

Sorry for posting in the wrong thread, your FM's can move it.

It was easy to see Brann was out of form, the season is over in Norway and we haven't played anything except the UEFA cup games this month. So, we were rusty, but at least we got the important points. Nice to finally have some luck after all the results going against us in the first two games.

Dinamo were technically better but they didn't finish their numerous chances, and Brann took the few chances they had. Although Dinamo had something like 20 shots at 15 corners, you have to say a lot of the Brann attacks (even though there were few) were dangerous, they even had a one-on-one with Koch

They sat back and hurt Dinamo on the counter. It is a bitter lose for Dinamo but typical for any Croatian side, even when they play great they find ways to lose

If you look at the amount of chances made, the better side didn't win, but neither was this us at our best. I was horrified by our performance.

Luka Modrić:

- It all went wrong. We should have been 3 goals up allready at halftime. Their goal shocked us and it's hard to return with just 10 men, especially on a pitch like this. It ain't over yet, Dinamo still has the chance and we will fight for it.
