    And just got sent off with a second yellow around 89'. Dragged down a man who was clean in on goal.

    That’s a positive. The Germans like a player with bite.

    Professional foul. Love it.

    He had to drag the guy down because he was beaten cleanly on a play where the "final ball" was a blast forward by the opposing GK. But sure, well-taken foul I guess!

    ;)



    The highlights there aren't too long but what stands out to me is that in addition to looking physically capable, he's decisive -- picks his play and goes in hard.

    He really didn't need to take the guy down (for the 2nd yellow). he had two guys in the middle who would have at least made the attacker have to take a steep angle. But how does he let that guy behind him on a goal kick by the GK?

    Started for Wolfsburg II against Hamburg II on Saturday.

    "Braunschweiger Zeitung" says, Michael Edwards will continue to train under Glasner, but match practice will be hard to come by. Which is why he will be at the U23 on matchdays."​

    Original : "Sein ehemaliger U19-Kollege Michael Edwards war während der Vorbereitung beim Bundesliga-Kader – und trainiert auch weiterhin unter Glasner. Spielpraxis dürfte er dort nur schwer bekommen, und deshalb spielte am Samstag 90 Minuten bei der U23. Und so soll es auch in Zukunft laufen."

    Just to be clear "match practice" means "game time with the first team".

    I haven't seen him play at all, but I feel like for someone hanging around the fringes of the 1st team of a pretty decent Bundesliga side as an 18-year-old, he is kinda under-hyped. He's arguably in a better position career-wise than guys we talk about a lot more like Gloster, Mendez, Ledezma, Llanez, etc.

    he seems to be a solid though unspectacular defender who on the other hand is solid and unspectacular enough to have the first team of an upper half bundesliga side interested

    Brooks is bound to get injured for a few weeks eventually. So maybe a chance Edwards makes some 18’s this season.

    Seems as if he didn't earn that honor in preseason
