    that kid looks scarier than the ghost. think he is supposed to be a no nonsense centerback, but he looks rather big/strong. could use some muscle and bite in our back 4 for sure.

    Big and strong, muscle and bite is what we have on back line in abundance. Can we get speed and smarts?

    They all are among the strongest players you'll ever meet. CCV is strong as an ox as well.

    doesn't seem to be going well for a player who was training with 1st team in Summer.

    Last 11 games for Wolfsburg II.
    3 XI
    1 missed matchday squad
    7 unused bench player. Has been unused bench for last 4 consecutive games.

    there was a report like 2 weeks ago about how Glasner will call up 4 II players to Winter camp. Edwards wasn't one of those 4 either.

    Also this weekend is the last matchday for II before Winter break as well.

    maybe who knows, one can't know all the info about player fitness. But usually injured players don't make 7 squad or bench appearances. There are other players who can make the squads. And outside of missing 1 squad he's made 10 matchday squads out last 11 games including playing 3 games.

    Wolfsburg II seems to play back 3 and a lot of clubs don't sub out CBs due to risk of losing consistency in back with subs. The back 3 are 3 guys who've been playing full 90 every game.

    and regardless with this weekend being the last match before Winter break for II. Doesn't seem like he has too much time to work his way back.

    he played 45 min today, he replaced one of the 3 CBs(who also scored the 2nd goal) as he came off during HT due to injury in a 5-0 win vs Bremen II. Makes one wonder if he was headed for his 5th consecutive unused bench if a player wasn't injured?

    although that was the last game for II before Winter break.
