    Brooks goes through funks throughout his career. I would bench him. If you look at the Behind the Crest video he looks like his mind is somewhere else.

    As well he should. The guy needs some time to get his head together. He has been terrible since his stint with the USMNT in WCQ.

    Brooks's replacement let his man drift into space and then was slow to close him down, allowing him to lash a fabulous finish in off the post for the opener.

    Match finished 1-1.

    But in at the half:



    His CB partner Lacroix got a red card in the 76th.

    Wolfsburg damn near picked up another red card on a DOGSO but VAR correctly overturned the offense. The defender got the slightest of touches to nick the ball away.

    Up the depth chart by default after his replacements conceded two goals in the first 7 minutes, then one got sent off.

    The aura of Spector's mom spreads to Germany.

    I am hearing Brooks is having back issues and will not report for NT duty.

    it is being reported everywhere. Maybe this is why his play has been shite?

    Picked up a yellow in a 2-0 loss to Union.

    Been a very baaad stretch for VW. With this win Union leapfrogs them. They haven't won in 4 or 5 games, I think. hurts.

    any comments on how Brooks played? By someone who actually watched the game? ;)

    Fairly extensive hi-lights - looks like it was a good game and the scoreline flattered Union. VWs with some very good chances they just couldn't finish. Brooks not immediately culpable on either goal.

    JAB was solid. Didn't seem to be hobbled. I watched it on Saturday, nothing more comes to mind.

    Wolfsburg started the season 5-0-0 in league and cup, although technically that is 4-0-1 because they were eliminated in the DFB Pokal due to an illegal substitution. Since their 4th league win, they are 0-1-4 in league and 0-2-1 in Champions League.

    And Wolfsburg has already fired manager Mark van Bommel.
