Is love to see jk call brooks in to the senior team camp today. And it has nothing to do with cap tying him

1) lets brooks know he's wanted and jk respects his abilities

2) lets brooks see what it takes to play senior level international soccer

3) lets brooks learn from jones, Howard, boca(if he's there)

4) lets Omar and besler know that there are youngsters trying to break in and they need to keep improving.


All valid points and I would agree with you.. just the likelyhood has to be he's called into the U20 WC then immediately following he's around for september qualifiers.

I think it's far more likely Brooks won't be called into the full USMNT until Spetember.

Anyone know how serious Brooks' injury is? He sustained it in the first half of yesterday's game.

I can't find anything in the German media about the severity of his injury.

I don't know what they are trying to cover up. Ronny was a tactical substitution because the combination of Allagui, Baumjohann and Ben-Hatira was a mess.

At the time Brooks came off, he had broken up two dangerous passes and hadn't really been challenged beyond that.

If he pissed somebody in the team off, why start him at all? To me this smells as if he has some sort of knock that they are worried other teams will exploit if they know what's going on.

Why would Hertha care which country he plays for? Ben-Hatira played for the German youth teams before switching over to Tunisia and Allagui also plays for Tunisia despite being previously eligible to play for Germany.

I am guessing that is your opinion...
I think we should not read too much into this, like bshredder said, it is tactical

Tactical? Everything I've read says injury.

It's saying he replaced the starter from there last match cause brooks didn't start. I could be wrong though.

Definitely subbed due to thigh injury.

maybe the "tactic" is to "protect" their young player by creating the illusion that brooks is injured - thus preventing him from going on international duty (a decision that will be arranged with clubs this week).

nurnberg certainly has this practice down to a science with chandler
