Show of hands if you've never seen John Anthony Brooks in action.

Okay, now put those hands down in some popcorn. So... does anyone else suddenly feel like marrying Every Touch Footy?

He carries his height well, if that is possible. A very smooth 6'7.

Greg Seltzer said...

Yep. He gives that Zdeno Chara on skates vibe: it shouldn't, but it does.

Alex Larsen said...

I watched him in the Berlin derby against Union and, given it wasn't the best soccer being played, he looked pretty good especially when you think he's only a 20 year old CB.

Should I be the first one to spout some spazzy rant about him being a traitor?

Love that you just made a Zdeno Chara comparison, btw.

C. Goldkamp said...

Has he said which country he would like to represent yet? Would love to have him cap tied a some level.

Brooks Staley said...

Tidy defender, didn't have the greatest game in terms of his distribution going forward.

DrewVT6 said...

Wow...that is tiresome to watch!

Mike said...

Do you expect him to play for the U20's this summer?

mike, i think if the chandler case is any kind of benchmark, the answer has to be no. its the old club v. country debate, except its club v. somebody elses country.

Greg Seltzer said...

Wow, that may be your most wrong-headed post ever. Last time I checked, Chandler plays for the USMNT. And, ya know, they are two different people.

mike, i think what greg meant to say was that a german club coach is not going to be enthusiastic about his starting center half playing in a summer kiddie tournament, the summer before his team enters the bundas league to boot.

Greg Seltzer said...

No, that's not what I meant.
