With the Green-Whites recent stumble journalists have circled around throwing out ideas of a "crisis" in Bremen. Obviously most of these journalist types have never stepped out on the pitch because what they haven't said is that although the team is stricken with a string of injuries they have had the fortitude to gut-out draws. However as those injury situations are solved, the Green Whites will respond and with a tough match against Hertha BSC on Saturday, the call to arms has been made.
Todays practice featured the return of Claudio Pizarro, Torsten Frings and Diego. Along with Per Mertesacker who returns from suspension the club has a lot to say about the "crisis" this weekend against the Berliners.
In "coach-speak" Thomas Schaaf said:
"I hope that they’ll be fit for Saturday."

He went on to further note that Daniel Jensen, Peter Niemeyer, Martin Harnik and Hugo Almeida are definitely out with Clemens Fritz is questionable.
