    make or break year for Bobby. It will be nice to see his motor actually get some service for a change and I'm excited to see what he can do.

    nothing to do with Wood joining. But for awhile, I've seen/read more and more people thinking H96 is headed towards relegation and with Hamburg no longer barely surviving it means someone else has to go down. Doesn't help that last season H96 were only 6 pts above relegation playoff and that they've lost more than one key player in the transfer business.

    If they go down it'd be easier for Herr Kind to finally take control. After all, Red Bull almost managed it with Dusseldorf in the Regionalliga (back then equivalent to today's 3.Liga).

    I should hope not. Back to back relegations (with 2 different clubs) that's Brad Guzan territory.

    kicker interview with Bobby
    http://www.kicker.de/news/fussball/...l_wood_sportlich-ist-es-der-richtige-weg.html

    The quotes (my translation):

    "I am more of a laid-back person," when talking about his introversion.

    "It wasn't an easy situation and wasn't a positive year in Hamburg."

    Now he wants to "look to the future (with Hannover) as soon as possible."

    "I think that Bobby fits into our team. He has a lot of potential, and he has already proven that," says 96-Head coach Andre Breitenreiter.

    "(Breitenreiter) took the time to get to know me, even though things did not go well for me on the field," the US-National Player says with joy.

    "I want to help the team and score as many goals as possible. My gut told me that I should go to Hannover. It is the right path for my career."

    I'm predicting a breakout 24 goal season across all competitions.

    24 goals and 1 assist.

    And he drags his teammates to a Europa berth.

    I admit I might be selling him short.

    They don't loan him to BL3.

    I'd be happy with 10 goals, 5 assists.

    Bobby has a lot to make up for. With his back against the wall, he will produce.

    if he wants to escape the Hamburg madness permanently, he'll perform. Now whether that's 6 league goals or 16; it'll all depend on him and his team-mates. Hopefully, he's doing his best to make himself welcome.

    10 goals doubtful, but 5-6 might happen. 5 assists that's his life long body of work.

    Don't sell Robert short. :cautious:He's hungry this season. The club doesn't look to have any real attacking prowess. So, if he starts well, that spot is his.

    That Fullkrig guy has 19 goals in 62 matches with the club. Looks a typical big center forward.

    There's a Danish winger who seems to be injured a lot. A Japanese striker on loan from Arsenal. A big Senegalese striker whose barely played for them in the 2 years he's been at the club.

    Ihlas Bebou seems like an interesting figure. 3 goals in 8 matches last season.


    Anyone read either the Hannover or Hamburg fan forum? I'm curious what they think of Wood going on loan
