    Goes 90 in a 3-1 loss. McKinnie plays the last minute.

    At this point we can say Bobby's tea light is flickering.

    as long as he doesn't get the worst ratings on the team; there's room for positive outlook

    A positive outlook? About an American player? From @Suyuntuy ?

    It's on Fox. I'll put an eye to it between work, but probs not enough for a pbp thread unless others are watching too.

    I'm watching off/on while doing work/pretending to do work.

    Bobby just drew a foul at the top of the box '13

    Interesting decision.

    Wolfsburg seemingly scored in the '18 minute but VAR overturned it for a handball that occured just before the goal sequence but not in the sequence that led directly to the goal.

    Interesting.

    '23 Wolfsburg has really been on the front foot the last 7 minutes or so... no Wood sightings.

    '24 Bobby strike partner strips the ball from the defender.. passes to Wood... Wood plays him in and the striker isn't able to get much on it and is saved easily.. good chance for an assist there for Wood.

    What I wouldn't give to see Bobby Wood score a goal like that.

    Wood involved in the build-up via a failed 1-2, leading to a cross that Linton Maina placed to the far post, on the volley, for his first Bundesliga goal.

    Wood should have had an assist. Puts Bebou through on goal, 1 v 1 after a good first touch, and Bebou essentially puts it right into the keeper. Great save, but Bebou needed to do a LOT better.

    Set up Bebou for a 1v1 with the keeper. Great throughball.

    Bobbys doing some sweet set-up work. He's playing really well.

    I've only watched the last 20 minutes, but yeah, he's doing really well when he drops back into a sort of withdrawn forward role.

    And as I type that, he ruins a counter with a really heavy ball out wide.

    very good half for the Bobster. Good movement, good passing and he won almost every one of his battles.

    '53 Wolfsburg has had the ball the entire second half and has come close to equalizing a couple times.

    Wood just owned Brooks, played a great, simple ball across about 15 yards from goal, and the guy Wood passed to was fouled for a penalty.

    Bebou scored the ensuing penalty.

    Wood is having a fantastic game.

    Another beautiful pass from Wood sets up what should have been a goal but becomes a PK.

    That was only a little heavy. The announcer was right, it was the right ball, just screwed up the pass slightly.

    '76 Bobby looks played out. He should probably be subbed. He is such a high-work rate player and this late in the game he looks totally gassed.
