Wood continued his comeback with scoring the lone goal today in a friendly 2-1 loss for 1860 Munich.

I think now that Scmidt is the permanent coach; it will further help Wood garner more starts and minutes for 1860's first team.

I predict he scores 5 to 7 goals in the second half of the season, helps 1860 almost to promotion, and gets called-up to play in the Gold Cup this summer.

As with Stu Holden, I suggest no matter if Bobby and Stu start playing very very well, do not call them up until after the summer. Let them just play club games and have plenty of rest. No one wants to risk re-aggravation of their injuries.

Meh. I disagree. both will probably be involved with the USMNT in some capacity this summer. Holden with the qualifying team and Wood with the Gold Cup. Wood has been playing with 1860 since the start of the season in August, and Holden will have at least 5 months of club ball under him before the summer. There is no need to hold off this summer.

Presuming Stu is able to reclaim his pre-injury form. If not, he'll go the way of Charlie Davies...

Lets wait about two weeks to see if holden can steal a starting spot first, il always be a fan and wait as long as possible, dont really want to see him involved in usmnt until gold cup tho...bobby i dont know much about but if he's scoring and playing for munich he deserves a us senior shot. But we've seen jk sometimes not give deserving players a chance (clark, o'brien). Maybe him playing in germany will help.

Not really sure Clark or O'Brien deserve a call up tbh.

Maybe not O'brien were to deep in the center of the park anyways with players that play in better leagues..but clark prob does after a year of hard work with a low team and being named best gk in norway prob yeah. Klinnsman has been impressed by johnson and hamid two young keepers so calling up clark isnt needed.

Wood scored again today.

Bobby scored the second goal in 1860 Munichs 3-0 win over Aalen in a friendly. He seems to be in really good form going into the start of the second half of the Bundesliga 2 season.

I am sticking to my prediction that he will be on the Gold cup roster this summer.
