While we have plenty of highlights from goals and assists around the world, there were some very forgettable performances and Bobby Wood couldn’t even get on the roster in Germany.

Let’s get to the highs & lows from the past week.

Aron Johannsson
A-Jo is on fire right now. He’s come off the bench the last two matches for Werder Bremen and given them life. He was robbed of credit last week for a match winner at the death, but on Friday he entered the match at half time and scored in the 78’ min to bring them level with Gladbach at 2-2.

Kenny Saief
The Anderlecht man is playing very well at the moment and recorded another assist over the weekend in a 3-2 win over Zulte-Waregem. He’s got three assists & a goal in eight starts over 11 appearances this season.

Tim Ream
Fulham have not lost in nine straight matches and picked up another HUGE win over Derby County to leapfrog them and move into 4th place. Ream has been the anchor of the backline and continues to turn in solid numbers. He completed 37/39 passes, didn’t lose a single duel or aerial, and had nine clearances.

Joe Gyau
The 25 year old scored Sonnenhof’s loan goal in a 2-1 loss to Unterhaching down in the 3 Liga in Germany.

DeAndre Yedlin
Yedlin and Newcastle were the unfortunate victims of 2nd place Liverpool over the weekend. He went all 90 minutes of the 2-0 loss and the Magpies are in 16th place, just two points clear of the relegation zone.

Weston McKennie
The 20 year old made his first appearance since January 21st on Saturday as he came on for the final 10 mintues of a 1-0 win over Hertha Berlin.

Danny Williams
Williams was on the field for all 90 minutes as Huddersfield Town were defeated by a final of 2-0 by Tottenham Hotspur.

Jorge Villafaña
The left-back went 90 minutes as Santos defeated Necaxa 2-1.

Antonee Robinson
He went all 90 minutes at left-back for Bolton but it was a night to forget for the 20 year old Everton loanee. He completed just 42% of his passes and was lost possession a couple times.

Timmy Chandler
Chandler and his Eintracht Frankfurt side picked up three points in a 1-0 win over Hannover and have gone level with BvB at 42 points. Timmy didn’t have the best day as he completed only 48% of his passes, but he did contribute to the shutout.

Geoff Cameron
He picked up a yellow card for Stoke in a 0-0 draw at Southampton on Saturday. He went all 90 minutes in a defensive midfield role.

Julian Green
Green has been stringing together decent performances for Gruether Fürth in the 2nd division in Germany. He’s finally become a regular starter and went 85 minutes in a 2-0 win over Nürnberg. Big win for his side as they beat the 2nd place team to stay out of the relegation zone.

Matt Miazga
Over in the Dutch league Miazga went 90 for Vitesse in a 3-2 win over 2nd place Ajax. Vitesse are in 6th place in the Eredivisie.

Christian Pulisic
Pulisic was on the bench for most of Dortmund’s 1-1 draw with RB Leipzig. He came on for the last two minutes of regulation and only got 3 touches on the ball.

Andrija Novakovich
The 21 year old scored in the 2nd division in the Netherlands over the weekend. His 15 goals are good for 3rd in the league.

Timothy Weah
The youngster made his debut for PSG. Check out the Youth Update for more on him.

William Yarbrough
He got himself a shutout between the sticks for Leon in a 3-0 win over Pumas.

Bobby Wood
He had been relegated to a substitute fighting for garbage minutes, but failed to even be named to the roster for Hamburger SV’s 0-0 draw with Mainz 05.

Landon Donovan
The 36 year old made a 6 minute appearance for Leon. He now totals 22 minutes in 3 appearances since debuting for the Liga MX side a month ago.
