Dembele flubbed that flick on from Pulisic. Tough scoreless draw.

Awesome interview. Learned so fast to speak German is just amazing how intelligent and compose this kid is. Wow!


he'll be fine, he'll be fine, this is exactly the type of tests our youngsters need to be put through.

What to do how to think when the speed of the game gets absurd...

Starting again vs Sporting. Would not mind him getting second half minutes this weekend so he can be fresh vs Mexico.

Was pretty solid in thr first half. Was committed a foul that should havr been a penalty but was not called. Had a influence in the goal with a neat control then pass on to goetze and so on. And almost had a goal from a beautiful combination of play. Second half was meh.. For everyone.

Pretty awesome to see Pulisic rising so fast. That one two with Gotze was just magisterial. His deft touch to bring the ball down leading up to the goal was pretty good also. Not long before he is consistently scoring and assisting.

Hopefully he brings that skill against Mexico.

How far did Jones play recently with Schalke in the UCL knockouts. Did they make QF? Pulisic has a chance to go further than any American in modern era. Watching him play in a knockout round against Barca, Madrid, or one of the big EPL clubs will be pretty awesome.

Pulisic loves to run after the streaking attacker, he only really got burned once on those. Loves to put in work.

Well he'd have to make the SF/F considering Run DMB's time at PSV.

Damn Demarcus, it was an exciting time when DMB Landon, John O'brien, ish... were young and had full of promise.

We would say that DMB was the real talent, like the one who's mentally tougher and had more respect in Europe. I think Landon distanced himself rather greatly.

Thats why I prefaced it with modern era. I think the last 8 years or so, the UCL has completely changed and around 2008 or so is when the heavy hitters started to form super teams and really seperate themselves. Since the 08-09 season its been pretty much the same 5-6 teams in the finals every year with the odd italian team sprinkled in. Prior to that it was routine for a Portuguese, French, Dutch, even smaller leagues could compete. Now that will almost never happen again (maybe Monaco or PSG breaks through but I doub it)

Wow, I was going to make a facetious remark about "modern era", but you're right, it's a totally different competition now. I will say this, Beasley's PSV teams were better than PSV teams now in the modern era. So there is that to say about him breaking through in a european reknowned power.

I mean, we wouldn't even consider Ac Milan a power now, nor Inter etc

I think it may seem that way, but in my opinion, the best players have always played for the best teams. When new teams emerge (i.e. Man City), they will pluck the best players from existing "super" teams. Look at the caliber of player that Internazionale and Milan used to have, and look at them now. Those type of players now play for other "super" teams. Another super team from the early 2000's would be the Galacticos.
