you misunderstood what i was saying, im saying your average american news station promotes him like he is messi, i think that is affecting his game.

Not misunderstanding at all. He is a talented American player. Of course American news stations are going to report about him. No where near the hype that it should affect his game. He is young and young players go through ebbs and flows. Maybe he should talk to some of our American Uber athletes then about pressure if it is truly affecting him. I don't think the pressure is.

The reporting would be even more hyped up if the US was going to the World Cup.

Isn't he third in minutes played for Dortmund? Behind Burki and Sokratis? It may be that he is a bit tired, mentally and physically.

I suspect that Pulisic will be the super-sub for a bit, as Reus is back healthy, and both he and Schurrle are playing pretty well. I don't think that Pulisic has played that poorly, although he certainly isn't firing on all cylinders (re the Atalanta away match, I'm not sure why he was singled out-Dortmund were all terrible throughout). He could have a number of additional assists if teammates could finish or Batshuayi wasn't taking the ball off a teammates foot who likely scores.

As an aside, Batshuayi's start for Dortmund as been criminally overrated. Yes, he's scored goals, and at the end of the day, that's what your striker needs to do. But his hold up play stinks. And I've lost count of how many times he's had the ball with a teammate making a fantastic run, and he either fails to pass the ball in time or fluffs the pass.

Well if you score often enough and your team keeps winning all your other faults will usually be forgiven.
